Do you have cracked walls? Doors that won’t close? Bulging floors? Any of these can be signs of foundation problems. Foundation settlement can lead to major structural problems within your home. Luckily there are ways to repair a concrete foundation without having to tear it out and start from scratch.

Key Takeaways:

  • Finding your dream home may involve a bit of compromise and a fair few plans for major renovations.
  • Unfortunately, some signs that point to necessary foundation repair can be easily covered up for the short term.
  • Every house settles a little and probably won’t have completely level floors. But sometimes there is a noticeable slope in a room.

“Replacing the windows entirely puts a band-aid on the problem and may hide yet another potential sign of a foundation problem.”
