Is it safe to live in a house with foundation problems?

A home with foundation problems can be dangerous for both your health and your finances. Foundation damage will only get worse with time, which means that the longer you put it off, the more expensive it will be to repair. When the damage is caught early enough, foundation problems may cause no immediate threat to your livelihood. Small foundation cracks can be quick and easy to repair. Foundation problems that have been neglected over many years, however, can cause major structural damage to the home. For example, a settling foundation can cause severe damage and can eventually lead to other issues with your foundation walls and floor.
