  • Thank you Regional Foundation Repair! They scheduled an appointment for last minute. Got a quick assessment and then after the technician (can't remember his name) explained the entire process to us in a way that felt very simple and straight forward. He was very honest and transparent with the repairs we needed. We found their estimate to be very reasonable compared to the other quotes we received. When the crew came out, they were very professional and explained their progress throughout the job. As expected, they cleaned up everything at the end of the day and the tech caught up with me to make sure the work was completed to my satisfaction. We had a lot of questions and they were very responsive. We've had an excellent experience with RegionalFoundationRepair from start to finish!

  • After a horrible experience on Yelp, I found this site and within minutes had quotes in hand. I scheduled my appointment and within 2 weeks the job was done below what I budgeted for. No more wet basement. Love it. Will recommend RegionalFoundation to friends and family.
    - Suja K.
  • Love these guys. They are professional, punctual, and saved me $1,000's explaining exactly what my foundation problem was and what I needed. Other companies were trying to sell me on the bells and whistles pushing services I didn't really need. These guys were transparent and the pricing for the job came out about $500 less then the other quotes.

  • Does Foundation Movement Affect Baton Rouge?

    As the capital city of Louisiana, Baton Rouge is rich with history. The former state capitol building resembles a castle and dates back to the Antebellum period. This city flourished due to its location along the banks of the Mississippi River, where you can find the USS Kidd, a retired destroyer that fought in World War II.

    If you’re one of the many homeowners in this gorgeous city, you probably worry about the foundation of your Baton Rouge home. All foundations experience some movement–for the most part, this movement is settling into the soil after the home is first built.

    The state of Louisiana has strict building codes in place to ensure your foundation is sturdy, while the City of Baton Rouge requires permits for most residential building projects.

    Baton Rouge is only a little over 150 miles from the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Each fall, the Gulf of Mexico braces itself for hurricanes or tropical storms.

    One of these storms can easily move your Baton Rouge home around on its foundation. After the winds, the flooding presents new challenges to your home’s foundation, including movement.

  • What Causes Foundation Problems in Baton Rouge?

    While no home is immune to settling and minor foundation movement, you worry about the serious problems that can affect your foundation. Here’s a look at some of the most common causes of these foundation problems in Baton Rouge:

    Storm Damage

    Each year in the fall, an average of 10 tropical storms whip around the Atlantic Ocean. Some of them make their way into the Gulf of Mexico. Out of those 10 storms, about 6 of them will reach winds fast enough to be upgraded to hurricanes.

    With wind speeds between 39-73 mph, a tropical storm can batter your Baton Rouge home; while hurricanes have wind gusts (between 74 mph to over 150 mph) that could potentially knock your home off its foundation.

    After the tropical storm passes, the flooding begins. Rushing and rising water can drown cars and severely damage your foundation. You may experience leaking or cracking in the concrete due to soil expansion in response to the moisture. After a storm, if you suspect that you have foundation damage, it’s essential that you have it evaluated by a professional team. The faster you act means the less additional damage occurs.

    Tree Roots

    Trees are constantly growing taller, competing with each other to get the most sunlight. They do this by expanding their root system to get more nourishment and grow higher. Tree roots are more than a nuisance; they can be downright menacing when it comes to expansion.

    The most commonly found trees in Baton Rouge include:

    • Bald Cypress
    • Blue Beech
    • Eastern Red Cedar
    • Flowering Dogwood
    • Green Ash
    • Live Oak Evergreen
    • Pecan

    The roots of these large, native trees in your Baton Rouge yard will grow under your concrete driveway or over your walkways, whichever offers the path of the least resistance. They’ll also burrow into any cracks or holes in your foundation. Once inside the foundation, they’ll continue exploiting the weaknesses and cause more damage.

    As you walk around your home, you might notice trees or roots that are close to your house’s foundation. Our team can come out and evaluate the situation, to easily determine if any of these pesky roots have made their way into your Baton Rouge home’s foundation.

    Hydrostatic Pressure

    Baton Rouge gets an average of 63 inches of rain each year. That’s a whopping 25 inches above the national average. In Baton Rouge, the average percent of daily humidity or water in the air is 74%.

    When all this water ends up in your soil, it can create hydrostatic pressure, causing the foundation of your Baton Rouge foundation to crumble or buckle. Typically, this starts out as minor damage and grows if left untreated.

  • What Are the Signs of Foundation Damage in Baton Rouge?

    With all the possible causes of damage, how do you know if there’s damage to the foundation of your home in Baton Rouge? After all, most of your foundation is covered by your home. Don’t worry; here’s what you should look out for:

    Standing Water

    Remember that high rainfall and humidity average? If you have foundation damage in your Baton Rouge home, you may also find standing water in your yard. It might just be a few puddles, but even small accumulations are indications that the soil is excessively moist, suggesting that it could be putting pressure on your foundation.

    The water in the soil may leak into your home through holes or cracks in your foundation. If there was a recent flooding event such as a tropical storm, you may find flooding inside your home or increased humidity. In that case, it’s a good idea to get our professionals to determine if you have damage.

    Visual Damage

    It’s always a good idea to walk around your property at least once a month, looking for signs of damage. This includes things such as dead trees, tree branches extending over your roof, and signs of visible damage to your foundation. Trees can extend over your home, creating damage to your roof and foundation.

    You may notice holes or cracks in the foundation of your home or places where it crumbles. Don’t wait until the next time you walk around the property to see if it has gotten worse or stayed the same.

    Any sign of visual damage can weaken your entire foundation or be the only sign you have of more severe damage lurking in places you can’t see. Our team can readily determine if it’s minor damage or something that you need to repair immediately.

    Sticky Doors and Windows

    Precise cuts and leveling tools were used to create the perfect frame for all of your doors and windows. If you find yourself faced with a door that won’t open or a window that doesn’t slide into place, it can be a sign of foundation damage. As the foundation in your Baton Rouge home dips in response to soil movement, the alignment of the door and window frames begin to fail.

    Just like the standing water, there can be other causes for your sticking doors and windows. All the humidity in the air can cause the wooden frames to swell. Loose or missing hardware may also be to blame. If the day isn’t humid or there aren’t signs of damaged hardware, it might be the foundation.

  • Do You Need to Hire a Structural Engineer to Fix Your Foundation in Baton Rouge?

    When your home was built, the builder used a complex set of blueprints and hired the best plumbers, electricians, and workers. Each level of your home, along with all your furnishings and keepsakes, sits on top of the foundation of your Baton Rouge home.

    Are you really going to trust the repairs of your foundation to someone who isn’t a structural engineer?

    Structural engineering is a specialty within civil engineering. Our specialists know how much pressure your home exerts on the foundation and at which points.

    Since most of the foundation is under your home and you can’t really see it, you need our structural engineers who can create a detailed plan that distributes the weight of your Baton Rouge home, all its furnishings, and your family, so that the foundation doesn’t fail.

    When you’re dealing with foundation repairs, it’s essential that a structural engineer from our team leads the project and oversees the work.

  • Cost of Basement Foundation Repair in Baton Rouge?

    You might be wondering how much it costs to repair the foundation of your home in Baton Rouge. This is a tough one because it varies. You may only have minor damage or it might be a big job.

    The average cost of a foundation repair in Baton Rouge is between $3,103 and $5,389, with prices ranging from $300 all the way to over $20,000. The quote you receive can be higher, lower, or somewhere in between these two numbers.

    You might hesitate to call our professionals because you think it’s going to cost too much; however, the damage left alone only grows and becomes more costly to repair.

    The average costs of a foundation repair aren’t necessarily indicative of what your quote will reflect. One of the best ways to pay less for foundation repairs for your Baton Rouge home is to identify problems early on.

  • Does the Soil in Baton Rouge Affect Your Foundation?

    You find two major soil types in the Baton Rouge area: loamy and clay. Both of these soils will soak up the frequent rainfall. This applies hydrostatic pressure to your home’s foundation.

    So yes, the soil in the yard of your Baton Rouge home can affect its foundation. Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is. While you might be hesitant to call our professionals when you suspect foundation damage due to the soil or something else, you need to act quickly.

    The damage to your foundation might be as bad as you think it is. Leaving your damaged foundation alone is almost guaranteed to make it worse and drive up the costs of repairs. Our team can evaluate your foundation and create a customized plan for repairs.

    We know that not all foundations in Baton Rouge are the same, and we approach each job as unique, whether it’s the soil, tree roots, or storms that caused the damage.
