You might think your home rests on "solid ground." But, the ground beneath your home is actually made up of several different layers of soil, each with its own properties. As forces of nature, such as moisture and frost, interact with the soil around your home, the soil expands. That expansion results in constant inward force on your foundation wall until it can no longer support the pressure, causing cracking, bowing, and tipping. Softening soil, soil washout, soil shrinkage, poorly compacted fill soil, and "street creep" can also lead to foundation damage.
Foundation problems only get worse with time. It's tempting to ignore them because foundation cracks often progress slowly. But every year that passes adds complexity and cost to the situation. And the thing is, you'll end up paying for it eventually, either when you finally repair it, or when you have to lower your price to sell your home.
