"My husband and I went to the Home Expo in Columbia a few weeks ago and met
from Mountain Valley Foundation Services. We gave them our number" so that someone from the office could contact us to schedule an appointment which they did the following week. We booked an appointment for 2 weeks out so that we could get their first appointment of the day which is 8am in order to minimize the amount of work missed. A few days prior to our appointment we received a reminder in the mail but then the day of our appointment it was 8:15am and
was not at the house nor had we heard from him. I called the office to find out where he was, the woman put me on hold briefly while she called him only to find out he was still at least 20 mins away. I told her we were unable to wait that long (would have been almost an hour past our scheduled time) and that if was able to come the following Saturday we would be willing to reschedule otherwiise we would have to go with another company. She was apologetic and told me she did not know why he was late because it was on his schedule and that he could be there for 9am on Saturday. So, Satuday (today) gets here and not only does he not show up we do not even get a phone call. The lack of professionalism and reliability shown is completely unacceptable and I although I will be calling the office on Monday (there was no answer today when I called) there is no way we would ever do business with this company. If their staff are not reliable enough to even make appointments how could I possibly trust them with my home's foundation??

"I have no idea as to how Tip Top might compare to another foundation company other than price. I chose them almost solely based on that criteria, but with a reference" from my contractor so going in I at least had a little peace of mind. I had slso had a Structural Engineer inspect the house prior to obtaining quotes so I did have some idea as to what to expect. Tip Top certainly does not attempt to influence you with a slick sales presentation or elaborate detail.
did a brief inspection, provided measurements and explained what he felt needed to be done. I am not quite sure what I expected. They did everything they said they would, in the time they said they would do it, for what they said it would cost. That being said, I would have a hard time recommending them. their "warranty" (which I was informed I would receive after payment) explains everything that they are not responsible for, including a litany of items not mentioned prior to repairs. In fact, nothing was mentioned prior to repairs except how much it would cost and when they would show up. i will shoulder some of the responsibility, in that I should have asked a lot more questions, all of the things that you don't know until you know. I will give them some leeway due to the fact that it began to rain towards the end of the work, but my yard was left looking pretty rough. My home will never be a showpiece, but I felt that there was little respect as to its condition during this process. I guess that some of my frustration is that I am used to a little more hand holding when I give a company thousands of dollars. I won't ever see 95% of what was done to my house, and little was done to instill any knowledge or confidence in the work or process. I am hopeful they did great work where it counts, and that I will not need to use them or any other foundation company for a long, long time.

Crawl Spaces

Homes that aren't built on a slab foundation or basement feature crawl spaces to allow for the necessary access to plumbing, electrical and other home systems.

Foundation Repair, Concrete - Pouring & Repair

Pouring a foundation is the first critical step in building your home, so make sure you know what to look for if you're hiring a custom builder or doing a portion of the work yourself. Here are some foundation basics.

Relying solely on measurements to determine the condition of a foundation often leads to risks incurring further damage to a home, says Granott. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Dale W. of Boones Mill, Virginia.)
Foundation Repair

Measuring your foundation for levelness alone is not enough to determine if your foundation needs repair. A foundation expert will evaluate all the factors.

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).

     There are two types of cracks in foudation walls, horizonal and vertical. The vertical is from settling and usually is not that bad a repair onec the settling stops or the cause is fixed. A horizontal crack in my opinion worse unless it happened right as the house was built and it was backfilled incorrectly. That should have been fixed at that time though. Horizontal cracks are a sign of lateral pressure due to either a water problem, improper wall sizing or a combination of these. In these conditions I have always felt complete excavation outside the wall and reconstruction is your best approach with the proper sized block or concrete wall with buttresses as needed.

     You mention the future sale of the home and I would think the total replacement would be the best way as it will not leave any red flags. The steel plating would point to the problem and I can just think of all that would go through a buyers mind. Little things like how long will it be before the plate rusts out and needs to be replaced, even though it would probable last a long time.

     I would think you should spend the money on a consult with a structural engineer and get a written report on the problem and his recommendations as to the best repair. It will help with any future sale of the home. Without drawings the consult should be less than $500. I would bet he would recommend total replacement.

Foundation had moved so much that I was unable to shut my door. Was promised to be able to close and lock door same day. They were very polite and punctual and I have had no further issues with my foundation. They also gave me a lifetime warranty on the home.

We have not yet used the deal. The staff with the company has been very understanding of our circumstances. We have been having other work done first. They have also been very polite and courteous. They are very accommodating and understanding. Even though the coupon has expired they are still willing to honor the coupon for us.

Very happy with the work provided.

's estimate was lower than any others we had received. He was honest and forthright, and I would definitely use him again. He was responsive to any questions and comments, and when I contacted him after completion of the job because there were several screws sticking out of the new crawl space door they had installed, he was out the next day to fix it. The work is great, and I couldn't be more pleased with it. I would definitely use them again.

about taking a look at some sagging floors in my home.
Tolland Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
came over and evaluated the situation. He took some measurements with a floor laser in the kitchen. The floor was definitely not level. He then ventured into the crawl space to further a**** the foundation problem. It was determined that when the house was built some 55 years ago, the builder just didn't put enough support under the floor.

This company recommended inside and outside work where the other two companies only recommended inside job. For what they were going to do inside and outside, the price probably was not too out of reason. Most companies offer free estimates where this company charged. Only time will tell if we made the right decision.
