Bob Brown is a certified foundation repair specialist and the owner of Arizona Foundation Solutions, a Phoenix, AZ company specialized in structural damage repair and structural stabilization of all types of residential and commercial foundations. For over 28 years, Bob and his team have helped tens of thousands of area homeowners fix their cracked, settling, bowing, crumbling and damaged foundations.
In this video Bob explains the very specific soil conditions found throughout the state of Arizona -- and especially around the Phoenix area -- which are often misunderstood by out-of-state contractors lacking the experience in dealing with these conditions, with disastrous consequence for area homeowners.
In Phoenix, under desert conditions, the clay soil has been dry for millions of years. When a house is built in this dry soil, water from the roof will run and pool around the foundation, and eventually find its way underneath, causing the clay soil to expand and the foundation to heave.
