At Douglas Foundation Services, we get this question a lot, “What is your favorite type of piering system for my Austin home?”
While this may seem a cut and dry answer, it’s not. There are so many factors that go into making the right decision for your home and your situation.
1) Where is the home in the Austin area?
Austin is home to many types of soil. Some homes sit on soil that slides around freely while other homes sit practically on top of bedrock. Others have a combination of soil types with or without rocks. We will explain each scenario and make recommendations based upon what would work for your particular home.
2) Are you buying the home and planning on living in the home?
If this is your main residence and you are planning a remodel or just want everything to work correctly, this is another factor in your decision making process. Most homeowners want to install the best piers so that they have peace of mind over the years. If the home is rental unit, we can make recommendations for cost savings.
3) Financial Situations
In some cases, the best piers may be financially out of reach. We can help guide you to make the best decisions for your financial situation and your home (or commercial property).
We are Douglas Foundation Services – doing what is right for your home, for the lifetime of your home.
