The education, training, and experience level of foundation repair contractors can vary greatly. There is no state issued license, similar to what is required for electricians, plumbers, and other technical trades. Consequently, there are no restrictions to individuals with little or no experience starting a foundation repair company. These unqualified contractors can actually cause more damage to your foundation than if you did nothing at all. When warranty issues arise, oftentimes these contractors are out of business, leaving homeowners to find new contractors to fix it again, and at additional costs.
The National Foundation Repair Association has addressed this problematic issue by implementing a certification program that identifies contractors who are actually qualified to repair foundations.
The title awarded to qualified foundation repair contractors is:
As you schedule inspections for your property, ask the contractor if he or she is a CFRS. Your home is your most valuable asset. Don’t trust it to contractors who are inexperienced and unqualified. Remember that the Lifetime Transferable Warranty is only as good as the company standing behind it.
