This blogpost is about a Foundation Inspection and Repair of sinking foundation
Not all foundation problems are easily noticeable. Some signs to be aware of that should prompt you to get a professional foundation inspection are:
- Cracked or bulging walls or cracked stairs – When you check your exterior and interior walls for cracks, hairline cracks are somewhat common. If you happen to notice larger cracks, that is a good sign there has been foundation movement.
- Floor Damage – When you check your floors, you’ll want to look for cracks that are uneven on each side. If you see this, a foundation inspection should be performed.
- Uneven doors or doors that no longer shut: When a foundation settles, cracks or shifts, you may have difficulty opening or closing doors because they no longer sit level or shut. This can be a sign that there is movement in your home’s frame.
- Stuck windows or window wells: When a foundation settles, cracks or shifts, windows may no longer shut.
