Common Signs

Here in Southern California, the most common signs of settling foundations are:

  • Sticking Windows: This is a good indication that your foundation has settled as the window is no longer square inside its frame.
  • Sticking Doors:  This typically means the door is no longer square inside its frame, indicating settlement issues.
  • Cracks Coming From Door and Window Frames: If you see crack coming from the corners of windows and door frames inside your home, these could very well mean that your homes foundation is settling.
  • Stair-step cracking: This type of cracking is commonly seen on the outside of the home in the stucco or even in retaining walls.
  • Separation or pulling away of chimneys or fireplaces: If a fireplace or chimney is pulling away from the home, this is very much an indication that the home is facing settlement issues.
