"He discussed with me how the problem can be fixed & provided an estimate. He was professional & courteous. I like that there is the potential for financing. I have decided" not to have the work done at this time. I will definitely contact them when ready to do the work.

"I wasn’t pleased. When they lifted my house up, but what they did on the outside, they didn’t fill in the cracks. I’m afraid that water will fill the cracks. My doors" aren’t closing properly. I still have high/low places. It’s low towards the front. I had to call them back 2-3 times to level my floors, which they were supposed to do in the beginning. I felt like I had to watch them constantly in order for them to do.

"They were good. They showed up on time and they were clear about their ideas of what they recommended. The deal was for $49 of assessment where as the normal assessment fee was 2" or 3 times of that. So they just had the deal for doing the $49 assessment. Our experience makes it seem like they are a solid company. They were prompt and performed good service. They did what they said. They were prompt about calling and that whole process. We give them good
for what they did which was just an assessment and there wasn’t any work done. It was kind of hard to fail on unless they were not prompt in their communications, and they showed up on time. So there’s really no reason to give them any downgrade. The price was good. They did what they said and they provided a decent assessment.

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.

I purchased an Angie's List Big Deal for this service. They came out and did an estimate. I have not decided whether I am going to use them or not because I am getting other bids for the foundation work I am wanting done. They came and did an inspection on the outside and did measurements of the level of the house inside and out. Then they

little piers to bump up my foundation and showed me how much I would need. Then they quoted me a cost. They did the same as the other three foundation companies that I had asked for and they were not on Angie's List. Their price was medium; I got two lows and one high and theirs was kind of medium. Their price was competitive. They sent me an email about two days after I bought the stuff saying they were going to contact me, but they never did so I ended up calling them back asking if we could set up a time. The guy came on time and everything.

From the first point of contact, everyone at the company was very professional, knowledgeable, honest, and punctual. We had to reschedule the original appointment due to a death in the family, and
Saint Joseph Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
was very understanding, as was the office staff. He was also very honest about the poor quality of work that had been done by earlier this spring by another company. He took photos under our house and went under there with me on a very hot August afternoon to explain the situation as he saw it. He gave a detailed explanation of his recommendations.
Several weeks passed during which all members of the
Saint Joseph Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
team were very cooperative, helping us decide the best course of action to solve our moisture issues. They promptly provided several estimates.
Once the work was scheduled, the team was punctual - we got a phone reminder from the office staff to let us know the approximate time of day they would arrive.

The team was neat and left our yard and the surrounding crawl space area in good condition.
At the conclusion of the work we were unable to meet with

during the week, so he came out on a Sunday afternoon to explain the work and the newly - installed Atmox system.

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.
