Costs vary according to the extent of the damage done to the foundation, but in general, the Perma Jack System costs less than other reputable repair methods. The cost of underpinning, leveling, and stabilizing with the Perma Jack System is often about half the cost of drilled piers. Some very general guide lines might be:
A small job might cost from about $5,000 to $10,000
A medium job about $15,000 to $30,000
A large job over $40,000
Perhaps Perma Jack's greatest cost saving is the elimination of future costs that other repair systems overlook. Other systems may require costly call-back repairs for numerous reasons:
- Drilled piers are not dug deep enough to make direct contact with rock.
- The void between the settling foundation and the house is filled with concrete. Thus, the house is merely shimmed up and will continue to settle.
- Cosmetic problems (ie: cracking walls, sloping floors, etc.) associated with foundation settlement are corrected, yet the house continues to sink.
The Perma Jack System address these issues and eliminates the need for future call-back expenses.
