$12K for 32 piers seems extremely high to me. That works out to $375 per pier, which is a pretty high retail price. In my area, Houston, TX, there are companies that will charge that and even more. A friend of mine recently got a bid of $15K for a 32-pier foundation repair job. There is one company here in Houston that charges $195 per pier and another company that charges $155 per pier. Both offer lifetime transferable warranties. I found a guy that charges $100 per pier, but he only offers a four-year warranty.
I know that foundation repair costs can vary widely from one part of the country to another. There even seems to be a large price differential between here and Dallas. I would shop around. Ask some rehabbers in your area who they have used. That?s how I found the guy that charges $100 per pier.
There are also several different systems that are used in repairing foundations and that also accounts for price differences.
Hope this help.
Best of Success!!
