Houses with pier and beam foundations are extremely common in Texas. In a house that is built on a pier and beam foundation, the floors rest on wooden beams. These beams, in turn, are braced by supports—which can be made of pre-made concrete blocks, poured concrete, or wood. If you need to adjust the level of a floor because of a shifting foundation, you may need to replace rotten wood, replace supports or simply replace or add additional steel shims. Occasionally, the structure will need to be excavated to provide necessary access.

If you’ve noticed cracks in your foundation or any other underlying issues with the structure of your home, you may be wondering if you need foundation repair. Here are some of the questions we commonly hear at Structured Foundation Repairs.
How much does foundation repair cost?
Every foundation repair job begins with a free evaluation and estimate. When you contact Structured Foundation Repairs, we will send an estimator to your home to conduct a comprehensive inspection. During that inspection, the estimator will do a visual survey of your home and take an electronic elevation survey. Finally, the estimator will determine what your home’s vulnerabilities are and what specific steps will be required to correct them.
How long does foundation repair take?
Every foundation repair job is different, but a typical foundation repair job will take from one to two days. However, the length of time your specific foundation repair job will take depends on the extent of the work that needs to be done.
Will foundation repair harm my yard?
Structured Foundation Repair works to keep any damage to your home’s landscape to a minimum. If we need to remove a bush in order to perform a job, we will make every effort to keep it alive so it can be returned to its original place, but the company cannot guarantee its survival.
Will foundation repair fix all the cracks in my foundation?
Repairing your foundation will not necessarily close up all visible cracks. However, not all cracks are cause for concern. If you are worried about a specific crack, talk to your foundation repair team.
Will foundation repair affect my plumbing?
Foundation repairs and plumbing issues go hand in hand. At Structured Foundation Repair, we recommend that you have your plumbing tested by our recommended third party plumber either before and after we perform a foundation repair job and in many cases we include the post testing in the cost of foundation repairs.
