Common Foundation Repair Myths
It’s an emergency
While it’s true that remedying problems sooner rather than later will save you time and further damage, we can almost guarantee your house isn’t about to crumble.
This will destroy me financially
You may have heard horror stories, but most foundation fixes are affordable. A single steel pier only costs about $600 to install. Nearly all of our full-house repairs are under $10,000 – and yours is likely to be a lot less.
This will ruin my house’s value
Due to Oklahoma’s unusual clay-rich soil, foundation movement and settlement is an exceedingly common occurrence. Since all Oklahoma homes were built on the same ground, nearly every home in this part of the state has some foundation movement. Don’t fret.
Foundation issues are an old house problem
Even some brand-new houses have foundation problems due to soil composition, erosion or weather conditions the day the slab was poured.
Regardless of your foundation type, damage to your home’s foundation can occur over time for a variety of reasons. Oklahoma’s weather, climate and clay-rich soil make for especially problematic foundation settlement challenges, but Oklahoma Foundation Repair is well-versed in tackling and overcoming these obstacles.
