Mr.
Okemos Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
visited my house and took note of the several projects and repairs that were needed. He provided me a rough estimate of the costs, indicating that final costs would be more or less based on what he found to be the actual causes. As each project was undertaken, Mr.
Okemos Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
kept me informed on a daily basis, alerting me to complications that necessitated additional attention.
He was meticulous and thorough with each project but nevertheless worked quickly and with efficiency. His manner was unfailingly polite and cheerful, inspiring confidence and allaying concerns about costs. He provided informative answers when asked.
His work required that he be in and out of the house which he managed unobtrusively.
Normally I really dislike the necessity of having strangers in the house but Mr.

Initial evaluation and visit was very through and answered questions. Called as promised the next week to follow-up with quote, however the technician was sick and had to cancel the visit at the last minute. Rescheduled the following week. Estimate was as expected. We were also going to do Flood vents in the house and decided to do only the garage as we would be changing elevations in the yard/crawlspace which would impact FEMA compliance. Let us know we should get a call in about a week to schedule days for work.
About a week later the Admin assistant called and scheduled two days, Day one to remove the current failed pier, and also place the foundations. The second day to place the support smart

, and also sister a beam. The workers were scheduled to show up about noon, but called at 1pm to say they were running late. They showed up about 2-3pm to do the work. They brought extra help and still completed close to the expected time. The second day they showed up as scheduled and completed the work. There is noticeable difference in "solidness" of the floor in that area, and the gaps in the trim/floor are essentially closed.
The flood vents in the garage, they had a concern due to height above ground and compliance with FEMA requirements. Since we would be changing, they suggested not completing that work and waiting until we finish with the yard landscaping when we know the final elevations. They removed that work, and redid the bill to charge for the foundation work only.
We plan to have them back to do the Flood Vent work once we finalize the yard and crawlspace elevations.

Beware! His last name says it all...he will STRING you along! Saw

and

at a Home and Garden show and made contact for an estimate for a kitchen remodel. They came to look at the kitchen the 3rd week of February. While looking at it they suggested also doing the master bath which was next to the area. Thought that made sense and so we started with the bath because it was a small job. Problems with master bath remodel included: 1. leaving demo debris in the front yard and driveway area for weeks even though told it would be picked up numerous times during that period. 2. sub in charge of framing and tile work took out existing insulation saying it was in good shape and he would put it back in, but forgot to and only got excuses from
Okemos Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
- not really needed (though not true it helps with sound reduction) and then said he would put it in when kitchen work was done...never happened. 3. He bought crappy shower head unit. For $300 you would think it would have had some adjustment feature - but no - nothing to adjust the flow at all. And the plumber took out the filter for it, so it just blasted out. Instead of agreeing to replace it was told I had to buy something else myself and when I couldn't remove the one they had put in on my own (it was really tight) - it took them a month to get the plumber back out there. 4. Left back of shower/drywall that backed into kitchen completely unfinished. With screws showing and gap around the

to believe they would do it when the kitchen was done and never would have allowed that to be left in that condition if I had known they would never come back. Problems with kitchen: 1. Well actually it never happened. They never gave a proposal for the work but kept saying they would. After the bath was completed (about 2 1/2 months from when they first came to see the space)
Okemos Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
said it would be two more weeks. 2. A month after that still no proposal. 3. So at 3 1/2 months I sent an email asking about it and said if they were too busy or just weren't able to do it, to let me know. 4. Instead of just being honest

I was told although I had a life-time warranty, the warranty did not cover if there were to be foundation repair work inside the house. I initially paid close to $4,000 from a loan with a high interest rate offered to me through Atlas. Now, I was told the work would be $5,000 (so called discounted price) for installing 11 piers inside the home, which mean they would tear up my hard wood floors and tile in the kitchen. I also was told they were not responsible for any damage done. The initial foundation work they did, there was a plumbing issue that they caused, yet they were not responsible. We would have to pay them additional money to fix. This company seems really shady, and I wonder if the terms of their contract is legal. It seems all they are responsible is doing the work. If there is any damage while they are doing the work, they are not responsible. How is this a fair contract? Life-Time warranty sounds good to pull you in, but it doesn't really mean that you will not have to pay anything, because they will find a reason to charge you for something.

was helpful educating us on how it all works (sub-pump, drain tile). He was responsive and completed the project quickly. He and his crew were very respectful of our home and cleaned up nicely at the completion of the project. He was very thoughtful, too, in making sure our 2 boys would be awake to see the cement truck deliver the concrete and letting them leave their hand prints behind!

I very pleased with their work. They came a day early, after they called us to make sure it was ok to do so, and dug out the holes for the piers. On the day of the work, they were on time and ready to go to work when they said so. I am very pleased with their work, there was a time constraint because of putting in a new driveway and they met it beautifully. Only complaint was that they said they would put down plywood over the grass to keep the backhoe from damaging the lawn. They did not put down the plywood and the lawn around the work area was damaged pretty good. The salesman said they would send me a check for the cost of grass seed, but as of this date, 9-16, I haven't seen it yet.

We contracted the provider to gut and refinish two bathrooms for us. They told us it would take 2 weeks.. it ended up taking 5 weeks. It took days for them to get the pluming right, we had leaks. The water was only coming out cold. We put a stop payment on our second check so that they would fix the pluming. After they started installing the tile they told us that this is the FIRST TIME they even installed that type of tile. Had we known this from the beginning we would of selected someone else. We asked them to fix tile that had scratches in it, when they fixed it, it looked worse the second time they installed it so we just said forget it -- we pretty much realized at that point we wasted our money. The guys unplugged our sump pump in the basement so our basement had some water in it -- when we let them know, they denied it. The work looked decent when it was all done and they promised a 1 year warranty on all work. Within a few weeks the grout around the tile started cracking. I figured we would have to have it re-grouted and we could get someone else to come in and do it. The guy who came in told us all the tiles that have cracking around them are all loose and he is not going to regrout because this will happen again. I contacted the owner of

Other than being six hours late, the work was done professionally and expediently. They apologized for being so late. They had to complete a tough job before mine and wanted to make sure it was complete to their standards. The crew was very nice and did not leave a mess. The house is now far more solid than before.

did the initial evaluation on our repair. He was punctual, honest, and gave great input on suggestions for repair work. When the actual work was completed, they were fast, accurate, and informative. You could not even tell that work had been done as they used tarps for the dirt/debris and cleaned everything thoroughly and put everything back in its place when finished. They even reinstalled the landscape bushes, etc. The project manager was thorough and kept me informed throughout the process. We also recently noticed another issue with our foundation and called
