If you are a resident in Mission, Kansas, then you are probably aware of the soil conditions in and around your property. Most soil in the Midwest consists of clay soil which is known as expansive soil. This means it shrinks and swells depending on moisture levels. After heavy rainfalls, expansive soil will heave and lift the foundation. In dry and hot weather conditions especially during the summer months, the soil will shrink. These fluctuating weather patterns cause settlement and cracks in the foundation.
