10 Early Warning Signs


One of the most common questions the team at Alpha Foundations receives is how do I know if I have a foundation issue. While the only way to know for sure is to have one of our design techs look at the area of concern, there are Early Warning Signs you can look for.

If you identify the damage before it becomes too advanced, most foundation problems have simple, permanent solutions-many of which can be completed within a day at an affordable price. Keep in mind, foundation problems will NOT get better with time! Included in this post you will find 10 early warning signs of foundation settlement.
