"We paid our $49 Angie's list price to have this company come and give us a structural engineering report on our foundation for the sale of our home. The website" says they are licensed structural engineers. They said for the $49 we would get a 15 point inspection report. They came out, looked under the house, but sent a quote to do the repairs instead of a report. When we called back to say we needed the actual report to present to the buyer, we were told they are NOT actually licensed engineers, and could not provide this report. We then had to hire AN ACTUAL structural engineer at an additional cost to give us a report. Just a horrible case of false advertising!! DO NOT ask these people for a structural engineering report!

-Wes P.

"The contractor showed up on time, was courteous and gave me incredibly honest feedback on another contractor's work that I hired outside of Angie's List." It was very helpful to me for peace of mind and assurance of what work had been done (or not done) for the rate that I paid. We also discussed future possibly of additional needs once we save the funds.

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 Memphis


I took a vacation day on the 5th to be there to get them started. At 9:15, I had to call to check on the work crew and was told that I wasn't even on the schedule until the 19th. Another job canceled, so they made it after all. The installers spent about three hours working under the house and supposedly finished. They couldn't level out ...More all of the front bathroom without doing another bedroom too, which wasn't in the estimate. The master bedroom was stabilized and the center of the room seemed level. After the crew left, my wife noticed that the right side of the MBR still sloped, so I checked the level and it wasn't close. I checked the master bathroom and it wasn't leveled either. I called Redeemers and scheduled for them to return on Friday 1/9.
They called on Thursday and came that afternoon. The guy spent an hour under the house and found that it would take several more and a lot more labor to level the bedroom, and he couldn't reach the bathroom area. He asked to come back on Friday with someone that could get to the bathroom.
On Friday, they showed up when promised and after a half hour, they came out saying that there were structure issues under the bathroom that would prevent them doing anything to level it. I was really upset about paying for a lot of work that failed to accomplish what I hired to get done, so the guys put their heads together and figured out a way to get the master bathroom leveled, but they would need to send out the installation crew on Monday to do the work.
On Monday 1/12, the installation crew showed up and were able to get the shower closer to level, but it still isn't level enough to drain completely.
I needed the master bath leveled, the master bedroom stabilized and leveled, and the front bathroom leveled, and I was lead to believe that this company could accomplish it with their plan and at the estimated cost. I got a stabilized MBR, but they came up short with the rest.
- Daniel D.

The workers were prompt and worked hard digging out the grass and leveling out the ground to pour the concrete. The second day the concrete was laid. They worked till about 6:30 pm, and they had guesstimated earlier in the day that they would be done by 4:00. Around 6:00 pm I told them I had some people coming over at 7:00pm. They cleared out by ...More 6:30. I thought they might be back to finish cleaning up the next day or so, but I think they were finished. However there was still a lot of water and sand left on the sidewalk and the end of the driveway too. I emailed them asking them to clean it up more thoroughly, and I got a fast response saying they would be by the next morning to clean up better. In the email it was also mentioned that they were very sorry and were short on trucks at that time.
Two men came by the next day and spent a long time cleaning up. One was apologetic.
The finished concrete was not evenly mixed. One half had pea gravel mixed in well. The other half had wide areas of concrete without pea gravel. It is slanted well and seems to drain rain well.
- Sue Anne T.

The roof leaked the very first time it rained after the job was completed. One of the reasons we were given for the leaks was that it rained. Isn't rain one of the main reasons you get a roof? We tried numerous times to get it repaired or replaced and the owner told us to him. He went on to say that it wasn't going ...More to do any good since he had closed the company and reopened under a different name. They try to distance themselves from the former Roof Redeemers but they are in the same building and now call themselves . How likely is it that two companies with redeemers in there name would be in the same building?
- Scott C.

It did not go. And I can only guess at the date. It has been some time ago.
Here is what happened: I contacted Redeemers, someone came and gave an estimate, later I called Redeemers, said I did want to get this work done if we could plan a date for the work to begin. I was told by the agent that he would have to check his calendar and get back ...More to me.
I never heard from Redeemers again. My feeling is: if you ’t get clarity and cooperation with a contractor as you are contracting and are willing to pay them money, you probably will not get cooperation later if problems arise.
I moved with another company and am very satisfied with the work.
- Patrick F.

Went very well. Explained what they were doing, what they found, and if there was any additional costs (which was only $15.00) from the estimate. Truly professional and courteous. Completed the work ontime as promised.
- Sherry A.

Called for estimate. Very thorough inspection. Detailed estimate provided. Work done as scheduled, and completed timely. Cleaned up work area afterward. Very pleasant to deal with throughout.
