Interior Wall Cracks
Do the inside walls of your home show cracks in the drywall, block, or concrete? Wall cracks are one of the major signs of foundation problems.
Do you see large gaps between your floors and baseboard on one wall but not the other? This is a sign your floors are sagging and need repair.
Water can enter the basement through cracks in the foundation walls. Painting walls is a temporary solution but can also create a mold problem and is not recommended.
Flooded Crawl Space
Water entering the crawl space can create mold and wood rot fungus that can destroy the sub-floor and joists. This can create sagging floors that may also bounce or creak.
Hard to Open Windows
When your foundation is in need of repair, windows will stick and even become impossible to open over time. Correcting the foundation may correct this problem.
Doors that Stick
Just like hard to open windows, warped doors are a sign of foundation problems like footers that need to be raised or bowing basement walls.
Cracks in Ceilings
Damaged ceilings are just as noticeable as wall cracks when your home's foundation is at risk.
Sagging Roof Line
The roof can be affected by foundation problems. This typically shows in a sagging roof line.
Stress on Plumbing, HVAC, Gas Lines
As the foundation shifts this can add stress to plumbing, electrical, HVAC and gas lines.
Gaps Between Chimney and House
When you notice the chimney pulling away from the home, it would be a great idea to have your foundation inspected.
Brick Leaning Away from Garage Door
Foundation problems can also show the brick around garage doors pulling away from the home.
Signs of a Sinking Home
Every year sinking foundations, cracked and buckled walls, and cracked and uneven floors affect millions of families. Homes located on unstable soils will settle when the foundation is subjected to flooding, improperly installed yard drainage, clogged footer drains, the dumping of roof water near the foundation, and poor drainage. A shifting foundation could result in dangerous structural damage and, potentially, a loss of your investment.
