"It was horrible. They didn’t do what they said they would do. They left all the dirt, rocks, and old clay tile in my front yard. They didn’t " the house up when they moved the foundation. The joist didn’t have anything under it. They kinked the water pipe and broke the valve that was on the street.

-Gary B.

"Our only complaint is that the assessment wasn't strictly "independent" as the only service-provider to which the technician would provide the report" was a single home foundation company. We thought we'd get a report that we could then do with what we want. While I think we would have gotten a report, it seemed like a forgone conclusion we would have had repairs suggested in it performed by the one company. Seeing as there were no recommended repairs and the technician was willing to provide the report to us that substantiated that recommendation, we were happy with the services provided.

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).


Foundation Repair reviews in Kansas City


Good to know there are still honest contractors out there. We requested an evaluation / bid regarding some cracks we had in a corner of our basement. The company rep, did a quality assessment of our situation and was very informative when describing the problems, the extent of the issues and how their company could address ...More similar concerns. He was very knowledgeable, professional and polite. Much to our liking (and maybe a bit to our surprise) he recommended waiting a year and then reassess to see if the problem was any worse before taking any action. I am sure there are contractors out there that may have tried to lead us down a different path. Pretty refreshing. And, the estimate was free!
- William F.

The schedule was impacted by all the rains we had for the past several months, (certainly not their fault) but kept calling and updating me on the expected date to start. They were great to do business with and the workmanship is excellent. .
- Rufus Y.

They did a great job. There was some leakage still after their service but that may be attributable to abnormally high amounts of rain fall this spring and summer. They came out right away to fix the problem and are coming out again to fix another. The company is very responsive in backing up their warranty.
- Ronald G.

As they described it. They repair is still dry. However there were 2 minor places where the wall meets the floor that have a little seepage. Their representative said they would take care of it as a service repair as soon as it dried. Still seeping.
- Harold O.

Appointment for evaluation and estimate was 1 week from initial call.
First available appointment for repair was 10 days after evaluation and estimate.
Coupon on Angie's List was used.
Technicians were about 20-25 minutes late, as they first went to the billing address instead of the service address, but they finally made it. ...More Both were very polite and professional, however, only one spoke a little English which made discussion regarding the work being performed somewhat difficult, but not a big deal. Process performed was not as had been discussed with initial sales associate, but later determined it was best for the situation and ultimately it all worked out. Process took less than 2 hours. Technicians left no mess other than a few mud stains one left on the carpet from their muddy boots. All in all, very happy with the work and !
- Jane G.

was fabulous! Very patient and offering of suggestions I could do on my own. He didn't try to sell me something I didn't need, but offered other vendors who would be better suited for my needs. Can't say enough positive things about his professionalism!
- Melanie B.

Most of the time my basement is dry, but a couple times it flooded during heavy rains. I thought it might be due to a leak in the foundation, so I bought the Big Deal to get a professional evaluation. To my relief, however, he said I probably just had to do some caulking around my kitchen door and siding where it met the concrete stoop. He told ...More me exactly how to do the caulking, and what kind to get. I did the caulking and I've had no more basement floods.
- Clarice G.

The company never contacted me inspite of notifying Angie's List so I am calling my bank and getting my money back

I guess they have enough business
