(Revised site. Still slightly under construction. Content is correct but please excuse any spelling, misplaced commas or the occasional broken link. I am working on them.) Please enjoy and learn it is well worth your time.
You are likely here because you have concerns about a foundation. Either your foundation, a foundation your looking to buy or a foundation belonging to someone you what to help. If this is so you have come to the right place.
I am Richard Rash and I am a Foundation Repair Consultant. My job is to help you solve your foundation problems no matter what they may be.
I have developed this website to provide as much generic information as I can to help you sidestep foundation problems when possible, and recognize them when necessary.
Without seeing your property it is impossible to fully diagnose your problems and to offer correct solutions. I am happy however to speak with you over the phone and help determine if you are likely to have foundation problems that should be addressed.
When it seems advisable that the problems have reached a point where they need to be addressed I do advise that, before signing any contracts, that you have your situation evaluated by an independent consultant who is not affiliated with any companies in the foundation repair business.
If you have been in our area of expansive soils for long I am sure you have heard the horror stories of shoddy, over priced foundation repair jobs and foundation repair failures.
It seems there are more dis-satisfied foundation repair customers than there are happy ones, and that does not have to be the case when you have the right information.
I can be you advocate, your check and balance. I can save you time, stress and Money.
