"I called at to come check out the foundation of my 100-year-old house. I'd noticed some new cracks in the plaster" walls in one area of the house and wanted to make sure nothing serious was happening. responded to my call within the day and made an appointment for two days later. I had to change the time the day before and he was easy to reach and accommodated my schedule. He was very professional and seemed quite knowledgeable. He identified the cause of the problem-- poor draining of a gutter downspout resulting in too much moisture in the ground, which caused a small crack in the foundation-- but advised that the crack was not big enough to warrant repairing. He assured me that it was fine to leave as-is and said that if we drain the water further away from the house, it should prevent any worsening of the situation. I was so relieved that we weren't going to need an expensive repair and he didn't even charge me for the visit! If I have any need for foundation work in the future, I will definitely be calling him.

"USS employee came on time, actually even early. He was very polite and explained everything that I wanted to know. He had to hand dig because there were electrical" wires buried under the ground where the support needed to go. He had to go at least 3ft down on a hot and humid day, but he got it done quickly and was on his way. The young man patched the cracks, so that I am unable to tell the difference between that and the original mortar. It was expensive but slightly less than a quote that I got from another company. I am very please with the work

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).

Overall I think they did a good job - the only complaint I have is that they originally said it would only take one day but they only sent 1 person out the first day which obviously wasn't enough. It ended up taking several days. Ultimately, I think they did a good job it just wasn't as quick and easy as they originally said.

They did a great job! Although I don't venture down to the crawl space, others that have gone down there (e.g. plumber) have made unsolicited comments on how good of a job was done. They have also come back to make adjustments as part of the engagement. Always accommodating. No hesitation in recommending this company!

It was very difficult to get them out for an estimate and to get return phone calls. Once onsite, the process was extremely thorough and the review of the estimate involved photographs and a thorough explanation of approach and costs. We had 3 estimates before providing another company.

First let me say I would recommend to anyone. This is the second time I've used them. The first time was on my home. I had 4 different companies come out and there inspector was very knowledgeable. I didnt get that salesman feeling. He actually knew what he was talking about. Mr. (inspector) gave ...More me the exact fix that the engineer gave me without knowing about report. The other 3 companies tried to over sale me by thousands of dollars. And my home was fixed Perfectly. Obviously they were my first choice when I had problems with my office building. Again I called out 2 other companies just for due diligence and had them all give me am estimate. And again mr. was very close to the engineers report and the other two were off with the proper fix and the cost. So I hired to repair my building and they fixed it perfectly along with curing my drainage issue in the rear of property that no one previously could accomplish. was a pleasure to work with. They kept we well informed and the office staff was top notch. I never felt comfortable turning over a check of that size before dealing with this company.

diagnosed my problem after a thorough look at my basement and the front of the house. He is very knowledgeable. He knew exactly what was wrong in less than 10 minutes. He told me it was a problem that would go away after the ice melted. I didn't need to hire anyone. He did not take a dime from ...More me. He was so respectful, kind, reliable, prompt, and honest!!!! I will DEFINITELY hire for ANY work I need done in the future!! Thanks, !!!

I had them out for an estimate for some cracks in brick. The representative told me I did not need the expensive work on my home as it was just normal settling of the house. He said he could sell me the company services since he worked on commission, but he could not, in good faith, tell me that my house needed their services at this time. His honesty ...More saved me a large expense on my home. In the future if I do need work, I will definitely call USS.

came out to do the quote. We needed to get the correct support for our crawlspace which had been neglected by the previous owners who used temporary on pieces of wood for support. I got a couple quotes from other contractors and companies but felt the materials were inferior.

To get the crawlspace ...More support installed, I needed to send the 40% deposit. We knew it was 4-6 weeks out for scheduling so I sent the deposit right away. After a week, I still hadn't heard so I called to see when it would be scheduled for. I was told the owner schedules the installs and he makes calls on Fridays. He never did call. So another week goes by and I called back, the receptionist checked and told me it appeared he penciled me in but did not have the time yet to call. They already had our money and if the boss is too busy to call the client to inform them of the install date then someone else should handle it. The owner eventually did call the week before the installation. Not sure I would even know the install date if I hadn't called.

The installation went well and the team of three were professional. I guess we expected the floor to be perfectly level but I understand there is only so much they can do. Our kitchen floor was slightly warped over the years from the lack of correct support so there is only so much you can do to correct it. It cost a pretty penny (even with a 10% discount) but we wanted steel support into cement pads that would last for years to come versus going cheap with wood supports.
