How Much Does Foundation Repair Cost?

While foundation repair can be costly, it is a necessary service to protect your home from instability.

Ignoring signs of foundation damage can end up costing you much more as the problem worsens. The cost of foundation repair depends on the extent of damage and the size of your foundation.

The type of foundation you have—a basement, crawl space, or slab foundation—also affects the repairs these foundations need and the cost.  

At Groundworks, we offer various solutions to fix your foundation. Watch this video for helpful insight.

Why Should You Invest in Foundation Repair Early?

Foundation repair becomes more costly the longer it is delayed. A small crack in your drywall may seem harmless, but it indicates that your foundation is experiencing negative changes, such as settling into the ground around your home.
