Foundation Repair Warning Signs:

Buffalo's Best Roofing recommends that all new homeowners waterproof their basement. Water damage is extremely common and, if left unchecked, can cause major problems for you and your household. Unsurprisingly, an insufficient drainage system is often to blame for substantial foundation repairs. In addition, the soil underneath your home or an improperly laid foundation on a slope may also be to blame. With that in mind, here are a few things to watch out for in regard to foundation repair:

  • Cracks in the walls or floors — typically in the basement
  • Doors and windows sticking or not opening
