Sorry to say that in the State of Texas, there is no license available for foundation repair. Electricians, plumbers, and sprinkler installers are licensed. Remodelers who perform repairs in excess of $20,000 are licensed and fall under the regulations of the TRCC.
Any company which advertises that it has a license has a license to do something other than foundation repair and is misleading in its advertisements.
In most Dallas Fort Worth area cities, there is a requirement for a foundation repair permit. As a condition to obtain a permit, the repair plan must be approved and stamped by a registered professional engineer.
The Foundation Repair Association has worked to fill the licensing void. Since the program’s inception, over 70 foundation evaluators nationwide have studied, tested, and earned the right to be called Certified Foundation Repair Specialists. These people are required to take annual classes in order to retain certification.
As a degreed engineer, I obtained the Certification a few years ago and can attest to the level of study required to pass the exam.
