Consider asking these questions when looking for a contractor to repair any damage on a foundation. If you cannot find an answer on the company’s website, ask the contractor to get the answers before the project is underway. 

How much does the contractor charge for an estimate? 

Check with the contractor when setting up the appointment about how much the estimate will cost. At WTX Foundation Repair, we provide you with a free inspection and assessment to know what will be happening every step of the way.  

Does the company employ day laborers or subcontractors to do the work on the home? 

Experience is vital in a specialized trade like foundation repair. We are an expert team of foundation repair professionals, so you can be sure any repairs that need to be done will be done the first time correctly. 

Does the company have liability insurance and workers’ compensation insurance on the actual workers? 

Make sure a company has both liability and workers’ compensation insurance for the client’s protection. Some companies will say that Texas doesn’t require workers’ compensation or that you are covered under their liability insurance to avoid paying costly insurance premiums. This can put a customer at risk. So, make sure to hire a company that carries the proper insurance.  

Does the company offer a warranty? 

Read the fine print regarding the warranty. Are the terms of the contract clear? Is it quantitative or subjective to be determined at the contractor’s discretion? WTX Foundation Repair offers a lifetime warranty on our work because we believe in what we do, and we want you to get the best possible service even after years. 

How much experience does the contractor have? 

Justin Shepherd is the owner of WTX Foundation Repair and has over 20 years of experience in construction as a contractor. 

What payment methods are available? 

It is good to know what the payment expectations are and what transaction methods are available. WTX Foundation Repair accepts all major credit cards. If you need help with financing, we’ve got you covered. Make paying for your home’s foundation repair a breeze.
