How much will my foundation repair cost?

For a residential home, a foundation repair could range between $1,500.00 to $65,000.00. Why is there such a great range of costs? Foundation repair cost varies considerably depending on these 7 factors:

  1. 1. The type of problems that need to be corrected
  2. 2.The type of foundation you have
  3. 3. Access to the structure for equipment and labor
  4. 4. Excavation difficulty
  5. 5. Material cost
  6. 6. Size of repair
  7. 7. Location

In general, a foundation is likely to have the following problems:

  • Cracks in concrete, mortar, or cinder blocks
  • Water infiltration in basement or crawl space
  • Sinking foundation
  • Foundation deterioration

Crack repair:

A single crack repair is a relatively low cost, but even there it depends on the damage. More extensive and more prolonged the crack more is needed to be done, more materials, and more digging.

In general, you could expect a cost of $1 500,00 up to $3,500 for a crack repair.

Basement waterproofing:

Basement waterproofing of the perimeter of the house goes into a broader scale scope of work. It involves excavation, drainage, and membrane application. A single bungalow may take 5 to 7 days to accomplish. Price range may vary between $15 000,00 to $25 000,00 and more.

Foundation stabilization and leveling:

When a house is settling you need hydraulic pushed piers to be installed in order to stabilize and lift the house. This type of operation usually is costly for it involves specialized types of equipment and engineering. The price range may vary between $3,500.00 to $65,000.00 and more.

The first thing to be able to establish a foundation repair cost is to put all the information together. This is diagnostic.
