Foundation issues are not to be taken lightly. They can cause a lot of damage to your home and the worse it gets the more it will cost you long term. It is a much better practice to make minor foundation repairs early rather than play the waiting game, only having to make larger, more complicated repairs later on.
Water pressure forced against the foundation walls is the most common reason for bowing. And when it gets cold, the ground water freezes and makes this problem much worse. Heavy soil pressure, poor construction, shrinkage of concrete, old foundations, and degradation over time are other typical causes of foundation troubles.
You can tell if you need your foundation repaired by checking one or more of these issues:
Cracks in your walls, inside, outside, or both
Sinking foundation or uneven floors
Bowed or buckling walls
Doors and windows getting stuck or jammed
Any of these signs could mean your home needs to be repair or at least inspected or the damages could get even worse.
