I Can Help
In this age of expensive foundation repair, it has become increasingly common for my customers to question me about what they can do to not only stop and reverse damage but what they might do to prevent foundation damage. I AM ALSO BEING ASK MORE AND MORE, HOW THEY CAN TAKE THINGS IN THEIR OWN HANDS AND PREVENT, STOP AND REVERSE FOUNDATION MOVEMENT AND DAMAGE, WITHOUT THE LARGE EXPENSE OF HIGH DOLLAR FOUNDATION REPAIR COMPANIES.
Truth is, most foundation damage THAT IS NOT the result of earthquakes, sinkholes, mudslides or plumbing leaks are not that difficult for a handy homeowner to deal with. It is also usually much less expensive, and with proper guidance, it is often more effective doing it yourself than having it done.
I really believe in the saying: IF YOU WANT PIERS CALL A FOUNDATION REPAIR COMPANY, IF YOU WANT A FRENCH DRAIN CALL A DRAINAGE COMPANY, BUT IF YOU WANT THE SOLUTION THAT IS BEST FOR YOU, AND YOUR SITUATION, CALL SOMEONE WHOSE INCOME IS NOT DEPENDENT OF WHAT THEY TELL (or sell) YOU. With foundation damage you may wish to consider a consultant.
Foundation companies have high overheads. Their commissioned salespeople take a bunch off the top. Advertising, including celebrity spokespersons take another big chunk of money, and of course the profits are big. The lesser expenses are labor, materials and permits which are doable by many homeowners. I can show you how to act as the general contractor on your project, I can show you the problem, I can advise as to the solutions available, and where to find labor and materials. I can help you get it right and usually save you a good deal of money.
Whether it’s old construction or new, slab or crawl space (pier and beam), whether its drainage or piers that are required, the biggest question is defining the problem and choosing the correct solution. Even with plumbing issues I can walk you through the steps necessary to complete the project and return the home to where it should be...and keep it there!
Thousands of un-needed piers are sold and installed each year right here in north Texas. It is a crime how many homeowners are conned into paying inflated prices for piers that they don’t need and drainage that doesn’t work.
If you are unsure about what to do…contact me, I can answer your questions and help you decide what is best for your situation. I have been helping owners of homes, apartments, and commercial building make rational foundation decisions for over thirty-five years.
I can explain how to prevent, stop and usually reverse foundation damage. I can show you what you need and how to get it completed, whether you want it done for you or you would like to do it yourself.
