What to Look for When Researching Foundation Repair Companies
It didn’t seem like a big deal when you first started noticing small cracks in the foundation of your home. All structures show signs of aging eventually and you might have assumed this was only a cosmetic concern. Over time, you began to notice other issues such as a concrete foundation starting to crumble, additional space between concrete blocks, the doors of your home not shutting properly, or bulges in the floor. It was at this point that you knew you couldn’t put off working with foundation repair companies any longer.
Where to Start When Researching Foundation Repair Companies
We recommend that you spend some time on a foundation company’s website before you consider working with it. A quality business will have a robust website that provides detailed information about the types of services it provides, its products, and feedback and endorsements it has received. When you visit the home page of Atlas Piers, Inc. of Atlanta, you will notice that we have broken down our services into commercial and residential. Just hover over the subheading of each to see a drop-down menu of all residential and commercial services.
Quality of Piers
The physical foundation of your home or business is only as strong as the piers that support it. The foundation repair experts at Atlas Piers use piers and pile capacities that support a minimum of 40,000 pounds all the way up to 200,000 pounds. We choose to work with suppliers that offer the strongest and highest quality foundation support products available within the industry.
Make Sure the Business is a Foundation Repair Expert
It can be somewhat misleading for a business to advertise itself under the category of foundation repair companies when it only does that type of work on the side. However, this is common among our competitors that primarily work with water issues. Atlas Piers is a foundation expert, and foundation repair is our main business. All of our field staff are full-time certified professionals. We are proud of the reputation we have built for producing quality, error-free work in the more than 30 years we have been in business.
Memberships in Professional Organizations
The willingness of an industry organization or consumer group to put its name on the line for foundation repair companies is a good indicator of its overall reputation. Atlas Piers is pleased to have strong backing from the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List. We also belong to The Associated General Contractors of America, Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc., and Associated General Contractors of Georgia.
Company and Contractor Experience
When you consider that the work foundation repair companies perform literally supports your home or business, it’s easy to understand why experience is so important. Hiring a company that repairs foundations as a sideline or that has not yet proven its quality can have significant consequences. Atlas Piers has served Atlanta and the surrounding communities since 1987. We have worked hard to earn our reputation as a premier foundation contractor as well as underpinning and shoring specialist. Additionally, our field technicians have more than 100 years of combined experience.
