Q: Are there any health issues when dealing with old foundations?
A: That’s a good question, our company serves to advance environmental health through both federal and non-profit partnerships. We believe that partnerships are vital in setting public health programs into motion. To promote healthful home environments, Christian Brothers Pier Systems partners with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, The American Lung Association, the United States Department and Urban Development (HUD), the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the National Environmental Health Association(NEHA). These agencies educate the community about topics such as detecting harmful gasses found in crawl space basement soil. Other healthy homes initiatives include the EPA educating the community about topics such as the relationship between lung health and foundation cracks. Collaborative efforts between Environmental Health Advocates can improve the health for people everywhere.
Q: Before we go, can you give some advice on what a person needing foundation repair should look for in a company?
A: It is really important for you to have an idea about the cost incurred in the repair service. Your repair team should be able to recommend cost effective solutions for repairing and preventing foundation damage. You should also make sure that your foundation company provides a solid warranty on the repairs. Many companies will not warrant pier and beam foundation repairs but some will. It is a good idea to ask the repair company this question.
