Are you worried about your home’s foundation wearing down?

Unfortunately, a sinking or settling foundation is one of the biggest problems homeowners can experience — and it’s one that you DEFINITELY don’t want to ignore.

Just check out what Peak Structural Inc. has to say about it…

“One of the biggest dangers of neglecting a building’s foundation is structural damage. A sinking foundation can lead to massive damages in a home. This process is usually gradual and can culminate in major damages occurring over the years. When a foundation has become weakened, it produces a chain of events that can lead to catastrophic and expensive damages.”

In fact, here are some signs that a home’s foundation damage is starting to take a toll…

Cracks/Fractures — Cracks or fractures in the walls or floors are a common sign of structural problems in the home.

Appearance Of Settling Or Sinking — If the home’s walls and/or floors look like they’re sinking, that’s a sign that the foundation is weakening.

Foundation Upheaval — Conversely, if a foundation is bulging upward, that’s also a sign of structural weakening caused by moisture or the soil underneath expanding and contracting.

Doors That Don’t Work — One of the first signs of structural damage is doors that don’t open or close properly.

Gaps in Windows or Doors — Gaps around the windows or doors is one more sign that the foundation may be sinking.
