When you’re choosing a contractor for foundation repair, quality matters. Foundation problems can cause damage throughout your whole home, harming walls, doors, stairs, and much more. But a poor foundation repair job can actually make things much worse.
Once a bad foundation repair job is done, fixing the issue becomes much harder and more expensive. Making the right choice the first time is essential.

Here are three ways to make an informed choice and find a great foundation contractor:
1. Look for Longevity
Almost all foundation repair contractors will offer a lifetime warranty – but that’s only good as long as they stay in business! Foundation repair is a tough business that requires a commitment to quality. Be sure the company is reputable and has been around the block. An established local company cares about your results and will give you the quality service you deserve.
2. Insist on Insurance
What happens if there’s an accident or injury on your property during a foundation repair job? The answer comes down to liability insurance. Good foundation repair companies carry a large liability insurance policy to protect you. Insist on seeing a copy of the insurance policy before work begins. Then, call the insurer and verify that the policy is valid and protects you.
3. Check Online Reviews
Online reviews are a great way to get a sense for how a company is seen in the community. You can look at places like Facebook, the Better Business Bureau, Yelp, Google Reviews, and The Good Contractors List. This is especially important for checking out your “low bidders.” If they are cutting corners in their work, it is bound to come out in their reviews sooner or later.
Choosing a Trusted Foundation Repair Company Makes All the Difference
What’s the bottom line? Do your research and follow your instincts. Get more than one bid and if you aren’t comfortable with anything a contractor is saying, move on. A little legwork now can help you go forward with confidence in your foundation repair and your home’s future.
