• Cause of Foundation Movement

•  Pre-purchase Inspections

• Affects of Subgrade Plumbing Leaks/Insurance Claim Second Opinions

• Other Residential Structural Inspections, including wind/storm.

Here are six representative indicators of foundation movement:
(1) a typical crack at the corner of a window
(2) more severe cracks in the wall and ceiling above a door with a frame that is out of alignment
(3) a random crack through ceramic floor tiles
(4) a crack in a brick veneer
(5) a separation between wall panels below a gypsum board wall crack
(6) a crack in a front porch slab.


 All of these are typical indications of foundation movement.  The question that I answer for the homeowner is what specifically caused their foundation to shift, how to correct for that movement and how to reduce future movement.
