" came out and gave an estimate in order to do the required work. I received bids from RamJack NW and Matvey Construction, as well. While" the competition's prices were slightly cheaper, and Co came down in price in order to become competitive; however, the main deciding factor were the great reviews they had from both Angie's List and I spoke with several geotechnical engineers. One of the two competitors uses in house engineering, which I would highly advise against, and the other seemingly had a comparable product and prices, but then it came down to the reviews and recommendations I received. and Co came out and did the work as planned, on time, exactly at their bid, and all of the expectations that they communicated throughout the process were accurate. I am always a little concerned about using contractors, but these guys acted professionally throughout and at no time did they say anything that was inaccurate. The end result was better than I expected and I would absolutely recommend and Co.

"Overall great experience. Started off with an estimate that was open and transparent. They took care of submitting the paper work and engineering with the city." At the installation they took great care to make sure that there was no internal damage to the house as they installed the piers. Very fast, they were able to get 7 piers installed in a day and a half. Everything was done as described in the prelim work. Highly recommended.

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.

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).

I couldn't be more satisfied with Excavators NW. They were responsive and helped solve a number of unforeseen problems. Also my direction and plans were not entirely clear and they worked with me to get me exactly what I wanted.
My initial experience was with their representative, . He came out within a week of contact ...More and was able to clearly understand what my goals for the project were and also had some great suggestions. (the owner) was always available and checked in on the progress often. Once underway, the project Super, Cash was awesome and his direction, communication, and problem solving couldn't have been better. We ran into a number of unforeseen issues, including 2 oil tanks, unstable earth, constant water, and unclear plans on my part. The problem solving and solutions provided were spot on. did everything he could to help manage expectations and cost over-runs, and his ability to communicate the issues well, and spend a good deal of time ironing out solutions was a great trust builder for me.
If I ever have another project like this, I would not hesitate to partner with again.

The support for the structure, which had started to deform and separate from the house proper, was solidly re-anchored and appears absolutely stable. The work was done over two years ago, so the success of the project is clear.

Even though I didn't use this company, they called a few weeks later to check up and see if my problem had been resolved. Their customer service is unmatched, and I highly recommend them.

It went much better than when I had the house leveled 12 years ago. I talked to and Co. at the Home Show. We discussed what would happen, at that time. They came to the house a couple of times and always arrived on schedule. The work crew arrived on the appointed day. It took around three days to do the job. ...More showed up, during the day, to monitor the work and to see if the crew had run into any problems. And there was a problem. The house is built on fill. That is why it was sinking, especially in one corner. The crew could not get through some wood that was about 18' down. They had to cover the hole and fit me in down the road. I had to leave town, because of Thanksgiving. The crew came back while I was gone and finished the job. I was concerned about payment, because I wasn't in Seattle. I was told not to worry. I could pay the bill when I got back into town. How many companies will say that? The side yard looks like nothing was done, it was so clean. On more good thing. The work is guaranteed for the life of the house! Thank you & Co.

provided a very professional and courteous inspection, with confidence and expertise. I entered the appointment feeling I was about to face huge costs to stabilize my home. It turned out I likely have no more than a little seepage in my chimney. Thank you !

and his crew are extremely knowledgeable and experienced. I called on the recommendation of my home inspector after learning that my house was settling and causing extensive issues in my kitchen. I called on a Saturday and he came out on Sunday morning to look at the problem. He ...More quickly identified the cause of the problem and outlined a very clear plan at raising the house back up to level. He over designed and over-engineered the fix so that I would never have any issues even 30-40 years from now. He went above and beyond what he said he would do (at no additional cost) simply because he wanted to make sure it was done right and that I was happy. Customer service, quality work and a very fair price made me a very happy customer. I hope I don't have to but if I ever have any other issues with my house, I'll be calling first to get his opinion. He's got 30 years of experience and knows how to get things done. Very satisfied.

Sound Seismic came in and did a seismic retrofit of our 1927 home. The basement had been previously been completely finished so getting the retrofit done was a big job. They were more than up to the task. We did most of the demo ourselves and did the painting to save on costs, they did the rest. Great outfit. Highly recommend them for this kind of project. A+

We had a number of complications that came up, like not 1 but 2 oil tanks that contaminated the soil, and what appeared to be a stream running under the house. Also the soil was too sandy and wet to properly support the new foundation.
The experience with Excavators NW from start to finish was stellar and they went beyond normal support to help ...More solve some complicated issues. The superintendant on the job inparticular was awesome, and his years of experience and support helped drive the complications to great solutions.
Even with a large amount of other jobs, the owner came by on a regular basis to check up on the work and ensure that I was happy with how everything was progressing.
This was a very big job and I would not heistate to hire Excavators NW again. They do excellent work and went above and beyond what I would have expected.
