When pouring foundations, we have designed and built them to meet and exceed the City of
College Station and City of Bryan standards. We have done everything to reasonably ensure that the new foundation will not move. There are things that we can do to further ensure that a new foundation will not move such as installing 8” diameter piers 12’ deep or deeper beams and more steel bars. These have not been included unless specifically stated. If the new foundation does move, repair of the new foundation and the resulting damage will result in an extra charge. If the existing house foundation moves and causes damage to new remodeling, repair of the resulting damage to the new remodeling will result in an extra charge. We are not responsible for any movement of the existing foundation or the resulting damage.
Very few existing foundations are level. When we pour a new foundation attached to an old foundation; we will match the slope of the existing foundation. We have not made provisions to level the existing foundation unless specifically stated.
We are not responsible for defects in material that we cannot see or do not know about. We are not responsible for the resulting damage caused by those defects.
All hidden, concealed or unforeseeable conditions, including code violations, that must be repaired, corrected, replaced, or overcome will result in a change order to the work.
