Like many other people, you probably never imagine that something can go wrong with the foundation of your home. Of course, we all know how important the foundation is to the structural stability and safety of our properties, but because the foundation is not something that we can see, we fail to realize when there is an issue.

Well, unfortunately, problems can occur when it comes to your home’s foundation, and it is important that you are able to identify this so that you can take action and speak to an expert in foundation repair. Not everyone knows the key signs of foundation damage, and this means that serious issues often go unaddressed. In this article, we will look at some signs that may indicate it is time to speak to an expert about foundation repair at your home.

What You Should Look Out For

There are some key signs that can indicate there are issues with your foundation, and this is the time to speak to someone about coming out to assess the problem. Some of the signs to look out for are:

Cracked Floors and Walls

One of the signs that there could be an issue with your foundation is if you have cracks in the floors and walls of the property. This is a common sign of foundation issues, and if you notice these cracks appearing, it is well worth speaking to an expert about looking at your foundation. The cracks may appear vertically or horizontally, and while they may start out barely noticeable, they can quickly get worse.

Bulging and Bowing Walls, Movement in Fixtures

Movement in the walls of your home can also indicate that there are issues when it comes to your foundation. You may notice movement in the form of your walls bowing or bulging. In addition, if you have fixtures such as shelves and wall units, you may notice damage and movement with these. All of this can point to problems with the foundation of your home, and this means speaking with a professional who can come out and assess the issue.

Sinking and Uneven Floors

If you notice that areas of your floors are sinking or becoming uneven as well as cracking, this could be another sign that you have damage to your home’s foundation. When your floors become uneven, it can pose all sorts of problems such as increasing the risk of people tripping and injuring themselves. So, if you notice that the floor surface is becoming uneven, speak to a specialist in foundation repair.

Sticking Windows and Doors

Lastly, you should also do extra research on which expert you consult with to handle your home repairs.

One additional sign to look for is doors and windows around your home sticking when you try to close them or open them. This is yet another common sign that there may be foundation issues at your home.

If you notice any of the signs mentioned above, it is important to speak to a foundation expert as early as possible so that timely action can be taken.
