KEY FOUNDATION PROBLEMS: IDENTIFYING SIGNS OF SETTLING AND SINKING

DOOR AND WINDOWS ARE SKEWED OR UNLEVEL

When doors and windows can’t easily close, your frames aren’t aligned properly, and your home’s foundation may be settling.

STAIR-STEP OR HORIZONTAL CRACKS

Even small cracks left alone will grow to bigger issues. The sooner you address cracks in your walls or flooring, the easier foundation problems can be solved.

LEANING OR BOWING WALLS

Leaning or bowing walls means your home receives too much outside pressure. This pressure signifies your foundation is settling and possibly sinking.
