    Common Causes of Foundation Problems in Stockton

    Foundation issues have some possible causes. Here are the top ones for Stockton residents:

    • Improper modifications: Roofing or landscaping work that wasn't done properly could result in your foundation settling.
    • Drought conditions: Stockton is susceptible to drought. The shortage of rainfall and fluctuating humidity levels each season contribute to ever-shifting soil. The resulting soil settlement can move and crack your foundation.
    • Aging plumbing: The average Stockton home construction year is 1973. If you live in an older home, it's likely to have cast-iron plumbing. When the pipes start eroding, leakage could reach your foundation and even pool beneath it.
    • Tree Roots: Tree roots can encroach on a home's foundation through cracks, and may exert pressure that results in your foundation cracking, pipes leaking, and overall structural weakening.

    How to Choose the Best Foundation Repair Company

    To pick a foundation repair company, you should consider what's most important to you. Use this list of criteria to help you steer the process.

    Licensing and Experience

    The Golden State issues many different kinds of contracting licenses, and foundation companies often have more than one. You can verify a company's licensing information through the Contractors State License Board, a division of the California Department of Consumer Affairs. Look for a company with a General Building Contractor, General Engineering Contractor, C-8 Concrete, or C-61 Pile Driving credential. Talk to representatives to gain more insight into a company's experience. You should ask about local permit ordinances, inspection processes and building codes.

    One of the simplest ways to assess a company's reputation is to browse its website. Look for how long the company has operated and the accreditations its team holds. Many top companies publish educational content for potential customers.

    Customer Reviews

    Before selecting a company, examine its online profile with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can examine both positive reviews and complaints. Complaints don't mean a contractor is bad news. BBB reviews show how the company handled complaints. It's a good sign if the company has settled issues proactively and appropriately. You should stay away from a company with more negative reviews, no accreditation, and no communication regarding issues.

    Foundation Repair Cost in Stockton

    Foundation repair costs can differ significantly based on the degree of the problems and what needs to be done to fix them. For minor foundation cracking and settling problems, you may pay as little as $1,800. However, if there is quite substantial destruction, the typical cost will be around $2,900. More complex jobs involving tunneling, helical piers, or major concrete leveling could run you $6,800. See below the average foundation repair costs for common issues.

    Common Foundation Repair ServicesAverage Cost
    Crack Repair$341
    Leak Repair$2,724
    Stabilization$4,707
    Underpinning$1,307
    Waterproofing$3,007

    Frequently Asked Questions About Foundation Repair in Stockton

    What will I pay to repair my foundation in Stockton?

    You could pay about $2,900 on materials and labor for your foundation project. Ultimately, your costs will depend on your specific needs and the extent of the foundation damage.

    What's the most popular foundation type in Stockton?

    Stockton-area homes use several types of foundation, from concrete slabs and pier-and-beam foundations to crawlspaces and basements.

    What are some signs I need foundation waterproofing?

    You'll typically need to waterproof your foundation when you see any of these signs:
    • Plumbing leaks
    • Discoloration or odors
    • Uneven floors
    • Flooding
    • Hairline cracks
    • Mold and mildew
    You should also know about the two different types of waterproofing. Interior waterproofing uses sump pumps, drains, and basement and crawlspace sealants. Exterior waterproofing, the less expensive option, involves exterior drains and physical barriers between your landscaping and foundation.

    Will my homeowners insurance cover foundation repair?

    Sometimes. Whether you'll have coverage depends on the types of policies you have and the cause of the foundation damage. Flood or earthquake insurance will typically cover foundation damage caused by those specific disasters. Homeowners insurance can cover damage from other disasters, but will not cover normal wear and tear. We recommend talking to your insurance agent about the extent of your policy and the process of filing a claim.
