6 Reasons to Hire a Local Foundation Repair Company

When you need to find a professional to perform foundation repair and basement waterproofing, where do you start? Instead of choosing the top selection on a google search that is probably a large corporation that has spent a lot of money to be the first on your search list, you may want to consider a smaller and locally owned business. Not only are you supporting local, a company that lives in your community is more invested in the outcome.

Here are 6 reasons why you should hire a local foundation repair and basement waterproofing company over the large corporations:

1. Contributes to the Community

When you purchase at locally owned businesses rather than nationally owned, more money is kept in the community because locally-owned foundation repair companies, such as Dry Basement, purchase from other local businesses and vendors. Purchasing local helps grow other businesses as well as the local tax base.

2. Improved Customer Service

When you hire a business that is local to the area, the employees are also located in your community. They know the culture and the needs of the community they live in and in turn, provide superior customer service across the board. At Dry Basement, your satisfaction has always been our first priority. Everyone in our company from the owners, the office staff, your estimator, and each member of the crew is committed to this goal.

3. Local Businesses In the Community.

Local businesses are owned by people who live in the community, are less likely to leave, and are more invested in the community’s welfare and future. Dry Basement is owned by Otto Flick who has lived most of his life in the Midwest. He founded Dry Basement® Waterproofing and Foundation Repair in1975. He is actively involved in the local community having served on the BBB Board of Directors in Kansas City. Our certified professional engineers who are licensed in Kansas, Missouri and Iowa.

4. Reduced Environmental Impact

Local businesses such as Dry Basement are headquartered or have offices in the cities they are serving, which means a decrease in travel and emissions by the employees. Also, when local businesses buy local, this means supplies are not having to travel those miles either, decreasing the carbon footprint of the company as a whole.

5. Small Local Businesses Provide Local Jobs

According to the Small Business Administration, small companies create 1.5 million jobs annually and account for 64% of new jobs created in the United States. When you hire a local company, you are helping to provide more jobs for your neighbors and friends which benefits the community as a while.

6. Local Benefit to the Public

Local business pay sales taxes to the city and county the business is located in. Many larger corporations pay their taxes elsewhere and that money isn’t benefiting your community at all. Taxes paid into your local government programs is used to support public schools, parks, roads, and sidewalks, as well as fund public service workers and first responders.
