Choosing the right foundation repair contractor may be one of the biggest decisions you’ll make in your life. Why? Well, if the foundation is repaired correctly, your home will provide adequate shelter and also keep you and your family safe and comfortable for many more years to come. Since we already wrote an article that explains why many people choose our company for house lifting services, we have decided to write a continuation of that article in order to present the 5 most important reasons why many Houstonians also choose us for foundation repair.
1. We have plenty of relevant experience and an extensive portfolio.
When it comes to foundation repairs, it’s always a good idea to choose a local contractor that provides specialized services and has a great deal of experience with repairing home foundations throughout the Houston area. However, many Houston homeowners choose us not only because we specialize in all types of home foundation repair, but also because we specialize in other related fields, including plumbing/sewer line replacement, root barrier installation, landscape drainage, and floor leveling.
Why is experience in related fields so important? Regardless of the foundation issues, you have, hiring a contractor that can also identify their root causes and knows how to fix them is the only way to prevent the recurrence of the same type of damage as well as other foundation problems. Conversely, if you hire a contractor that doesn’t have experience in any of the aforementioned fields, the same factors that have caused the damage in the first place could affect your foundation again in the future. As a result, your home might need additional repair work after the initial foundation repair job has been completed.
2. We work with our customers directly and answer their questions thoroughly.
At Allied Foundation, we understand that foundation problems and repairs can be very stressful and worrisome for most homeowners. As a responsible foundation repair contractor, which is also licensed and insured, we truly care about your home and foundation repair project. It is for this reason that our specialists are ready to answer any questions you might have about our foundation repair process and offer you any details you need in order to put your worries to rest. Furthermore, all our professionals know that their job isn’t only to fix your foundation, but also to help you feel comfortable with the choices you make regarding your foundation repair. Since your home is likely your most valuable asset, you can never ask too many questions!
3. We offer a free foundation review and repair estimate.
The foundation inspections performed by our experts typically depend on the signs of the foundation problems you’ve noticed. However, you could also require a foundation review just to prevent potential foundation problems. In both cases, our qualified professionals will check:
- your floor for signs of bowing or sagging;
- crawlspace and foundation perimeter for cracks, water damage, soil movement, and shifting;
- walls for cracks and bowing;
- doors and windows for misalignment, sticking, and other issues that may indicate a foundation problem;
- the soil around your property for signs of shifting, poor drainage, sinkholes, and any other problems that may affect your foundation.
After a thorough inspection and consultation, we will present you with a brief proposal and free estimate for the project. This will include details on the repair method(s) and materials that we recommend, a timeline for the project, and the estimated total cost. Once you review and accept the proposal, your foundation repair project will be underway.
4. We offer a lifetime transferable warranty.
As a leader in Houston foundation repair, we back up our foundation repairs with a lifetime transferable warranty. Not only does this type of warranty ensure that we’ll take care of any warranted problems that may occur at no additional cost to you, but it will also be automatically transferred to the new owner when selling your home.
5. We’ve been in business since 1982!
Compared to an inexperienced contractor, a foundation repair company that’s been around for many years and has many positive reviews will be more likely to recommend the most suitable foundation repair method and create a proper repair plan for your property, according to the latest industry standards and safety regulations. Since we have plenty of experience repairing home foundations and the expertise that comes with it, our professionals are able to diagnose just about every problem that can occur with a foundation in the Houston area and also use proven solutions and techniques to fix your foundation for good. In addition to many years of experience and a good reputation, we also have appropriate licensing, certifications, and insurance that guarantees you’re getting the best possible service for your money.
