If you live in Quantico, VA, you need to be aware that your foundation may be vulnerable to having settlement and failure. Due to the heavy clay soil and large amounts of rain that occurs in Quantico, VA your foundation could be damaged. Excess amounts of water lead to problems like erosion and an increase in hydrostatic pressure. As the hydrostatic pressure builds in the soil around your home, it will push on the foundation and lead to shifting and settlement. Erosion can wash away soil under your foundation and is another common cause of settlement. The expansive clay soil will heave when it is wet and shrink when it becomes too dry. This constant shifting of the soil will also cause the foundation to shift and move, causing structural damage throughout the entire home.
