3 Reasons to Have RES Do A Foundation Assessment FIRST
As a homeowner, one of the most terrifying things that can happen is finding a crack in your foundation. While many times it can be an easy repair, this is a problem that could also quickly get expensive. Next thing you know, you are hiring a foundation repair company and spending thousands of dollars on repairs that you were not planning on spending. RES wants to make sure that your hard-earned money is spent on the right repair! We have listed three reasons to trust RES to do an independent foundation assessment before going to a contractor company.
Reason 1: We are Unbiased
In most cases, our foundation assessments are actually covered by a flat fee. It does not benefit us in any way to recommend repairs that may be unnecessary. Customer service is our highest priority and we will be sure to give you an honest and accurate assessment of potential foundation damage.
Reason 2: We are the Experts
Here at RES, we are highly trained professionals that specialize in structural troubleshooting. Each engineer is knowledgeable and ready to handle your foundation assessment.
Recently, our team of experts were able to save a client thousands – all due to a misdiagnosis:
RES got a call from a woman who received several bids on a crack in her foundation. The bids ranged from $15,000 to $40,000 in order to repair her foundation. She was confused about the drastic differences in bids and called us asking for an expert, unbiased opinion. When we did our troubleshooting assessment of her cracked foundation, we discovered she did not need ANY structural repairs – saving her $40,000!
Reason 3: We Give You a Design of the Repairs
At RES we know repair bids done by foundation repair companies can vary ALL over the place. They do not agree on price or what needs to be done. We also see what is called a “blanket repair”, meaning repairs that are done to cover all possibilities, even if some of those repairs are not necessary (but you still have to pay for them). When you contact RES, not only can we give you an answer to your foundation problems, we can provide a 3rd party design of the repair that needs to be done. You can see for yourself exactly what the diagnosis is and how the repair company will fix the problem. We give you the design of the repairs which you can hand straight to the foundation repair company, ensuring that there are no additional costs that are being tacked on. Our hope is that this will empower you to understand the problem with your foundation and save you potentially thousands on unneeded repairs.
RES understands that a cracked foundation can be scary for a homeowner. We want to make sure that you are getting an honest, accurate diagnosis of your foundation crack. Once we troubleshoot your foundation, we come up with an actionable plan and give you a design of the repairs to be handed to the foundation repair company. We at RES want you to know that we are here to explain and answer any questions that you may have about potential foundation issues. Our team of experts are waiting for your call. Let us help you troubleshoot any foundation issues that you may have.
