Foundation repair contractors Tempe, Arizona generally quote one-time price estimates for repairing foundation cracks. Most home inspectors think this is a fair quote, but many times it is not an accurate representation of their services and the long-term costs involved. Contractors may have many options available to them when repairing your foundation, including options that can increase their fees, such as “additional” insulation, grading, roofing, re-base, etc. Unfortunately, these “additions” rarely have any effect on the original cause of your foundation crack or leak, and if you need them, they may end up costing you more than your initial estimate. More about stem wall repair.

Many times foundation repair contractors are not part of a nationwide chain or franchise and will only offer (bid) the services they have contracted for from suppliers. These contractors usually go through a “sale process” to get you to a contract and may present several options, which ultimately do not all add up to the initial cost. In fact, this can be a good thing – it means you are not trying to compete for a better price with a contractor who is not on a national brand or “big name” system. However, there are companies that want to make money with any “penny” they can, and this may mean they will take less work and charge you more than necessary, or quote a higher price for services you require.

One of the most common reasons that foundation problems occur is poor soil conditions. Poor soil conditions in older buildings result in cavities and cracks that become larger over time and call for more extensive repairs. Often times, the only option is to dig deeper and start from scratch. Foundation cracking is a good example of soil conditions that can contribute to foundation cracking. Whether the crack is vertical or horizontal, settling of the land can also increase vertical cracks, as well as horizontal cracks. More about expansive clay soil.

Vertical cracks are more common than horizontal cracks, but horizontal cracks often get missed by building engineers who evaluate foundations. For instance, if a home has a window with a built-up basement, and the foundation is built on the bottom row, the home probably will need foundation replacement sooner rather than later. A qualified foundation repair expert can see if a bowing wall that have buckled behind it is causing the problem, or if the wall has not moved at all since it was built (this is called bowing out). More about foundation inspections.

In order for this foundation repair methods to work, a soil pressure is also needed to keep the concrete from moving. This happens when the ground is overfilled with compacted soil, which acts as a natural spacer. When the soil pressure is applied, the soil rolls back toward the edges of the house, creating a pocket of air. Contractors add air bags to prevent concrete dust from entering in this pocket.
