Keeping your home in good repair is important. Your home is one of your biggest investments. Making sure the value of your home stays up is important. Living in Johnston, IA, your home may be vulnerable to foundation shifting and settlement. The soil in Johnson, IA is expansive soil which means that it will expand when it gets wet and contract when it gets too dry. This shifting of the soil beneath your foundation will also cause your foundation to shift and move.
