Why concrete sinks...
There can be many reasons as to why concrete sinks: improper compaction of soils during or after the building process, water intrusion from bad drainage, and natural settlement.
Soils consist of solid particles and the spaces (voids) between these particles. However, void spaces in soil can cause big problems for buildings and concrete slabs. Concentrated loads, such as buildings or slabs, can literally squeeze air and water from soils. When this happens, the soil sinks and the buildings or slabs follow closely behind.
