FOR YOUR PROTECTION
FOR YOUR PROTECTION
Building permits are required for any foundation repair in the city
of Huntsville and most other cities require the contractor to obtain
one. If your contractor asks you to get the permit, they do not
have a license. A new ordinance in the city of Huntsville requires
any home in a designated slope area to have a structural engineer
approval of the design before a permit will be issued. We have
an engineer we work with on these approvals which usually costs
between $200 and $300 for inspection of the home and his seal on
our repair plan with a letter to the city.
Before an agreement is reached with any company to repair your
foundation, check with previous customers concerning the companyís
reliability and service. Play it safe and call the Better Business
Bureau. The eventual decision of which contractor to use
should be based on cost of repair, past service record, methods of
repair and reputation of the company. Check the guarantee provided
by other contractors and determine when a guarantee will
be voided, such as thickness of footing or lack of steel reinforcement
in the footing. Most homes built before 1980 do not have
steel reinforced footings. Be very cautious of any contractor that
requires a deposit or any money when starting. They may not be
financially stable. We never require any money when we start
and normally require full payment on completion. On large jobs
costing approximately $15,000.00 or more, we may require partial
payment about half way through the job. Look at our deep-drilled,
concrete piers and other repair methods. Which method would
support your home better, forever? Itís obvious thatís why we
havenít changed to one of the easier repair methods.
Remember Ė lowest price isnít always the best choice.
OUR GUARANTEE FOR FOUNDATION SETTLEMENT
Should the specified corrective work fail due to faulty construction,
Foundation & Structural Renovations, Inc. will
repair at no cost to the owner. Failures in adjacent or other
parts of the structure that was not repaired or failures
caused by the massive intrusion of water in the repaired
area causing heave are not covered.
THE FINAL STEP - CLEANUP
We have always taken pride on leaving a yard as good as or better
than it was when we started. This probably accounts for the most
compliments we get. On completion, the area is graded, topsoil
added if required, shrubs replanted if removed and new mulch
placed in the beds around the home if disturbed. Lawn areas are
seeded and strawed. All concrete surfaces are pressure washed.
