Foundation problems must be disclosed when selling a home, and can reduce the value of a home by 20-30%.
To preserve the value of the home, fixing any issues with the foundation right away is usually the most logical option for homeowners.
Foundation problems are many times caused by changes in the moisture content of the soil around your home. During extended periods of dry weather, the soil around and under your home can shrink, causing your home to shift downwards.
When this foundation problem occurs, you may begin to notice foundation cracks throughout your home that indicate foundation settlement. During extremely wet periods, the soil under your home can soften or even collapse which can also cause your home to sink, settle, and crack.
Another foundation problem caused by wet soil conditions is bowing walls. If your home has a basement or crawlspace you may notice foundation cracks in the walls, which can be caused when hydrostatic pressure is put on the wall after a heavy rain.
When hydrostatic pressure puts pressure on your foundation wall, it can cause it to move inward. If your basement walls begin to fail, you will notice foundation cracks as the wall starts to bow, buckle, tip along the top, or slide inwards along the bottom.
If you've noticed foundation cracks or other symptoms of foundation problems such as drywall cracks, doors and windows that don't open and close properly, sloping floors or exterior foundation cracks, you are probably dealing with a foundation problem that is caused by changing soil conditions around or under your home.
