What is the Cost of Foundation Repair in San Antonio?
Obviously, we can’t give you an accurate price quote on our website or over the phone. Our free, on-site inspection will be necessary for us to determine the source and severity of your issues and to come up with a repair plan and quote for your individual situation. However, by taking a look at a breakdown of the basic, common variables and an overall price range of component costs can give you a better idea of what to expect when you receive your quote.
Here are a few variables that we will need to look at:
-What is the square footage of your home?
-Is your house a one-story or two-story home?
-Does your home have a pier and beam foundation with a crawl space, or does it have a slab foundation?
-What is the underlying soil type like?
-What is the moisture level like under and around your home?
-Is there any evidence of settling or sagging?
-What is the condition of your water and sewer lines?
-Are there any cracks or imperfections around your windows, doors or chimney?
-Are there any noticeable cracks in your brickwork, sheetrock, walls or floors?
-Is there any wood rot or mold present? If so, what is the extent of this damage?
-Are there any issues with the water drainage around or under your home?
-Have there been any past repair efforts?
Once we have the answers to all of these questions, we can begin working on the right repair plan for your foundation. Please remember, however, that the costs that are associated with these variables do vary based on your home’s specific needs. For example, if piers are needed, the cost will depend partly on the number of piers that need to be installed. The type of piers that will need to be purchased, the equipment that must be used and the depth of excavation are a few other factors that will impact the cost of your project.
You also have to think about other repairs that might need to be made at the same time. For example, plumbing repairs may need to be made, or you might have to make changes for proper water drainage. Tree root barriers, the need for beam replacements and more can also have an effect on the pricing.
