Your home, just like people, will tell you when it’s sick. However, sometimes its in a more subtle manner than your spouse demanding chicken noodle soup. It is important to pay attention to the signs that your home is giving you, they may indicate your home is having foundation issues. Here are a few signs that it may be time for an inspection.
Doors aren’t Shutting Smoothly
Have you noticed that your doors are “sticking” when you try to open and close them? Does your previously smooth closing door now seem like it takes an army to close? Do your windows no longer shut properly? If so, you may be having foundation issues.
Flooring is Uneven
It can be easy to overlook something like an uneven tile or a raise in your hardwood floors. However, these types of issues are usually not naturally occurring and are typically indicative of foundation issues.
Interior Wall Cracks
Drywall is flexible enough to endure small changes, however, when cracks begin to appear, there is usually an underlying issue. If you notice any cracks be sure to get your foundation inspected before a more unsightly and costly issue occurs.
