All home foundations move over time. This movement should be factored into the design of the house when it is originally constructed. However, foundations often move in a way that the original designers didn’t predict. This unexpected movement could have serious consequences for your home.

Here are some signs that your foundation could be damaged:

  • Cracks appear in the foundation or concrete slabs.
  • Your basement has leaks or rotting walls.
  • Basement walls are bowing or bulging on the inside or outside.
  • Your interior walls or ceilings have cracks in the drywall.
  • Your chimney is cracked or leaning.
  • Your windows or doors are sticking and won’t close properly.

Left untreated, foundation issues can get worse, resulting in major structural problems for all elements of your home.
