RECENT SUCCESSFUL REPAIR JOBS COMPLETED

  • 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 Buffalo?

    Buffalo, New York is perhaps the most geologically perse area within the state of New York. With the presence of several types of loam and siltpresent within the first few inches of the topsoil layer, as well as minerals and water-soluble clays, to the sandy subsoil layer, the soil in and around the greater Buffalo, New York area is considered to be less than desirable for the accommodation of foundation footings. In this soil survey of Erie County, where the city of Buffalo is located, according to the most recent soil analysis of this area, the combination of the above-mentioned factors will contribute greatly to the movement of foundation footings. That is the legal document equivalent of a loud and clear YES, foundations can move in Buffalo, NY!

    There are several factors that affect the soil in this area of New York. It is real, it is an actual thing, and we are here to assist you in your Buffalo New York foundation repair project.

    There are several types of soil found in the USDA report, in and around the greater Buffalo area, and every one of them is bad news for your foundation. Several citizens of Buffalo and the Lake Erie area have reported foundation movements as dramatic as up to 3 and 4 feet! That is a lot of movement for a foundation to try and endure, and the ensuing pressure from the surrounding soil essentially ate away entire structures that all started by exhibiting some form of foundation movement. The chances of foundation movement in the greater Buffalo area are about the same as the threat of earthquakes in Los Angeles or anywhere along the San Andreas Fault Line! If you plan on moving to this area, do your homework! Either find a home for sale that has recently been certified as safe and sound by our structural engineers, or find a foundation repair expert like Regional Foundation Repair that is familiar with the perse conditions that plague foundations in the greater Buffalo Area.

  • What Causes Foundation Problems in Buffalo?

    The leading cause of foundation issues of the greater Buffalo are actually too numerous to go into any great detail. That being said, there are those issues that are more widespread and common from foundation to foundation. Things like:

    • Expansive soils
    • Corrosive soils
    • Poor drainage soils
    • Excessive settling
    • Improperly compacted soils

    So, as you can see, the soils are the leading candidate for foundation issues in the greater Buffalo Area. The vast majority of homes with foundation issues are of course the older homes constructed in the late 1930s as there were little information available during that time frame as to what might be going on underneath your Buffalo home. As more homes were built, and more technology and information about what causes foundation damage became available, so too did the companies that specialized in foundation repairs.

  • What Are the Signs of Basement Foundation Damage in Buffalo?

    If your Buffalo home has a basement, full or half, the basement walls are essentially your foundation. This is where you will first see the signs of foundation damage. The foundation of any home is designed to move a bit and be perfectly safe. It is when the foundation goes beyond those parameters that foundation problems begin. You will notice that your basement walls and floors could be;

    • Cracking horizontally
    • Cracking Vertically
    • Cracking in a stair step fashion
    • Cracking and widening gaps in the floor slab
    • Doors that won’t shut
    • Doors and windows that drag or stick
    • Sheetrock cracking and splitting in finished basements
    • Stand or otherwise pooling of water

    These are the more common basement foundation signs that should give you cause for concern in the Buffalo area. Again, some of these cracks are to be expected as a direct result of the home settling. It is when excessive settling begins, that it ends up being a foundation problem, and only a trained foundation professional like us would know the difference between what is normal and what is not.

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

    When it is apparent that a foundation repair is needed for your home, we may recommend an inspection from our structural engineers.

    The best way to utilize our structural engineer in a foundation repair is by having them complete an inspection before any repairs are completed. They will provide a comprehensive structural report for your home. After you receive this report and the foundation repairs are completed, our structural engineer can come back for a follow-up inspection, and again you will get certified documentation on the foundation as being safe and sound.

    If you happen to be the party who is selling the home, you may want to offer our structural engineer’s report of the foundation as part of the closing process. Perhaps, you have had the foundation recently repaired, and you just want our engineer’s stamp of approval to use when putting the home on the market. Either way, buying or selling a home in the greater Buffalo area should have a structural engineer certification because of the perse conditions that can cause severe foundation damage. The fee charged by our structural engineers seems rather minuscule compared to the cost of repairing or replacing an entire foundation.

  • Cost of Basement Foundation Repair in Buffalo

    Simple repairs can be less than $500, while more complicated repairs can cost in excess of $20,000 in Buffalo.

    There are, however, some average costs associated with foundation repair and that is exactly what we are going to be focusing on. The following costs are averages and are by no means meant to be exact figures. Each foundation is different, that every foundation repair would also be different in terms of the final costs. So, here are the average low, high, and overall cost paid for foundation repair in Buffalo, New York:

    • The average low cost of a foundation repair in Buffalo is $1166
    • The average high cost of a foundation repair in Buffalo is $11660 (and up)
    • The average amount paid for a foundation repair in Buffalo $5057

    These added fees are also taken into consideration:

    • Average labor costs
    • Average materials cost
    • Average project costs (components, machinery, and clean-up fees)

    However, these averages do not include:

    • Building permit(s)
    • Inspections
    • Building fees
    • Materials/supplies local sales taxes
    • Materials/supplies state sales taxes

    Here is another way of looking at a foundation repair project. Your home is probably going to be the single most expensive investment that you are ever going to make and, like a good investor, you want to protect it. Foundation repair, regardless of the cost, is your way of protecting your investment.

  • Does the Soil in Buffalo Affect Your Foundation?

    We have mentioned the soil around the greater Buffalo area in practically every section of this guide. And rightly so, since it seems that soil conditions are the single greatest cause of foundation problems for the Buffalo area. In the latest soil analysis for Erie County, and Buffalo, in particular, there wasn’t much in the way of good news to report where foundation footing was concerned.

    To be a bit more precise, on page 164 of the USDA’s soil analysis report for Erie County, it stated the following quote;

    “A high water table, flooding, shrink-swell potential, and organic layers can cause the movement of footings”

    According to this report, the footings of foundations can move. And further numbers would let you know that in Buffalo, New York foundations move as a direct result of the soil that surrounds them!
