Frequent Foundation Repair Questions


How do I know if my structure needs repairs?

  • You might have seen the warning signs…. cracks in the sheetrock, cracks in the brick veneer, doors miss-aligned and doors that are sticking. These warning signs could all be signs that your foundation is in trouble. Call Uretek and our professionals will come out and give you a thorough assessment free of charge, with no obligation. We’ll give you a detailed quote if work needs to be done.

How long will repairs take?

  • If exterior perimeter piering needs to be completed… repairs will take 3 to 4 days to complete.
  • If interior lifting is required using the Uretek Method… repairs will take 1 day to complete.
  • Our clean up is exceptional. We will replace any concrete that might have been removed and replant plants that needed to be moved.

What about payment?

  • We accept personal checks, cashier checks and credit cards.  Payment will be due in full upon completion of the project.

What about plumbing tests?

  • Uretek strongly suggests the discharge side of the plumbing is checked before any type of foundation project is completed.

Do you have any references?

How long has Uretek been in business?

  • We have been in business for over 40 years. Uretek ICR Gulf Coast has been in business over 20 years. Current owners Uretek ICR South Texas have been in business 8 years.

Is there anything that I need to do to prepare for these repairs?

  • No, not really. You may, as a precaution, take any pictures or mirrors down.

Do you have a warranty?

  • After work is completed and paid in full, a lifetime warranty certificate is issued on the scope of the work. This warranty is owner transferable for the life of the structure. There is a $300 transfer fee paid within 30 days of transfer of property ownership to keep warranty current.

What about my landscaping?

  • If plants of shrubs need to be removed we will place them to the side and water them while work is being done. Once work is completed we will replant and water them again.

Does someone need to be home?

  • No, the only time we will need to get into the property is when we are ready to level and this is done near completion of repairs. If interior repairs are needed we will need access to interior of the home one additional time.
