Secretary Foundation Repair Cost

Like most things you care about it is hard to get reliable information on the internet.  And when faced with a foundation problem people in Secretary have one question – “how much does foundation repair cost?”

While I can’t answer that fully here- I can give some information that may prove helpful.

Secretary Foundation Repair

Foundation work can range in price from as low as $200 (for very minor issues) to tens of thousands of dollars for major foundation repairs in Secretary.  We have seen work at well over $40,000.  However, most residential work is far lower than that.

Here is a breakdown of possible costs:

  • $200-$2,500 for a structural engineer
  • $300-$4,500 for soil reports
  • $75-$450 for a building permit
  • $3,000-$6,000 for seismic work (not an issue for Secretary)
  • $1,000-$3,500 for hidden problems (surprise fee)
  • $1,200 per pier

 

While there is no ‘typical foundation repair’ we often see projects for an average sized home from between $8,000 – $15,000.  If the damage was caused by flooding from household plumbing it is possible that insurance will cover some or all of the necessary work.
