F.A.Q.

I am planning to sell my home and I've seen some signs of foundation damage. Can I sell the property without hiring professionals for a foundation repair in Philadelphia?

There are defect disclosure laws which prohibit homeowners from patching up foundation cracks in order to conceal them and sell the property without informing the potential buyer of the problem. Almost all mortgage companies won't issue loans on houses without a foundation repair in Philadelphia first. There is an exception, however, and that’s when a cash buyer is willing to purchase the property "as is."

How will I know if there is an issue with my home's foundation?

There's only one way to know for sure and that is by hiring a foundation estimator to conduct an evaluation on site. If, by chance, there's an apparent issue with the foundation, the estimator will offer a price quote and a repair plan to remedy it. If the estimator you hired has work ethics that are as solid as a rock, then you can expect to receive the honest findings from the evaluation on a report/document. There are self-proclaimed "experts" that upsell homeowners just to increase the bill, so make sure you only hire Fortified Foundations because they have a good reputation.

What can cause a foundation to heave?

Heaving is usually caused by the expansion of hard compact clays due to the presence of water. It’s like a dry, solid sponge which expands whenever it gets wet. Most of the time, foundations that are heaving are diagnosed as settlement. To avoid an error with the diagnosis, it’s crucial that you only hire a professional who is seasoned in the industry. This will save you a heap of troubles as well as money.

What would happen if a foundation repair in Philadelphia is delayed or ignored?

Each case is unique on its own. However, most conditions worsen as time passes. If you plan to sell a property that has a foundation damage, leaving it unrepaired will force you to give the buyer a huge discount. Also, foundation damage can cause roof trusses to be unstable, making your windows and doors inoperable. Cut your losses short and have your foundation repaired as soon as possible.

I am planning to ask for quotes from multiple service providers. How much should I expect a foundation repair in Philadelphia to cost?

The average cost of a foundation crack repair in Philadelphia is between $5,000 and $15,000. This wide discrepancy in price is due to the fact that the price depends on each individual situation. Bigger damages require more complex solutions. These remedies take time and resources to complete, which is why you should expect a higher quote.
