If you have already contacted a professional and had them come and inspect your home for foundation issues, then the next step is to prepare for them to come and fix these issues for you. By taking the time to prepare for their arrival, you can help the process to go smoothly, both for them and for you. Here are three excellent tips for preparing for residential foundation repair.
Clear The Area
One important task that you need to complete before the professionals arrive to fix your foundation is to clear the area surrounding your home. This is a very important task because it gives the professionals room to work without running into any barriers. This also allows them to easily see the entire perimeter of your home, which is very important for foundation repair.
Create A Plan To Be Out Of The House
Another important tip for preparing for your residential foundation repair is to make sure that you are out of the house during the repair process. Not only is your home unsafe to be in during the foundation repair, but you are also likely to get in the way of the professionals who are working hard to fix your foundation. To make the process as successful as possible, plan to be somewhere else for the entire duration of the repair process.
Remove And/Or Cover Furniture
Lastly, it is a good idea to either remove or cover furniture that may get in the way during your foundation repair. Removing your furniture will get it out of the way and allow the professionals to work easily within your home. Furniture that can’t be moved, or furniture that you have already moved, but still may be at risk for becoming damaged, should be properly covered with furniture blankets, tarps, or plastic.
