ORIGIN OF THE PROBLEM
Foundations can crack and break for many reasons. Improper engineering as well as load-bearing displacement to soil erosion over time can cause cracks and other serious issues. A home needs adequate and reliable frame-to-foundation connections. Otherwise, it can become disturbed and displaced completely from its foundation in an earthquake. Additionally, insufficient lateral bracing results in a partial or complete collapse of the perimeter cripple walls, which form the basement or crawl space. Either form of damage can amount to a total loss scenario as well as major financial strain for the homeowner. However, there are safeguards you can put in place that protect against this.
