In this age of pandemic, many people have been putting off crucial home repair tasks simply because they don’t want several strangers in their home to do those repairs. However, even before COVID-19, you may still wonder if you will have foundation contractors and work crews inside your actual home if you are having foundation repairs done.
The answer as to whether foundation repair contractors will need to come inside is not a simple answer. As you may expect, it depends on the nature of your problem. Some foundation repairs can be done completely outside your home and some of them will require crews to come inside.
The good news is that your foundation contractor of choice should fully inform you of what needs to be done as well as how it will be done. In most cases, you will find that they will actually dig under your foundation to do common repairs like installing piers to provide stability. However, in some circumstances, they may need to come inside and do installations from inside your home.
Aside from various check-ins with you, typically done at the end of the day to be transparent with the work that was done and the work that still needs to be done, usually there isn’t a lot of reason for a foundation contractor and their crew to need to be inside your home. However, you do want to be aware that if you need to have a foundation inspection done, your inspector may want to come inside to look for signs of foundation damage. Sometimes the very first signs of damage start inside your home.
