The best way to avoid a cracked and uneven foundation is, of course, by building on perfectly flat, completely solid ground in the first place. However, this is not always a possibility, and with inevitable changes in rainfall and geology, the earth under your foundation may not actually look the way it did when your house was first built. Usually, you have no way of knowing what lies beneath your home or what potential it has for shifting, settling, and impacting the foundation of your house.
A common cause of foundation damage is improper drainage. When water accumulates under one side of the house, that part of the foundation can sink, causing it to crack and break away from the part of the foundation that is still supported by solid ground. This can lead to further drainage issues, as well as problems with the subfloor in your house becoming uneven and damaging your wood or tile flooring. Sometimes the damage can even extend to your walls and roof!
