It’s best not to delay repairs once the damage is identified. The longer you wait, the more likely it is that the required repairs will become more extensive (and expensive).

The majority of foundation repairs require one to three days to complete. Before starting work, our team will tell you how long we estimate the project to take. In most cases, you can stay in your home throughout the duration of the process.
Why Is Foundation Repair Needed?
Repairing your home’s foundation issues is vital because your home is only as stable as the foundation it sits on. You need foundation repair for 3 simple reasons:
1.) It Maintains Your Home’s Structural Integrity
If just one section of your foundation shows signs of stress, your whole home is at risk. Simply put, foundation repair will save your home from collapse.
2.) It Restores Value to Your Home
If you have a damaged foundation, the value of your home will decrease dramatically, but the price will reflect upon the fear foundation problems bring to buyers. Our foundation repair experts back their work up with long-term, transferable warranties, so homeowners like you can get the most out of selling their homes.
3.) Putting Repairs Off Will Cost More
Foundation repair costs increase as damage increases, and secondary problems will only compound the issue. Get ahead of the problems now, and you’ll save bundles.
Tips from Our Foundation Repair Experts
Here’s some quick tips from your trusted local foundation experts, collected over our 20-year legacy of repairing homes in Florida, that can help you protect your foundation:
6 Dos and Don’ts
- Keep an Eye Out For Signs of Damage
Take a stroll around your foundation at least once a year, and look for indications of foundation damage like cracks and bulging bricks. Look for insect trails or evidence pests have been digging near your foundation.
- Keep an Eye on Tree Roots
Not only do tree roots threaten the walls of your home, but they also remove hundreds of gallons of water from the soil, shrinking it and offering less support for your foundation during the hot summer months.
- Be Proactive (and Consistent) with Annual Maintenance
Keep up-to-date with regular maintenance, but also take steps to ensure that the moisture level in the soil around your foundation is consistent. If you do this, the soil won’t shrink and swell so dramatically. Evaluate your landscaping grade and water your grass during the dry season.
- Don’t Just Fill in Foundation Cracks
Patching a foundation crack with cement or epoxy is a temporary solution that won’t prevent future foundation damage. You need more thorough solutions.
- Don’t Always Walk Away From A House With Foundation Damage
We get it: buying a house with foundation damage can be too much of a hassle. But Alpha applies cutting-edge solutions in just a day or two, and foundation repair costs can be reasonably priced than you expect.
- Don’t Blame the Builder
When a homeowner finds a foundation problem, it’s easy to blame the builder. And while homebuilder’s can make mistakes, too, it’s more likely the fault of the soil around your home. Learn about how the soil impacts your foundation, so that you can make informed decisions about repair solutions.
