What you should watch for

- Whether your foundation seems no longer level - if one or more sides of your home is noticeably sinking, or your windows or doors are getting harder to open and close, this could be related to settlement.
- Cracks in your:
- Basement floor - these are not critical, but should be resolved
- Hallways, living room, kitchen or other rooms - as these are signs of other more critical issues
- Basement walls - natural shrinking and curing process of concrete can be the source of this problem
- Foundation - these are frequently caused by hydrostatic pressures in the earth surrounding your home
Variables that can affect the expense involved
Even though a lot of structural problems seem similar, they all require a unique and customized course of action to get them correctly taken care of. For example, if an excessive amount of excavation work is required to reach a damaged area of a wall, this will elevate the labor involved to resolve the issue, which will raise the cost of the project.
