We hired Capital to repair a major foundation issue. A six month, $100 K kind of issue. They seemed like a reputable company and we felt like we had chosen the right folks at first, but their unprofessionalism the last three months has us regretting our decision.

On the fifth month, we asked them to give us a date they would be finished because we were living in an apartment and our lease was ending. They gave us September 15. Almost as soon as they gave us this date, they seemed stressed for our payment. (We weren't late on our payment, but a worker was sent to my husband's work to pick up the check and the check was immediately cashed. This seemed a little desperate.) It is September 8th. We have gone by the house a few times a day and have not seen anybody and there has not been any progression in the work for six weeks. When we call, email or text, they rarely respond. When they do respond, they lie about the activity at the house. "There's a crew out there now." "I promise

will call you." etc.

Now, they have given us a date of "sometime in October." Our apartment has already been leased. We don't have a place to live and with ACL

coming, the

for hotels is impossible.

Do yourself a favor and learn from our mistakes. These guys just cash your checks and leave you homeless.

They were great except for two things. First and most important, they missed a poorly supported pair of beams under the bathroom floor. The carpenter discovered the problem when he was basically rebuilding the whole bathroom area. Two beams met with nothing under the seam; they should have seen that and set a pier there. Granted, it was much easier to see after the bathroom floor was taken out, but

should have found it first. The floor inside the house sagged a little right around that point. And I called
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
to come look specifically at the severe mess of the walls and beams around the bathroom where old water damage had occurred. He said it was fine, but he never actually went under the house. He kneels at the
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
and shines a bright little flashlight at the beams, but that isn't good enough. I went under there many times to remove the old wiring. If I could do it, so could he. If the carpenter hadn't been so thorough in repairing the bathroom walls and floor, that floor would not have been stable. It was a problem waiting to happen. I said at the outset that I wanted to find out everything that might possibly go wrong and fix it now while the skirt was off. This was part of a major whole house rehab. The second thing had to do with team management. My growing scrap metal pile, including a bath tub and a broken down metal shed, vanished on the foundation crew's last day. I don't think it's a coincidence. That tells me that they don't pay their guys fairly enough and don't supervise them carefully enough, either. Otherwise, the work was good. My piers are beautiful. The stucco crew was excellent. So, a mixed review. The carpenter would give them a C at best, but they did replace 23 piers and do a good job of that. Hire them, but get under your house and inspect your own beams with a good strong light.

, arrived on time and performed an inspection of the foundation of my house. He inspected the slab from the exterior and then took measurements of the relative elevations of the slab from numerous locations in all rooms of my house. He produced a floor plan diagram which displayed all of the variations in elevation throughout the house. He discussed three different methods of foundation repair and which method he would recommend for my house. Later in the same day, he emailed me an estimate for those repairs. Although it's obvious that my foundation has been shifting as evidenced by sticking doors, cracks radiating from doorways and windows, cracks in masonry and cracks where drywall is pullingapart at the seams,
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
was very honest in explaining that at this time no repairs were actually necessary. It appears that the expansive soils under my house have been flexing the slab and producing the visible damage over a period in excess of 20 years, but at this time it has returned to a relatively level position with the maximum variation in elevation being less than an inch. The estimate for repairs would be for the purpose of stabilizing the slab to prevent any future movement. I am so happy with the total experience I had with this company. The other review that I copied was exactly to the point. Hard to find good honest service providers these days. This company is a rare gem. You will not go wrong with

I was very happy with the work of
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
and his team. They were not the cheapest of the quotes I received, but they offered a solution that seemed to offer a longer-term solution, rather than put a band-aid on the problem.

called every evening with an update on the progress, and the work crew was always hard at work. I'll tell you working under a house in 90+ degree heat all day does not sound like fun too me, but these people took their work seriously! The were efficient, courteous and didn't seem to take any shortcuts.
Overall very pleased with the results. The house is definitely in better shape, and the parts of the house that felt "trampoline like" are more solid than ever! I also don't have to use shims anymore to keep my furniture from leaning! Sweet!

was great! On time, called ahead, informative, and clearly honest. After assessing the condition of my current foundation and hearing my questions and concerns, it turned out I didn't really need a full, or even partial repair. As it turned out I just need some better water diversion, away from the house, in a particular place. Anyway, it was a pleasure to deal with someone who was honest and wasn't just trying to sell me something. Hat's off! If you need foundation work I'd definitely start off talking to these guys!

’s proposal was to wait a few months and have him come out again to take another set of measurements and then decide if I wanted to invest in the stabilizing repairs.

’s demeanor was friendly, courteous and professional. He took the time to explain everything he was doing and answered all questions to my satisfaction. I was completely satisfied with his performance and would happily do business with him and

In-depth foundation inspection including a diagram of the home's
foundation with any variations in elevations of the foundation. Very
through. The representative went over any drainage issues around the
entire foundation and possible solutions where necessary. Angie's
members also would receive a $500 credit towards any necessary repairs.
Great inspection.

It was Angie list offered "Special" & supposedly thorough foundation report for $50. with follow-up details.
On spec ial Buy Page - they requested 3 times that were suitable in future for homeowner; then Call & none of these offered.
From time appt set (when they called to report delay, I was OK, luckily my calendar allowed additional time to wait for serviceman) to final request for promised detail report - eventually I was furnished all but it took my time doing "follow up" to complete. I won't be utiliing Angie list special anytime soon.
