Concrete floor slab settlement is normal, but can cause major problems and result in costly damage to your home. The warning signs of slab foundation problems inside could include wall cracks, especially where walls meet ceiling, door or window jams, or cracks in tile over concrete floors. Warning signs of foundation settlement problems outside include bulging or curved foundations, cracked foundations or moisture in the crawl space. There are many slab foundation repair methods, but all are generally easy to lift slab back into desired position and repair the concrete foundation. Concrete floor slab problems affect far more than we believe, especially if some of those problems are ones we don’t see. They are also something we often don’t think about.
