This was a fairly complex project with very difficult challenges that had to be assessed and surmounted.
Elk Grove Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
is a very conscientious and careful person who has very good resources, both in terms of equipment and experience, to bring to bear on solving the problems. He was open to my concerns and ideas throughout the project and was willing to talk through options. He was flexible and adjusted his schedule as needed. The job was completed with quality and timeliness at a competitive cost.

He did a full inspection and provided a written outline of the job. Still working with other companies for estimates but definatly in the running.

This service provider really lives up to the name Honesty Foundation. He explained why he felt the foundation did not need any repair and made some recommendations. I learned a lot and I suspect he saved me thousands of dollars.

The office responded promptly and was able to schedule a visit quickly, at a time convenient for me. A slight INconvenience was the representative showing up 1-1/2 hrs. early, with no advance phone call.
As for the "15-point Inspection:" Two of the points didn't apply to us (they related to crawl spaces). Of the remaining 13 "points", he looked at what I showed him in the basement (sites of occasional leakage problems) , made a diagnosis (which sounded reasonable), suggested two ways to deal with it (a first-try, and if that failed, a more complete and costly solution). He confined his attention to only 1/2 of our basement (where I

him), and showed no interest in the other half. I estimate that he failed to perform 10 of the 15 "points."
He promised to email me a recommendation and costs for the two approaches to remediation. 2-1/2 weeks later, I'm still waiting.
I don't know whether these guys are good or not, but they are certainly not at the top of my list of people to call for this matter.

Great! The crew arrived when they said they would. The estimated a 3 day job however it only took 2 days. They were very professional and very thorough. The foreman was sure to explain all that was done and answer any questions I had. They left no mess behind, this is a problem I've had with other service providers, and even spread the extra dirt in the place I requested. I would gladly recommend Advocate to people I know that are in need of foundation repair.

The phone service was questionable. I felt like I was dealing with AT&T not a local company. When I indicated that we were looking for someone to evaluate our basement for a potential wall replacement, he asked if it was pier-and-beam or slab. I repeated that it was a basement. Apparently reading from a script, he asked the same question again, "Yes, but is it..." I know basements are unusual in North Texas, but seriously... I specifically asked for them to send someone who had experience with basements, and he responded, "Of course." I was not reassured. On the other hand, the estimator was right on time and extremely professional. When told we were expecting to replace one wall of the basement, he immediately informed us that they don't do that type of work, but stayed about another half an hour talking to us about the issues on our house.

The foundation failed the city inspection.
The work they did was great. They used a ton of wood and installed several concrete piers.
Unfortunately I am going to need to hire an additional foundation repair company to finish the repair so that the house is stable and habitable.
The part that really irked me was that it was obvious to me from the beginning that the repair would not be sufficient to make the house stable. I had an engineer and an architect review it to confirm that my suspicions were right.
I was not surprised that it failed inspection.
Yes they "technically" did what the contract stated. It was totally MY fault for not specifying -- "repair enough to use the house" in the contract. It was also my fault for not knowing that what they were proposing would not repair the foundation enough to use the house. I have contacted them on and off for weeks. Once I get a more thorough report from an independent engineer, I expect to file a more formal grievance on the work.
It was also very odd that the person I talked with and who was "managing" the work, was never there when I stopped by.

No one showed up in the scheduled appointment. No calls to cancel and no notice to let the client know if they are going to be late. Nothing! I wasted the whole morning waiting and ending up missing a day in the office. If this is the way they do business now, I'm glad they showed their cards early. I'm dropping them as fast as I can...

The price stung, but they delivered on value. Time will be the true test, but so far all is holding well. The anchors they put in were impressive in size and their people communicated well, knew their stuff and treated our property as if it were their own.

responded to my call quickly and came out to take a look at my piers within a couple of days. He agreed that one of my piers needed to be adjusted. He came out with his crew the following week and fixed the pier. The most surprising part was that he stands by his work and fixed the pier for free. I am very pleased with these guys and know several people that have used them and are happy with their work.
