Rebuild garage

I have an old detached garage with large cracks in the foundation. I was told by an inspector that it was beyond repair and would need to be repoured. The rest of the garage structure is sound. Can I have just the foundation repoured but keep the building? How much will that cost me?

If there is a slab and it is not affected, it will probably support cribbing in four places. Which will facilitate raising the structure enough to allow the demolishion and replacement of the foundation.

Will saving the building and re-doing the foundation cost more than to tear the whole thing down to rebuild? Any estimates for prices? I live in Texas.
