Your options are often defined by your circumstances. For instance, if you are in the process of selling your home or office, chances are you will have to address any and all issues. If you are buying a house or commercial property, have it assessed prior to closing. If your structure is younger than 5 years old and you suspect a problem, consult a licensed structural engineer. Lastly, if you do not have immediate plans to sell, you have several options. We suggest obtaining an assessment to determine if in fact there is a problem or to ensure the problem is not causing irreparable or costly damage. Now, you may be in a position to chose to wait and monitor the foundation, correct any negative drainage, or repair the structure with underpinning.
