Structurally Sound and Level Foundations Key to Remodeling Success
LOS ANGELES – Julian Construction (http://www.julianconstruction.com), a Los Angeles based construction company that specializes in foundation repair and foundation construction, says getting a foundation inspection is a critical first step in home remodeling.
“Home remodeling projects should never be started without first conducting a complete foundation inspection,” says Julian De La Torre, founder of Julian Construction. “Any foundation repair issues must be thoroughly addressed before the remodeling work is done.”
Foundations that are in poor condition can cause interior and exterior wall cracks and crumbling, tile cracks, sloping floors and leaks. Foundation damage can be caused by weak or poor soil, earth movement, the age of the structure, poor drainage, and maturing trees and shrubs. A professional foundation inspection will identify all defects and damage, as well as potential problem areas.
“Homeowners will be throwing away good money if they try to remodel a home with a bad foundation,” says Julian who adds “Without a sound and level foundation, remodeling will not only be time consuming and costly, it can turn into a complete disaster.”

Founder and retrofit expert Julian De La Torre, along with his partner Shawn Kyles, an expert in foundation repair and house bolting, have retrofitted more than 6,600 homes, apartments and commercial properties since the early 1990s.
