Are you in the process of purchasing property for your business? Before making your lease or sale final, it’s essential to make sure you fully assess the property’s foundation and landscaping. Existing and future foundation issues can negatively impact your business’ bottom-line, as well as damage the trust of others looking to lease from you. The best way to protect your investment is through a professional commercial property evaluation.
The Importance of Foundation Repair and Inspection
Foundation movement is a problem in Texas, especially the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Settlement issues and foundation cracks can cause severe structural foundation damage. Hot weather causes the expansive clay soils around the foundation to shrink. When it rains excessively without proper run-off, the soil quickly expands. If not addressed quickly, the foundation on your commercial property may develop several costly issues. Pay attention for these six tell-tale signs of foundation issues:
- Exterior cracks
- Exterior fascia gaps
- Interior cracks
- Doors and windows not opening or closing
- Plumbing issues
- Warping floors
If you see any signs of cracks or movement in your foundation, you need to act now. The longer you delay addressing these issues, the more costly it will be in the long run to repair. Additionally, you may also endanger the safety of your workers or tenants.

Foundation repair is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Perma-Pier offers a customized solution based on your specific needs. Since multiple factors contribute to a foundation’s failure, we focus to make sure every repair and maintenance solution is unique. Only after a thorough, no-charge evaluation of your property’s foundation can we accurately provide a cost estimate and repair plan.
How do you get a no-cost evaluation? First, you fill out our online form and connect with a sales professional to schedule an appointment. One of our Evaluators will meet you and conduct an on-site or virtual evaluation of your property. They will examine the building’s structural components and systems, as well as review all landscaping, drainage systems, and grading. Proper drainage systems are essential because they protect the foundation from run-off water that can erode the soil around your property.
Once your evaluation is complete, you will be provided with a detailed summary to Include points of notable defects and potential hazards. We will walk you through your foundation’s needs, possible repairs, and develop an appropriately-rated plan to ensure your repairs are completed effectively and in a timely manner.
