Foundation Repair Inspections are usually done within two weeks. This Georgetown homeowner will receive a diagram showing elevation readings of the slab.

We can usually provide a Free Foundation Inspection within 2 weeks.  However, during hot, dry weather the waiting list may be 6 weeks.

A concrete slab that is cracked down the middle will probably need support piers around the perimeter of the house.

This Georgetown home will probably require support piers (Bell Bottom Piers) around the entire perimeter of the house before it can be leveled.  This condition, “cracked through the middle”, is more common than  you may think.
