Foundation Repair Warranties: Not All Are Created Equal

It’s always important to read the fine print. Whether we are talking about rebates, warranties, or formal agreements, much heartache and headache can be avoided if you understand what signing that dotted line means. This goes for foundation repair warranties, too!

Speaking of headaches, those cracks in your foundation, slanted floors, or doors and windows that don’t quite close all the way are all signs of foundation damage. Having the value and safety of your home compromised by anything can be a stressful situation. With that being said, finding the best skilled, qualified, and trusted foundation repair company to remedy these issues needs to be at the top of your list. And what says trust like offering a fully transferrable, lifetime warranty? When you have your foundation repaired, having the peace of mind that you won’t have to go through the ordeal again is incredibly valuable—not to mention the value you can add to your home should you ever sell it by transferring that warranty to the buyer. But, it’s important to note that not all foundation repair warranties are made equal.

Knowing What Warranty Works

Talking to your neighbor, you may realize that they have a different foundation warranty than you. The thing is, not all “lifetime” or “transferrable” warranties are totally lifetime and transferrable. Some companies require that a fee be paid at the sale of the home in order to transfer the warranty. There also may be a timeframe for which this transfer needs to be done. If these stipulations are not met, the warranty can be voided. If a company offers you a warranty like this, are they really standing with their work? With this hustle, bustle, and confusion in addition to the mountain of paperwork that comes along with buying or selling a home, adding hurdles to transferring foundation repair warranties sounds like they are tempting you to void the warranty.

A company that has the community and homeowner’s best interest at heart keeps it simple. For example, the warranty should stay with the piers and the foundation. At WCK Foundation Repair, our transferrable lifetime warranty does exactly that. WCK doesn’t even need to know if you sell your home—their work is covered for the buyer just as it was for the original homeowner. 

So keep in mind—a warranty is a great thing to have. You should insist that the repair company you choose offers one on their work. However, make sure you understand what is entailed in maintaining and leveraging that warranty.
