What Causes Foundation Issues?
There are specific things that our professionals look for that may be obvious to us, but not to homeowners, that indicate that there are foundation issues. It is important to periodically get the foundation of your home inspected to find out more about what you can do to protect your home and wallet.
If one side of the home is lower than the other or the soil below the home is not able to support the weight of the home any longer, it will sink or settle into the ground over time. This generally takes many years and is very slow but the resulting cracks are very noticeable. This may result in doors or windows sticking when they are opened or closed or cracks at the corners of the doors and windows.
One thing you can look for as an indication that your foundation is experiencing settling is cracks that form in your stairs, brickwork, or even caulking. These issues can point to something serious, such as your foundation has started to sink or shift. Do not ignore these issues, as they just get worse with time, consult one of our professionals today to find out what you need to do moving forward.
