Foundation Repair RI: 3 More Signs of Foundation Damage

foundation repair ri

In our previous post, we covered some of the most common signs that your home needs foundation repair. But there are more things to look out for than we could fit in a single blog article, so we’re continuing our list here. It’s essential to address foundation repair in RI as soon as you realize the need for it to keep your home and family safe. By being proactive, you can make repairs and resolve issues before they become major problems.


Here are three more signs to keep an eye out for that let you know if you need foundation repair in RI.


Bowing or Leaning Walls

Your walls are supposed to stand straight up and down. If they start to bow in or out, that’s a sign the foundation underneath is compromised, causing the walls to shift. Because this shift will happen gradually over time, you may not notice it right away. However, you will likely notice that your crown molding or trim has separated from the wall.


Puddles or Standing Water

Water pooling around your foundation is less a sign that you have a foundation problem and more that you are about to have one. Standing water near your foundation indicates a drainage problem. If your foundation absorbs water, that can lead to water damage and cracking, especially when it gets cold enough for the water to freeze. The best way to fix this problem is to redo your drainage to direct water away from the foundation.


Sagging Roof or Porch

Stand away from your house and look at the roof line. Does it look like it’s sagging? That could indicate a structural issue with your roof, but it could also be your foundation. The foundation affects everything standing on it, including the roof. You’ll see the effects of foundation problems from the ground up, so a sagging porch or stoop is also something to watch out for.
