The Problem

Think you may have a problem with your foundation? Look for any significant signs of the following:

  • Visible foundation cracks
  • Cracks in concrete, brick, or drywall
  • Floors that appear to slope
  • Gaps in unintended areas, such as chimney
  • Bowing walls in basement areas
  • Visible water damage
  • Doors or windows that stick or don’t open properly

All foundations settle. Settlement happens nearly everywhere in North America, to every home, in varying degrees.

A number of factors are contributors including soil shifting, weather elements, and age of structure, among others. King Waterproofing and Foundation Solutions provides expertise and complete service in the areas of foundation assessment and repair.
