Free Foundation Inspections? What’s the Catch? 

Can you really get a free foundation inspection? There must be some kind of catch, right?

Although most service businesses don’t offer much of anything for free these days, reputable foundation repair contractors often don’t charge a fee for performing structural assessments and repair estimates. 

When you schedule a foundation inspection with Atlas Piers, you can trust that it will come with no strings attached.

Why Do We Offer Free Foundation Inspections?

Foundation repair contractors are trying to earn a living, just like everyone. So why would we give away our services for free?

We offer this valuable service to homeowners at no cost because we know that you have many concrete repair contractors to choose from in the Intermountain West and we would like the opportunity to show you what we can do.

Because we have a variety of repair methods available to us – such as helical piers, resistance and tiebacks – we take the time to explain your options and which method(s) we recommend for your foundation settling.

At Atlas Piers, we are committed to helping potential customers make fully-informed decisions, which is why we take the time to discuss our findings and answer your questions.

How Do We Estimate Foundation Repair Costs?

Professional contractors consider a number of factors when estimating a project’s cost.

Your property’s terrain, slope and soil conditions can affect the total price, as can the type of foundation construction you have, the materials used and the history of the site. Hidden obstacles, like tree roots or deep footings, may also contribute to the cost. The price is also likely to be higher if supporting piers or critical components were omitted during construction.

Our estimate will also factor in any other necessary project expenses, such as a building permit, a soil report from a geotechnical engineer or an evaluation from a structural engineer.

Moving Forward with Your Foundation Repair

If you choose to move ahead with your foundation repair, Atlas Piers will use the project estimate as the basis of your service contract with us. Of course, before you sign on the dotted line, you’ll have a chance to ask questions and request clarification. We want you to feel comfortable before you make the decision to hire our team.

Once you give us the go-ahead, we typically request a financial commitment. But, don’t worry if you don’t have enough cash to cover the cost. We’ll work with you to find a way to pay for your repair project. 

Our professional contractors can explain all of your financing options. A home equity loan or line of credit might be your best bet, or you may be eligible for a government-backed home improvement loan. For some homeowners, a personal bank loan or unsecured, interest-free credit card is the answer. Rest assured, we’ll work to make sure that foundation repair is affordable.

Atlas Piers offers complimentary, no-pressure structural assessments and foundation repair estimates to homeowners and businesses throughout Utah, Nevada and Wyoming. Contact us to schedule your free foundation inspection today.
