February 24, 2016, Plano – Stratum Foundation Repair, a leading foundation repair company in Texas, has long offered lifetime warranties when they repair the foundation of their client’s homes. This warranty offer is in accordance with the company’s mission to provide for the foundational needs of all their residential clients. What most homeowners don’t realize is the fine print of competing warranty offers in the marketplace today. Some companies void the otherwise lifetime warranty if timely paperwork is not filed or a fee is not paid upon the sale of their home. This can cause problems that come back to haunt the past or present homeowner years down the road. Stratum decided to change this dynamic for the better by offering clear, straightforward lifetime warranties.
“For us, we don’t count the years during which a foundation we repair will be free of any problems,” asserts Ryan Hise, who owns and runs Stratum Foundation Repair. “We fully expect that when we stabilize the settlement of a particular repaired foundation, if there are any needed readjustments then we will send back a crew to do the work for no additional fees, and this includes the same home despite a new homeowner living there.”
There are several possible reasons why a home may have problems with their foundation. Homeowners need to be aware of these causes so that they can maintain the foundation properly, thus eliminating there any need for otherwise preventable repairs. Some of the causes behind structural foundation problems include seasonal weather changes, tree roots, plumbing leaks, and poor drainage.
“Studies have shown that foundation readjustments become necessary less often when the homeowner maintains the foundation properly,” points out Hise. “It’s why part of our duty is to educate the homeowner on what to do, such as having proper grading, drainage, and calling a professional plumber to check out plumbing problems during early detection. These things help eliminate disturbances to the foundation and extend the longevity of repairs.”
The easily transferrable lifetime warranty for the foundation repair doesn’t just apply for the homeowner who paid for the repair, which is what sets it apart. If and when the home is sold to a new homeowner, the warranty still stands. It’s this ease of transferable warranty that is one clear distinction, and the impetus for this announcement to bring clarity to the Dallas-Fort Worth marketplace.
There is also the matter of determining when the foundation needs additional work covered by the warranty, or if simple cosmetic concerns are at hand. Since few homeowners can determine when structural work is needed, it’s best to file a warranty request having previously contacted a structural engineer to help assess the situation in an unbiased manner. “In our case, a state licensed engineer acts as an objective third party to determine if additional work is covered by the warranty to offer the homeowner peace of mind,” explains Hise. “And if the engineer says that more work is needed that is covered by our warranty, we send our crews to work as promised. Having dealt with the customer confusion surrounding warranty terms from competing promises over the years, we thought it was time to set the record straight.”
