Settling Over time settling occurs and in most cases its a gradual sinking of the property.  Although settling is not something to worry about, its important to know how to tell when your house is settling so you know when to call for help.

Broken or Leaking Pipes One of the most common reasons for a foundation problem is plumbing leaks. Your home's pipes aren't just in the walls, but they also stretch down into the foundation. If a pipe cracks, any flowing water will enter the foundation area. Overtime, even a small plumbing leak creates an expensive foundation repair.
