1st off, it would probably be more helpful IF you posted a description of your problem,,, adding a location's often helpful, too,,, some responders will not care who your next-door neighbor is :whistling2:

I don't understand your post. Are you looking for advice on how to get a government handout to fix your foundation? Or are you looking for advice on how you can fix your foundation?

I have no idea how you can get a government handout. If you are looking for suggestions on how you can fix your foundation, you need to post some pictures, and include a full, detailed, accurate description of what the problem is, why you think it is occurring, and what type of solution you are looking at. So for example, have you made any measurements, are there any visible cracks, is the floor out of level etc. You say the foundation is on clay, how do you know this, and why do you think that is a problem?

pricing depends on several factors - time of year, day of week, cash/check/credit card, & whether or not contractor has a boat pymt to make :laughing:
