I was recently talking to a neighbor of mine who was having some pretty extensive foundation repair done on his home. As he watched the crew from afar, I walked over and asked how he & family were doing. Part of me felt a little silly asking him about how he was doing, so I half-expected him to cut his eyes at me & rightfully so. When he turned to answer me, the amount of calm in his eyes took me by surprise. He said:
“You know, we’re doing really well right now, all things considered. I know it seems weird, but even with this crew working on my foundation, my family and I are more at ease that we’ve been in a long time. These guys really saved my home.”
Later, I was talking to another neighbor, and he noted that our area has been prone to having foundation issues, so my wife and I should count our blessings. I mentioned the whole “saved my home” comment from earlier, and this other neighbor said that couldn’t be understated. Turns out I’ve been in the dark about a lot of things regarding my home & the condition of my home’s foundation.
Anytime homeowners face a major repair, it can really be a tough ordeal for everyone involved. Moreover, the cost can be difficult to stomach on its own, let alone how much you hope that the repairs will be effective. It’s this point that sticks out for homeowners because we’ve all been the victim of a home repair that didn’t go well. Even if we got a recommendation from a co-worker or friend, home repairs can have shady sides.
One of the hardest parts of finding dependable foundation repair is trying to navigate the number of companies vying for your business. Aren’t they all essentially the same?
No. Foundation repair specialists set themselves apart from all other repair companies for many reasons, such as:
Details Are Top-Priority – Cursory details only scratch the surface for these specialists. They will take the time to inspect all areas of your home to see exactly where the problems are & what they need to do to get the job done right from the start.
Economical – Whether it’s trying to make repairs yourself or hiring a subpar company, trying to save money & be a little cheap may mean getting someone else in later to fix the first round of repairs before getting to the root cause of your foundation issues. That’s a lot of wasted time & money.
The Right Skills, Tools, and Experience – Foundation repair specialists have seen it all, done it all, have the correct tools to do the job right, and they’ve done their job (and gotten to know the area – big plus) for an extended period of time. They are primed for excellence.
