Warmer regions of homes are more susceptible to concrete slab damage. The reason for this is because the amount of heat soil receives determines its texture. For example, after a huge rain, soil will become mud. However, if the sun shines down brightly on the soil, the soil can become firmer. However, if there are trees or flowers growing beneath the concrete slab, there is a stronger chance that the foundation will weaken because of the moisture that is being absorbed beneath the foundation.
