Warning Signs for Foundation Failure:
- Cracks in Stucco - If you see cracks that resemble a staircase on your stucco, it can indicate serious foundation damage.
- Cracks in Bricks - Many buildings use brick for their foundation and walls. If you see cracks forming, it can be an indication of foundation problems. While these cracks vary in size, they're often bigger at the top and thinner near the bottom.
- Gaps in Door Frames / Windows - Is it difficult for you to close your doors or windows? This can occur when there are large openings caused by foundation failure.
- Cracks in the Floor - Foundation affected by settlement will create cracks in the flooring. This is not normal and should be checked by a professional.
- A Leaning Chimney - If your chimney is leaning towards the property, it can indicate a problem with the internal structure of your home or business. If it's leaning away, it can be a foundational issue.
