When you know you’re facing a big, expensive home project like foundation repair, it’s easy to want to stick your head in the sand. “Maybe the problem’s not that bad.” But when it comes to foundations, the problem is almost always “that bad” and will usually worsen if you don’t do something about it. Here are five reasons for repairing your foundation early.

#1) You’ll save money.

At RiteWay, we already work hard to keep our prices as low as possible by selecting the best, most cost-effective method for the job.

Nevertheless, you’ll always save a substantial sum by catching foundation problems as early as possible.

#2) You’ll preserve the value of your home.

If you don’t have a foundation, you don’t have a house. And a house with foundation problems is almost impossible to sell should you need to move.

If you don’t want the value of your home to plummet, you’ll address issues as soon as you notice them.

#3) You’ll be safer.

A home with a foundation issue is, in fact, a dangerous place. As foundation problems progress, walls can buckle and crumble. Ceilings can come crashing down.

If you don’t want anyone in your family to get hurt, you’ll want to get an inspection right away.

#4) You’ll prevent pest infestations.

Roaches, rats, and other pests exploit foundation problems to get inside the home. Once they’re inside, it can be difficult to remove them. 

Even commercial-grade pesticides don’t always do the trick, as new bug and rodent populations move in to replace the old ones.

Since these animals can slide into spaces the size of a quarter, it only takes a tiny amount of foundation damage to saddle you with a big problem.

#5) You may avoid legal issues.

Sometimes, foundation problems spread to neighboring properties. There are many townhomes in East Texas, and they are the most prone to these sorts of issues. Foundation problems can cause issues with water runoff and erosion, which can, in turn, damage neighboring foundations. 

If you don’t want to face a lawsuit over property damage, it’s best to call us immediately.
