Identifying Common Foundation Problems:

1. Cracks: One of the most noticeable signs of foundation issues is the presence of cracks in the walls, floors, or ceilings. These cracks can vary in size and severity, indicating different types of foundation damage.

2. Uneven Floors: Uneven or sloping floors can indicate foundation settlement or movement, which can compromise the structural stability of a home.

3. Sticking Doors and Windows: Difficulty opening or closing doors and windows could be a result of foundation movement, causing misalignment in the door and window frames.

4. Sagging or Bowing Walls: Foundation problems can cause walls to sag or bow inward, especially in basements or crawl spaces, posing a risk of collapse if left untreated.

5. Water Intrusion: Excess moisture around the foundation or in the basement can lead to water intrusion, weakening the foundation and promoting mold growth.

Effects of Foundation Problems:

1. Affect on Property Value: Untreated foundation issues can sometimes affect the value of a property, making it difficult at times to sell or finance.

2. Structural Damage: Foundation problems can compromise the structural integrity of a home, posing safety risks to occupants.

3. Pest Infestation: Gaps and cracks in the foundation can provide entry points for pests such as termites and rodents, further exacerbating the problem.
