rise during wet conditions and fall during dry conditions. Picture the soils filling with water then the molecular structure of the soils expand and the foundation rises and just the opposite during dry times.

Are you having extremely wet conditions where you live? Is the patio or extension area rising or the home falling?

This condition needs to be address and assessed by a Structural Engineer. They know these things and can give you great information.
