SETTLING FOUNDATION

Differential settlement of a foundation can occur for a few different reasons.  One common reason is the shrinkage of clay soils during periods of drought.  Settlement can also occur due to soil erosion, fill material not being compacted properly, etc.  The installation of piers (helical pier or resistance pier) can be used to support the foundation to prevent further settlement.  In some minor cases, water management solutions may be beneficial to help with settlement prevention.
