The salesman commented while looking at the previous work that he didn't
understand why several things were done as they were and said he could
level my home and would also see if he could get me a discount because
they had been there before. I ended up with a quote for $4,500.00.
Before I even responded to accept, I got a call about an appointment
they said I had, but that they had a cancellation and could come
earlier. I called Them to say I didn't have an appointment and wasn't
ready to do the repairs at that time. After a few weeks when I was
ready, I called back to make an appointment. Afterward, they called back early one morning
stating they had a cancellation and had a crew that could come
immediately, so I agreed to the change and stayed home from work. A
crew finally showed up at about 11:30 AM, but immediately left to go get
supplies from Home Depot and to eat lunch. Then someone showed up
looking for the crew because they had reported having problems with
their brakes. When the crew finally got back, they began unloading
material and began work, while another person worked on their truck.
They worked off and on for parts of three days. Several times the lead
worker would tell me they we're complete with the work and each time I
would point out that they hadn't corrected the problems. The
owner/manager came once and said he didn't understand some of what they
had done and spent a good bit of time talking about soil explanation and
contraction, when I knew I lived on sand and had very little soil
movement. The last time I saw the crew and they said they were
finished, I said I needed to see the salesman who promised they could
level my home. He returned, acknowledged the issues and promised he
would make me happy. He excused himself to go catch up with his crew to
get his level and then he would return. I never saw or heard from him
again. I called the office after a couple of days for an update on when my work would continue
and received apologies and a promise for a return call. Never got the
call, but received a bill.
I later hired an engineer to look at my structure and another contractor who I paid to undo all that
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
had done and then level my home. During the engineer study and subsequent leveling, damages were found from the previous work. The only reason I didn't pursue legal actions against
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
was that they didn't insist on payment for the failed job. The only reason I am writing this review is because I was shocked they were even listed.

I was employee of a Bank that
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
inc. on all reverse mortgage application. I called several companies but was the most comfortable with
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
and their representative
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
.
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
was very professional and explained how my house had shifted. The first repairs were 15 piers . They removed my bushes and replaced all landscaping. When the dirt settled they came back and refilled the areas that needed dirt. They put piers by my back door ( on patio) fill with concrete and when cracked they came back to redo and it is in good shape. In January of 2013 I called
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
with another problem where the house was high, it had sunk and we had another 9 piers put in that area. That was a cost of $2475.00.
I called
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
in
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
because of a crack that appeared above my den window ( a pier is below the window). To have him look to see if the pier had shifted? We had plumber do a test on water leakage under slab. So now we are working on 2 sewer leaks under my house.
I have referred
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
to several of my friends and neighbors who have used them. I'm pleased with their work and concern on fixing anything need that need to be done

I had some issues with water entering my crawl space. I called
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
and
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
came out.
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
was at my house five minutes early and made a very professional impression. I knew right away I was in good hands. His knowledge and kindness put me at ease right away.
I informed
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
that I had just bought the home. I was planning on having new gutters put on and was in the process of grading some soil away from my house.
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
gave me several options, one of which is an interior drain/pump system. BUT he told me that before I go that route, lets see how the new gutters and grading works.
Fortunately the gutters and grading worked.
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
could have given me the hard sale on a pump system but he was honest and told me not to spend the money unless needed.
I did however need my vapor
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
replaced. Lots of companies to that work, but
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
told me he was going to go through it with a rake till it was spotless, and in his words, if it doesn't belong on the ground it will be taken off the ground. Every wire, and piece of insulation was re-hung. And the
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
was installed extremely well. No rocks and bricks to hold it in place; they pounded staples in to keep it exactly how they laid it.
I am extremely happy I called
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
. I may still go with the pump in the future if I have additional problems, but for now I am all set and happy. If I need any work at all done in my crawl space I am going to call
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
. If you need work done, do yourself a favor and go with this highly reputable, professional company. From the moment the
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
answers the phone you will know you are in the best hands possible.

The contractors were friendly and explained what they were doing. They had to do the job at two different times because one part of the wall was damp. They cleaned up after they were finished. There is a 50 year transferable warranty with their products which is very unusual and most welcome.

Our situation was unique. We got 3 bids for a problem in our basement. We thought there was water under the house and it needed to be fixed. Part of the work was done , cutting thru the concrete in the basement floor. When they reached the dirt under the house it was obvious that it was sewage and not water. Their work that far was very good and the area was kept very clean.At this point they stopped and the plumber was called and fixed an outside broken sewage line.
We have no issues with the workmenship or their bid or the original employees that came to the house. My problem was that the company was adamant that we needed to complete their work and do the install. The plumber really thought that the issue was only the broken sewage line. We kept the hole open for several months before it was concreted again to make sure that was the problem. One worker from
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
Foundations called over and over again to get us to finish their work. It took probably six weeks to settle on a fair price for the work they initially did. We made the mistake of not going directly to the owner to resolve this. It was very upsetting.

Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
, and the whole crew are wonderfully professional and respectful. I had a lot of questions throughout the process, and also added work to the contract. I was always met with prompt and helpful responses. The quality of their work appears solid to me. The termites had had a feast on my house before I bought it. It appears to be in great shape now.
The timeline did take longer than expected, but this is a very rainy time of year, and I did add work to the contract. There was also greater damage to the interior walls than I expected, but they repaired the walls. I would definitely recommend

. I am happy with the work they did, and enjoyed having their friendly and hard-working crew at my new home.

Golden was very prompt and professional, and was able to fix my garage floor entry seam in less than the estimated time. They knew what they were doing, wore protective goggles when performing the cutting and grinding work, and used top quality fast-drying cement to finish the job a day earlier than expected. The end result was exactly what was looking for. Two things stand out as less than ideal issues from the job - the price, and replacement to an irrigation hose damaged during construction. The price was nearly double what I hoped to pay. But I needed the job done now and trusted the Angie's List recommendations. Golden did a good job completing the necessary repair in less time than expected, and were totally professional to deal with. I just thought the price was way high. During the project, an irrigation hose was damaged. Golden replaced the hose but did not tie it into the system properly, requring me to fix it myself. They deducted a small amount off the final price for my trouble. All in all, I would use them again and recommend them to others. I would just try to negotiate on the price up front next time.

It went very well. Mr. Farnie and his crew did exactly what they said they would do. I couldn't be more pleased with their work.
They were friendly, on time, and professional.

Couldn't have asked for better service. Visit for estimate was prompt and well explained. The family in the house next door to ours also contracted for the same service. Turned out that our house did not need as much sand as predicted, so the final cost was for the actual amount used -- half the estimate. The other house was much worse than ours so the final cost met the estimate but in no way was more than that. Arrival was on time, clean-up performed as promised. This is a big job that requires heavy equipment in the street but completed in one day per house so not much fuss or
Saratoga Springs Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
. Homeowners across the street watched the performance and are now contacting Gators to pump sand under their own houses.
