3 Tips When Choosing the Right House Foundation Specialist

Updated: Aug 23, 2021

Choosing the right person to fix the foundations of your home is a daunting task. The impact of poor quality workmanship can cause issues with virtually any aspect of your home. Whether that be walls, doors and windows and believe it or nor plumbing and electrical work can all be impacted adversely.

It is heart breaking when I am called out to a family home and I am asked to rectify previous work that was not done properly. To avoid this, here are three simple tips to ensure you get the right job done first time.


Tip 1: How Long Have they Been In Business

Fly by night organisations can appear and disappear in all industries. Make sure that the company you have fix your foundations have a long history as this is an excellent sign that they will be around for many years to come.


Tip 2: Do They Have Great References

Find out what others are saying about their service and what rankings do they have on various sites.

Nothing speaks more volumes than previous customers.


Tip 3: Accreditations and Warranties

Ask to see their Master Builders and other certifications and ask to see their warranty in writing.

Quality businesses will easily be able to provide both and provides a high level of confidence of their craftsmanship and quality of work along with support in the unlikely event something does need to be rectified.
