The soil in each state is different. Some states have a clay soil that shrinks and eventually causes homes in the area to slowly begin sliding off their foundations. This leads to cracks in foundations and walls of the home, windows that won’t close, along with the separation of cement blocks and bricks supporting the home. In other states, the ground is made of sand and limestone that can give quite easily when a road, office building or home is constructed on it. This is why it pays to find out early on, and before making a purchase, whether the ground has been stabilized to keep new homes from slipping and cracking.
Good companies know all the methods required in each state to stabilize the ground and strengthen it so that when a building is constructed, the ground won’t give after a few years. These companies can create a more solid ground by adding polyurethane foam and water, plus other formulas into the soil to get it ready for construction of buildings or highways. Those who have driven on roads in states where coal mining has been the industry for years will drive on roads that are constantly being repaired due to sinking problems. Many of these states also have rich black soil, and when it rains, homes simply slide down a hillside.
