"We brought in to get everything "structural" done in the crawlspace to prepare for a complete remodel of the first floor of our" home. 's crew did the job. They showed up on time daily and worked nonstop until the job was complete, finishing the job well within the slated time frame. The entire crew was extremely knowledgeable and made us aware of everything they came across. even went the extra mile to add some extra support under the hearth of our fireplace and patch up an ugly crack that had formed over the years. They cleaned up thoroughly after the job, and we even got a "handcrafted" saw horse from . A great experience to say the least. Falcon does a fantastic job.

"A great company to work with and they specialize in crawlspace issues. Owner did the initial inspection and understood our need to complete" the work quickly. After explaining in detail the work that needed to be done, he sent two crews to complete all the work in one day. This is a very customer focused company from the owner, office staff and crews. in the office kept me updated on schedule and pricing. The guys doing the work Jamario, , , Nick and all were friendly and professional. They did a great job and cleaned up before leaving. They also photographed their work for my records. I am completely happy with the work and with meeting a great company to work with.

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.

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).

During the initial inspection there was an area that was unable to completely be reached due to the height (or lack of height) of the floor. However, they were the ONLY FIRM that tried to access the area and were able to partially crawl back there and make recommendations. and spent about an hour under ...More the house making certain they checked every area.. During our initial meeting they made certain to explain (and show me the working drawings they made) exactly what needed to be done and how the work would be completed. The work started when they promised. However, they ran into conditions that they were not able to see on initial inspection (after they dug out the soil in order to access the area) so the work took longer to complete, but the original quote did not change. Everyone who worked on the site was knowledgeable, professional and courteous. The crew leader, , reported in each morning and explained what they would be doing that day and before they left explained what they had done. If something arose that was unexpected he touched base and explained what changed and what they would have to do to repair it and make certain I understood what was happening. Everyone in the office was attentive from the initial contact to the final request. Pictures 'before and after' were sent to me. I am so glad I found this firm. They treated me and my home with care and respect. I am convinced now that my house will stand for another 95 years! And, their work is guaranteed, and will transfer to the new owners if and when the house is sold. I do not hesitate to refer and Structural Repair to anyone who requires their services.

My husband and I had noticed that the floor in our kitchen/pantry area seemed uneven. We have an older home and expected some "settling' to happen, but this seemed extreme. The flooring was lower in some places than others. We had several companies give us an estimate and decided to go with . They had noticed that per ...More inspection codes, we did not have the correct number of piers under our home. We also were missing a double joist under one of the walls. We scheduled a date for having the repairs made. It did take a little longer to complete than originally quoted, but that was due to the inspector not arriving in time for them to continue any repairs on the first day. There is a definite improvement in how the floor looks and "feels" when you walk on it. While there is still some unevenness in a few select spots, this in fact does seem to be due to the age of the house and normal settling. There is no comparison in how the floor looks and feels now, from the way it was before.
