Unfortunately and more often than not, a house will settle unevenly overtime. Seasonal changes in moisture levels and temperatures directly relate to soil expansion and contraction and are the main sources of foundation damage. Too much water causes soil to expand and swell. Alternatively, the soil will shrink if there is not enough water. Both scenarios directly affect the dirt under a home’s foundation, causing it to move and crack as it settles.

To determine if your home’s foundation is damaged and in need of repair, inspect both the interior and exterior on a regular basis.

Here are some things to look for.

Signs of interior foundation damage

  • Wall cracks
  • Slanting or sloping floors
  • Cracked floors and tiles
  • Misaligned windows and doors
  • Gaps around moldings

Indications of exterior foundation damage

  • Foundation Cracks
  • Brick cracks
  • Gaps around windows and doors
  • Loose trim that is pulling away from the home

In your basement, look for:

  • Bowing and/or bulging walls
  • Water damage and leaks
  • Cracks in the walls or on the floor

If you have a crawlspace, check for:

  • Floors that are sloping
  • Doors that are stuck or doors that won’t close
  • Shifting piles in the crawl space
