Should A Foundation Repair Company Inspect My Foundation?

Only a Professional Licensed By the State of Texas Should Inspect Your Foundation

Some foundation repairs are unwarranted and some engineers even consider most repairs a scam.

Houston, we have a problem. Our expansive soils and extreme climate create conducive conditions for foundation movement. Indications of foundation movement can be seen in the cracking of interior walls, exterior walls, floors, foundation slab, sloping floors or doors that just won’t close properly. And to make matters worse, some foundation repair companies take advantage of these scary indicators.

Some Foundation Repairs Are Unwarranted

A large amount of the foundation repairs performed are unwarranted and some engineers even consider most repairs a scam. Underpinning the foundation is largely ineffective and can potentially have negative long-term effects. This is not just our opinion, but also the opinion of many, if not the vast majority of, independent engineers.

You Need an Unbiased Licenced Professional

Foundation companies are in the business of selling foundation repair, not giving an unbiased opinion. Don’t make the costly mistake of getting a “free” foundation inspection from a foundation repair company. Imperial Pro offers the value of our UNBIASED industry-leading foundation inspections that our clients trust.
