".The job went great, except that when it began, as with any project, when you start digging and moving things around, you find other things that you didn't" know were there. In our case, a drain pipe was found where a footing was supposed to go. let us know immediately and proposed a solution that worked around the drain line (much better than moving it) and provided an approved cost effective alternative to the original plan. , at our request, obtained City permits and coordinated inspections by City inspectors. A great job by all - workers, office staff, we are very pleased. we would use them again and recommend them.

-Chris C.

" responded quickly to our request for a quote. Finding a company that will work flat roofs with an existing foam roof was a challenge. We" had three contractors provide estimates. was competitive in pricing but was by far the most thorough in their work plan. We were impressed with their attention to detail. They were meticulous in their approach even though it cost them additional time. They thoroughly cleaned and repaired the existing roof, unplugging all drains. Then they applied an asphalt primer cover, followed by a fibered emulsion and then 4+ coats of white elastoweric. They always left the site clean. and were true professionals!

There are three major home repairs you have to do if you want to protect the value of your home. While they aren’t fun, you can’t put them off. See if you agree with these three unsexy home improvement projects you just have to do.

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 San Diego


responded to my email the very next day. I received a phone call. Unfortunately circumstances arose that pulled me away from this endeavor. Every phone call was pleasant and professional. I did manage to finally sit myself down to apologize and let them know I would have to post .
I definitely ...More do plan to use them when I am able to.
- Patricia A.

was great from first contact, providing a thorough assessment of what needed to be done with regard to the foundation, and more importantly, what didn't need to happen. Her quote was very reasonable and less than some we received.
The crew was amazing - polite, punctual, fast ... and cleaned the work site on a daily ...More basis.
The work was completed on time and appears solid and the home looks no the worse for wear after having a quarter of the foundation removed and replaced.
I would use Atlas again.
- Jeffrey S.

My husband and I were looking for a home and discovered a issue with the foundation during our home inspection. We needed a contractor to give us an assessment of the extent of the work that would need to be done to fix the foundation. I called , with , and he was fantastic. He spent a ton of time up ...More front speaking with me about what could be going on with the house, and then was able to come out the very next day to perform an inspection. This was crucial because we needed to make a decision on what we were going to do with the home quickly, and we were bumping up against the Thanksgiving holiday.
came out and performed a thorough slab and foundation inspection. He gave us a full run down of what we would need to do to properly fix the home, and spent all the time we needed to answer our questions and address our concerns.
Further, he even followed up with me after the inspection, when my husband and I had had time to discuss what we'd learned, gave us his opinion, and made himself available for any additional questions.
In a society where everyone always seems to be in a rush and hurrying to the next job, made us feel like we were his number 1 clients. Ultimately, we decided not to go through with the purchase of the home, but had we done so, we would have hired to perform the work. I'd highly recommend them!
- Colleen M.

In a word: Awesome!
Art and gave an excellent presentation on the logic and affordability of the Engineered Foundation System. This was a 'no mess' seamless two-day process with no disruption to our home life. The life-time, 100% transferrable ...More warrantee gives us total confidence and peace of mind that we are firmly planted. The city building inspector looked at the work and their plans a week later and signed off in a few minutes stating that "Oh, these systems are great! There is never a problem." We can highly recommend this company for their excellent customer service, professionalism, and for this outstanding product - a foundation with a warrantee that is 100% transferrable upon sale and re-sale of the house.
- Kathleen D.

The job was done over two days without problem. 's team was professional and experienced. It is hard to gage the final product as the outcome of their work will be shown "if I don't have any problems". I feel comfortable to recommended to others.
- Jeff S.

told me from the initial phone call that she was booked for the next few weeks, if not month(s). I needed the foundation repaired prior to renovations so she squeezed my project in. The team completed the work on time and in only a few days. 6 months later I noticed a few cracks around the door frames and stucco. Atlas came ...More back to check on the foundation and determined they were cosmetic cracks and no additional work was required.
- Jeremy B.

and his team showed up on time and did the job according to 's initial estimate. All the guys at the site were friendly and professional. The job took about 3 weeks but we never felt that our lives were interrupted. Whenever we had questions, the guys were guick with their answers.
Overall ...More it was a great experience.
- Billy C.

showed up on time, his estimate was the lowest and best
the house was in escrow and needed to close by the 15th of may
he fit my job in his schedule and it was completed on time
the work was done well according to code and a certificate of completion was submitted to escrow
was ...More on the job site and made sure the job was done right,
