" and his team did drain tile for a few houses in our neighborhood. We asked a crew member if we could get a quote, and " came over to give us a quote that same day. The rates quoted were very competitive, and although we waited for almost 6+ months later, he honored the price. He was also very willing to come by to the house one more time to discuss the project, the work that we needed to do, and what we could expect from him and his team. When we were ready to schedule, was able to schedule the work within one week of us contacting him. and his team were very courtious, and friendly. was very professional, knowledgeable when discussing the work and our basement situation. His work came with a warrantly which shows that he stands behind his work. They came promptly at 7:30 am both days. Day 1: They dug the trench, carried out the failed drain tile system, and installed the new system. Day 2: installation of the sump pump and poured the concrete over the new drain tile system. They set the alarm when they left each day. The only minor compaint is the screen door they used to go inside and out was left dirty and smudged. Other than that, everything was great! We hope that we do not have to see again - as our basement now will be nice and dry!

" was great to work with; He was very quick to access practical/cost effective solutions for the foundation in my basement. The job was finished" fast. I was also very appreciative as he volunteered to fix two issues outside of the initial project: He patched a crack on the foundation exterior as well as removed an old concrete slab in my yard without asking for payment! I would highly recommend to everyone and will use his services again.

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).

Called the compay & they had , come to give us an estimate in 2 - 3 days. was kind, thorough, & professional. He explained everything.
As he promised, he came with his team & completed the work in the time frame he told us.
It was very nice that they did this in a short notice ...More before it started snowing. It was cold & the ground was freezing. took extra day (from his weekend) to prepare the ground & warm it so that they would be able to dig.
We were very impressed with the quality work, how quickly it got done, & reasonable price.

walked the entire perimeter of the basement, inside and outside the house. He pointed out a few potential problem areas, reassured me about others that we thought might be an issue, and didn't make any kind of "hard sell". The issues he noted weren't critical, and we will probably attempt to remediate them ...More ourselves -- but if we don't, we absolutely trust him to do the work.

I highly recommend and . First of all he's very responsive, answers the phone and gets you quotes right away. To me, the most difficult part of hiring contractors is just getting them to return phone calls! He's very thorough explaining what needs to be done. He's a professional and goes ...More above ones expectations particularly in coming up with solutions to small obstacles in getting the job done. He does great work. I have already hired him for two other projects.

The estimator came, and shortly after we agreed upon a price for the work, came out. It was fortunate for me that this winter has been so mild, as it permitted the foundation to be poured and the steps to be built. The work was finished over a few days, and then completed after they passed the city's inspection. Everything ...More went smoothly. I paint or stain the steps come warmer weather.

did an excellent job, weather did not cooperate. His cement crew did a really good job and very good work to work with. offered ideas as we planned out the extra project.

came in April, gave us an estimate and said they would come in mid-June to do the work. They didn't come nor did they call. We finally called them the first of August and he told us mid-September. I called him on 9/1/11 to see if they still on target and he said it would be the end of October. At the end of our conversation, ...More I told him I wasn't happy and that we got his name from Angie's List, he started making noises that sounded like heh, heh, heh so I said good bye ad hung up. During the conversation I told him I was of the impression that you can't work with cement when the temp is below 40 degrees but he said it can be worked with at 30. I asked about snow and he said they could drop heat blanket over it and it would be fine. After the call to , I called a friend who is a brick by profession. He said cement can be worked with at 32-36 degrees depending on the wind chill but he wouldn't recommend doing it on a foundation. The driveway runs up against the side of the house where the foundation needs to be replaced and they would have to tear that out. Our friend said he definitely wouldn't recommend pouring cement in winter because even with a heat blanket on top, you can't control the ground temperature underneath. Our friend didn't recommend what was proposing at all! In Iowa we get a lot of temps in the 20's but not consistently over 30 during the winter. This is clearly a company who doesn't honor their commitment.

Owner came out evaluated the job and later that day provided an estimate by phone. He could not give exact day for doing the job since it was small and would need to be fitted into schedule but the work was completed in less than 10 days. Workers were professional, friendly, did a great job, and cleaned up the job site. The foundation looks great. ...More I would recommend to my friends.

They have done some work on my house previously and they are going to be doing some work. They were fantastic. I had seen two other people but was the one who actually who was willing to fit into my budget. They really understand their clients, needs and their budgets.
