after its closing date.

foundation of the home
had settled unevenly.
The primary cause of the settlement
was lack of compaction of the
placed foundation fill.
The secondary cause of the settlement
was the failure to install piers
to support the home’s foundation,
which was supposed to be completed
by the contractor.
5. Why compaction is needed?
It reduces the amount of air pockets in
the soil by packing particles closer
together into a given space to increase
soil density and strength. This helps
restrict air and water movement.
Major structural problems can arise if
excessive soil settlement under footings
and slabs is present.
