Raytown, MO

The homeowners of Raytown, Missouri experience foundation failure due to the soil conditions in that area. These soil conditions are a large factor when it comes to the need for foundation repair. The expansive clay soils in Raytown, Missouri cause the soil to expand when wet and shrink when the moisture content is reduced. This causes the foundation to shift and leads to structural damage.

Common causes of foundation settlement include:

  • Poor compaction – When fill soils are not adequately compacted, it will compress resulting in settlement
  • Changes in moisture content – excess moisture leads to weakening of the soil and loss of moisture causes it to shrink resulting in a decrease in soil volume
  • Maturing trees – mature trees close to the foundation draws moisture from the soil beneath the foundation
