Winter exposes your home to extreme weather, and sometimes the effects of it can reach your foundation. Some signs of foundation damage include a constantly jammed door, cracked doorways, windows that stick or won’t close completely, or even bowed or rotating walls. Also, if you notice cracks in vinyl or ceramic tiles that are installed over a concrete floor, these may indicate a problem with your foundation.
Foundations are often out of sight, so it’s easy to miss signs of problems or sometimes to completely forget about them. In this article, Stratum Structural Systems, one of the area’s top basement waterproofing and foundation repair contractors, emphasizes the importance of foundation inspections. We also offer some tips on when you should call a professional to check your home’s foundation.
