NJ home inspectors examine foundations when conducting home inspections. The foundation of a home shows a lot about the health of a home. Homes settle over time but real issues in a foundation can be cause a great deal of damage. Knowing the difference between the two is important. The condition of a foundation is an important element of a New Jersey home inspection.
Visible cracks in the foundation are one thing, a possible sign of more but perhaps just related to settling. Sticking windows and doors and cracks in walls can mean you have a real foundation issue. Likewise, ground sloping toward your house can mean excessive moisture draining into your foundation which can affect the the integrity of the foundation and create leaking and moisture build-up in basements and crawl spaces.
