How Long Does it Take to Repair a Foundation?
There are a number of different ways to repair a foundation, depending on the extent of the damage and the condition of the soil structures that the home sits atop. Generally speaking, most residential foundation repair projects can be completed in as little as two to three days. However, there are some variables which may cause a job to take longer, such as deep foundation footings, which will require more excavation to prepare the areas for installation and more restoration after the piles or piers are installed.
Foundation repair is a catchall term that can apply to everything from filling cracks with a caulk-like material to using heavy machinery such as hydraulic jacks to bring a foundation slab back up to a level position. While the former project may take just a few hours to complete, the latter could take up to a week or more depending on the extent of the foundation damage. If you believe you are in need of foundation repair, it’s important to contact a structural engineer or foundation repair company as soon as possible, as foundation damage that is left unaddressed can cause significant structural damage to your home and possibly pose a safety risk for you and your family.
