Are you looking to sell your home? If you answered yes, then there’s one thing you need to remember. What you see on the outside reflects the inside of your house.
No, we don’t mean that buyers will have x-ray vision. More often than not, any damage or other issues that appear on your home’s exterior could have more underlying problems that no buyer would ever want to deal with. One such issue that is a definite red flag would be foundation problems, as it poses a risk to the appearance, value, and security of your home.
You don’t have to say goodbye to all potential buyers if your home does have foundation issues. All you need to do is give us a call, just like our client below!
Foundation Repair Project in McKinney TX
A McKinney homeowner was getting ready to sell their home, but there were several issues that would have prevented a smooth transaction. One such issue was the large expansion joint separation on the side of their house. They wanted to solve the problem so they could make a successful sale, but they also didn't want to pump a ton of money into the house right before selling it!
Using state-of-the-art elevation tools, our team made a thorough inspection of their home. We were able to pinpoint the exact problem area, which was along the front perimeter of the home. This way, they wouldn't have to overpay for the repairs.
Based on the findings of our expert team, the best, most cost-effective solution would be installing a solid concrete pressed piling called a PT1 system! We installed 11 piers under the problem area of the foundation, making sure to drive them down to the restrictive clay layer that would provide better support for the home above it.
After one day, the piers were installed, and we were able to lift the front of the home back to its original place. Doing so also closed all the cosmetic separations. We were able to solve their foundation problems AND improve the appearance of their home all in one go WITHOUT disturbing their exterior landscaping too much!
Plus, we were able to provide our client with the plumbing tests, engineering reports, and permits they needed for their seller's disclosure. Quite a stress-free experience for our customer!
Remember, any problems with your home’s foundation could affect your sales transactions. If you want to successfully sell your house, give our professionals a call or text at 214-326-0718.
