What Are Costs That Factor Into Foundation Repair Work?
Costs for foundation repair in Elk Grove are derived from many different factors. These include costs for equipment, preparation costs, costs for custom engineering, and more.
A main consideration for costs would be the kind of repair method and the severity of the problem. The costs of crack injections for cosmetic repair will be significantly different that the cost of installing helical piles for severe foundation damage.
If the problem is mostly cosmetic, crack injections may suffice. This may cost significantly less other methods like installing helical piles.
Will a Limited Warranty on Repair Help with Home Resale?
Occasionally, a homebuyer may be concerned about a previous foundation issue during their home buying process. The National Limited Trust Warranty offered by Ram Jack should perk the interest of buyers for multiple reasons.
First, the Warranty is transferrable. When you sell the home, the Warranty transfers to the next homeowner.
Second, the Warranty is backed up by the Ram Jack Dealers Association. This means that your claim will still be honored in the future even if the specific Ram Jack location that performed your work goes out of business or retires.
Do Foundation Cracks Always Indicate a Serious Problem?
Small cracks around a foundation are often normal due to the settling of soil around a home that will happen naturally over time. Cracks that run vertically are the most common and are usually just a sign of foundation settling.
Cracks that run diagonally are usually a sign of uneven (differential) settling of your home's foundation. This kind of repair is often more serious.
Cracks that run horizontally are usually the most problematic. These often indicate severe foundation failure.
Because foundation cracks can signify major problems with your foundation, they should always be taken seriously.
