Some types of soil are more sensitive to variations in temperature and moisture content than others, and clay soil is one of the most fickle. It is expansive soil, meaning that it shrinks or expands when subjected to an abundance (or absence) of water. When the soil underneath your foundation expands, contracts, or erodes, it brings the structure with it. Over time it loses stability and causes a variety of damage throughout the rest of the home. Unfortunately for many homeowners, clay soil is common in Sedalia and the rest of the state and if your home was constructed on a short deadline or by an inexperienced worker, the soil was likely neglected.
