For your structure to be stable, it needs a solid foundation. However, since the foundation is out of sight, it tends to be out of mind too. As a result, foundation problems tend to remain undetected, and this eventually affects the structural integrity of your building. A misconception some people have is that foundational issues spring up spontaneously. In truth, these problems occur cumulatively, and when they finally manifest in your structure, your home will likely require intensive foundation repairs.
