Conditions that cause foundation damage aren't usually obvious. It's a common mistake to treat the symptom such as filling in a cracked slab, instead of addressing the soil or construction details that caused the damage.

Quick fixes are short-lived and actually worsen the problem. If you see the following problems we recommend you call (855) 650-2211 today to schedule a free, no obligation foundation inspection.

Do's
  • Schedule a foundation inspection if you see a possible problem with your foundation.
  • Have your inspection performed by a foundation repair specialist.

  • Prepare for an inspection by clearing the damaged area to provide full access for the inspector.
Don’t
  • Ignore a foundation problem until it goes away. It won’t.
