If your foundation is damaged, it’s important to take action quickly to prevent the damage from getting worse. While there are too many variables to pinpoint an actual cost estimate, here’s a closer look at some of the more common factors that can affect foundation repair cost.

Average Foundation Repair Costs in Edmonton

The average cost of foundation repair can range depending on the extent of the damage and the type of repair that’s needed. In Edmonton, our cold climate and extremes in temperature can impact foundations, therefore the average cost of addressing foundation issues spans a diverse range. There may be only minor cracks which might only require simple sealing. However, more substantial problems like shifting or settling foundations could necessitate more intricate solutions leading to costs in the thousands. Until you start digging you’ll never get a clear picture of what’s going to be involved.

Permanent solutions like basement waterproofing and excavation are longer-lasting solutions and better than temporary fixes.

How to Tell if Your Foundation Needs Repairing

Look for signs of damage, such as cracks in the foundation, sloping or heaving floors, and water leaks or damage. You may also notice signs inside your home, like bowing walls and warped ceilings.

Factors That Affect Foundation Repair Costs

When it comes to estimating costs for foundation repair, it’s important to recognize the multitude of factors at play. From soil conditions to structural issues, there’s a myriad of variables that can influence the final cost. However, until you have a foundation repair expert look at your property, it’s challenging to accurately predict these costs due to the unpredictable nature of the project. Some more common factors include:

  • the type and extent of damage, 
  • the type of foundation that’s damaged, and how easy or difficult it is to access the foundation,
  • soil type and condition, 
  • cost of materials, 
  • age of property, and
  • unexpected additional repairs. 

Pros and Cons of Doing it Yourself vs Hiring a Professional

While DIY repairs may cost less, a lack of expertise could lead to low-quality repairs that require additional fixing (and more money) down the road. Doing foundation repairs yourself also comes with safety risks, takes lots of time and effort, and doesn’t come with a warranty.

When you hire a professional, you can find someone who has the expertise to perform repairs correctly. Professionals also typically offer warranties and guarantees as well as insurance and liability protection, and they save you time and energy. However, be sure to hire someone reputable and be aware of scams.
