STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Earlier in the week, the Staten Island Board of Realtors (SIBOR) taught you how to read cracks in your foundation. Did you know that there are also indoor warning signs that your foundation may need attention?
Houses settle over time, and a little unevenness isn’t cause for panic. At the same time, according to House Logic, you’ll want to be alert to these warning signs that more dramatic changes are taking place:
1. A door begins to jam or fails to latch.
2. Cracks appear in walls, especially over doorways, windows, or where walls meet ceilings.
3. Cracks open in vinyl or ceramic tile over a concrete floor.
4. Windows that used to open and close easily suddenly begin to stick or won’t close completely.
