in most places. The moisture content of the soil will cause it
to expand and contract depending on the water level. This causes
undue stress on foundations of buildings and homes. It also
contains what many refer to as Houston Black Heiden which is
deep and varyies from almost level to deepy sloping. There is a
wide range of soil levels in Arlington, TX.

Caution When Choosing a Foundation Repair Company Arlington:
• Be wary of the company
that uses their own engineer to diagnose your house, and
don’t be surprised if the engineer recommends that same
company to do the repair or even a special type pier that only
that company can do. I’m serious….they are out there. We are
more than glad to refer you to several engineers, but rest
assured, you ultimately have the choice as to who you use.
Arlington Foundation companies that “commingle” with structural
engineers may have an extreme conflict of interest.
• Beware of poured
concrete footers. This is a term foundation professionals
are aware of. Ask us about them when you call, we’ll be glad
to give you our opinion. We hate to see homeowners pay for the
same repair twice.
• Beware of many extra
fees, such as marked up engineer reports (See bullet #1),
or marked up plumbing tests. We have no cost for our
post-plumbing leaks tests, so neither do you. It’s only fair.
Does the other company coming out have a bunch of extra fees?
• Be wary of a price per
pier in excess of $400. Although some areas require deeper
depths to achieve “Absolute Refusal”, this is not common.
Also, when getting multiple bids, compare the number of piers
and pier placement of the different companies. Be wary of any
company that suggests extra piers without a very good reason.
• If the estimator is not
equipped with the proper tools, i.e. a CompuLevel or ZipLevel,
then send them packing. Sorry folks, but a marble, tennis
ball, bubble level, or “experience” won’t do the trick. You
need the proper tools to give a proper estimate.
We pride ourselves on educating our
customers. Our goal is to make sure that every
customer understands the cause of their foundation problems,
and knows exactly what we're going to do to fix them. We want
to exceed the expectations of all of our customers, as a large
portion of our business comes from referrals.
