- How long can I wait? Do I really need to do this now?
Honestly, that is up to you as you already know. We don’t like to scare people as part of a foundation repair sales presentation. That is not how we would want to be treated. However, the reality is that your home is already very likely 15 years older, if not more. It quite possibly could already have a plumbing issue or slab leak that is not detected in your water bill (sanitary leak) that is getting worse by the moment and undermining the integrity of your home. That’s just a fact of life in Texas. This will not get better… only worse. We certainly understand the economic conditions right now, so we try to work with clients as much as possible. The fact is that we see the most movement in hot and dry conditions which are the most extreme in the summer. As the foundation moves, so will everything else in your house, i.e. pipes, walls, framing, floors, etc. When those things move, it is basically a “Russian Roulette” scenario of what breaks first. That’s just the truth. Time is always of the essence.
- Why are all my estimates so different?
Let’s see… commissioned sales force? Some companies attempt to keep a bid or scope of repair under a point that they feel you can afford, regardless of what the needed solution is. Perhaps, they are trying to keep an estimate total below other company’s estimates you have mentioned. It is very important that you understand the scope of work that a foundation repair company is suggesting. Adding a few extra piers can be costly while omitting a few piers can spell disaster! Check references! Check references! Check references! Our owners estimate our jobs. That is, the only thing we have to gain on your estimate is good solid business that will generate referrals in the future. We’re not going anywhere, and we don’t stop working when we’ve made our car payment for the week. Your foundation repair problems are what they are. We do not add or delete piers to get your business.
- How do I know I’m getting a fair and competitive price?
We have a Best Price Guarantee which states that we will beat any comparable written estimate from another foundation repair company. We require that the other estimate come from another fully-insured company that proposed the same concrete or steel pressed pier with the same number of piers. We will not be beat by price.
- Who supervises the work at my house?
We only have 3 crews in our company due to our strict standards for our foreman. All our foreman have at least 15 years experience in repairing foundations and have been screened with background checks. They are carefully screened and managed to insure that they are the best.
- Do you offer financing?
Absolutely… We offer extremely competitive financing through a major financial institution. If credit keeps you from taking advantage of this, we also offer Guaranteed, in-house financing to fit your situation.
- Don’t all foundation repair companies carry GLC insurance?
Not a chance. We pay ridiculously high premiums due to the many, many companies that work recklessly and do not carry insurance. We give you the piece of mind that you are protected and working with a reputable company that is audited annually. If you have an unlicensed subcontractor get injured at your home, they will have recourse against you…. Keep that in mind.
