There are many things that people normally do before selling their home. From sprucing up the landscaping to making minor repairs, you want your house to be as “move-in ready” as possible for the potential buyer. In taking care of their pre-sale checklists around the house, one question we are frequently asked by our customers is, “do we do a free re-check of your foundation before a sale?”
“Should I recheck my foundation before selling my Baton Rouge home” is a perfectly natural question to ask. However, the answer is, no we don’t do free re-checks. There are two major reasons why.
Are you experiencing new symptoms of foundation damage?
The method we use to fix your home’s foundation is as close to a permanent fix as there is available. The amount of time that elapses from your foundation’s repair until the time you decide to sell your home has no bearing on that repair. Our team at WCK goes to great lengths to make sure that the work we do is done right the first time and there is no need for a re-evaluation.
Beyond that, when we fix your home’s foundation, we offer recommendations to remedy what caused the foundation damage in the first place. If these recommendations are followed, you won’t experience the problems that originally arose. In most cases, all you will experience after foundation repair is some minor settling, but not the symptoms that first brought you to us.
Your home’s foundation warranty is transferrable.
The other major reason why a free re-check of your home’s foundation is unnecessary is that the work we do is backed by a fully transferrable warranty. You can put your house on the market with the added benefit of that warranty. If, down the road, the new homeowners find that they need our services, that warranty is their starting point.
We fully understand that selling your home is a stressful time, and we know that being upfront about work done on the home is vital. But, the work we do will stand the test of time, and the warranty that backs that work is all the assurance your potential buyer will need. Should you have any questions about putting your home on the market when you have previously had foundation work done, call our team at WCK Foundation Repair, and we will be happy to answer them.
