1. The problem will get worse

A foundation problem never gets better or corrected on its own—only worse over time. As it does, it is going to cost more to fix.

2. Resale Value

Buyers are competitive and don’t want to purchase a home with a structural foundation problem.

3. Appearance

Both exterior and interior foundation problems can often be an eyesore.

4. Door and window operation

As your foundation beings to fail to hold the house where it should be, your house sinks, settles, and moves—this causes doors and windows to stick and jam.

Foundation cracks allow water in, or at the very least moisture (water vapor), which can damage your living space in a variety of ways.
