It is estimated that a house with a damaged foundation will typically lose between 15% to 20% of its value if the seller is able to find a buyer. The law requires the seller to notify the buyer of any foundation damage and the buyer is advised to have a professional foundation inspection to avoid costly repairs after purchasing the house.

The more damage a house experiences, the more costly the repairs will be. It’s advisable to immediately contact a professional foundation contractor when you suspect any damage. Waiting for a month to do foundation repair can not only double the cost of foundation repair but might triple it.
