SAN ANTONIO, Texas - According to the US Drought Monitor, over 90 percent of Texas is experiencing a drought and about 30 percent is in an extreme drought situation. The state of Texas has been under these conditions for the past three years, according to a State Impact report.

When soil becomes too dry, foundations can expand and then shrink, leaving cracks in the soil. Better Business Bureau encourages consumers looking for foundation repair services to take the time to find a professional to avoid a major shift in their finances.

According to the Foundation Repair Network, July, August and September is when cracks in the soil often appear. During times of excessive moisture changes you must inspect your foundation and note movement signs that signal a problem. Not all problems are disastrous; they may be a signal of something that can be corrected.

BBB recommends the following tips for consumers in need of foundation repair services:

Check your coverage. Some homeowner’s policies will cover foundation repair, so check with your insurance coverage prior to signing a repair contract.

Do your homework. Check with BBB at bbb.org or through BBB’s free mobile app before choosing a contractor. Get referrals and compare several price quotes using BBB’s Request a Quote.

Request an on-site inspection. So that you can be given an accurate estimate, have the company come to your house to inspect the damage.

Beware of red flags. High pressure sales tactics, full upfront payment or low estimates that may potentially balloon over time are all red flags to look out for.

Ask about warranties. Most businesses will offer information about how they plan to handle any repairs covered under a warranty.

Review your contract. Be sure to read, understand, and agree with everything listed in your contract. Do not sign a contract that has blank lines or items you don’t agree with.

To check the reliability of a company and find trustworthy businesses, visit bbb.org.
