What kind of qualifications should your contractor have?

A contractor that you’re hiring to do repair work for your home or business should be, at the basic level — fully ensured and licensed before you move forward with them. This not only protects you, but also protects the contractor and the building they will contracted to do work on.

Aside from their paperwork, take the time to do some research on contractors you’re interested in hiring to vet their reputation. Google, blank, and blank all offer customer reviews and images of previous work they’ve done to give you a good impression of what you’re signing up for. 

How much does it cost to do a foundation repair project?

Every job is different when it comes to foundation repair. To get an accurate idea of what it will cost for you, It’s best to get a contractor to come out and give you an estimate. But we’ll help give you a good idea what it could cost you.

According to Bobvila, the national average for foundation repair is $4,542, with the typical range falling within $2,012 to $7,074.

While this covers the bulk of foundation repair costs, some jobs could be as low as $500 or as high as $10,000 or more.

How long will it take to finish the job?

On average, the majority of foundation repairs take 1-4 days. Factors that could effect this timeline are:

  • Size of the foundation being repaired
  • Amount of piers needed to be installed
  • Depth of piers
  • Types of piers
  • Extent of damage to foundation
