Problem

Unstable house structure

Other Names:
Uneven settling of building foundations
Unstable house foundations
Nature:
The condition of uneven settling of building foundations produces strains in the structure; and the additional forces that accompany these strains can disrupt structural stability or interfere with normal use of the building. Settling usually begins immediately after construction is started, continues while the building is being erected and the bearing load is increasing, and continues for quite a while after the building is finished.
