Something that we find a lot of clients are worried about when considering options to fix their foundation is whether it is going to affect the resale value of their home. This is a reasonable fear and usually stems from the assumption that if they have any repairs done it will be like a red flag to any potential buyers who may then try to use it to negotiate a lower offer.
In any event, a homeowner must disclose any existing issues and repairs that were completed as a result. However, if the repairs were done properly and by a reputable contractor then in most cases they will have no affect on the value of the home at all. In fact, by repairing the existing issues prior to the sale of your home you are preventing an opportunity for the potential buyer to use the issues as a negotiation tactic and in turn preserving your homes value.
There are a few steps that you can take in order to ensure you are doing everything you can to protect your homes value, most of which is carefully selecting the right contractor for the work.

The basement and foundation repair services of Abarent Construction Edmonton were effective, efficient and timely in all aspects in addressing the tiny, hairline crack, the first crack in 26 years due to the bizarre freezing and thawing that occurred this year, along a foundation wall. Jim and Lannie, the two gentlemen that performed the work explained what they observed and assured us that the two day work plan was well in hand. They were polite, hardworking and thorough in their inspection and remediation as they also confirmed the weeping tile was in good condition.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
It is terrific to see that your company's motto of "Quality without Compromise" is more than just words... The job was completed ahead of schedule and the workers ensured that when they left, the yard looked just like it did when they arrive. Well, actually it looked better...★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a job well done. After this past weekend's deluge, our basement was left completely dry.★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Their employees were hard working, knowledgeable and courteous. They were so confident that they were going to fix my problem for good, that it left me with no doubt. Although there are many companies doing this type of work, Abarent clearly knows their stuff. Once the job was done, I knew I had made the right choice.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
