Arkansas Soil and Your Foundation
Arkansas’ hot summers and cool winters, combined with expansive soil conditions, may lead to settling foundations, and that means walls and doors that won’t shut properly, cracked or uneven floors, buckling crawl spaces, and musty crawl spaces. Many regions of the state have what’s known as clay soil. After a heavy rainfall, clay soil absorbs water and expands in size, much like a sponge. When the weather’s hot and dry — especially with the winds that blow across Arkansas through much of the summer — clay soil shrinks and hardens as it contracts.
All of that expanding and contracting is hard on your home’s foundation. When the soil moves, your foundation settles, leading to a number of tell-tale signs, such as:
- Cracked walls
- Sloping or tilting floors
- Bowing walls
- Pooling water around the structure’s exterior
- Moisture accumulating in the crawl space
- Doors or windows that stick or don’t shut properly
Recent Arkansas droughts have made the situation even worse, with soil becoming so dry and hard that foundations shift. Some homes even move enough that homeowners can feel and hear the house shift!
