The sagging of a foundation…

A sinking or settling foundation can have one or more interrelated causes. The main causes are the drying of the soil, spreading of the roots from large plants, leaching of the soil, increased load on the structure of the building, excavation near the foundation and seismic movement.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is the best-known example of a structure that has been tilted in parts or in its entirety. However, measures have been taken in recent years to prevent the collapse. As a private person, you want to know your house has a straight and sound foundation. Especially a settling foundation is usually associated with cracks in the facade, but the most common signs of foundation issues are:

  • Cracks in the foundation walls
