How to Determine the Cost of Foundation Repairs

When it comes to foundation repair, it’s not a question of if but when you’ll need to invest in essential maintenance. And it’s going to cost you.

Exactly how much does foundation repair cost? The simple answer is there is no one-size-fits-all solution or price. Each home deserves solutions tailored to meet its own unique challenges and needs.

That’s where Indiana Foundation Service shines. We take pride in making the costs for these repairs clear and easy to understand during a free foundation inspection. Here are various factors to consider.

Why Should I Fix My Foundation?

It’s important to first think about why you need to fix your foundation in the first place. Foundation damage has several far-reaching affects, including:

  • The Problem Will Get Worse: Foundation problems never fix themselves. These issues also cost more to fix as they worsen.
  • Resale Value: Your home’s value easily decreases with present foundation damage, and it may be more difficult to sell. Additionally, homeowners in many states are required to tell potential buyers about foundation problems because of The Real Estate Seller Disclosure Act.
  • Appearance: Foundation problems are not only unsafe, but also unsightly, impacting interior and exterior aesthetics.
  • Door and Window Operation: Your house shifts as the foundation fails to hold the structure in place, causing doors and windows to stick and jam.
  • Use of Space: You can sometimes lose usable space throughout your house due to foundation failure.
  • Safety: Though rare, fondation collapse, falling bricks, chimney failure, and other serious safety hazards can emerge.
  • Pest Invasion: Insects and animals can get into your home through foundation cracks, becoming unwanted and uninvited guests.

How Do I Know If My Home Has Foundation Damage?

While we’ve touched on a few symptoms you’ll notice, here are other visible signs of foundation damage indicating the need for repair:

  • Uneven floors
  • Bowing walls
  • Foundation wall cracks
  • Drywall cracks or nail pops

Visit our Foundation Problem Signs page to view a comprehensive list of common issues. The extent of these and other problems weigh heavily on the type of necessary repair and how much it will cost.

What Else Affects Foundation Repair Cost?

Foundation repair solutions vary in cost, depending on the severity of the problem, the tools, materials, permits and time required to complete the work.

For example, the excavation required to reach a damaged footing is one factor that can affect the cost of a foundation settlement repair. Another related factor is the depth that piers must be driven to reach competent load-bearing soil when installing foundation piers underneath a settling foundation.

The good news is Indiana Foundation Service’s foundation repair solutions are permanent, less disruptive, and more economical than total foundation replacement.

Why Can’t I Get an Exact Price?

There are so many factors, like the ones listed above, to consider when calcualting the cost of foundation repair. It’s not fair to you to give you a ballpark estimate, especially without inspecting your house first.

We’ll never start by pricing high then throwing in deep discounts to make you feel like you’re getting a deal. You’re protected from variable pricing, and you won’t need to worry about negotiating the bottom line.

We believe in honesty, integrity, and transparency, and that’s what you’ll get when working with Indiana Foundation Service inspectors and crews.
