We realize you have many choices in foundation repair companies. We try to keep it simple, affordable, honest, and to the point. Our goal is to offer the most dependable foundation repair services in Houston, TX.
There are many names for the types of piers used to lift and re-level your home. We utilize a pressure pile, hydraulically-driven friction pier. It’s driven to the maximum depth obtainable to ensure strength against future movement.
We feel strongly that this is the strongest, no-gimmick option on the market. Other companies may try to sell you more expensive options in piers. At Honesty Foundation, we warranty the pier—we’re confident in this system, and we rarely have to provide warranty work on piers we have previously installed.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Expanding and contracting soils, tree roots close to the foundation, droughts, and heavy rains—these are all issues that create movement and can directly affect your home’s foundation. Visible signs of foundation movement include cracks in the exterior brick or siding, separations around window and door frames, doors that are sticking, or have large gaps around door reveals, sloping floors, etc. These are all indications of movement, yet this does not always mean foundation repair is needed. We can do an evaluation for you, shoot some elevations around your home, and recommend options if your foundation needs repair. We can also discuss a prevention plan and suggest items that may help your situation, such as placing soaker hoses around your home’s perimeter for consistent moisture content or installing root barriers if your trees are becoming an issue.
There are many pieces to the puzzle when determining if you need house leveling. We will begin with an examination of the exterior and interior of the home, looking for cracks in the walls or around windows and doors. We’ll also determine if the doors are sticking and if there are separations in the brick or siding. We will also use a digital level throughout your home to take elevations. This provides us with a visual tool to help you see if/where settlement has occurred in your home. We will draw your home up with elevations and suggest pier locations if needed.
