Knowing the early warning signs

Knowing the early warning signs of foundation troubles can head off problems that ultimately could cost tens of thousands of dollars to fix. The sooner you identify potential problems, the easier and less expensive  it is to fix. 

4 Basic Indoor Warning Signs
A door begins to jam or fails to latch.
Cracks appear in walls, especially over doorways, windows, or where walls meet ceilings.
Cracks open in vinyl or ceramic tile over a concrete floor.
Windows that used to open and close easily suddenly begin to stick or won’t close completely.

Check the Outside
Moving outside, check to see if your foundation is straight by sighting down the length of your foundation wall from each corner. The walls should be basically straight, both up and down and from side to side. Check for leaning walls with a level.
