What is the type and extent of damage?

First and foremost, what is the extent of the damage? If there is simply some rotten wood under the house that needs to be replaced, the cost for that is quite different than if the foundation wall is cracked or shifting or sinking. Is it just one wall or one area of the home? Or is it more than one area? Once the type and extent of damage is identified, the next step is to determine the repair.

What repair option will be used?

Depending on the type of damage, there are a few different options for repair. For cracked or bowing walls, carbon fiber straps are one of the more cost effective options. But if the walls have larger diagonal or horizontal cracks, it will need a more substantial repair such as i-beams, helical tie backs, or plate anchor systems. If the house is sinking, helical piers can be used to stabilize or lift the foundation. In some cases, the foundation wall may be crumbling or beyond repair. In that case, it will need to be replaced.

So what is the average cost for foundation repair in the Charlotte area?

The average number based on all our jobs in 2022 for foundation repair is $14,200. Our low end was in the $2,000 range and our highest cost was $101,000, although that amount is definitely not typical and we don’t often see costs go that high.

Until our foundation repair experts can evaluate your home and situation, we can only give an average cost of repairing a foundation. The important thing to keep in mind is that damages to your foundation do not go away and they don’t fix themselves.
