Foundation Cracking: Minor

When to Worry About Cracks in Your Foundation

Foundation cracking is normal in most homes. Sometimes the cracking is due to concrete shrinkage but sometimes it’s due to settling of the home or the lot itself. The cracks in this foundation would be considered minor and something to monitor over time. If this crack widens, then we would recommend contacting a structural engineer to evaluate the cause and propose suggestions for repair. If you’re concerned about the condition of your foundation, contact us to schedule a foundation inspection.

Ridge shingles are the first layer of defense against moisture intrusion. In this example, you can see that roof shingles are missing which can lead to moisture intrusion into the attic and eventually the home. Professional roof inspections can help locate issues such as these and help prevent costly damage to the home’s interior.
