3 Questions You Should Ask Your Foundation Repair Company

If you need a repair on your home’s foundation, you want to ensure you have the best contractor for the job. The foundation of your home is one of the most important elements in protecting your investment, so you want to ensure that is repaired using the highest quality materials and most advanced techniques. Here are three questions to ask any foundation repair company you are considering for work on your home’s foundation.

  1. How many years has your company been repairing foundations? A company may have been in business for 20+ years and repair foundations, but have they been doing those types of repairs for twenty years? You want a company that has decades of experience repairing foundations, with an excellent reputation in the community.
  2. What type of warranty do you offer? Does the company stand behind their work? If they do, they will offer a lifetime warranty that is transferrable. It shouldn’t matter whether you own the home or sell it to someone else; the work should be warrantied and covered, regardless of who owns the house in the future, which will protect the value you have in your home.
  3. Do you have references? Most contractors will have references, but look for a foundation company that has a wide variety of references, including homeowners, building contractors, architects and realtors. Make sure to take the time to talk with a few of these references, not just read a pre-written testimonial.

Doing a little research and asking a few questions can make a big difference in the quality of foundation repair you receive. While price is important, a quality foundation repair contractor can offer you both good value and quality with their service.
