70 % Of ALL Homes in Texas Will Need Foundation Repair!
I was surprised to hear that 70 % of all homes in Texas will need foundation repair at some point. Wow... that seems like a BIG number! I heard this surprising statistic at a recent training on foundations I attended with Perma Pier Foundation. Don't let that number scare you! I have seen thousands of homes over my 12 year real estate career , while surprising, I do think this number is accurate. Alot of homes, newer and older, I show or list for sale have settlement and I always recommend an evaluation by a reputable company like Perma Pier Foundation.
They will give a free evaluation !
I also think foundation repair is not a negative but a positive when it comes to selling your home. Most buyers are okay with purchasing a home with foundation work if it is done with the following :
- Work is completed with a reputable company who is still in business
- A post plumbing test was done and no leaks were found
- A Structural Engineer's Report is available for review
- There is a transferable lifetime warranty to the new buyer
Texas soils vary with black clay, sand & even red dirt. So know your soil and if you think you need foundation repair call Perma Pier Foundation for a free evaluation. If you are selling your home, you may qualify for payment to the foundation company at the sale date.
