Know Your Contractor
Yesterday afternoon we got some scary news from Jersey Village. A homeowner had hired a foundation company to come in and elevate their home out of the flood zone. During the elevation the home started to shift and a section of the property collapsed. There was one employee under the home at the time and he was lucky to make it out with minor injuries. Luckily, no one else was injured during the incident. The unfortunate part of the situation is that the home is now considered a total loss. It will need to be demolished and rebuilt.
There are many companies out there that claim to be experts at elevating homes. Here at Arkitektura, we urge our customers to do their homework when choosing a contractor. Look them up. Check their references. Make sure you look at their entire body of previous work. Some homeowners fall in love the cheapest price possible but when it comes to your home, it should be quality of work over cost. There are definitely some great companies out there but here at Ark we pride ourselves on being experts in the industry because of our experienced crew, cutting edge technology and best finished product in the industry.
