How Much Does Foundation Repair Cost?

In 2012, the United States experienced one of the worst, most prolonged droughts on record. At one point, drought conditions covered states from Delaware to California, destroying crops and causing significant foundation damage as dry soil shrank away from homes.

A homeowner who had first noticed signs of foundation damage in 2011 estimated his repair bill would be close to $50,000 for 2012’s drought-related damage because his sidewalks, driveway and landscaping would have to be replaced.

Foundation problems often lead to other issues around and within your home. That’s why it’s important to catch foundation problems quickly and repair them before other damage occurs. A problem that might cost $1,000 to fix today could become a $5,000 repair job if you wait too long to address it.

Typical costs
On average, basic foundation repair services range from about $3,000 to $6,000, depending on the size of the problem and property. Some homeowners may be pleasantly surprised after an assessment reveals that an extensive repair job is not necessary. Some homes may simply need preventive foundation maintenance, which could cost between $500 and $3,000. Any company inspecting your foundation should offer you a free estimate, as well as a warranty for any work performed.

Insurance coverage
While insurance may cover foundation damage that results from an earthquake, flood or other single event, drought-related foundation damage is often not covered by insurance. However, you may be able to work with companies to finance repair work.
