Foundation Retrofitting Studio City
Foundation retrofitting services are one of the most overlooked projects homeowners tend to not notice until it’s too late. In Studio City, hillside homeowners can have faulty foundations that are cracked, damaged from water, or termite damage that can cripple your home when a large enough earthquake hits. Homeowners rarely pay attention to signs that can indicate foundation failure. Some of the major signs for foundation damage are when you notice your windows and doors not aligning properly. Other damages can include uneven or sinking floors, noticing slight slant on chimney, and visible damages to your crawl space.
What you need to do is schedule a free estimate with a licensed contractor to review the damages and replace what needs to be replaced in order to prevent further damages to your home. Schedule your free foundation estimate for your home in Studio City.
Important Facts To Consider
WHY DO YOU NEED TO HIRE A LICENSED CONTRACTOR IN CALIFORNIA?
In California, any remodeling or construction project that surpasses $500 (includes labor and materials) requires an active license from California Contractors State License Board (CSLB).
HOW ARE SOME BENEFITS OF HIRING A LICENSED CONTRACTOR IN CALIFORNIA?
Hiring a licensed contractor from CSLB ensures you have a voice against the contractor if your relationship goes sour. As homeowners, you can file a complaint with CSLB and have them enforce any agreement between you and the contractor.
LIABILITY CONCERNS WHEN HIRING A LICENSED CONTRACTOR IN CALIFORNIA
Active contractors with CSLB are required to carry workers compensation insurance and liability insurance just in case something goes wrong. This means thousands of dollars in savings if someone accidently falls on your property, or a remodeling goes wrong.
