Charlotte Soil Conditions

Charlotte, North Carolina and surrounding areas generally contain mostly expansive red clay soil, the leading cause of cracked and damaged foundations in the Southeast. After absorbing water (from rainfall, tropical storms, etc.), red clay soil can expand to 10 percent or more of its dry volume, which can cause:

  • Entire foundations to move
  • Basement walls and floors to crack
  • Damage to upper floors and walls

In addition to expanding 10%+ from its original state when wet, red clay can also shrink when drying out, causing fissures in the soil. This can result in loss of support to the building or structure that lies above it. This is why proper structural planning and engineering is important when repairing or fixing a foundation.
