Signs of a Sinking Foundation
All signs of sinking foundation can be traced back to soil movement. All homes have a number of different soil layers that are underneath the home, the lower layers are typically have more soil bearing capacity. Foundation sinking begins to occur when the structure is built on a layer of soil that cannot support the weight of the home. There are a few signs to look out for if sinking foundation is occuring.
Tilting chimneys that are showing signs of separation from the home can be one of the most noticeable signs of a foundation settlement. The extreme weight of the chimney can make your home at even more risk for sinking foundation.
Damaged Doors and Windows
An opening in any wall is a sign of a weak point, so often times foundation settlement can show up near door and window openings. Cracks can extend from the corners above the doors and windows of your home and may separate from the framing or the exterior of the house. Other signs may include sticking, jamming doors and windows as well as locks that stop working unexpectedly.
A reliable indicator that you may have some foundation sinking are any cracks in the drywall throughout the house. You will typically notice cracks located in the corners of doors and windows and along the drywall seams.
