I come across some old houses built on fill that have settled an excessive amount. The one I looked at yesterday has settled a little over 10 inches more at the front than the rear. Despite this movement the house is generally very sound-just not very level.

Sounds like Amherst, NY. Dozens of hone's built in the late 80s through the early 90s are sinking. Some have been demolished, others repaired. Stigmatized properties are eligible for a 50% reduction in tax assessment.

If you want to build a deck in Amherst you need to do soil compaction testing.
