Greensboro Foundation Settlement and Its Cause

Dixie Building
Greensboro, NC is a city in North Carolina, which is the third largest city in the entire state. It is home to the Bog Garden, Bicentennial Garden, Greensboro Coliseum Complex, and to the World War Memorial Stadium. There are many attractions in Greensboro which make it a fun place to visit, and a great place to raise a family.

However, if you are a homeowner in Greensboro, or if you are thinking about buying a home here, you need to realize that foundation settlement is a problem that you could have in the not so distant future. You see, the soil in homes surrounding the area is rich in clay material. Clay is very absorbent, and whenever it rains or you have melting snow, the dirt is going to quickly absorb the moisture. When it absorbs this water, it will start to swell, expand, and contract. It may leave voids underneath your home, and over time, this is what your home will sink into.

Needless to say, a sinking home is going to look bad, and it's surely going to take away from your property value. What's more is that this is a serious structural problem that could jeopardize your structural integrity. If left untreated for too long, there's no saying how severe the damage may be to both the inside and outside of your home.
