Most people have lots of questions when it comes to foundation repair. We want to help answer some of those common questions, so we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions.

Why Should I Repair My Foundation?

Foundation settlement and lateral movement, when left unattended, cause serious structural damage to your home. After a long period of time, it can even become unsafe to be in your house. Homes with structural damage are also nearly impossible to sell, and banks don’t normally lend on houses with foundation issues either. For your safety, wellbeing, and even the efficiency of your home, it’s imperative to fix your foundation if it has cracked or settled.

How Do I Know If I Need Foundation Repairs?

There are some common signs of foundation settlement. Check out our “Signs of Foundation Settlement” on for more comprehensive information. They include:

How Long Do Foundation Repairs Take?

The length of the project depends on the scale of the job. On average, we can complete a job in 1-4 days. If you contact us for a free estimate, we can give your specific repairs a more precise time estimate.

Will Repairing My Foundation Cause Additional Damage?

Foundation repairs may close up your current cracks, but there is a chance that it can cause new ones. Typically, stair-step cracks are gone after the house has been realigned. However, other factors such as underground plumbing or landscape near the foundation of your home may undergo some damage. Dry Basement® always treats your home with respect and we will minimize as much damage as we possibly can.

How Much Do Foundation Repairs Cost?

Because every job varies from size, scope, the cost of repairs also range. The cost could be a few thousand dollars or to an upwards of tens of thousands of dollars. No matter what, Dry Basement® Foundation Repair always provides you with a detailed free estimate. We also offer financing options that extend from 1 to 5 years, as well as an option for 365 days same as cash, 0% interest financing.

Are Repairs Covered by the Builders Warranty or Homeowners Insurance?

Most home builders offer a one-year structural warranty on a home when originally constructed. However, most foundation problems don’t occur in the first year. If you have surpassed your builder’s warranty, typically repairs will come out of pocket. Most home insurance policies don’t cover structural repairs. However, once you schedule a free estimate, we can work with you with our financing options to come up with an affordable plan for you.

Do Foundation Repairs Come With a Warranty?

Dry Basement®’s do! We offer a Better-Than-Lifetime-Guarantee®.

When a company closes down after just a few years in business, their “lifetime” guarantee to a homeowner becomes worthless. That’s why Dry Basement® offers it’s Better-Than-Lifetime-Guarantee®.

Systems that we installed in 1975 are still in operation today, more than 40 years later. These systems continue to provide our customers with reliable and effective foundation repair and basement waterproofing solutions.
