Is it Safe to Live in a House with Foundation Issues
While serious foundation repairs can be costly, most residential foundation cracks and home levelling services only cost between $3,000 – $10,000 and can be quite worth the investment in an otherwise great property.
Is the house you’re looking at buying sinking down a major hill?
If yes, then you should definitely look at having a structural engineer approved evaluator take a look before you think any further of buying a home.
But, since we’re talking about Northeast Texas in the Dallas / Fort Worth area, most homes aren’t built on steep slopes. This is good news, because most of these homes ARE worth investing a few thousand dollars into for foundation repairs.
Foundation Issues in Old Homes
It’s expected that the likelihood of foundation damage will rise with the age of the home. Because of this, it’s easier to ask for a lower price than the seller initially offers.
At what point is a home considered old? We believe that a home over 25 years old is considered old and you can begin to expect to see more structural problems including cracks, sloping floors, etc.
Not only does the ground shift slowly over time, but things like termites, mold, and general wear and tear overlooked and more likely to exist in a house.
