Have you ever thought if your home was built on a shaky foundation what would happen? In my #4 Thought Provoker blog series I wanted to get your attention referencing this important issue. Drainage and Foundations are two important items you need to know about your home. Living in San Antonio we have had TV coverage recently with home owners having distinct problems with their home from soil movement. End result foundation issues. Some areas in and around San Antonio have had problems for a number of years with soil movement causing cracks in the home, doors sticking, retainer walls not built correctly and falling.  Some of this movement can be caused from the drought and dry soil. One step further, type of soil and soil preparation. Back when I was growing up we had no problems where ...
