DIY is not the answer to your foundation crack problem. Let BDB Waterproofing help you with your foundation.

There is no feeling like doing it yourself.

In fact, DIY is so popular, there are many people who make a living showing us how to “do it ourselves.” Platforms such as YouTube, Pinterest, and good ole’ Fashion tv all focus on the idea of “doing it yourself”. To name a few shows and television stations for reference….

  • DIY Network
  • HGTV
  • Main Cabin Masters
  • Barnwood Builders
  • Fixer Upper
  • Rehab Addict
  • Building Alaska
  • Building Off The Grid

The list goes on!

While we love a good DIY, there are certain projects that should be left to the professionals. Specifically, we are talking about Foundation Crack Repair. Below we discuss 4 reasons you should leave the well-being of your foundation to the professionals.

Tool Accessibility

Going to the hardware store and picking up a ‘high-quality’ tool that will help seal up those cracks can be like putting a band-aid on an open wound. While the crack is temporarily fixed, the soil under your foundation could continue to shift, leaving you with a bigger issue than when you started. When you contact an expert, these foundation professionals will already have the needed tools to properly repair your home’s foundation.

Besides having the correct tools, the professionals have the expertise to work with these specialized tools. Acquiring these tools and learning how to use them can be a costly experience with no guarantee for a good outcome, potentially leaving your home worse off than when you started!

Home Value

There are quite a few things that can break on a house and easily be repaired without a lot of money leaving your pocket. When there is damage to the foundation, that is a different story. Being one of the most important parts of your home, banking on fixing an issue yourself could flush the value of your home right down the toilet. It’s important to protect the value of your home by hiring a foundation crack repair specialist to properly repair.

Time & Money

When you hear foundation repair, there is a chance that a large price tag to fix will accompany the needed repairs. DIY is a ‘good’ way to save money you would spend on a contractor. However, not being a professional, you risk making the problem worse, causing an even more expensive repair – and using more time when you could have hired a professional from the beginning. Not to mention, DIY repairs don’t come with a warranty!
