At Granite Foundation Repair, our goal is to help homeowners achieve peace of mind. We understand that your home is one of your most cherished assets. As the savvy homeowner that you are, it only makes sense to do everything to protect it.
Now, foundation issues come in all shapes and sizes. Some may cost you a few hundred bucks to repair while others can become truly complicated and pricey. That’s why having your home inspected the moment you realize something is amiss is key to preventing further escalation of problems.
Have you noticed:
- Doors and windows no longer latching as they did before?
- Certain parts of the floor sinking into the ground?
- Certain parts of the floor heaving in the upward direction?
- Cracks beginning to appear on the walls, floor, or even the foundation itself?
- The chimney beginning to slant?
- Gaps beginning to appear between the kitchen wall and cabinets?
If you have noticed any of the above, seek professional help immediately. Left unaddressed, what started as a hairline fissure on your wall can grow to become a nightmare that may even cause your home to become uninhabitable.

Our Foundation Inspection Approach
We’ll begin by scrutinizing your concerns, which will require your presence. Sometimes, what may be giving you sleepless nights may turn out to be completely unrelated to the foundation.
During our inspection, we’ll examine both the exterior and interior of your Forney home. And this may also include going around the perimeter to examine the drainage. That’s because poor drainage is one of the top reasons for foundation failures in Texas.
We offer both concrete slab and pier and beam foundation inspections. When checking a concrete slab foundation, we’ll check for signs of issues such as:
- Creaky and bouncy floors.
- Puddles around the exterior of the home.
- Odd smells or increased humidity levels coming from exterior walls.
- Bulges or curves in the exterior walls.
- Improperly functioning windows and doors.
- Cracks on the walls, floor, or even the foundation itself.
As for pier and beam foundations, we’ll conduct a thorough inspection of the crawl space. We’ll be on the lookout for telltale signs of troubles such as:
- Mold and mildew on beams.
- A damp crawlspace.
- Poor construction.
- Cracking exterior piers.
- Tilting piers and building issues.
- Sagging floors and shifting beams.
What Happens After a Foundation Inspection?
Normally, a thorough foundation inspection process takes no more than two hours to complete.
The exact amount of time depends on various factors, including the size of your home. And even if your Forney home isn’t occupied, we’d still want you to be present during the inspection process.
Once we are done inspecting your home, we’ll then write a report of our findings. If there are indeed foundation issues found, we’ll offer you a comprehensive and customized estimate.
Sometimes an engineer’s report may be required. If so, Granite Foundation Repair can help you in that regard, too. However, you’d also be free to hire your own engineer as well.
