Concrete foundation repair cost breakdown

The cost of concrete foundation repairs varies widely, depending on whether you have a few minor cracks or more serious structural issues. 



If you have cracks in your foundation that are more than 1/8 of an inch wide, you will need to have them repaired. This can cost between $250 and $800* on average. 



You will need to have any leaks sealed off and waterproofed at an average cost of between $2,500 and $5,000*.



There are two main methods for restoring sinking foundations, and the cost of your project will depend on which is right for your home. Installing concrete piers under the property can cost between $1,300 and $1,500* per pier, while mud-jacking, also known as slab-jacking or leveling, costs from $500 to $1,300* on average. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the common concrete foundation repair methods? 
There are four principal methods. Piering involves adding pillars under the house to restore it to its original height, while leveling involves pumping grout mixture into the air pockets below the foundation. Your contractor may also recommend sealing, which is designed to combat moisture and drainage problems, or stabilizing, which involves the use of carbon fiber or steel to fix bowing in the walls. 
Can I live in my house during concrete foundation repairs? 
In most cases, you should be able to remain in your home while your foundation repairs are carried out. However, there might be some cases where the utilities need to be cut off, or your house would not be safe to live in, particularly if it requires extensive repairs.
Does my home insurance cover foundation repairs?
This is likely to depend on the cause of the problem. If a leak below ground has caused the damage, your insurer might cover it. However, they are less likely to accept a claim if the damage has been created by problems with the construction of your concrete block foundation. Check the wording of your policy statement and speak with your insurer to find out whether they will cover the cost of repairs.
How do you repair cracks in concrete foundation walls?
If you have large or recurring cracks in your concrete walls, you will need to consult a structural engineer to find out the cause of the problem. Products such as hydraulic cement can patch up the cracks but will not last forever. You will need a flexible material that will shift with the foundations of your home.
