Our climate is gradually warming leading to increasingly prolonged droughts. This past summer we saw more frequent heatwaves and hot temperatures than usual. Unfortunately, these droughts also contribute to the deterioration of your home’s foundation and can therefore lead to structural damage, especially in clayey environments.
During droughts, the absence of water at the water table causes clay soils to dry out and compact, causing the soil to collapse. If you have recently noticed new cracks in the foundation or anywhere else in your home, chances are these changes in the weather are the cause. Likewise if you have noticed that your house seems to have moved or is no longer level.
