If it appears your home, commercial building or apartment building is starting to flex or distort, you want to find out the real cause, and stop, and hopefully reverse it. It could be soil settlement or more likely soil upheaval, but whichever it is, if the diagnosis is wrong your repairs will fail .
Don't deal with it alone. Every year hundreds of consumers in North Texas and other areas of expansive soil are sold foundation work they don't need, more foundation work than they do need and pay thousands of dollars more that they should for the foundation work they do get.
