While some initial settling is normal and typically manifests as minor cosmetic changes, distinguishing between typical and potentially harmful settling is crucial for maintaining your home’s integrity and value.

Key Signs of Concerning Home Settling

  • Cracks in the Foundation: Horizontal or large cracks can be serious warnings of structural stress.
  • Cracks in Bricks or Siding: Stairstepping cracks or gaps also demonstrate movement.
  • Persistent Door and Window Issues: Difficulty opening or closing these can indicate shifting within the frame structure.
  • Noticeable Floor Unevenness: Significant sloping or changes in floor levelness can point to underlying foundation problems.
