Foundation Challenges

Jacob Evan

October 5, 2020

It’s called the “foundation” because your property’s stability and structural integrity relies on it. So, it’s no surprise that the mention of foundation problems bears an intimidating weight when discussing any issues with a building. However, there are a few helpful points to consider when choosing a company for foundation repairs.

Most foundation issues do not completely stem from the foundation itself but are caused by the soil underneath. Landscaping and drainage need to be carefully evaluated to balance the moisture levels entering the soil, otherwise absorbent soil can expand or contract, potentially causing structural damage. The foundation repair provider you choose should have engineers that are knowledgeable in geology, and have a staff of educated, well-equipped team members to accurately evaluate your foundation and its surrounding environment.

Another important quality to look for is a range of expertise. Many foundation repair companies specialize in one particular type of repairs. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for foundation issues, and you will want the company evaluating your property’s foundation to be able to identify the most effective solution for your particular problem and be able to reliably perform that repair. The best way to ensure this is to find a company that can offer a variety of foundation repair methods.

Lastly, look for a foundation repair provider that guarantees their work. No one wants to invest in a foundation repair only to be dragged back by the same problem in the years following. Choose a company that does it right the first time and has the warranties to back up their work.

I Get What You’re Saying

You never know who’s going to walk through the front door when you work in a leasing office. In this case, a couple looking for a new place to call home, had a slight difference of opinion on which floor plan they’d need for their growing family. I love how the leasing director helped take some of the tension out of what could have otherwise been a stressful situation.
