A Beginner’s Guide to Foundation Inspection and Repair

Foundation repair is one of the most important corrective actions you can take in your home. The foundation is literally what’s keeping your home on level ground. If you suspect that your home is beginning to sink or you notice cracks in your basement, it’s time to act! In today’s blog post, we’ll take a look at what every homeowner should know about the foundation inspection and repairs process.

It Starts with a Foundation Inspection

When you are beginning the repair process, it can be challenging to know who to call. As you gather information, it’s important to work with only the best. When contacting prospective contractors, insist on an in-home inspection. It’s impossible to diagnose a foundation problem sight unseen. If a company refuses to do a visual inspection, move on. Hiring a repair company blindly will only result in extended wait times, extended repair schedules, and increased costs.

Know Your Foundation Repair Partners Well

Even after you’ve received a few estimates, you must do your research. Visit review websites like Angie’s List and Yelp to learn more about what other customers have experienced with these companies. Ask friends, family, and neighbors who have recently had foundation repairs completed for their honest opinions. Trust us–when someone has had an excellent experience, they won’t stop talking about it. The opposite is also true. The team at HS Restoration strives for 100% customer satisfaction every single time.

Ask Questions and Remain Current about Your Repair

As the repair process gets underway, being updated on progress and changes is important. Be sure that you understand how your repair team will keep you in the know about their work. It might take some extra attention on your part, but contractors are in the business of doing good restoration work. Sometimes, they aren’t able to answer calls or emails right away. Make your expectations clear early on. If a company has a warm and respectful customer service approach, you can be assured that they will keep you updated. Ask questions and feel satisfied.
