How do I know if there are problems?

There are obvious signs of foundation distress; cracks in the brick and/or the foundation, cracks in concrete, trim separation around doors and windows, interior cracks in the sheetrock walls and ceilings and doors that are difficult or impossible to close.   Other signs can be sloping floors, wrinkles in vinyl or cracks in ceramic tile.

At Foundation Inspectors, we evaluate the structure by performing a Relative Elevation Survey and documenting interior and exterior observations.  This combination approach provides the information to make a decision.  We also make recommendations and will provide repair recommendations if appropriate.  It may be that some basic improvements in the drainage is all you  need to do to rectify the situation.  There is also the possibility that repairs, when compared to the age and value of the home, are not appropriate or may be too risky and damage the structure.    Regardless, Foundation Inspectors will give you the good news and not so good news.
