What are the signs of a bad foundation?
Being familiar with the signs of foundation damage can help you catch potential problems early when they’re easiest and least expensive to repair. Unfortunately, spotting a bad foundation isn’t always as easy as finding large foundation cracks sprawling across your basement walls. There are a variety of ways your home lets you know that it is settling and suffering from problems that require foundation repair. It’s a good idea to periodically inspect your home for any of these signs of foundation damage so you can catch them early and get them fixed before the costs start to mount.

Causes of foundation problems
To find a permanent foundation repair solution, it’s essential to find the cause of your home’s foundation problems. This helps ensure that the root problem is addressed and won’t be repeated.
While foundation can be caused by a number of situations, the main cause of foundation problems is shifting soils. Most soil in the US is expansive, meaning it holds a great deal of water which makes it expand and then, when dry, the soil shrinks again. This wreaks havoc on your foundation walls. After a heavy rain, if you lack adequate drainage, there are thousands upon thousands of pounds of hydrostatic pressure pressing against your foundation walls from the saturated soils. What’s more, once the soil dries out and shrinks, it will pull away from your foundation walls, leading them to carry more of the weight of your house. Whether you’re in Edinboro or Erie, if there’s a crack in your basement wall, things will only get worse.
