Mr.
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
completed his inspection and told me the location of the damage in two separate areas. He provided me a cost to do the repairs, but since the repairs would require that at least two of my bathrooms be torn up, he recommended that I hire a general contractor to handle both the repairs and the bathroom replacements. He explained to me that if they did the repair work, he could have it done in just a few days since they did have a crew working in the
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
area right now (they're based in
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
); however, I would still need someone to replace the bathrooms. Rather than do that, he recomended just getting a general contractor specializing in home remodeling/repair work to do the entire job.
Mr.
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
did not charge me for checking out the damage and recommending this solution to me. He was very forthright about what they could do and what would be the best for me to do as the customer. I'd highly recommend
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
for their honesty and concern for potential customers. If I ever have a need for their services in the future, I will be calling them again. .

Came out to give us an estimate on our recently purchased home. Once they got here, they determined that the lifting we needed to have done (along with sistering joists and installing a pier) was not something that their company does. BUT they referred me to the best company in the area to fix our moisture problems, and I am very appreciate of that. They also showed us a few things to watch (cracks in the brick). If I ever needed anything done related to a foundation, I would definitely call them again. They were punctual and very helpful.

The original quote was $6,267.00. That included a supposed discount of ($1045). The work order stated that any depth drilled over 25 ft. would be charged at $22/ft. I paid the full amount of $6267 up front, via my contractor First
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
.
The crew showed up on time and was professional. However, they began to drill and in 10 minutes had drilled 95 feet! The cost overage of this hole alone was to be $1540! Our contractor said to stop, as this seemed ridiculous. Our contractor said he could go $1500 over budget but no more. Our contractor tried all day to reach the sales person, but never got a response.
The crew then up-sold him on going to a larger blade, at an additional cost of $675. By the time the job was said and done, a $6200 job was now a $9,472 job.
When our contractor tried to negotiate the same discount as before, he was told there was no discount, and to pay the bill. At my contractor's request, I called
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
's sales person,
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
, who told me to call
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
the production coordinator who is in charge of "collecting overages." After 7 minutes on hold, I spoke with
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
who immediately started yelling at me about steel in the ground, and there would be no compromise. Very very unprofessional. Then, I asked to speak with her supervisor,
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
. She has not called me back.
In the meantime, I have sent an additional check for $2472 to
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
(vs. $3205 overage) , which I think is a fair compromise. My contractor agreed, in that the crew would have just kept on drilling and drilling, with no regard for client budget or approvals. While it's not the $1500 we told the crew, the work is done. I will let you know what happens next….

You can't go wrong with
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
and Sparks construction. We need a complete repair of our foundation and received 4 estimates. While
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
was the lowest estimate, we went with our gut since
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
Sparks showed up on time, explained the estimate, and provided very professional service. ...More /> The estimate was supposed to take up 4 days to complete the work at $9,800. On day one,
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
and his crew showed up early and came prepared to work. The very next day, the same experience with
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
being early. They completed the main job (minus masonry work) in just 2 days. When we asked about additional concerns with some of the sagging floors,
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
himself climbed under the house and told us the issue. He fixed it without adding to the original estimate.
We are very happy with
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
and his work. In fact, we have more work that needs to be done and he is #1 on our list to call. If you want on time, honest, and straight forward work, call these guys!!

Even though we did not ultimately choose
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
to repair our foundation, we were very pleased with the responsiveness and professionalism of the business. We have had so many issues as of late with contractors not showing up or showing up late.
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
is one of those companies that can be depended on to show up on time and provided a very good estimate. They even took the time to tell me and describe to me all of the work that was needed while explaining the estimate. The estimate provided was quite detailed and gave us a very good description of all work needed.
They showed up on time and explained everything quite clearly. Unfortunately we did go with another contractor due to price,
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
is one of those companies that actually care about the customer and will provide great service. You can really find out how good a company is on that very first visit. We were very pleased.

We were satisfied with the foundation and floor support repair recommendation and cost to repair. The support installation was accomplished as proposed and on schedule.

we had already had the work done, which was tree roots, and cracked bricks. we had cancelled this appointment, but the salesman showed up anyway. he said one whole side of our home was caving in and it would need to be fixed asap, or the house would collapse. when i told him the work was done and it was minor, he got very angry. i do not appreciate these foundation repair companies that try to sell you thousands of dollars worth of work, when you do not need it. it is very dishonest.

We were selling our house where we lived for 17 years. When we moved in, there was some rot discoloration under the kitchen on the outer sill and floor joists from an old plumbing leak. Our inspector said it was not significant. However, our buyers wanted it replaced. Also, there were two holes in the soffit overhang of the roof on the second floor. This was from the removal of two 1-1/2" pipes from a solar pool heating system. That also needed to be repaired. I obtained three estimates for this.

Eippert from Commonwealth was punctual and provided a detailed written estimate the same day by email as he said he would. The other guys were neither as responsive or detailed. Although Commonwealth was not the least expensive, he was close and I value contractors that pay attention to their promises and follow through, so they got the job. The job was performed in a professional and timely manner.

kept in touch via phone/email and provided a letter to clear up the CL100 inspection finding. Overall, an excellent experience and I would use Commonwealth again.

Baker&
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
took on a very difficult house reconstruction project that was accomplished through two contracts.
They saved significant costs by working out a method of reconstruction that did not require a separate house lifting contract. They provided good value workmanship. Change order pricing was fair. The contractor was flexible in resolving detailed design issues, and was enthusiastic about the challenge of the project, as well as proposing creative design solutions that were incorporated into the project. This contractor -
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
Smelz-
Charleston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
- can be trusted to follow through on his commitments. This was a very difficult project - the entire original wood frame foundation was replaced with a single pour integrated concrete slab and footing. The original wood foundations had failed. There was significant settlement of the bearing walls; and the house frame had to be jacked up, stabilized, and reinforced before the concrete foundation was formed and then placed. A laminated beam frame, to support the second floor, replaced the original frame walls and opened up the first floor area to facilitate rehabilitation. The owner resided on the second floor while all the work was done.

There was a second contract to replace the roof and install new fiber cement siding over a rain screen system. The house front wall was finished with a unique coffered panel design that the contractor developed and refined in order to install an integrated sliding garage door, as well as fit with the other building elements such as windows and entry stairway.

The end result of this work is a born again house. The original house was decrepit and close to a demolition project because of it's structural condition. Baker&

turned it into a very attractive home that now has a future.

was excellent. Mr. Eippert was very professional, dependable and competent. He is honest and detail oriented. Mr. Eippert is very knowledgable about his profession and hard-working.
