Get Peace of Mind with a Foundation Inspection from Lone Star Foundation Repair

If you suspect that you have a foundation problem, a foundation inspection performed by a certified foundation repair specialist can help you understand the extent of the damage–if any.

The team at Lone Star Foundation Repair understands that this can be a stressful time. Waiting for your inspection can create a lot of anxiety.

But here’s what you can expect at your foundation inspection appointment.

The Foundation Inspection Process

Throughout your inspection, a Lone Star Foundation repair specialist will measure around your home using specialized measuring instruments.

These devices are known as a Zip Level, and your foundation repair specialist will use it to take measurements that determine how level–or unlevel–your floors are.

The foundation inspection professional places the Zip Level’s base unit in the center of the room. Attached to the base unit is a hand-held measurement module, and they’ll move around the room taking measurements of the floor.

After taking all of these measurements, they’ll collect the data and begin writing the inspection report.

Understanding Your Home’s Foundation Inspection Report

After collecting measurements from your home, Lone Star Foundation Repair will begin preparing an in-depth report that shows you the elevation of your floor in every room of your house.

Your inspection report will include an approximate schematic of your home, with elevations for each room.

Should you need foundation repairs, we’ll also present you with options about how best to move forward, including the potential location for new piers.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a foundation inspection take?

For a standard home, a foundation inspection can take as little as 30 minutes. For larger homes, it may take upwards of an hour and a half.

When should I get a foundation inspection?

There are really three times you should schedule a foundation inspection:

  • When you buy a home
  • Before you sell a home
  • When you notice indicators of foundation damage

Getting a foundation inspection is important during transactions, especially if you’re buying. Taking the time to have a foundation inspector take a look at your potential new home can save you a lot of headaches later.

If you notice stairstep cracks in brick or other telltale signs of foundation problems, you should get an inspection as soon as possible.

Do manufactured homes need a foundation inspection?

Foundation inspections are especially important for manufactured homes. Because these homes are installed–and sometimes by professionals who haven’t installed many manufactured homes–foundation problems are common.

A foundation problem on a manufactured home is especially devastating. If you live in or are buying a manufactured home, you’ll have an easier time if you schedule a home inspection.

Will a home inspector inspect the foundation?

Home inspectors will often examine your home’s foundation. They’ll be able to identify any of the potential signs of foundation damage, but they aren’t able to perform a full foundation inspection.

If you’re buying a home, make sure to get a foundation inspection from a certified foundation repair specialist.
