After their home is built, most homeowners never inspect the foundation supporting their home. The fact is that most homeowners don’t even know what to look for — even if they take the time to inspect their foundation. Fortunately for homeowners, homes often provide clues in the living space above that problems may be lurking in the foundation below.
Sticking windows and doors, spongy floors, cracks or gaps in ceilings and walls, as well as cracks in the brick walls outside your home are all signs of potential foundation problems below. When the foundation begins to sink or the supports under a home begin to settle or rot, the home moves, knocking it out of level and plumb, often creating signs in the living space above and in the walls outside of a home. (Foundation problems are often even more pronounced, such as bowing or cracked foundation walls that can actually collapse over time.)
