Avoid Structure Damage by Repairing a Sinking Foundation
As described in the list above, foundation issues like uneven settlement, can cause serious damage to your house structure, for example bowed walls may collapse, minor cracks allow water and Radon gas entry (Radon is a colorless, odorless, short-lived radioactive gas that can seep into homes and result in lung cancer risk. Radon and its decay products emit cancer-causing alpha, beta, and gamma particles), larger cracks are even more serious because they can allow larger quantity of water and Radon entry, severe or active cracks can cause foundation failure and constitute unsafe conditions. A sinking foundation can cause a major damage to the house structure.
