Foundation repair costs
While many foundation problems are similar, each one demands a customized solution to provide the best value and performance. At L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc., we take pride in making foundation repair costs clear and easy to understand.
To help you decide if our foundation repair solution is right for you, we provide free foundation repair inspections. Each inspection includes:
- An on-site inspection
- Professional assessment of your foundation issue
- Detailed cost quote for your home.
We will inspect alongside you so your priorities are reflected in the cost of the project. We have multiple options for fixing a foundation problem. Your inspection could reflect the priority of fixing the foundation problem at hand. Or fixing the problem and protecting the rest of the house.
We will inspect and quote your project depending on what is most valuable to you.
Is foundation repair a necessary expense?
Many homeowners wonder if foundation repair is a necessary expense. At L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc., we say YES and strongly recommend fixing any foundation problems for the following reasons:
The problem will get worse
A foundation problem never gets better on its own. As it gets worse, the problem will cost more to fix.
Resale value of the home
Who wants to buy a house with a foundation problem? Nobody! Investing in foundation repair isn’t just for the foundation - but it helps your entire home. Keep your home’s value high by repairing all problems as they arise.
Appearance of your property
Foundation problems often cause ugly cracks not only in the foundation itself but also inside the home. Floors, walls, patios and more can all be impacted by whether or not you invest in foundation repair. Foundation repair can easily become wall repair, concrete repair and more, adding more expense to the project, if not remedied right away.
Door and window operation
As your foundation fails to hold the structure in place, your house will bend and twist. This will cause doors and windows to stick and jam, which may add time and expense.
Use of space in your home
Sometimes, you can lose usable space inside of you home because of foundation failure. That's not what you paid for when you bought your home! Don’t pay extra for storage, or lose out on the space you’re already paying to heat and cool, by neglecting to fix the foundation.
A safer home
It's unusual, but disasters like foundations collapsing, chunks of brick veneer falling off the house and other serious safety hazards do emerge. In these cases, the expenses can escalate quickly.
Keep pests away
Insects and animals can get into your home through cracks in the foundation, becoming unwanted and uninvited guests. Save on ongoing pest control services, along with many other expenses, by fixing the foundation and keeping critters out!
How the Supportworks network works
L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc. is proud to be a part of the Supportworks dealer network, which consists of nearly 120 of the most experienced structural repair contractors in North America. We receive top-of-the-line products and training to ensure that we are always providing cutting edge technology and quality service.
Supportworks has structural and geotechnical engineers on staff to provide industry-leading expertise whenever it's needed.
Supportworks engineers don’t only focus on product design and quality control; they also provide technical support to engineers, architects, building departments, and general contractors.
All of our representatives are trained on how to design a foundation repair system that will give you successful results without over engineering a system that costs more than it should.
Your representative will be basing the cost of your repair off a price sheet. You're protected from variable pricing, and you won't need to worry about negotiating the bottom line.
Why choose a Supportworks dealer?
Foundation repair solutions vary in cost depending on:
- The type and severity of the problem
- The tools used to fix the problem
- Materials and time required to complete the work
For example, the amount of excavation required to reach a damaged footing is one factor that can affect the cost of a foundation settlement repair. Another example of a cost factor is the depth that piers must be driven to reach competent strata when underpinning a settling foundation.
Cost advantages to choosing a Supportworks dealer
Not only are the Supportworks products warrantied and manufactured with the highest-quality materials, there are cost benefits to going with Supportworks:
Less disruptive repairs
Repairs undertaken by Supportworks dealers are much less disruptive and much more economical than total foundation replacement.
An honest bottom line
Supportworks dealers never start by pricing high only to offer a discount at the end that makes you feel like you're getting a great deal.
Although the cost of foundation repair will vary depending on the type of pier system and level of difficulty the job requires, you can rest assured that you will get a fair, competitive price in your written quote.
Choosing a Supportworks dealer to repair your foundation ensures that your foundation will get the most professional treatment with the best available technology and products. Should you need it, each of our products is backed by a full written warranty.
The Real Estate Disclosure Act
The Real Estate Seller Disclosure Act requires that foundation problems be disclosed to potential home buyers.
Realtors say they have to discount a home with structural defects 10 to 20% in order to go forward with the sale of the home.
People are very hesitant to buy a home with a structural defect, and if they do, they certainly don't pay full price for it.
Even if you negotiate a lower price with a home buyer, the bank may be hesitant to grant a mortgage on a house with a major structural problem.
What is your home worth in today's market?
Not fixing your foundation costs you much more money than fixing it. It's simply an investment that makes sense!
