You see cracks in your walls, ceilings or floors, or you’ve got doors that are hard to open and close. You think you might have a foundation problem, but you aren’t sure. Get an answer you can trust from Dura Pier by scheduling a Free Evaluation.
Our Foundation Repair Specialist will give you a courtesy reminder the day before the appointment, and then call or text you when they are on their way. Upon arrival, you’ll show us the areas that are causing you concern.
Next, we’ll measure and draw the perimeter of your home while making note of any signs of foundation issues. Once complete, we’ll move inside your home and take elevation readings using a ZIPLEVEL® PRO-2000. These are accurate to 1/10th”.
With this information, our Professional will prepare a customized repair plan that meets your needs and budget. You’ll get a copy of the repair plan, the quote for the work and a sample copy of the warranty. We can even discuss financing options! If you’re ready, you can sign an agreement at that time, or you can hold onto it. Our quotes are good for up to 1 year!
When you are ready to get your repair done, we’ll need 2 things from you:
With these two things we can send your repair plan to a licensed Professional Engineer for review and then file for your permit.
We’ll give you your scheduled start date and the estimated duration for your job. Most repairs are done in 1-3 days.
A week before your repairs, we’ll call 8-1-1 to have your gas, electric, phone and internet lines marked.
We’ll call you the day before your start date for a final confirmation.
The repair crew will arrive between 8-9am each and every day of the repair process. On the first day, your Foundation Repair Foreman will walk you through the repair plan and answer any questions you may have. Then we’ll get started.
After your repairs are complete, our office will get to work on issuing your final paperwork.
We will email you a copy of your warranty certificate as well as a final pier location diagram showing how deep each pier went and the hydraulic pressure reached for each pier at the depth of refusal. We’ll also maintain a copy of these in your permanent records.
Keep in mind that you should wait 8-12 weeks after the repair before making any cosmetic repairs at your home. This is because the framing of your home may continue to shift now that your foundation has been repaired. Also, the dirt may settle in the areas where we were digging. Simply call our office to schedule additional backfilling at no charge!
