This is why 
Foundation Repair Contractors
can't agree on repairs!


Right or wrong:

  • check
     They sell their piers as a fix for whatever causes crack in walls, floors, bricks or causes doors to not close properly. 
  • check
    They  use flawed elevations to determine "the need for piers"  "the number of piers needed" and " the placement of the piers".
  • check
    They randomly select an arbitrary spot to call ZERO. They have NO BENCHMARK from the date of construction.
  • check
    The NEEDED BENCHMARKS ARE NOT AVAILABLE to the homeowner or foundation contractor.
  • check
    They  each use a different point for ZERO so their numbers are different, causing  their recommendations to be different.
  • check
    What they have in common is they are usually wrong on what it takes to fix a foundation correctly and permanently.
  • check
    Unneeded or incorrectly placed piers will not permanently prevent, stop or reverse foundation damage! 
  • check
    Unneeded piers will usually cause additional damage over a short period of time.

That's why foundation contractors don't agree on repairs!  Continue on!

Be very careful when placing your home in the hands of someone whose livelihood is based on the sale of piers, or who uses foundation elevations to try to convince you that piers are the answer. Unless the home has experienced the effects of a major earthquake, landslide, sinkhole or other catastrophic trauma it is unlikely that extensive foundation movement has or will occur or that piers are needed.

"When we discovered foundation problems, we also discovered the problem of finding the truth. We were told by several contractors that we needed piers (support) around the entire perimeter of the house.


Some contractors said we      needed as many as 20 piers and even wanted to cut through the foundation inside the house and place piers there.

Since contractors get paid by the number of piers, the more you agree to install, the more they get.


Richard Rash outlined a solid, reasonable approach to fixing the problem. (We ended up with half as many piers as some recommended and no piers inside the house.) I didn’t know it initially, but over time I’ve come to learn that he was the only person who actually understood what was going on with our foundation". Phillip, Grapevine, TX
