Why Should I Fix My Foundation?

At Mission Home Services, we strongly recommend fixing any foundation repair problems for the following reasons:

  • The problem will get worse: A foundation problem never gets better on its own. As it gets worse, the problem will cost more to fix.
  • Resale value: Who wants to buy a house with a foundation problem? Nobody!
  • Appearance: Foundation problems often cause ugly cracks — not only in the foundation itself but also inside the home.
  • Door and window operation: As your foundation fails to hold the structure in place, your house will bend and twist. This will cause doors and windows to stick and jam.
  • Use of space: Sometimes you can lose the use of your space because of foundation failure. That’s not what you paid for when you bought your home!
  • A safer home: It’s unusual, but disasters like foundations collapsing, chunks of brick veneer falling off the house, and other serious safety hazards do emerge.
  • Keep pests away: Insects and animals can get into your home through cracks in the foundation, becoming unwanted and uninvited guests.

Having Foundation Issues?

Foundation Repair

Foundation problems can cause a real headache. No homeowner wants to see bowing walls or cracks in their foundation. But without the proper repairs, foundation issues can impact your home’s safety, appearance, and value.

Need a New Support System?

Crawl Space Repair

Your crawl space needs solid mid-span support that’s usually provided by a post and beam assembly. As time goes on, wooden posts rot, shift, or settle. This causes sagging floor joists along with other structural problems. Don’t live with an uneven or sinking crawl space.

“From the very beginning of the transaction, Dave, the owner was honest, upfront and professional in his interactions with me. I am more than pleased with the work but more importantly, his values instilled in me a sense of confidence in small business owners who still believe in doing what is right for customers and providing outstanding customer service. I HIGHLY recommend Mission Home Services!”

“Dave was super responsive and went above and beyond in getting my basement project completed. He kept in regular contact with me on updates to the project, expected delivery of materials, and on permitting status. Very reliable and did a terrific job on my basement retaining wall.”

“First of all, I don’t usually do reviews; however, I was so impressed with the guys at Mission Home Services that I felt the need to let others know. We had them out to inspect our basement and give us an estimate on waterproofing it for future renovations. The representatives gave us a great education on not only how a basement leaks, but also how ours was leaking and the correct method to fix it. We highly recommend this company!”
