"I attempted to contact AB May as as I have heard their advertisment on the radio for many years. Their website mad it look easy by just sending an e-mail or leave" a message and they would get right back with you. I never heard one word from them, ever. I a the same time contacted another bussiness who responded less than 5 minutes after I requested a quote. In less than one week I had a quote and they completed my work to a very high standard and at a resonable cost. I liked them I will not use AB May.

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.

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).

     There are two types of cracks in foudation walls, horizonal and vertical. The vertical is from settling and usually is not that bad a repair onec the settling stops or the cause is fixed. A horizontal crack in my opinion worse unless it happened right as the house was built and it was backfilled incorrectly. That should have been fixed at that time though. Horizontal cracks are a sign of lateral pressure due to either a water problem, improper wall sizing or a combination of these. In these conditions I have always felt complete excavation outside the wall and reconstruction is your best approach with the proper sized block or concrete wall with buttresses as needed.

     You mention the future sale of the home and I would think the total replacement would be the best way as it will not leave any red flags. The steel plating would point to the problem and I can just think of all that would go through a buyers mind. Little things like how long will it be before the plate rusts out and needs to be replaced, even though it would probable last a long time.

     I would think you should spend the money on a consult with a structural engineer and get a written report on the problem and his recommendations as to the best repair. It will help with any future sale of the home. Without drawings the consult should be less than $500. I would bet he would recommend total replacement.

My initial contact with the receptionist was pleasant and efficient and we set up and appointment for
Kansas City Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
to come by my home. I also sent them a copy of the engineers report that I had.
Grant came at the schedule time and did a review of my home, listening to and answering my questions, and making recommendations as we went....More /> He gave his opinion and comments on the engineers recommendations. He said he would send a report with a bid on some of the work that I might have done.
I received the report promptly, and it was clear and easily understandable.
At this point I have opted not to go ahead with any work, but may use them in the future.

All went well! The employee that came out for the estimate was running a couple of hours behind, but he called early in the day to let me know and called again later in the afternoon to give me an update. I very much appreciated the notice! The crack repair a few weeks later went smoothly! No complaints!

I scheduled an appointment for 10:00AM on Sept. 11th to have two cracks in my foundation looked at.

called me that morning and told me he was at a home inspection that was running late and asked if I could reschedule for the following day. I told him no problem, I appreciated the call and we rescheduled for 10:00AM the following day. That is the last time I heard from the company.

did not show up or call - that was three weeks ago. Very disappointing considering the A rating on Angie's List. The contact I did have with the office staff to set up the appointment and the telephone conversation with

to reschedule was very professional so I am greatly disappointed that I never heard from the company again.

Provider representative showed up promptly at the agreed upon time. Repair took about an hour. After a moderate rain the next day, there was no sign of water leakage. The explained what he had done and stated that he would return if there was a problem.

I very pleased with their work. They came a day early, after they called us to make sure it was ok to do so, and dug out the holes for the piers. On the day of the work, they were on time and ready to go to work when they said so. I am very pleased with their work, there was a time constraint because of putting in a new driveway and they met it beautifully. Only complaint was that they said they would put down plywood over the grass to keep the backhoe from damaging the lawn. They did not put down the plywood and the lawn around the work area was damaged pretty good. The salesman said they would send me a check for the cost of grass seed, but as of this date, 9-16, I haven't seen it yet.

Spartan did an excellent job. They were very respectful of our neighbors property, which they had to walk across in order to get to our site. Their analysis of the job aligned with what our independent foundation engineer had told us. They were on time and hard working as well as being very good about addressing any questions or concerns I had for them as the project commenced. Foundation repair is stressful and expensive, but if you have to do it, I highly recommend

for their knowledge and professionalism. Also, having gotten multiple bids on the project we felt confident that they were reasonably priced. Thank you
