All foundations settle with time and may move slightly, but there will be problems if the foundation is uneven. Some exterior signs that you should watch out for to know if you are having foundation issues are wall rotation, cracked bricks that move in a "stair" pattern, and separation around the garage door, walls, or even windows.

Our methods to repair a damaged foundation are full-proof. There are many different methods to use depending on the type of problem and how serious it is. Most commonly for smaller issues, we use slabjacking. This is done by pumping a concrete grout through strategically located holes in the concrete slab. This allows for the grout to solidify and provide a bearing for the concrete slab.
We can also do piering where we drive steel posts through the unstable soil. Then we use hydraulic jacks to raise and stabilize the concrete slab. This method is usually used for more serious problems like an entire house or commercial building foundation shifting.
