Can I Live in My Home During Residential Foundation Repair in MS
Updated: Mar 3
If you have cracks in your foundation that are greater than ¼ inch, you’ll likely need residential foundation repair in Mississippi. Some homeowners are hesitant to schedule foundation repairs because they don’t want to disrupt their schedule at home or work.
However, you’ll be happy to know that you can live in your home during the repair process. The only time you may be required to move out for a temporary period is if your project involves interior support work.
When you book a consultation with Foremost Foundations and Construction, we’ll be able to tell you what damage has occurred and the extensiveness of the repair. This way, you can prepare for the work being done.
Most Residential Foundation Repairs Have Minimal Disruption
Americans spend about 62 percent of their waking time at home. Before the pandemic, they were spending about half their time at home. Between socializing, relaxing, household chores and work, our homes have become our sanctuaries. No wonder why it makes people nervous to hear their homes may be out of commission due to a renovation or repair.
Fortunately, most residential foundation repairs do not require you to move out of your home. You can continue working and taking care of your family with minimal disruption to your daily routine. In fact, the repair team won’t even need to access the interior of your home for the vast majority of the project time.
There will be some noise, so it’s important to prepare for this if you work from home or have young children who nap. But, the noise should not be overly disruptive. Also, there will be some materials and work happening outside the home, but not to the point that you can’t leave. You can still get the mail or take your dog for a walk.
Interior Work Can Get Loud, So Be Prepared!
The only time you may need to move out of your home is if you need interior support. If the damage is substantial, the only solution is to cut 2x2 holes into your interior concrete pad. The process does not make your home unsafe to live in though. It is simply noisy, messy and disruptive.
Fortunately, our teams work hard to keep the disruption to a minimum. We may ask you to move furniture around so that the equipment can be brought in, and we will corner off the space where our crews are working. But as long as the noise doesn’t bother you, it’s fine if you stay! There is no need to move out.
