foundation failure could be a result of evaporation, plumbing leaks, or transpiration

1/ Evaporation

Hot, dry wind and intense heat cause the soil to shrink beneath the foundation.

2/ Plumbing leaks

Water from plumbing leaks is often the cause of severe foundation problems.

3/ Transpiration

Tree roots may desiccate the soil beneath a home causing the soil to shrink.
foundation failure can be a result of poor drainage, poor soil conditions, inferior ground preparation, or inferior foundation construction

1/ Drainage

Improper drainage is one of the leading causes of foundation failure. Excess moisture will erode or consolidate and cause settlement.

2/ Poor Soil conditions

Poor soil and its expansion and/or contraction contribute to foundation failure.

3/ inferior ground preparation

Soft, low density soils and/or improperly compacted soil beneath a home is the leading cause of foundation failure.

4/ inferior foundation construction

Insufficient steel and inferior concrete will contribute to movement in the slab.
