There are many ways to tell if a foundation is failing. One of the most obvious to spot, however, is if a home is sinking. This problem typically occurs when the soil around the home dries out and contracts, making the home sink down with it.
In this video, you will hear the story of how a California couple’s home settled nearly ten feet into the ground. The indications that the foundation was failing started appearing a few weeks before the house sank, when the walls and floors started cracking. In a short period of time, the house went from being a beautiful property to a condemned one.
