"Great, they called me, gave me a time that the person would come. Sent an email with 's information so I could contact him directly" if I needed. I texted him the morning of just to confirm and make sure he had my number so could text if he needed to. He confirmed, texted me on the way to let me know. Texted me to let me know he ran into traffic because of rain. Arrived only 10 mins late, took a look and took pictures and notes and put together a quick estimate. Explained everything to me and later followed up with that same estimate in writing via email. He was super nice, super polite and a pleasure to work with. I'm still getting other quotes but even if their prices are a bit lower I'd be inclined to work with them because of his professionalism. I also felt like he was honest. He told me how long they were scheduling out and what to expect. I want it done yesterday and of course that can't happen :)

"We had severe termite and water damage on a large structural beam on the side of our house. came out, began the work, found out there was" a lot more that needed to be done with this project (the whole huge beam was just falling apart) and took care of it without charging us any extra huge fees. He also climbed under our house a few times, looking for other potential issues that he could fix for us, gave a ton of advice, and will be back to put another "placeholder" beam in. Our house is almost 90 years old, so it needs a lot of work, but we know we have a great company here to rely on.

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).

Two experts have told me now that I did not need the french drain to resolve my moisture problem. I even pointed out to him that one may not be needed because of the heights of the ground outside and the concrete floor inside, and the conclusion of one expert opinion I had so far. But I was desperately looking for a solution for moisture in my slab ...More which may be coming just from the loss of vapor . He had great reviews till then, So, I approved the work and put my confidence in him. The workers were reasonably professional and the work seems to have been done well. My moisture problem is not resolved with the french drain. No photos of ongoing work were given to me as promised.

I would not hesitate to use again. is a thorough and nice guy with a polite crew. I initially called another top-rated Angie's List provider and was shocked to get an estimate that was SEVEN times that of . Please note that this other provider merely stuck his cellphone ...More through a hole in the floor and only filmed the damage! crawled under my house in 90 degree heat to give me an accurate estimate. Dirt and bugs don't scare him (rather a good trait in a foundation guy). He is no frills and gets the job done.

is a very pleasant hard working owner that gets down and dirty with his crew. He came to my house and did a thorough walk-through, took some measurements with his laser, and crawled under the foundation himself. He knew that I was in a bit of a hurry to start work on my house and he was able to accommodate me within a week and ...More a half. He ended up fixing, and replacing some of the columns and leveling the house the most he could. His estimate was very reasonable and came in lower than what others had quote me due in part to him not believing the work I was quoted by others was necessary at the moment. I feel pretty good about the job performed. The crew was very clean, and professional even going the extra mile and hauling some trash I had in the backyard, tossing the siding I no longer wanted, and even advised me about an open drainage I had. He got some tools and unscrewed the broken cap so I could easily place a new one. With you get a very personable service, which make me wish he was an electrician, and a plumber as well because I would hire him in a minute.

was very responsive to my shortened time-frame for repairs due to selling my home. He was able to reinforce a sagging area of the floor with two piers and jacked up the home 1/2 to 3/4 inch on either side. Very professional and listened to my concerns and offered viable solutions to repair. Work was done in one day. I would highly ...More recommend based upon his professional knowledge and demeanor.

It went very well. is a very nice, conscientious person who takes pride in his work. He was punctual and did the job in a timely manner. We thought his fee was very reasonable considering the amount of hard work involved. He was nice enough to fit us in to his very busy schedule, because we needed the work done before the closing ...More date on our house. We were slightly concerned about the possibility of cracks in the plaster wall as a result of the house being jacked up. But there was not a single sliver to be found.

He came to us and promised to finish our few projects,he immediately asked for money to start, we gave him $2000 upfront, he did little job and asked for more money, we were stupid enough to give him $4000 more. He stated he is "professional" he need all the money we agreed beginning of the contract, he also stated that he would get permit ...More and finish all the work in 15 days. It has been one month, we gave him total of $7800 and he did only not even $1000 worth of job. He is just scam, he uses someone's else company for to get his check from us. The name of the person Arisleidy Falette. Arisleidy Falette cashed all our check immediately. They also wrote us a check for $7500 to get our trust back, but that check doesn't have sufficient fund either. Be Aware of these two names. He took our money and not going to do the job. He just keep saying he will but unfortunately he is just big scam. NEVER WORK WITH HIM! NEVER GIVE MONEY TO HIM! We are starting legal action against to him.
