The ground your home is built on may feel solid enough, but soil and dirt can shift, compress, or otherwise change over time. This means that your house may be affected as well when these changes occur. Often this results in sinking or settling. Because the ground does not change in a uniform manner, some areas beneath your home may sink or settle more than its surroundings.
This can result in an uneven foundation and uneven displacement of weight. Numerous foundation problems can arise from this, including severe damage to your foundation. If addressed early, it is possible to prevent such damage from ever occurring. Mudjacking is the most common process used to level or raise a home. The best option for you may depend on your particular situation, however.
