'The Whys' For Stable Foundations
Thursday, June 25th, 2020 by Brandi Muller
We know undertaking a major home repair isn’t an easy decision. Sometimes, you may be tempted to put off a foundation repair because they tend to worsen very slowly, sometimes taking several years for a crack to grow just a few inches.
But we found a similar pattern among our customers on why they ended up getting the work done and, more importantly, why they were glad they did:
- Property value—For many people, the house they own is their largest single investment. Sometimes, protecting this investment requires addressing the underlying problem causing cracking drywall, sticking windows or uneven floors.
- Quality of life—An uneven floor or other symptoms of foundation problems can cause safety hazards around your home. Many homeowners are motivated to get their foundation fixed because they want to be safe in their own home.
- Peace of mind—Many homeowners don’t want to worry about problems getting worse. Often, while we repair one part of their foundation, the homeowner may opt to have us put preventative measures in place so they never have to worry about foundation issues again.
Some of our customers have waited until the time felt right to get the repair done. But waiting ended up costing more because the problem got worse. Whatever your reason for wanting the work done, you should know that the best time to fix foundation issues is now. That’s because foundation problems don’t get better with time; they get better with us.
