The Midwestern region of the United States is notorious for its ever-changing seasons, including frigid winters and hot summers, and Springfield, Missouri, is no exception. Certain varieties of soil are sensitive to changes in temperature and moisture content, and this includes clay, which is prevalent in Springfield, MO and the entire state of Missouri. Because clay is an expensive soil, it is inclined to shrink in dry weather and expand when saturated. When the soil beneath your home expands, contracts, or shifts, the foundation above it moves too, progressively losing stability and causing damage in other areas throughout your home.
