It is not normal for new homes to have excessive cracking in the walls within the first year. Expansive soil or geological abnormalities should be suspected if you have had excessive wall cracking. Some Arizona soils are prone to shifting, but with proper soil and pad preparation during initial construction, cracking should be minimal. If it is not, that is usually a sign of improper soil preparation and poor workmanship. Attorney Richard C. Gramlich has some of the largest per home verdicts in the state on expansive soils cases.

We access construction and geological experts to assess the cause of your home problem and to provide a complete and accurate accounting of your losses in terms of diminished home value, cost of repairs, and loss of use and enjoyment.
