Don’t panic, call the experts at Premiere Foundation Repair.
We put together a few tips to help you through the process as you meet with foundation repair companies.
Research the Foundation Company
This seems like a no brainer, but it is important to take some time to research the company. Read the company’s website and learn about their products. Find out how long they have been in business? It is very important to hire an established company, rather than a company that might not be around to honor their warranties. At Premiere, we’ve been serving the Dallas metro for over 30 years.
Here are a few more important questions to ask. What kind of foundation piers do they use? What are the benefits of their piers? Do they offer a warranty on their products? Also, be sure to look online for some reviews. Most companies will have reviews on Google, Angie’s List, HomeAdvisor, etc.
Research the Products
There are several different types of foundation piers available, and every company likes to boast of how their system is the best. It is important to take the time to educate yourself about the foundation piers that a company uses to fix your foundation. Any quality foundation repair company will have extensive information about their products. There are a lot of cheap piers on the market that will fail relatively quickly. At Premiere Foundation Repair, we offer a couple choices of piers depending on what works best for the homeowner.
Pay Attention to the Details
It is important to pay close attention to your whole experience with each foundation repair company. Was the company polite on the phone when you called them to schedule an appointment? You can tell a lot about how a company treats it’s customers by their customer service on the phone. Was the technician that evaluated your house professional and knowledgeable? Does the company warranty their products? Be sure that the company is friendly and customer oriented. This means they will take care of your property and your needs.
