We’ve been in this business for over 25 years, and we’ve only seen it a handful of times.

That means we’ll be upfront with you about how much it will cost to repair your foundation. We won’t settle for anything less than doing right by you and your family.
Why do you call it an investment?
Just like your home is an investment, so too is the foundation of your home. If you neglect the foundation, damage can be done to the home, resulting in lower property value and a lower resale price. When fixed, the value of your home is increased, in addition to giving you peace of mind.
Why is foundation repair expensive?
Foundation repair involves the structural integrity of your house. In order to insure your house will not move again, we drill into the earth and drive our piles into the bedrock. We use the highest grade steel we can find, and employ the help of both a structural engineer and a Geotech (soil expert). Foundation repair also requires permits from local municipalities. All of these factors add to the cost. Typically, it costs $1,500 per pile we drive. Sejant, The Geotech and structural engineer, all discuss what the ideal number of piles is to make sure your house is staying put.
