You’re no doubt familiar with the eternal question of price vs quality. Would you rather save as much money as possible, or spend more to get the best work done? In theory, answering that question seems easy. Of course, you want the product or service with the best quality, no matter how much it costs.
Realistically it isn’t always that easy. Budget constraints and monetary worries can often prevent you from choosing the best-quality product or service, especially if the price difference goes into the triple or quadruple digits. So when it comes to foundation repair, what should matter most to you?
Quality is King
You probably won’t be surprised to hear that when it comes to foundation repair, quality is absolutely crucial. Think about it: your foundation literally holds up your home, ensuring that you can sleep at night without having to worry about your walls or ceilings caving in. As a result, going with the cheapest option is almost never a good idea – especially because it can actually become more crucial.
To explain what we mean, allow us to give you a hypothetical example. Say you notice cracks in your foundation, or any other sign that foundation repair may be in order. You don’t have much money saved up, so you go with the cheapest option of getting your foundation repaired. Everything goes well – until the same signs start to reappear. As it turns out, the cheap price led to a simple lipstick repair that didn’t truly fix the issue at its root cause.
All of a sudden, you’re back at the beginning – needing to pay more money just to get a problem fixed that you thought you had already addressed.
That’s why emphasizing quality matters tremendously in foundation repair. Your foundation is a crucial part of your home, and not the place to try to save money in the short term. Doing so can lead to more expenses and troubles in the long run.
Price Can Matter
That being said, of course price matters, but not as the first priority. Instead of going with the cheapest option available, you’ll want to make sure that you choose a company that offers you the best possible quality for a fair price. For comparison, here’s a bell curve that shows you what most foundation repair costs in your area.
Of course, it’s important to remember that no two foundation projects are the same. If you’re in need of major repairs, you may very well find yourself on the right end of that bell curve, spending more than the $4,403 average cost mentioned in the article above.
That’s no reason to panic – but at this point, it may be good to contact multiple foundation repair companies for quotes, read reviews of their work online, and have them visit and inspect your foundation to get a good idea of the ideal balance between quality and price.
