Five Reasons Why You Should Inspect Your Concrete Building Foundation - If you live in a house with a concrete building foundation, you better read this article. I'm going to give you five reasons why you should inspect your concrete building foundation. Whether you listen and follow it is going to be completely up to you.

Checking the Building for Square - The most important thing when building a home is the ability to keep everything as square, plumb and level as possible. Starting with the foundation, if the foundation is not square or level, the rest of the house is going to be out of alignment.

What does it look like and what can we do about it?
