When a home is under construction, workers never forget to lay its foundation first. This part of the structure is an important portion of the overall building process, because it will benefit the homeowner for a very long time.  During the early stages of construction, the foundation acts as the starting point in which the workers can begin their build. After that, the foundation is the only thing that keeps the home from sinking into the ground.

The soil in the United States varies, and if your area is known to be filled with soft or unstable soil, it is imperative that you home’s foundation is constantly in good form. This, however, is easier said than done. Throughout the duration of its existence, your foundation will experience a couple of disasters such as floods and minor ground movements. Your foundation is not as strong as you think it is, and can only sustain a certain amount of stress before it completely breaks.

How to Spot Foundation Damage

It is not only expensive to repair a severely damaged foundation, but difficult as well. Thankfully, you can save yourself the trouble from spending too much on repairs, because your foundation will show a couple of signs of damage. It is wise not to ignore these problems. So, if you see these following signs of foundation damage, it is in your best interest to contact the professionals immediately.

  • Tilting Chimneys
  • Sinking Floors over a Crawl Space
  • Cracks along Windows, Door Openings, and Walls
  • Horizontal or Stair-Step Cracks Along Walls
