Fixing the Issue

Many tools are available to slow, fix, or stop a settlement, foundation, or structural problem. Each specific problem calls for its own specific solution. A large tree causing cracks in the foundation calls for tree work. Gutters that direct water next to the foundation, thus saturating the ground, call for gutter work. Unfortunately, in some cases even high-quality contractors disagree on the proper solution. If multiple high-quality contractors disagree, consider seeking the advice of a competent engineer.
