Have you noticed a foundation crack on your home? If it doesn’t look to major, you probably figure you can pick up a DIY kit at Home Depot and call it a day. This “quick fix” could actually make the problem much worse. Here is why you should always call the foundation repair team at Lucas Contracting to resolve all of your foundation issues:
Where’s the Source?
Just because there is an obvious external crack doesn’t mean that’s the only problem. It could be a symptom, not the cause. Your DIY fix might only be a Band-Aid solution at best while the source continues to threaten your home. Our foundation repair experts know what to look for and can identify and fix the source problem, not just symptoms.
Equipment & Tools
You can spend a lot of money on tools and equipment that you’ll never use again, yet it still doesn’t compare to the professional equipment at the disposal of our foundation repair team. We have the equipment to get your foundation repair done right the first time.
Cause Further Damage
If you aren’t particularly handy, you might just waste your time and money trying to fix a foundation problem on your own. Even worse, you could actually cause further damage if you don’t know what you’re doing. Instead of putting your foundation and home at risk, call our foundation repair team to fix the problem right away.
If you don’t have experience or proper safety equipment and try to repair your foundation on your own, you could end up hurting yourself. Anything from a stubbed finger to electrocution to far worse if you cause a support beam to collapse or wall to cave. Protect your personal safety and trust the experts instead.
Time to Sell
Should you decide to sell your home in the future, you’ll regret your decision to take a DIY approach. Not only is your work probably sloppy, but it isn’t covered by warranty. The buyer will ask questions, and you won’t be able to give a convincing answer about the quality of the work. When you choose foundation repair from Lucas Contracting, our work is guaranteed and you’ll be proud to tell prospective buyers about the quality of the repair.
If you have a foundation crack, don’t put the integrity of your home at risk with a DIY fix. Turn to the experts at Lucas Contracting and get it done right.
