It will never go away on its own
The damage caused in the foundation will only increase with time. If you think that it will get repaired on its own, then then you are wrong. If you want to protect your structure from any further damage you should get it repaired as soon as possible.
It will increase with time
The small foundation damage of today will turn into a huge problem with time. The small damage might not worry you at this point of time but it will create a lot of problems for you in the future if not repaired soon.
It will cost you more after some time
The longer you wait the more expensive your repair work will become because of the increased damage. If you get the damage repaired soon it would cost you less but as the damage increases with time it would become more expensive for you to get it repaired.
A decline in property value
The value of your property will go down as the damage increases. It would be better if you get it repaired before the market value of your property diminishes because of the damage.
Difficulty in finding a new owner
No one will buy a damaged property. If you plan to sell your property in future then anyways you have to get it repaired, so it’s better to get kit repaired now to save you from the additional cost.
Your property Can Become Infested
A lesser-known side-effect of foundation damage is that cracks in your slab foundation will allow insects to enter your home. If you don’t get the foundation repaired soon you can notice an increase in the number of insects/spiders in your home.
