Homes having structural issues after drought

Homes having structural issues after drought.
While we are no longer in the severe drought that we were in a few months ago, the drought could still cause serious problems for you.
Contractors are staying busy trying to fix the problems at homes in our area.
The drought caused foundations to shift.
David Carysle is a structural engineer and he says, "During the height of the drought, we had houses that moved from one week to the next.
If you don’t catch these issues early, it could cost you thousands of dollars.
"This drought caused buildings that have been stable for over fifty years to move," Carysle states.
"Sometimes the soil under the center of the house dries more than the soil around the outside of the house.
We have done a lot of jobs that are tenfold on that price where it is very severe.
