"The project went very well. Initially I had requested times via Angie's list to have
come and assess the work needed. When he didn't respond I simply" contacted him through his web site contact info and he responded immediately. This would be the only suggestion I'd make is to contact him directly and not rely on the Angie's list "suggested dates/time" request.
provided pictures of the foundation situation and explained very clearly what would be needed to address the issues. His price seemed reasonable and fair so I immediately engaged him. He was clear it would be a couple of weeks before he could complete the work as he was just starting a large job. I followed up with him several days later and we agreed on the date to do the work. He arrived on the agreed upon date, at the time promised, had the necessary resources to complete the job that day. He corrected another issue he found as part of the original scope of work at no additional cost. I highly recommend
if you have foundation issues.

"The house had multiple foundation and support problems due to bad construction. We initially hired a big-box company that advertises regularly on TV. Their work left us in one big" mess which resulted among other things in over-lifting which caused extensive interior wall cracking and possibly even more structural damage. I'm guessing they were so hard to communicate with because they didn't know what they were doing. GUB to the rescue. Although it was expensive, the owner and every employee was knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. They corrected much of the problem of the previous company and additionally corrected several severe problems which had not been addressed. They were timely, efficient, and left the premises in better shape than when they arrived. Highly recommend.

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.

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.

I hope I am reading the question correctly.  By added work, I assume you are speaking of change orders or additional work as opposed to the original work he contracted for? I think there are very few occasions that it would be wise to pay a contractor in full up front for work on the main contract that you are hireing him for. BUT, It is quite common that a general contractor will charge for (and should be paid), all change orders 100% upfront, as changes are typically very disruptive to a building process. Charging up front is somewhat to discourage changes as well as to not make the builder deal with chasing after money at least if he has to work quickly to modify his schedule due to the change at hand. It should have been spelled out in his contract with you prior to the start of the job that that was the agreement for how changes would be handled.

 

Some unscrupulous customers can also contract for work that they don't actually have the money for and then it puts the builder at a disadvantage at the end of the project when trying to collect. so basically doing a change is a courtesy so paying changes up front is part of reciprocating and extending courtesy back.

 

Also, check with some of his references and referral customers and find out if they too had the same experience and see if it worked out ok for them.

Everything was pretty good, Except our rep was a little too pushy. We were selling the home and need a little work done, Did not ever intend on eating under the house, I did not need anything that clean or fancy. But overall would be a great thing for the right person, Just not us..

was very good at keeping me informed about what was going on...first about when they would begin working and then about the progress that was being made on a daily basis. The job required some access to the interior but the crew was scrupulous about not tracking dirt into the house and cleaning up behind themselves. The quality of the work was first class. In addition,

They cleaned up each day and hauled off all debris at the completion of the work;. All work was completed on schedule.

He was punctual and did the job quickly and professionally. He informed me that the amount of plastic that he would be putting down for the price would not cover the entire crawl space. He provided a reasonable quote on what it would cost to cover the remaining crawl space. Did not have it done as most of the other area was still okay and I was in the process of selling the house and moving to another state. Was very happy with his honesty and work ethics.

Fantastic. From the first phone call to the end of the job, these guys are great. I will say the only negative was originally when I called them, I placed a call to
