During a real estate transaction, the motivations of a buyer and a seller are different. If there is a home in Columbia that needs foundation repair, a seller will usually contact the cheapest concrete contractor to get the job done. However, a buyer would easily prefer to contact a concrete contractor with experience and knowledge that offers a more permanent solution to the problem.

Home Buyers

If you are in the process of buying a home in Columbia and there have been questions raised concerning the foundation, please give us a call. There are plenty of contractors willing to solve your foundation issues, but they won’t solve them as good as we will, and at a very fair price.

What to Look For

One of the most common warning signs of potential foundation issues is the appearance of stress cracks in your walls. These stress cracks can be in the interior or the exterior of your home and will often be seen near doors and windows. Another sign that a home might have foundation problems if the windows and doors stick or are hard to open and close.

Patching these cracks will not fix your foundation problem. So don’t think that if you buy a home with foundation issues that a little putty and paint will resolve the issue.
