"This was for my Mom's home. They did me a big favor fitting me in the schedule within a few days, while other providers told me it could be weeks just for an estimate. I explained" that it was my Mom's house and I only had this particular day off and they squeezed me in. I watched for some time and they did a thorough job opening up the cracks so that the adhesive and injections would work well. They cleaned up well.

"After a home inspection regarding the sale of my son's home, we were informed that a crack in the foundation had to be repaired. We had a short timeframe to have the work done."
exceeded our expectations! They had the repair completed the next week.
provided us with a detailed description of the work and cost and was very good about explaining what work needed to be done. The cost was reasonable. He and his staff were very personable and were very good about communicating with us. The foundation repair looks great! Thank you,
, for being so prompt and helping my son meet his deadline. We definitely recommend your company to anyone needing foundation repair work.

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.

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.)

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.

I hope I am reading the question correctly.  By added work, I assume you are speaking of change orders or additional work as opposed to the original work he contracted for? I think there are very few occasions that it would be wise to pay a contractor in full up front for work on the main contract that you are hireing him for. BUT, It is quite common that a general contractor will charge for (and should be paid), all change orders 100% upfront, as changes are typically very disruptive to a building process. Charging up front is somewhat to discourage changes as well as to not make the builder deal with chasing after money at least if he has to work quickly to modify his schedule due to the change at hand. It should have been spelled out in his contract with you prior to the start of the job that that was the agreement for how changes would be handled.

 

Some unscrupulous customers can also contract for work that they don't actually have the money for and then it puts the builder at a disadvantage at the end of the project when trying to collect. so basically doing a change is a courtesy so paying changes up front is part of reciprocating and extending courtesy back.

 

Also, check with some of his references and referral customers and find out if they too had the same experience and see if it worked out ok for them.

They arrived on time, were very polite and knowledgeable, they explained every step. They came into the house often to verify that the process was accomplishing what it was supposed to (floor being leveled, cracks in walls stabilized or improving, not getting worse). They were professional in every respect. We would definitely recommend them unconditionally!

Got a booklet on foundation repair in the mail along with a picture and profile of the person who would be coming by my house 2 weeks before the appointment. That was a good first impression and an indication of the professionalism of the company. The day before my appointment, the sales rep called me to inform me that he wouldn't be able to come because he had been called for jury duty. He said we could reschedule, or if I wanted to keep the appointment that the owner of the company would come out and honor the original time. I couldn't reschedule, so

(the owner) showed up the next day with two other gentlemen. They were very thorough and took their time to gather all the information they needed to present a solution. They were back and forth between the house and the crawl space 4 or 5 times making sure all measurements were exact. I received the proposal the next day.
Budgetary concerns necessitate putting the job off for a few months, but I wanted to post this now because I was so impressed with the professionalism of the company. It's rare today to find a company that doesn't use high pressure sales tactics or try to sell you something you don't need. I would recommend

The job went very well. They came out sooner than planed due to a delay on another job. They removed the soil to install the piers, raised the wall to level, backed filled the holes , and sloped the ground for positive drainage away from the house, I was pleased that I selected this firm to do the work. I asked them about another question I had about my foundation and they could have got another days work , but they said that since I had no real evidence of a problem that I would be wasting money to fix a problem that I only thought I might have. I would not hesitate to call them with any future problems I may have with foundations. I woyuld highly recommend them to anyone.
