"They were very professional fellas. They were on time, clean-cut, respectful, didn't take a ton of breaks or chit chat - they just got right to work everyday" and really took my visions and brought them to life. They really cared and listened to what I wanted. And they gave me a GREAT DEAL!!!! I would recommend them over and over, and of course, will be using them again in the future!!

-Des L.

" initially impressed me with his eye for detail during our initial consultation. In spite of having several competing projects, he worked" in our high priority projects because of the potential water damage that delayed repair could cause to our home. and his team performed the majority of their work during the week, while I was away at work. As the work progressed, would call with status updates. Each member of the team that I had the pleasure of meeting was gracious to me and respectful of our home. The work looks great, and is exactly what we wanted. One of our neighbors was so impressed with the quality of their work and their professionalism that they immediately hired ' team to for roof repair on their home.

Crawl Spaces

Homes that aren't built on a slab foundation or basement feature crawl spaces to allow for the necessary access to plumbing, electrical and other home systems.

There are three major home repairs you have to do if you want to protect the value of your home. While they aren’t fun, you can’t put them off. See if you agree with these three unsexy home improvement projects you just have to do.

Angie's Answers

For this type of job, you need plans and specs from an Architectural/Engineering firm before thinking about contractors - and to get a building permit. Ben's method would work and done incrementally could cost well over $100,000 plus as he says, but this not really the most economic way to approach this big a job. A House Mover or Foundation Underpinning specialty company can usually slide your house onto a whole new foundation, or jack it up on steel beams and hold it there while a basement is dug underneath it, without any intermediate piers. The jacking/move cost would probably be on the order of $30-40,000, and a new basement probably about $40-50,000 - rough ballpark, though I have been involved in some 1000-1500SF single story jobs that went for under $70,000 total. I have been involved in a fair number of these type jobs - and the way the numbers come out, if there is room on the property to move the house, it is almost always nearly as cheap or cheaper to build an equivalent square footage (basement plus ground level) addition rather than add a basement under the house, and that way your new footage is half above ground so worth more on resale, plus you do not lose use of the house for a month or two. Second cheapest is usually sliding house to a new foundation, if property is large enough to do this - though house is totally cut off from utilities for a week to three. Most expensive, and usually only done in tight city environments or with full 2 story or higher houses, is adding the foundation in place, though your utility interruptions should be on the order of hours at a time rather than days or weeks. Talk to an architect - I think you will quickly lean towards the addition option rather than adding a basement - it is just too expensive to deepen foundations in most cases, plus you WILL get cracking in the house and possible water and sewer pipe problems in a move/underpinning job, which is not the case with an addition. This become more likely the case since you want to add 8 feet off the back of the home anyway - so why not just enlarge the addition and do it all that way - MUCH simpler, and MUCH less disruption of your life, and you get much higher resale return on your investment.
Unfortunately this is not something you will easily resolve; and even if you were to win, the amount of time and funds spent will probably exceed the cost of the actual repair.

Each state has different rules on what "as-is" means, but almost all use the term when it comes to realestate sales.  At two years, you are facing a hurdle that any issue could be the result of new conditions, acceptable wear / settlement, etc.  Has there been any changes in the area? (New house built next door, new addition, earthquake, flooding, etc?)

While you may have been given a home warranty with the purchase (do check your sales paperwork to see if there is any warranty and what it covers for how long) the house is sold to you as-is; it is your responsibility to raise concerns prior to taking over the house, so going back two years later is a huge up hill batle.

The home inspector is also going to be found faultless, as their reports almost always have words like "consult with an expert. . ." after each report section and they have disclaimers for missed items, etc. I got certified as a home inspector and was surprised at just how little they actually require you to know to become an inspector. They are really just an extra pair of eyes to help inexpereinced home owners look where most people don't look or go.  You even mention that the repair work was well masked, so you didn't notice it until you began looking for it.  A good inspector might have caught it, but you won't win any court cases proving yours wasn't good enough.

The Seller will claim that any foundation issues were fixed and resolved, which is why they marked "No" on the foundation issue section.  They fixed it; so it was no longer an issue.  If it came back, that is a new issue.  You and I know this is bogus, but to win in court you have to prove intent; and the builder can easily show they thought it was fixed.  Or, they might even be able to claim they were unaware - the repairs were from the previous owner, and were hidden so well HE and YOU didn't notice them.

So the next step is to meet with your home insurance agent.  As I mentioned above, if there have been any enviromental changes (a new house next door could have changed the underground water table flow or pressures, for example) you may be covered.  Even if there are no issues, you still may have a policy that allows for major repairs to be covered after a certian cost threshold, etc.  You'd be surprised at what your home owners insurance covers - find out first; they might have in house or low cost engineers who will do the initial inspection, etc.  They also will provide advice on your home sale; if they think you have a case against the Seller.

Best of luck on this issue.  Make sure any solution you pay for solves the cause (Stress on the wall), and doesn't just fix the results (cracks).


Foundation Repair reviews in Asheville


It went very well and I'm extremely pleased with the results. I got about 5 bids for the job and 's was the lowest. I'm sometimes nervous about taking the lowest bid but after and I talked over the scope of the project, and what I needed to have done, I felt like he was the right guy to ...More hire. 's crew was headed by , who was very considerate and took the time to explain what the crew was doing and make sure it met my expectations for the job. and were the other two who worked on the house and they were all very nice guys. It took the guys a little over a week to complete the job and the results are excellent. My floors are level and feel very solid. I'm really glad I hired and I feel like I got a great deal for the money.
- Dylan L.

Throughout the process that was curtailed at times due to unusual winter weather Mr. kept us informed as to progress and consulted us when problems arose. All the other individuals he brought in, such as the excavator, mason and siding provider were professional, courteous and efficient. The project is nearly complete, the yard ...More cleaned up, lawn reseeded and the excavated dirt moved to expand our driveway.. We are optimistic that the flooding problem has been alleviated. We would highly recommend , Inc. The estimates were reasonable considering the unknown issues. is knowlegable, gracious and in every way a gentleman and a pleasure to work with on such complex problems.
- L. Heather Y.

Rod arrived on time, inspected the crawl space, as well as the exterior of my home. He provided several helpful suggestions for making drainage improvements when I add onto my house. He was very professional, competent and I would hire him again.
- Deborah A.

I first met in February, 2013 when he evaluted my driveway drainage problems and submitted an estimate for grading and preparing a new driveway. While his bid was lower than the company I chose, I based my decision on their surface because I felt it would better match my neighbors and fit in with the neighborhood better. When ...More I called to tell him that I had decided to go with another contractor and gave my reasons, he asked who I had chosen. When I gave the name of this company, HE WAS SO VERY GRACIOUS and told me that he had seen their work and that I would be happy with the result.
So, when I decided to have foundation work done, I didn't even consider having anyone else do the work. First, Mr. has a degree in engineering, so he understands what he is doing on a technical level. Second, I believed him to be and my experience is, that he is an honest person of high standards and a quality human being.
As the work proceeded, he educated me in what he was doing, the materials chosen for the job and the reasons for choosing them. He informed me of any changes to the work that were required by conditions that he encountered. He also went out of his way to show me details of my house's construction. He worked very diligently, finished the job in the time he had estimated, and cleaned up and cleared away any debri.
I highly recommend him!
- Barbara K.

Our experience was better than great! Seriously...he and all his crew and all subs that he recommended were punctual, on budget and professional. His work was excellent and on several occasions his suggestions of a minor change here or there was always the right way to go. We had expected our first floor re model including a full new kitchen would drag ...More on and on. was on top of the
schedule and we never found ourselves waiting on something that wasn't thought of or ordered. Not only would we use him again....we already have plans to do so and would not consider using anyone else.
