Why Is Foundation Failure So Common in Winston-Salem, NC?
There are many causes of foundation failure, but in Winston-Salem, the most popular reasons are:
- Soil Erosion
After many years of agricultural development and deforestation, many of the complex root systems that once held topsoil in place are now gone. Consequently, underlying soil can shift more easily — especially during North Carolina’s increasingly unpredictable rainy seasons.
- Soil Contractions and Expansions
Another important feature of North Carolina is the state’s expansive red clay — a soil type that rapidly expands during wet spells and contracts during dry ones.
Taken together, these two soil-related problems can cause foundations to shift, crack and buckle. When these issues aren’t addressed, they can lead to other types of problems, including:
- Leaning chimneys, buckling walls and sagging roofs
- Improperly fitting windows and doors (and corresponding heat loss)
Regularly scan for potential signs of foundation failure, and if you spot any, contact a licensed professional immediately.
