Bay Area Underpinning offers expert foundation repair services for residents living in Alamo, California. A majority of foundation problems stem from California's clay soil that shrinks and expands with moisture. When the climate is wet and rainy, the clay soil will have excess moisture and expand drastically, increasing the pressure of the soil and creating stress against foundation walls. This stress can lead to shifting and settling in the foundation, and cracks will begin to form. On the other hand, during hot and dry seasons, the soil will shrink. This also has damaging affects by creating voids and holes underneath the foundation.
