A specific figure is difficult to quantify without knowing exactly what kinds of repairs you need for your particular situation. The size and the scope of work needed will directly determine the cost. Because of the variance in the scope of work impacting how expensive foundation repair will be, there is no set or expected price for the exact cost of a typical foundation repair job.
According to Home Guide, the national average for foundation repair cost is $4,511, with a standard range between $2,318 and $6,750. The median cost of a foundation repair job is $3,600. More significant and/or labor-intensive repairs, like those requiring extensive beam work, a large amount of hydraulically-driven steel piers, etc.-may cost much more, from $10,000 to $15,000 or more. However, those prices are not an indicator of the repair costs for your specific home.

There are conditions in Oklahoma City and throughout the state that make foundation repair more common here than in other locations. Some displacement of foundations is not only common but expected in and around the Oklahoma City area because of the highly pliable or clay soils that are found in this region.
A common problem that occurs is differential movement of a foundation, which is a consequence of uneven movement of the soil beneath the foundation system. The primary causes of non-uniform or uneven soil movement include natural soil consolidation and variation of soil moisture content in the highly pliable soils, which can produce shrinking/swelling effects such as settlement and heave.
