Determining the Factors in Foundation Repair Pricing
While many foundation problems are similar, each one demands a customized solution to provide the best value and performance. At Baird Foundation Repair, we take pride in making the costs for these repairs as clear and easy to understand as we possibly can.
To help you decide if our solution is right for you, we provide free foundation repair quotes. Each quote includes an on-site inspection, professional assessment of your foundation issue, and detailed cost quote that we build with you for your home.
Why Should I Fix My Foundation?
Many homeowners wonder if foundation repair is a necessary expense. At Baird Foundation Repair, we strongly recommend fixing any problems for the following reasons:
- The problem will get worse: A foundation problem never gets better on its own. As it gets worse, the problem will cost more to fix.
- Resale value: Who wants to buy a house with a foundation problem? Nobody!
- Appearance: Foundation problems often cause ugly cracks — not only in the foundation itself but inside the home as well.
- Door and window operation: As your foundation fails to hold the structure in place, your house will bend and twist. This will cause doors and windows to stick and jam.
- Use of space: Sometimes you can lose the use of your space because of foundation failure. That’s not what you paid for when you bought your home!
- A safer home: It’s unusual, but disasters like foundations collapsing, chunks of brick veneer falling off the house, and other serious safety hazards do emerge.
- Keep pests away: Insects and animals can get into your home through cracks in the foundation, becoming unwanted and uninvited guests.
The Supportworks Network
At Baird Foundation Repair, we are proud to be a part of the Supportworks dealer network, which consists of nearly 100 of the most experienced structural repair contractors in North America. We receive top-of-the-line foundation repair products and training to ensure that we are always providing cutting-edge technology and quality service.
Supportworks engineers not only focus on product design and quality control; they also provide technical support to engineers, architects, building departments, and general contractors.
All of our System Design Specialists are trained on how to design a foundation repair system that will give you successful results without “over-engineering” a system that costs more than it should. Your representative will be basing the cost of your repair off a price sheet. You’re protected from variable pricing, and you won’t need to worry about negotiating the bottom line.
Why Choose a Supportworks Dealer?
Foundation repair solutions vary in cost, depending on the type and severity of the problem and the tools, materials, and time required to complete the work. For example, the amount of excavation required to reach a damaged footing is one factor that can affect the cost of a foundation settlement repair.
Another cost factor is the depth that piers must be driven to reach competent strata when underpinning a settling foundation. The good news about the repairs undertaken by Supportworks dealers is that they are much less disruptive and much more economical than total foundation replacement.
The Bottom Line…
Supportworks dealers never start by pricing high only to offer a discount at the end that makes you feel you’re getting a “great” deal. Although the cost for a foundation repair will vary depending on the type of system and level of difficulty, you can rest assured that you will get a fair, competitive price for your final results.
Choosing a Supportworks dealer to repair your foundation ensures that your foundation will get the most professional treatment with the best available technology and products. Should you need it, each of our products is backed by a full written warranty.
The Real Estate Disclosure Act
The Real Estate Seller Disclosure Act requires that foundation problems be disclosed to potential home buyers. Realtors say that they have to discount a home with structural defects 10 to 20% in order to go forward with the sale of the home.
People are very hesitant to buy a home with a structural defect, and if they do, they certainly don’t pay full price for it. Even if you negotiate a lower price with a home buyer, the bank may be hesitant to grant a mortgage on a house with a major structural problem.
What is your home worth in today’s market? Not fixing your foundation costs you much more money than fixing it. It’s simply an investment that makes sense!
