As the father of an autistic child, I have been faced with more than a few necessary home modifications projects. Unfortunately, with the high cost of raising a special needs child and my wife's decision to stay home and raise our son, there simply was no room in our budget to hire a contractor to complete these projects for us. Each weekend for nearly a year, I would pick a project to work on. This past month, I finally finished every project on my list. After learning more than I thought I would ever know about home construction and repair, I have a new found appreciation for the skills of general and specialty contractors. That is why I decided to start this blog to pay tribute to the job these contractors do, and help to empower more homeowners to take on the role of a contractor in their home.
Your home's concrete slab is the foundational structure of your home. Without it, your home would fall apart over time. If you even just slightly suspect that there is foundation damage, you need to evaluate your home immediately. However, you must know how to do this the right way or it will be a waste of time and will cost more in repairs in the future.

What to Look for in the Interior
All of the aforementioned things are items that may point to foundation failure. By regularly evaluating your home for these things, you can cut the foundation repair expenses while also ensuring your home is a safe and secure place for you and your family.Share
