Street creep is a common foundation problem that’s caused by the thermal expansion and contraction of concrete streets and pavement surrounding a home. Like many materials, concrete expands when it’s hot and contracts when it’s cold. Contractors place expansion joints in sidewalks, driveways and other exterior slabs so that temperature-induced expansion and contraction won’t cause a slab to crack.
Here are some of the key factors in street creep damage:
Damage from street creep is a slow process – the elongation of a typical block-length concrete street is generally only a fraction of an inch each year. However, over time, the movement will add up to several inches, which will mean potentially serious damage to your foundation.
