I am in process of getting quotes for my home in Richmond Tx for my slab...due to drought and lg oak tree in front yard.

I wouldnt buy a home that has had foundation repair...nothing is guaranteed.. and yes if they did not do inside will fall.  my est for a 1600 sq ft house with 55 piers is $20,000.

most on the perimeter but a few on inside as well...what a mess and headache.  run....from it
