What are New York’s Common Causes of Foundation Damage?

New York’s climate is as varied as the landscape of the state itself. The majority of New York state is generally classified as humid continental, though the far southeastern part of the state, where New York City is located, is now classified as a humid subtropical climate. 

Between rural and urban areas, cold and hot weather, and the varying climates, foundations in New York have many contributing factors when it comes to what can cause damage. If your home or business is experiencing foundation damage, one of the following is likely the cause:

  • Erosion: Excess amounts of water in the ground can cause areas of soil to erode and wash away. Foundations can settle or sink into the voids left where there is no soil.
  • Hydrostatic Pressure: In addition to erosion being possible with excess water, large amounts of water in the ground increases hydrostatic pressure. As hydrostatic pressure pushes on your foundation, it can shift and crack.
  • Heaving & Settling: During colder periods in New York, the constant freeze and thaw process forces the soil under your home to contract and expand. This can lead to foundation heaving and settling.
