FOUNDATION REPAIR COSTS FOR MARION, IN
In Marion, IN, many homeowners with cracking and
settling foundations are faced with the decision whether
they should replace or repair their foundation. Like
other home repairs, it's important to weight all of your
options before making the final decision. Whether you
chose to repair or replace your foundation, consider the
pros and cons for each.
- Foundation Replacement: With foundation replacement,
heavy equipment is used to excavate the perimeter of
your home. That means your porch, steps, walkway and
landscaping would be removed. The home is lifted and
supported on temporary supports to rebuild the
foundation, then the home is lowered back in place. Soil
is replaced around the home. Foundation replacement can
be an expensive, disruptive and time-consuming process.

foundation repair is the best alternative. It is cheaper
than foundation replacement. Our team of
experts can fully inspect your foundation and determine
the best repair solutions for your settlement issues. McAtee uses affordable foundation repair products that

At McAtee, we recommend
foundation repair to fix
foundation issues caused by problematic soil conditions,
so the problem won't recur. Foundation replacement only
fixes the foundation, not the soil-related problem. One of
our foundation repair methods, such as steel piers, is
driven deep into the soil until they reach load bearing
soil. The structure's weight is transferred onto the
piers to lift the foundation. This method is designed to
support, stabilize and permanently stop settlement.
