So you are in the market to buy a home, and you are wondering what are the signs you should be looking for that might indicate that there is a problem with the foundation of the home.

Wall Crack

Sloping Floor

Floor Crack

Here is a list of foundation problem signs to look for while you are out previewing homes:

  • Wall cracks
  • Cracks in the flooring
  • Cracks in the ceiling
  • Doors and windows that will not open and close correctly
  • Sloping floors
  • Cracks in the exterior stucco and exterior bricks
  • Poor drainage and ponding water
  • Signs of damage in drywall and ceiling

Usually when buying a home the buyer will have the home inspected by a professional home inspector. If there are signs that the home you are looking to purchase may have problems with the foundation, the home inspector will note the problems and will usually advise you, the buyer, that the foundation of the home should be inspected further.

That is when you should call the professionals at Tennyson Foundation Repair.
