Crack in Bricks
Here you can see the separation of the bricks which proves that their foundation is settling and creating a problem for the homeowners. Settlement is the movement your home experiences when the soil below can no longer support its weight. Your home is resting on many different layers of soil. And the constant cycle of wet and dry periods is a major factor in settlement.
At first, a foundation problem may seem like an extreme problem. However, if you identify the damage before it becomes too advanced, most foundation issues have simple, permanent solutions.
