What are the Signs of Foundation Problems?

I think we have all seen the commercials on T.V. about homes that have experienced foundation distress. Cracks in the sheetrock or brick, doors or windows that stick, cracks in tile or concrete; these are all signs of foundation movement.

Although your home may exhibit some or all these signs, your home could still be within normal industry tolerances for residential construction. The normal seasonal changes from times where our area have seen very little rain to times that is seems like it hasn’t stopped raining for days or these gully washers have caused some localized flooding around our home will cause the perimeter of our homes to move up or down as the moisture content of our very expansive soils increases and decreases.
