You may also experience sloped or uneven floors and water pooling around the foundation of your home. All of these things are symptoms of a house that has foundation problems such as a settling foundation. If you live in an especially wet area or an area that receives lots of rainfall, your home may be more prone to a settling foundation. The excess water can cause the soil around your home to double in weight. This results in hydrostatic pressure that pushes against your foundation, causing it to sink from lack of proper support.
