"After I accepted the estimate, he said it would be three to four weeks. No date as the weather has been unpredictable. That gave me time to clear out the garage. A call came one morning" and they came after lunch. They were a well -oiled machine, working together efficiently. No slackers. They were to return the next morning at 7:30 AM. All the men converged before 7:30 and started right in. Very organized and cleaned up after each day's work. I was told that they also replaced some of the bricks. Everyone was courteous from the office to construction crew members.

"Mr.
came at 9 am as promised. One of my neighbors had recommended them, she said they were so honest. I had previously had another company out and they told" us we needed 19,000. in repairs. We were in shock and there was no way we could afford this. Mr.
was there longer, and really did a comprehensive assessment of our home with eyes and his computer equipment. His measurements were the same, but he said that we did not have to worry, that the difference was not enough to warrant expensive repairs. Just make sure that we watered the front of our house along the perimeter in the summer to prevent any problems. The last company, which is a very large company and also local, made it seem like a huge deal. Their ads on TV run all the time with local celebrities as spokes person. Mr.
said the few cracks we had were because the house was 30 years old, and they were normal for Texas soil settling. We have a lot of trees in our yard and he said to make sure we water the front where the house was only 1/2 different because the trees take up a lot of the water in the summer month. There was no charge for this service. His honestly and integrity were everything my neighbor said, and then some. I highly recommend them!

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.

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.

The job couldn't have gone better.

gave us several options for fixing our garage foundation and floor with several different price options. He responded immediately to our request for a proposal. The prices were very reasonable and the work top notch. He made sure the new garage floor section drained properly, which was our major concern. We did not have to wait long for the job to be completed. We would definitely use

Integrity provided a free quote, which came in lower than two other quotes. The quote called for less work than the other two. So I called and asked the owner, who also does the estimates, why he recommended less work than the other two had. He explained that he could see that the house had foundation work done back in the day, and that he could add twice as many new supports as he suggested, but that it wouldn't do much good in the long run. There was a particular spot in the house where new supports were necessary, but beyond that the existing supports looked good and just needed to be re-shimmed. I gathered from our conversation that he knows what he is doing, so we went ahead with the job. His team of ~6 guys showed up right on time on the scheduled day and worked hard for about 5-6 hours. The floor is much more level than before, not totally perfect, but much better. The plumber and engineer were both on time the next day to review the work. The independent engineer said that the house passes his structural integrity test. He also said that I could spend 2-3 times more than I did trying to get the house perfectly level, but it would almost certainly be impossible given the age of the house and the frequency with which the ground moves in that area.
All in all, I found Integrity to be professional, knowledgeable, punctual, and fair with prices.

They sent out a professional engineer in that regards. It was a free estimate as well. I really didn't have to buy anything. They looked over and were very professional. They were right up front and needed no work as everything was fine. They were very honest. They would let me know if I actually need a work or not unlike some other companies. The quality was good. If I have some foundation problems, then I would call them definitely.

On 11/15/2014 I purchased a Deal from Angie's List that was for a foundation inspection by American Foundation Repair (coupon code 1638371-1). I would like to cancel this purchase. After buying something online I expected to be able to schedule my appointment online since part of the purchase included listing dates and times I was available. However today I received an email from the owner stating they won't schedule an appointment online. This is unacceptable to me. Every other company I have ever contacted through Angie's List I was able to deal with online for scheduling and all other contact purposes. While it is the companies prerogative to not deal with customers online, this is 2014 and I expect to be able to handle business by electronic online means. Thank you.

We ended up going with the

which we've had just an amazing, just a really great process with. They were extremely responsive, helpful, not concerned about the time and questions that we had. They just spend as much time as we felt they felt we needed. We haven't done the repair yet, that's coming the second week of December, but we're all set and have plans and have agreed with the contract. I definitely think

should get wave reviews which they have other places as well. They're just excellent. They're very comparable to other quotes we received and they also have high quality materials. They definitely have a wide range of materials that you could choose from which I appreciated.

We were selling a house and needed to make some structural and drain repairs before closing. I explained to the owner of Basement Remedy my situation and he came out that same day to look at the needed repairs. He explained everything that needed to be done in detail. He gave me a estimate on the spot. There was no waiting weeks for a estimate.
...More />

I was on a time crunch and they were swamped with work. He worked with me and moved some of his guys around to make this happen for me. I must tell you that their work exceeded my expectations and went above and beyond to make some other repairs that needed to be done at no charge.



They were very clean and put runners down on the floors. The work zone was left clean at the end of each day. No loud music or profanity was heard.



I thought this attention to detail and true craftsmanship was a thing of the past. The men seemed to enjoy their work as all were very pleasant and professional. I trusted these folks completely in my home.



The buyer of my home came over a few times to look at the work and felt very confident with the repairs. Again Basement Remedy explained to the buyer in detail that the repairs being made would leave it a structurally sound and dry basement. They actually helped in the sale of the house by taking the time to ease any concerns on the buyers side.



After getting to know the owner of Basement Remedy I was even more impressed to learn that he is a military veteran and hires military veterans. You sure could tell by their attention to detail, showing up on time or early, and did more than was expected.



Its good to get several estimates and I did not go with the lowest priced company and have no regrets. With this type of work as in most of the trades you get what you pay. These guys stood out from the pack hands down. I have referred Basement Remedy to some friends and they shared the same positive experience with this company. Quality work and quality people.



In closing, house has sold and all parties are happy.....

We had an exterior garage wall that had slowly been dropping. I finally decided to go ahead and get it fixed. The Granite folks were courteous, professional, no

and no fuss. There was no pressure, but I accepted their repair proposal. Everything relating to their company and the work that was described hit all the right notes: use their own crews - check; bonded and insured - check; lifetime transferable warranty - check, handle all permits, etc. - check.
The crew came out on a rescheduled date (within a day or two) after getting rained-out on the first appointment. They worked quick and got the job done in a day. We had shrubs (hollies) where they had to work, but they were able to work around them and do the job without having to remove anything. The foreman was very friendly and happy to show me what they were doing.

, the office person I worked with on coordinating the job was very nice, responsive and accommodating.
I can recommend this company. They even honored an Angie's List discount after I had forgotten to present it.
