How Can You Tell if Your House has Foundation Problems?
Have you begun noticing small changes around your home and now wonder if foundation problems might be the cause? Small alignment problems might be signaling a much more significant problem. However, we’re here to help before the situation becomes too dire!
Perhaps you’ve noticed some of these signs:
- Concrete raising
- Gaps around exterior window frames and doors
- Sagging or uneven floors
- Cracks in the floors or walls
- Cracks in your brick that look like stair steps
- Separation between the wall and counters or cabinets
These are all important signs that can signal deficiencies in the structural integrity of your home. Our foundation specialists are well-versed in all kinds of issues that these signs might indicate, so we can identify and recommend issues that you may be unaware of yourself!
Our foundation contractors can quickly identify the root cause of any problems your home may have, and then we’ll propose the best solution for you. Whether it’s due to poor construction, soil problems, weight-related pressure problems, sagging floors, or structural damage, we can handle any type of basement wall foundation repair or crawl space repair.
What Do Foundation Repairs Cost? Will It Fit My Budget?
We understand that affordability is one of the top-most priorities for any homeowner. Keeping this in mind, we have compiled an easy-to-understand checklist that will help you determine what prices you can expect for foundational repair, and whether it involves just your crawl space or upgrading your basement area's structural integrity. Below, we mention national averages, just to give an idea of what people are typically spending on residential foundation repair in and around Birmingham, Alabama.
Here are some key variables that influence the cost of repairs.
- Your home's age and location
- The extent of your home's structural issues
- The materials used for your foundation's construction (slab, footing, etc.)
- Price and availability of materials, local labor rates, and permitting requirements
- Additional work done on your house (concrete lifting, mold remediation, etc.)
- Your property’s terrain, level of elevation, and surrounding soil types
- The meticulousness of soil preparation done by the contractor who built your home
- Your own personal home improvement goals (such as basement waterproofing, water intrusion repair, etc.)
Trade organizations and companies have run comprehensive, nationwide studies to find out what homeowners across the country are spending on foundation repairs. Reports show that costs range from a few hundred dollars for superficial cracks to $10,000+ for extensive and thorough foundation repair and upgrades.
Keeping this reference range in mind, you can be confident that your own rate would likely fall somewhere in the middle range. A recent survey of more than 2,600 foundation repair customers reports that foundation repair costs somewhere between $1,842 and $6,566 for a return to "like new." In Birmingham, the average cost hovers around $7,400 for structural repairs—but that's not set in stone.
