You should have these cracks checked out by a professional to assess any further damage that could potentially occur.
Roof damage and leaks. Foundation problems will not happen over-night, so it can be extremely difficult to detect damage if you are not trained to do so. One way you know you may be at risk, is if your roof is in sudden and unexpected need of repair. Your foundation securely supports and is connected with every aspect of your home. When your foundation is moving, it is also causing your roof to move, which can lead to roof rafters and shingles separating. This can cause your roof to leak, which can lead to costly water damage to your property.
Separation around the exterior doors of your home. If your garage door is showing dislocation from its structure then there is a good chance it is a result of foundation damage. You should be aware of any cracked bricks, warped walls and any separation between the garage door and ground.
