Frequently Asked Foundation
1. What is the best foundation repair system?
In the majority of Dallas foundation repairs, Pressed, concrete piers
provide the best combination of quality and price. When properly
installed, Concrete piers will provide a lifetime solution to your
problem at a reasonable cost.
2. How long can I put off fixing the foundation?
Once a foundation begins to fail, it requires immediate attention.
The amount of collateral damage, i.e. cosmetic painting, plumbing,
framing that the house experiences is directly related to the amount
of time the foundation is allowed to go un-repaired.
3. Will this affect my ability to sell my house?
Honestly, this is a matter of opinion. However, our experience has
found a couple of major issues that should make you feel better,
• If one house in the neighborhood needs repair, chance are that
many houses in the neighborhood need repair. So, if you were going
to purchase a house in your neighborhood, which would you rather
buy? I, personally, would rather buy the house that has had the
foundation repaired and that comes with a LIFETIME, TRANSFERABLE
WARRANTY, so that I know I never have to worry about it….. use the
repair as a selling point of your home.
• Most homes in Dallas will eventually need repair work done,
especially if they are in certain locations of expansive clay soil.
4. What will happen to my plants during the repair?
1st Choice Foundation Repair will treat your home as if it were our
own. We will first of all recommend a repair strategy that minimizes
the removal of beautiful plants and shrubs that you have spent so
much time growing. Those areas that can’t be avoided will be treated
with the utmost care. We will do our best to replant the items
exactly where we found them and handle them delicately to improve
their chance for survival. Remember, most repairs only take 1-2
days, so the survival rate of vegetation is actually quite high.
5. How inconvenient will this be for me while you are working?
We certainly want to keep any inconvenience to a minimum. We finish
most repairs the same day. Our crews will respect the cleanliness of
your home both inside and out. In most cases, homeowners remain in
the house during the foundation repair and don’t find it anymore convenient
than when someone comes to do any other work around the house.
6. How do I know I’m getting a good or even fair deal on the foundation repair
There is no short answer to this, but please allow us to make

ALWAYS require a LIFETIME, TRANSFERABLE WARRANTY.
7. Why do some foundation repair companies charge so much more or suggest so many more
piers than others?
That is a great question. Probably the best answer is to share with
you the best way to avoid “price traps” like these. First, don’t pay
premium dollars just because a pro athlete is endorsing the company.
They are paid promoters, and you may not even like the team they
played for! Second, get multiple bids to protect yourself and allow
for more comparison. Finally, if there is a huge difference in the
work proposed by foundation repair companies, hire an independent,
structural engineer to provide their recommendation. Whatever you
do, don’t allow someone to base the price of your foundation repair
on the zip code you live in or the car you drive!
