If you’ve ever watched even one home renovation TV show, you know the words “foundation problem” will strike fear into the hearts of any homeowner.
Foundation problems can range from a sagging crawl space or floor cracks to bowing walls and a tilting chimney. Whatever the signs of a foundation issue, it's important to address the problem quickly and with the help of a reputable contractor. Leaving foundation problems unattended will simply lead to bigger – and more expensive – repairs down the road.
Plus, if you’re thinking about selling your home, potential buyers will likely be scared off by signs of foundation problems or they may offer significantly less than your asking price.
Addressing foundation issues is critical for homeowners, so you don’t want to leave such an important job to whatever company you happen to find in a Google search. Your home is your largest investment, so it makes sense to use a company that is qualified, experienced and committed to doing the job right the first time.
How do you vet a foundation repair companies to find the best one? Follow these tips to help you choose:
Look for length of time in the industry and professional designations that speak to a company’s expertise

A company with years of experience will have the training, support and integrity you want. Locally, Lowcountry Basement Systems is a certified Foundation Supportworks commercial dealership, meaning its dealers receive extensive training and commit to integrity, quality and service.
Find a business that offers a custom solution to fit your home’s unique issue
