Your foundation needs repair, and one company offers a patented foundation repair method at a higher cost. Is this good?
In areas like Plano, Dallas and Fort Worth, the soil and the structure determine the best foundation repair method. About 6-8 years ago at a membership meeting of the Foundation Repair Association, one company spokesman was asked.. why did you get a patent on XYZ? The response.. we needed a marketing edge.
A marketing edge is not what you need. You need the foundation repair method that meets the needs of your house, your situation. We are not saying that the patent is without merit. We are saying that the problem dictates the best foundation repair method. One patent will not solve all of the problems in the Dallas Fort Worth region.
A foundation on deep sand seldom needs any type of repair. A foundation on deep clay would be best served by lifting the whole structure off the clay.
It is seldom practical to perform a whole house lift. Furthermore, the structural benefit of a whole house lift seldom warrants the cost.
When a foundation repair company tauts, our method is best because it is patented… watch out. You may be snookered.
At Granite Foundation Repair we offer the broadest selection of foundation repair methods, because your house deserves the best foundation repair method for its particular situation. And sometimes, the best method is not underpinning. It may be as simple as drainage correction.
