Foundation Repair Costs – What to Expect

 Foundation Repair Costs – What to Expect

Foundation Repair Costs

People call us every day asking how much it will cost to repair their foundation.  While we’d love to be able to provide a quick answer, it’s just not that simple.  Foundation repair is complex, and foundation repair costs vary according to the job.  Some repairs require minimal equipment and man-hours, while other jobs need custom pieces, special installation equipment, and a team of workers working multiple days.

What factors affect repair costs?

Foundation Repair Costs

  • Preparation – The amount of prep needed to complete a foundation repair depends on a number of things.  First, is there easy access to the repair area?  If the needed repair is taking place on the edge of a cliff where equipment isn’t easily transported, it may require more hours to complete.  Second, is demolition or excavation required?  While some of our repairs only need a quick pile installation, others need drilling, opening new holes in existing foundations, or extensive digging.
  • Engineering – As you can imagine, lifting and stabilizing the foundation in one area of a home is completely different from repairing the foundation in the wing of a commercial structure.  Depending on the type of job, custom engineering may be required.
  • Equipment – It’s simple!  Equipment costs money.  Usually bigger jobs require more equipment, which affects the foundation repair costs.
  • Unseen problems – Not all jobs are as simple as they appear.  What looks like a simple repair may be much more complicated based on underlying soil makeup, utilities in the area, or other factors.
