Foundation Maintenance Checklist

  • Gaps in between foundation and soil

  • Check moisture level; often times foundation issues come from to much moisture or to little

  • Check drainage; make sure that your gutters are draining at least 5-10 feet away

  • Check plants and trees to make sure no roots are growing into the foundation

  • Check the plumbing. Leaks can cause massive problems in foundations and need to be looked at ASAP

  • Water during the dry season! This will help with nearly all problems

  • Inspect home for damage or cracks

  • Insure the house is sitting on the proper slope

  • Install root barrier if trees become to much

  • Check for stuck or hard to open doors around the house
