The Foundation Repair Contractor That Sandy Springs, GA, Residents Trust
If you’ve discovered cracks in your home’s foundation, or if there is water leaking into your basement through the walls or floor, it’s time to call a foundation repair contractor. While they may not seem like major issues in and of themselves, foundation cracks and wet basements can be indicators of larger structural problems and should be addressed sooner rather than later. Since 2006, Engineered Solutions of Georgia has provided reliable foundation repair services to homeowners throughout the Sandy Springs area. We’ve earned a number of industry awards for our first-rate craftsmanship and proudly maintain an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

That’s why we’ll always provide a thorough inspection of your foundation, basement, or crawl space, and give you an honest assessment of what we find. If your home requires foundation repairs, we’ll work with you to find the best long-term solution to your individual situation. Conversely, if there aren’t any underlying issues with your foundation, we have no problem telling you that. After all, we’re in this business to provide solutions, not to sell products.

How Long Does It Take to Repair a Foundation?
Typically, most residential foundation repairs can be completed in as little as two to three days. However, there are some variables, such as deep foundation footings, that may cause a job to take longer. Keep in mind that foundation repair is a catchall term that can apply to everything from filling cracks 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 that your foundation needs a repair, it’s important to contact a structural engineer or foundation repair contractor like ESOG as soon as possible, as foundation damage that is left unaddressed can cause significant structural damage to your home and may pose a safety risk for you and your family.
Is Foundation Repair Tax Deductible?
While home upgrades may be tax-deductible, repairs usually are not, which means you won’t be able to deduct the cost of your foundation repair from your taxes. However, foundation repair may be tax-deductible if you run a business out of your home and use a portion of your home as an office exclusively for the business. In a case like that, you may qualify for a home office deduction. Similarly, if you rent out a portion of your home, you may be allowed to deduct a portion of the foundation repair cost.
