"It seemed like there was not an inspection. He couldn't differentiate between a problem crack and normal crack. He didn't check the sump pump which he" said was part of the inspection. I felt like this was false advertising and more of a sales pitch. I got marketing materials but that was all I got for my money. I do not know any more about the condition of my house.

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

Many homeowners worry about the severity of foundation cracks in the basement.

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.)
Foundation Repair

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

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).

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.

quote was not the cheapest or the most expensive. It addressed all of the basement issues in a logical, well explained and illustrated fashion.
The actual job was completed to our satisfaction in a four day period. The crew was incredible. They arrived when they said they would. They minimized mess and the communicated effectively.
We are very happy with the completed work. For the first time in many years we have a dry and functional basement.

The company's project manager showed up on time, provided credible answers to all my questions, and provided a proposal with cost estimate for a solution to my foundation problem. Cost was in the middle ground of four proposals that I received. Because their schedule was relatively slow due to the time of year, the project manager offered to further discount the price of the services if I wanted to schedule services within 2-3 weeks of the date of his visit. There was no hard sell and the proposed solution appeared to be sound. This was one of four proposals that I obtained in order to compare and evaluate. For reasons not related to any of the companies that submitted proposals, I elected not to go ahead with the repair.

A sagging ranch, this young man made such an impression from the bid to the full completion. In 2015, it's hard to find professional, personable and HONEST. This company, and

personally, was both. I have no hesitation to say get a quote. Anything he missed, but needed, was added with no extra charge. There was no up-selling, and respect was apparent and consistent. A big job, the shoring up of a family home was easy when entrusted to this company and gentleman.

was very prompt. They were very professional and explained to my Seller the repair that needed to be done. They explained why they were using the piers they were using and what to expect during the repair. The Buyer was a little nervous about damage to the drywall, etc. that may occur during the repair, but

worked on our home and did a very professional job. They raised and stabilized our outside porch area which had sunk over the last 30 years. They also buried a drain line, to help keep water away from our house and basement, and raised sunken sidewalk areas. The workers were friendly and respectful and were quite skilled at their jobs. The team consisted of

Was told workers would arrive around 8:00 to 8:30; arrived right at 8:00. One worker wasn't sure there was enough clearance around the present pump to replace but, after a short conversation between the two workers, they figured out a way to accomplish. Workers were courteous and finished the projects by 4:30 or so. Work area was cleaned up nicely. Good explanation to me of how pump operates. Estimator (who was out the prior week) was also courteous and professional. Office staff was well organized, with several notices as to when the crew would arrive, etc. Estimator said the owner is a big Purdue fan, if that has any influence on the reader of this review!
