Signs You Need a Foundation Repair

Make Sure You Are Stepping on Solid Ground

From time to time, you need to check the stability and state of your foundation, especially if your area has suffered from earthquakes or even flooding. There are many dangers to not having a foundation repair done on time. You should watch out for these common signs that tell you your foundation has been compromised and you should get it checked and repaired right away to avoid accidents:

Visible Cracks

This is probably something you thought is common when it comes to asphalt or sidewalks. Of course, if the area is prone to be driven on by heavy load trucks, chances are the cracks are just caused by the weight. But if the area does not get any car or vehicle action, this could be a sign that the foundation is weak and should be addressed right away.


You will not realize this unless the sinking is already pretty obvious. If the ground you are stepping on suddenly goes down or slopes down despite not being designed that way, this is a sign to call an expert right away. Do not wait until the foundation sinks even lower and causes damage on your floors.

Saggy Floors or Tiles

If you notice that your floors are sagging, bending, or warping, this could be a sign that there is something wrong with your foundation. You should get it checked and repaired right away instead of waiting for your floors to get more damaged.
