  • Water under slab?

    I'm looking for some guidance with the following situation: My in-laws have a 40 year-old bi-level home that shows severe settling in the poured slab (no basement). They are not the primary owners but have lived there almost 30 years. I've learned that several homes up-hill from them have experienced structural problems from soil erosion under the homes. I'm no contractor, but I think the problem is from an underground water flow. The slab has settled several inches in some areas and there is evidence of movement in some of the walls. My question is how do you start to approach this type of scenario? Who do contact first for assistance in remedying this problem? No-one they or we have asked is sure how to procedd. We all appreciate any responses to this question. Thank you from New Jersey.
