Signs of Foundation Problems
How do you know if your home’s foundation needs repair? The appearance of cracks in your foundation is the #1 indicator that your foundation is becoming compromised. Maintaining the foundation of your home is vital. In the event of a flood, having your home’s foundation intact could leave your home completely unaffected. These are the most common signs your foundation needs repair:
- Cracks on the ceiling or interior and exterior walls of your home
- Water damage and soil shifting
- Doors jamming or failing to latch
- Windows that are difficult to open and close completely
- Spacing between crown molding and the ceiling
- Spacing between caulking on windows and doors
There are several factors in identifying when your foundation needs repair. Normal settlement cracks are common but should be fixed to prevent further cracks and water in the home. These crack issues should be monitored to ensure they do not return and to ensure that movement and settlement issues have been properly addressed.
Settling and shifting of foundations can often be caused by building a structure on soil that is expanding or contracting due to freezing cycles or poor drainage, non-compacted fill soils, or from poor landscaping around the home’s foundation.
