Around summer time, earth dries up due to heat and humidity
which can lead to the foundation of your home cracking and shifting.

From there, it's highly reccomended by the Foundation Guys that the foundation settlement issues are fixed by installing steel foundation piers. These piers will extend beneath the foundation, contacting strong supporting soils that will permanently stabilize your structure.
There are two versions of this that can be done:
Foundation push piers, which are are straight, steel piers that attach to your foundation and extend far below the structure to strong supporting soils. Or, Foundation slab piers which share a similar idea but they extend from stable soils deep below the structure to support brackets directly in contact with the underside of the slab.
