For most homeowners, the foundation is just the ground beneath their feet. However, it also provides support to all of the walls and ceiling, and any problems could make everything crumble like a house of cards. Understandably, homeowners have plenty of questions when it comes to spotting major damage and planning for the costs of foundation repair. To that end, we here at Structured Foundation Repairs have compiled this FAQ to answer some of the most common questions:
How Do I Spot Major Damage?
Signs of foundation damage can be as minor as a jammed door or window, or as obvious as large cracks in the ground or walls. Inadequate drainage or water leaks are among some of the most common causes for foundation damage. Evaluations from Structured Foundation Repairs are always free, so don’t hesitate to set up an appointment if you suspect your foundation may be in trouble.
How Much Will It Cost?
The cost of a foundation repair project depends on the scope and severity of the damage. Most of our jobs can be completed within 1 to 2 days and historically cost from $5,000 to $7,000. The cost of foundation repair is often less than what homeowners expect, especially compared to the tens of thousands of dollars it would take to rebuild an entirely new foundation.
Will It Affect the Value of My Home?
Foundation repairs from a licensed and certified specialist in accordance with industry standards will have to be disclosed when you are ready to sell the home. However, we do offer a lifetime transferable warranty to ensure that you receive the best value for your home.
