"Needed foundation repair and had a good recommendation for them. Their online form lead to a game of phone tag, that should have been an email. Next available appointment" for the estimate was several weeks out, but I was impressed by the professionalism and thoroughness of the estimator,
. We were not able to work out a mutual time to perform the work immediately (they rescheduled first and then my calendar and budget did not work for subsequent time.) Called them back several months later and could not get them to return my phone call. Receptionist,
, repeatedly promised to have my call returned by the estimator, and it never was. I spent several weeks calling them back, expressing increased levels of frustration, with no luck. Receptionist needs to have some authority to provide actual information or make appointments, rather than being a message recorder. It would have been better if they had just said they were busy. I took my business elsewhere and was very happy with the result.

"The lady at Atlas was full of questions. The other foundation companies asked whether it was pier&beam or slab, and that was about it, but she also wanted to" know whether it had a concrete perimeter, whether you could see under the house, how old the house was, how high the crawl space was... I told her the crawl space was high enough to crawl under, but I wasn't at home and didn't know exactly how high. She wouldn't set up an appointment without me going home and measuring it, so I gave up. If they are this difficult when they are supposedly trying to get your business, I can just imagine what a pain it would be to try to get them to come out to redo something they did incorrectly!

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.

For this type of job, you need plans and specs from an Architectural/Engineering firm before thinking about contractors - and to get a building permit. Ben's method would work and done incrementally could cost well over $100,000 plus as he says, but this not really the most economic way to approach this big a job. A House Mover or Foundation Underpinning specialty company can usually slide your house onto a whole new foundation, or jack it up on steel beams and hold it there while a basement is dug underneath it, without any intermediate piers. The jacking/move cost would probably be on the order of $30-40,000, and a new basement probably about $40-50,000 - rough ballpark, though I have been involved in some 1000-1500SF single story jobs that went for under $70,000 total. I have been involved in a fair number of these type jobs - and the way the numbers come out, if there is room on the property to move the house, it is almost always nearly as cheap or cheaper to build an equivalent square footage (basement plus ground level) addition rather than add a basement under the house, and that way your new footage is half above ground so worth more on resale, plus you do not lose use of the house for a month or two. Second cheapest is usually sliding house to a new foundation, if property is large enough to do this - though house is totally cut off from utilities for a week to three. Most expensive, and usually only done in tight city environments or with full 2 story or higher houses, is adding the foundation in place, though your utility interruptions should be on the order of hours at a time rather than days or weeks. Talk to an architect - I think you will quickly lean towards the addition option rather than adding a basement - it is just too expensive to deepen foundations in most cases, plus you WILL get cracking in the house and possible water and sewer pipe problems in a move/underpinning job, which is not the case with an addition. This become more likely the case since you want to add 8 feet off the back of the home anyway - so why not just enlarge the addition and do it all that way - MUCH simpler, and MUCH less disruption of your life, and you get much higher resale return on your investment.

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).

canceled on me 3 times for a family emergency each time. I made the last appointment prior to the 30 day cancelation policy for them to call and cancel my appointment after policy had expired. We are all human, but come on, you really didn't seem to need the business or are too overbooked.

We were needing a second opinion on foundation issues we were having. Since our foundation is covered under warranty by a different foundation company we were told that the shifting wasn't too much to be concerned about. Aside from the cosmetic issues we were having it was obvious there were foundation issues.
We had someone from

We are very pleased with their work and apologize for such a delay in posting a review! The only reason for the B in responsiveness is because at the time that we had water in the basement they were growing as a company and ended up hiring an office assistant. Once she was hired responsiveness was worth an A! They returned to our house and did the extra work that the previous owner had refused to do and they charged us NOTHING! They understood the situation we were in and didn't think twice about just finishing the job. They went above and beyond what they needed to do! Not only did they do the work, but the crew was very pleasant and professional when they did the work. We had

at the time and two children, 2 and 4, who loved watching them right out the living room window. The man working the excavator waved to the kids and interacted with them as they watched. They came around 8am and were done by 12:30 just in time for naps. I have shared their name with others and let our realtor know the value of this company.

was prompt to call and setup an appointment to view the roof. Great guy to talk to and was very honest regarding the leak and where he thought it was coming from. Also on day he arrived, he was patiently waiting at gate when the clouds opened up and he got unexpectedly drenched. But he had great attitude about it and was quickly able to identify the problem and have it fixed. It's been 3 months and several rainstorms after and no

I was selling my house and the buyers were concerned with a crack in the foundation wall. I'd had all the cracks epoxy sealed about 8 to 10 years prior, but due to ground movement, they had opened a little. My realtor had suggested this company, so I went with them since I was under a bit of a time crunch. They came on time and began working. I was amazed at how quickly they were able to complete the work. They were very professional and cleaned up very well after they were done. The buyers were very satisfied with the work, as well.
