As you can see, one of the signs of a settlement problem is when you can see some gap spaces between the baseboard and the floor.
Another big sign of a settlement is when you can see some concrete cracks on the floor.
Sometimes the cracks can even appear in the ceiling. It all depends on how the house got built and on many other variables as well. The problem is that soil is always changing and gets exposed to different weathers every day. On top of that, some rooms of the house might be heavier than others depending on how many walls and/or divisions the room has or just on the structural design.
Some cracks might go a little too far depending on the location and what is close to them, too. For example, in this image, the door is closed to the ceiling cracks. Therefore, the cracks got extended all the way to the door affecting the whole area, making the problem much worse than before. The problem with foundation problems is that if you do not attack the issue from the root, the problem will come out again in the future. That is why calling experts is always the best alternative.
