If you own a home or business in Iowa, you need to be aware that foundation problems can arise due to the changing moisture content of the soil beneath your foundation. The soil in Iowa is expansive soil which means that it will heave when wet and shrink when dry. This constant shifting of the soil will also cause your foundation to shift and settle. When this happens, there will be structural damage throughout your home or business that needs to be addressed. Ceiling cracks are one of the signs that you may be in need of foundation repair.
