How It Happens
Expansive soils will retain water and will expand and contract. During the cold months, expansive soils will absorb water, freeze and then expand. During the hot months the soil will lose water and contract. When the soil expands and contracts your foundation will begin to crack which will lead to more problems with your foundation in the future.
