. This expansion and contraction creates fissures and over time the continual movement manifests as fissures along a foundation. Another case is that plumbing leaks, inefficient drainage and soil prepping may increase the amount of water under the house to increase. Soil absorbs the extra water and expands. This soil pushes against the foundation and may result in a fissure. Also, flash floods can drive silt against a home’s foundation which over time can have the same effect. On the other hand, a drought could also be the culprit. Contracting soil leaves a gap under the foundation, causing the slab to settle and possibly produce fissures. In other parts of the country, natural disasters such as an earthquake may be responsible for the damage.
