Thanks to inspection process, homeowners avoid costly surprises during repairs
San Antonio, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/04/2014 -- Dry summer months in Texas frequently lead to homeowners watering their lawn regularly, yet these homeowners often fail to realize that they need to water the yard uniformly to ensure all foundation sides receive equal moisture. A failure to do so may result in foundation issues as the soil can pull away or separate from the foundation.
"Homeowners must monitor the foundation during the summer months and look for cracks and other signs of damage. During the winter months, damage may be seen in cracks in interior walls, a brick fireplace wall or exterior bricks. Nails in Sheetrock or plaster that pop are other signs of foundation issues. When one spots any of these problems, he or she needs to call in a company specializing in foundation repair san antonio," Colin Colbert of Foundation Repair Pros explains.
When one spots a problem with the home's foundation, he or she may worry about the foundation repair cost. This need not be a concern as Foundation Repair Pros offers a free inspection, with the goal being to evaluate the foundation and identify any problems which are present. One needs to determine the cause of the problem to find the appropriate solution, one which doesn't cost the homeowner any more than is necessary.
As Colbert points out, once the inspection is complete, Foundation Repair Pros can then advise the homeowner on the most cost-effective and best solution for a permanent fix. The technicians refuse to provide one size fits all solutions when it comes to pier and beam foundation repair or any repair of this type as each home is different. The solution that works for one situation may not be best for another and Foundation Repair Pros understands this.
Many factors play a role in the foundation repair cost, including the square footage of the home and the number of stories. The foundation type and underlying soil need to be assessed to determine the repair cost along with the presence of mold or wood rot. Past repair efforts must also be considered at this time.
"If any company provides an estimate for foundation repair over the phone, the homeowner needs to take care as the price may go up significantly once an inspection is done or while the repairs are in progress. This is never an issue when one chooses to use Foundation Repair Pros as the technician evaluates the foundation, identifies the problem, determines the most appropriate solution, and also makes recommendations on repairs to other portions of the home contributing to the problem. Homeowners are aware of what they must pay before any work is done as no one likes surprises at a time like this," Colbert promises.
