The base of your home is made from cinder block, stone, or it is a monolithic or poured structure. Regardless of what it is made from, its job is to support the weight of your home and keep it stable and secure. If there is a problem here, it can cause a lot of problems for the building's structural integrity, making it a dangerous place for you and your family to be.

How Much Will it Cost?
We are often asked how does foundation repair cost and while it's true that a lot of structural problems are similar in nature, they all require a unique and customized plan of action to get them properly taken care of. For example, if a significant amount of excavation work is required to reach a damaged area of a wall, this will cost more than a project which doesn't require as much labor. However, rest assured knowing that we will never try to tell you that you need some type of repair done if you really don't, and we do not upsell our products.
