If you have slab cracks in your home, they could be caused by soil-related conditions beneath the concrete slab. As a result of soil movement, many homes experience foundation settlement and sinking over time. The soil in Iowa consists of clay which is an expansive soil that swells when wet and shrinks during drought-like conditions. This inconsistency causes slab movement, producing settlements and cracks.
If soil erosion or shrinkage creates voids underneath your concrete slab, the slab will cave into the voids. Don’t ignore your slab cracks. This could indicate major foundation issues, costing you time and money in the long run.
