Preparing a Home for Selling with Foundation Repairs in Carrollton

Our homes should be a place of comfort and shelter, and not a cause of worry about your family’s safety. Sometimes, you simply outgrow it and would happily sell it to someone who wants it, but buyers look for the same qualities in a home.

Any sign of a problem or issue with your home can affect its value. That’s the situation our client in Carrollton found themselves in. They were getting ready to put the house up on the market, but they noticed some cracks, slopes, and some doors not closing properly.

That’s when they called us for help… They’re ready to leave this home and didn’t want to put too much money into it before selling it, so we came up with a solution that would fix the problem and also accommodate their situation.

Installing Piers to Lift and Stabilize a Home in Carrollton

Upon inspection, we found out that the cause of the issues our client noticed was a combination of a tree being too close to the foundation, severe erosion, and a plumbing leak in one bathroom.

We isolated the area that needed to be repaired, so our clients wouldn’t have to put too much into the project, but still get the issues fixed.

We installed piers around this particular corner of the house to lift and stabilize it. However, we figured it wouldn’t be enough because based on the measurement, the damage patterns penetrated far into the home and interior piers would need to be installed.

Apart from having the floors be taken up and putting up floor and door protection and plastic to protect our client’s furniture, we didn’t encounter many drawbacks on this project.

When we were done, the issues were resolved. Prominently, the doors closed much more seamlessly.

As the project finished, our clients’ home value increased and they were pleased about not having to shell out so much more for a home they’ve already outgrown.
