"They responded quickly. They were wonderful! I had a great discussion with the technician and they provided an estimate. The estimate was expensive ($17,000) so" I am holding off for now and doing more research. They were very professional and seemed conscientious though. I have recommended them to others.

"Overall very good experience. Quickly got the appointment setup,
showed up on time and quickly made an evaluation, and really spent the time" to go over the results, answer my questions and concerns. Very professional.
does endorse a particular type of
for house leveling which I do not have much knowledge of and need to research. I only had the inspection done this time.

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.

Foundation Repair, Concrete - Pouring & Repair

Pouring a foundation is the first critical step in building your home, so make sure you know what to look for if you're hiring a custom builder or doing a portion of the work yourself. Here are some foundation basics.

Contractors say homeowners with this trait are the most satisfied with home improvement projects.

Relying solely on measurements to determine the condition of a foundation often leads to risks incurring further damage to a home, says Granott. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Dale W. of Boones Mill, Virginia.)

Measuring your foundation for levelness alone is not enough to determine if your foundation needs repair. A foundation expert will evaluate all the factors.

Angie's Answers

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 Austin


We had so many problems with
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
Stringer at
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
Design + Build) that it is hard to summarize it without writing a mini-
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
. We had a TERRIBLE experience and if I could give him 0 stars I would. Our project was left unfinished, with all kinds of errors, and damage to our property. We had to hire another contractor just to fix the mistakes
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
made and to get the project completed.
We met
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
at a home show in
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
and they were charming and seemed capable. (we had been given
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
’s name by another builder who “knew” him through the builders association – but hadn’t worked with him - so we went to
meet him to see if he was a good fit for our project.)

At the home show,
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
touted his designer and that she would create designs for us. Which never actually happened because she was “too busy” per
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
. Did I mention that his designer is actually his wife and she had a full
time job with a medical company we later learned from
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
The problems and red flags with
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
surfaced very early on however we trudged forward thinking that, in the end, it would be a successful project. I actually documented every single day of the project in writing (and many photographs) for my own use – what
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
said would happen, who actually showed up (or didn’t show up) to do work, how long they were here, what they
accomplished (or didn’t accomplish), the errors that were made, the damage that was done, the items that were missing, etc.
First warning signs should have been
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
not documenting anything and then forgetting every single conversation we ever had. And the accusing us of changing things on him. And
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
not showing up (sometimes weeks at a time) to inspect the work of his sub-contractors – instead he told us they were ”texting” him details and photos. Really, you can’t find the time
to stop by and inspect your jobs and ensure your subs are doing a good job? Instead telling us you were kept in the loop via text messages with photos from your subs? In a small town like
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
when you have another job less than 8
miles away per your tile guy who was working both jobs? (and who told us that you had loads of problems at that job as well).
We then experienced
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
doing some of the work himself and doing it with major errors – framing out of alignment, repeated mis-measurements, moving plumbing fixtures without plumber’s knowledge (which then required a complete tear out of sheet rock by plumber to fix and left us with different textured walls) and many other problems.
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
and his team did not show up for days and then weeks at a time due to other jobs then accused us of delaying the project. When we asked him to give us examples of the supposed changes we had made he couldn't and didn't.
Damage to our property by his people that was never addressed – his tile guy dropped a box of heavy bathroom tile on our living room hardwoods and damaged them but never replaced the flooring or made any attempts to fix the damage. Damaged our deck when they performed tile cutting work outside, broke our alarm system sensors.
His people took some of our tools – perhaps by accident – but when we asked for them we never got a response or our tools returned. Still do not have them.
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
left the project unfinished. Sub floor exposed in closet, no closet doors, out of alignment sheet rock (we later learned he fired his sheet rock team after they did a terrible job at another property however he never fixed the crooked wall he left us with),
unfinished walls, hole in ceiling with insulation exposed, caulking job that we had to fix ourselves and on and on.
His tile guy constantly complained to us that he wasn't getting paid by
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
, he couldn’t pay his bills, his truck was being repossessed, etc. all while we had paid
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
directly for the work. His tile guy (who owns his own flooring and tile company) didn’t show up when he said he would, always asking us for money when the agreement was for us to pay
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
, complaining over and over about the stairs (didn’t you notice the stairs when you came to bid the project given that the project was clearly on the 2nd floor??), damaging our hardwoods and our deck and not fixing the damage, etc.
I could go on and on with more problems and details (remember when I said I documented it all?) however you get the gist.
We had to hire a reputable contractor to finish the job. And by the way, we found the reputable contractor through
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
’s plumber who saw first-hand the issues with
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
’s work and recommended someone else to us to get it done the right way.
I would advise that STEER CLEAR of
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
Stringer at
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked

contractors in
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
there is no need to work with this company.

- James P.

Prompt in showing up on time, preparing the bid, answering questions.
My house was almost 6 inches out of level from one corner to the diagonal corner. They came out at 8 AM on Tuesday, dug all the exterior holes and placed the steel piers. The next morning they came out and did the interior piers... carefully cutting a neat square in the vinyl flooring and rolling back the carpet. I did panic to see the sparks flying from them cutting thru the rebar in the concrete, but I was assured that it would not damage the walls, and it didn't. They proceeded to level the house and patch the interior holes. They don't put the flooring back as the concrete needs time to set. The exterior holes were filled and dirt leveled out ..You can barely tell they'd been there. In and out in 2 days. The only thing that I was a little unhappy about was when setting the piers on one corner of the house, it appeared they may have hit "resistance" a little sooner than expected and it jolted that corner of the house... that is the only room that has more cracks in sheetrock than I would have expected. The rest of the house...including the corner that was lifted almost 6 inches, did not show more than slight seam cracks...probably where cracks had been patched before. I was a little concerned about the shower that I had retiled only 6 months ago, but there appears to be no cracks in tile or grout there. As a side note, they disconnected the gas line for safety reasons... Check with your gas supplier before calling a plumber to reconnect. Tx Gas Service reconnected it without a problem. The cast iron drain lines were corroded, and didn't fare so well..although I'm wondering if that may have been partly the cause of the foundation problem in the first place.

They were very professional, did a thorough inspection, and arrived on time for the appointment. Furthermore, they were very responsive when we called, and they've been proactive about following up to make sure that we're okay. Ultimately, they got us going in the right direction.
- L Jane R.

The crew was great and the supervisor of the project and superintendent (Umberto) were very knowledgeable about the process and the work that was required to complete the job. Work began about 8 in the morning and ceased about 5 every evening. The supervisor was on site at all times. Even though he did not speak English and I do not speak Spanish, there was always a bilingual member of the crew available to translate. I felt very comfortable asking questions throughout the project. It took 8 calendar days to complete the work, from digging the holes to cleaning up the job site. It would have been quicker, but there was a rain day on Saturday,11/22/14. I had 5" of rain, all the holes filled with water, and each hole had to pumped out before work could begin again on the following Monday. Everyone was polite and professional at all times. I was very impressed with the pride people seemed to take in their work and doing a good job. My experience with the
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
Inspector, Nick, and conversations with
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
in the
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
office also left me feeling that they really wanted to help in any way that they could, not that they were just saying things to get my business.
When they started the leveling, done with
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
, I was upstairs. I heard the wall "crackling" and a crack shot out from a corner of the window and up the wall. I got up to go downstairs and the door to the room was stuck. I got the door open and after that I stood out of the way on the stairs, just watching the process. By alternately lifting different parts of the house, the doors stuck and unstuck and different parts of the house went up (or down). Jacking is done as a team, with one person loudly counting so that everyone can hear. Umberto went from one room to the other, checking to see how level each room was after individual raises. The process took a few hours.
There are cosmetic issues in my home as a result of raising the house. There are some cracks in the walls and I'm currently dealing with plumbing issues from leaking drain pipes under the slab. I'm dealing with the plumbing now so that my warranty for the leveling can be issued. They recommend that there be at least a 4-6 week wait to begin dealing with the cosmetic issues. The house will settle after the leveling. On the bright side, all my doors close and stay where ever you put them when they're open and I've closed windows that haven't closed in years. I would do it again, with
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
, in a minute.
- Pam B.

Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
is a wonderful contractor. Honest, hardworking, professional, courteous. If things don't go right, he fixes it. He has a professional group of subcontractors to call upon. Have worked with
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
for several years and would not hesitate to call upon him again.
- Brenda L.

The crew was here on time and were efficient. They didn't have to tear up the floor, which was a big plus. After their work, I could barely tell they had done the work on the outside, but in the inside cracks literally closed in some places. I went from over a 2" difference to almost totally level. Great work.
- Naomi T.

Overall I am very pleased with the foundation service performed by Mr.
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
. We had one side of our house lifted 1.5", and while other quotes we received noticed approximately the same issues and quoted around the same price,
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
also noticed that our chimney was leaning away from our house and we are so glad he did.
The experience of getting the project scheduled was a little tough, and the receptionist was all-business and no warmth, but the project was scheduled and completed on time and sooner than we were getting scheduling quotes from when asking other companies.
The reason our foundation was dropped was water running beside our house from rain runoff, and we selected
Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
because they also offer irrigation / water flow services. They cut a swale into our front yard and laid sod down so it would look good.
Overall I'm very happy with the services for the price we paid, and i feel confident that they will stand the test of time, especially with the 30 year guarantee.
I would recommend this company to other buyers.
- Christina M.

Austin Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
did measurements and drawings ...showed and explained why he did not feel there was any concern..may have a very little movement due to drought...too minimal tor need of repair. He gave me examples of what to look for in the future that would indicate a problem. I made the appointment because I had hairline crack in tile that appeared suspicious to me.
It was a pleasure
