"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 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.

"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 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?

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.

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 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.

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.
