The recommended first step when you notice any of these problems is to have Roggio Foundation Repair inspect your home and foundation. Obtaining a professional opinion on the causes, costs and available solutions is a necessary step in securing your foundation walls.
Foundation problems can get very serious if they are not addressed. When your home experiences foundation settlement, bowing walls, cracks in the walls or floors and ceilings, the symptoms may be barely noticeable at first.... Perhaps a small crack appears in your foundation walls, drywall, or window jams.
Soon, the problems from foundation damage can worsen significantly, and quickly. Chimneys can begin to tilt, floors can crack, sag and become uneven, and wall cracks can begin to grow in size. If the foundation problem is ignored, the foundation will eventually erode to the point of partial or complete failure. And once the foundation cracks get large enough, not only will leaking be an issue, but safety becomes a serious issue too.
Homes with a failing foundation can lead to decreased home value, dangerous situations, and more. It is more cost effective to fix your damaged foundation before you sell.
