Homes throughout Central Illinois experience all types of seasons that can bring with them excessive dryness and excessive moisture. The ever-changing weather causes soil to expand and contract. This change in soil density causes what is known as street creep. Basically, when the soil expands too much, it shifts the concrete from your street into your driveway, which ultimately pushes against your foundation and can crack it. If unrepaired, you could be left with costly repairs and even more structural damage.
