" and his crew did an excellent job. He was very easy to work with, upfront about everything, and very knowledgable about how to waterproof" crawlspaces. we've been having issues with water in our crawlspace and I didn't know what to do about it. I had another company look at it and they just wanted to encapsulate the whole thing without actually addressing the issue of why water was coming in there in the first place. explained the reasons why water was getting in there and gave a quote that was cheaper than the other guy (and that made more sense), which actually sounded like it was going to fix the problem. They fogged the crawl space to mold spores, wiped down all the rafters, installed french drains around the perimeter of the crawl space, drilled holes in the lower foundational blocks to relieve water that was pooling in the blocks (which drained into the french drains). The drains were then routed to a sump pump they installed. They then sealed the entire crawls space using insulation and a heavy duty and high quality vapor . After that they installed piping in the front of the house to route water that was pooling there around to the side. and his crew were very nice and punctual for the 3 days that it took them to do the install. We requested that when they fogged the house, they do it at 9am to coordinate with my wife's schedule, and they did so without issue. After the job was finished he came back out to my house to ensure I was happy with it. They left my house in better condition than when they arrived and I commented to my wife that the crawl space looked clean enough to sleep in. I would definitely recommend this company to anybody who needs similar work done.

" was at my house to do an assessment of my foundation and arrived promptly at the time we agreed upon. He was friendly, professional, and" very knowledgeable. After looking at the foundation he determined that it didn't need any work. I appreciated his honesty. He pointed out one problem with a brick wall that runs along sidewalk by my house that is cracking and shifting. told me it was the result of water from the downspout collecting under the wall and suggested that I attached an 8 foot the tube to run the water away from the wall. After it has had a couple of months to dry out the repair is something can repair for me. I am attaching the tube to the downspout and will call them in the fall to make the repair.

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).

Very well. Workers were on time and very professional. Time table was met. Workers cleaned up after job was performed.
- Daniel A.

In both instances named above, Will and his crew did excellent work. They inspected the situations and gave us clear and understandable explanations of what they proposed doing, what our options were, and the costs involved. Their crew did excellent work, professionally and congenially. Even today, several years after the High Country project, the space ...More looks as if it were done yesterday. All of the improvements, including equipment, work as planned. They do a good annual inspection when requested. We recommend them without hesitation.
- Leon S.

and his crew did an excellent job in cold rainy conditions. They built the concrete piers the first day, and returned the next day to the joists up and . was very careful of my floors when he had to enter the house both when they started the job and when ...More he made periodic inspections as they raised the . All the cracks in my walls closed when they raised the , and they made many in-process inspections to make sure that all problems were solved. Outside of these inspections, I was not inconvenienced in any way.
- William S.

Cook, a general contractor, owns " " and works out of both the Triad (Greensboro, High Point and - ) and Triangle ( , , , Chapel Hill...) areas.
I asked ...More Mr. if he could fix some problems in my small home in order for me to turn it into a rental property. (I was a single mom and had purchased a 2-bedroom house before I remarried and we moved into my husband's house.) Mr. offered a free estimate that was easy to understand, thorough and reasonably priced. Mr. even helped me work out an agreeable payment plan ( - ) that enabled me to do the work.
Mr. began work in February of 2011 and the house was ready to rent mid-March. I was able to get my house rented for more than my original rent rate by April 1st! The response was overwhelming! Several couples who were interested in renting the house said it was one of the most beautiful rentals they had seen. I had 2 renters in line in case the first couple did not qualify!
Mr. did a really quality job bringing out period details (the house was built in 1947) in his choices of neutral paints for the walls and moulding, painstakingly repairing and cleaning the mozaic tile floor (tiny, square tiles in an intricate black and white pattern) in the bathroom, and fine-tuning the landscaping to help the boxwoods and pre-established garden stand out along the main walk.
You always hope you can find a "service provider" that will treat your project with care and detail. I know I have a hard time choosing someone from a list in the yellow pages, internet searches, etc. that I can trust to do the whole job, a good job, not overcharge me, and someone you can count on. I have complete faith in Mr. and after seeing what quality work looks like. Also, knowing that Mr. can be a resource for all things home improvement-related, I won't go searching again!
- Myah D.

They did quality work and were very professional. They were punctual and reasonably priced. They noticed a leak under the washing machine and informed me on time. It was not their job, but still they were proactive and helped me from facing a bigger problem. I liked their services and will use the same in future.
- Victoria M.
