"The initial meeting went as scheduled and the game plan and price was agreed to based on their analysis of my problem. Nine piers were to be installed at two locations. We scheduled" the work for the following month at my request. The
team appeared on time as planned and began work immediately. One area of our foundation was a bit of a surprise because the builder had utilized a significant amount of excess concrete in that area of the stem wall footing. This resulted in a considerable amount of excess labor to remove the concrete but permitted the use of a different type of pier which eliminated one of the originally planned piers. In conclusion they installed 8 piers and resolved the structural issues as initially identified and discussed. The bill was significantly less than the initial estimate since one planned pier was ultimately unnecessary and they absorbed the additional labor on the excess concrete removal (a couple of hours of extra work). The damage to our foundation plants and shrubs was minimal given the nature of the work required. Clean up was okay when you recognize this is not a landscape company. Time will tell just how effective
's solution to our problem has been but to this point I'm pleasantly surprised and pleased with the service they provided. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

"We had used Quackers previously to correct a bowed basement wall. We were very satisfied with their work and asked them to come back and do some work on another wall which had earlier" (1998) been braced from the outside (work NOT done by Quackers). The area around the support I-beams and the wall had deteriorated over time since that area had not been resealed after the bracing was done.
took around an hour to fill the crack, reseal the I-beam / wall areas and spot seal above this wall and the other 2 remaining walls.

"Job was started ahead of schedule, all permits pulled, they coordinated with the municipal inspector as well as the plumber who had to move the laundry tub and plumbing lines for this" job. They cleaned up everything and left the house in great shape. I highly recommend

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.

We were very happy with the work and entire process. We had started conversations with the company owner a few years back to get estimates for our project. He came to the site on several occasions during that time to reassess the work and update the estimates. Once we were finally ready to start construction, the company was busy but made room in the schedule to accommodate our project. They set a start date for the project and stuck to it. Their crew and superintendent were professional and kept the site clean. They were responsive to our comments and made changes or corrected items when mentioned. As the homeowner and the architect for the project, this was extremely important. I was at the site daily overseeing the work and they were very responsive. They did sub out some of the concrete work. I was happy with the end product but did feel that the sub required a bit more oversight. I thought the company was very fair in pricing, professional and did good work. I highly recommend them and would use them for future projects.

We hired DES to seal the foundation on one part of our home, but then they realized we needed a sump pump due to an active water current right next to our foundation. Grant, the PM on the job, came back and explained everything, helped walk my husband through all the issues over the phone since he couldn't be on site, and explained the updated charges. Overall they did a very good job; they trampled an azalea during their work, and the cap is sitting too high, but as soon as they come back to fix these issues (which they've already agreed to), I'll change the Overall Rating to an A. Thanks DES!

This was an absolutely wonderful experience. As a new homeowner, I wanted to learn more about my property and their Angie's List deal was a perfect opportunity to identify and potential for long-term foundation issues, drainage concerns, and potential options for repairing and / or replacing some of my older concrete slabs. At the scheduled time, two very cheerful
Kingwood Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
engineers arrived and we started taking a look around the exterior of the house. As we started looking around the exterior, they took the time to talk to me about any potential concerns I had, areas to which I might like to have special attention given, and generally got to know me and my house. Looking at the concrete slabs, they were able to identify options for re-leveling those that had shifted over time, noting the areas of some slabs that might be more problematic than others. Examining my drainage, they verified that the current arrangement was largely adequate; the one area that was of concern was identified and explained in quite a bit of detail, and they indicated what the proper resolution would be (which I could handle myself). Completing the exterior analysis, they expertly identified a few areas that they suggested be monitored for any shifting, providing me with the monitoring devices and instructions for installing them properly. The interior analysis involved taking measurements of all ceilings to identify any shifts in the structure of the house - they took a good number of measurements from both levels. They also thoroughly inspected the lower level for any signs of water penetration. I would note that I was both surprised and very pleased to discover that they were both very pet-friendly people. Having completed their measurements, they summarized the result of the visit and were merrily on their way. Within a few days, I had estimates for the identified issues and a report that detailed the examination and findings. It was an absolute pleasure to meet both the engineers, get to know them, and have them perform such a careful and professional analysis of our home. Thanks to them, we have exactly the information we were hoping to get and will definitely be utilizing them in the future. Thank you both so much!

The crew was here on time and were efficient. They didn't have to tear up the floor, which was a big plus. After their work, I could barely tell they had done the work on the outside, but in the inside cracks literally closed in some places. I went from over a 2" difference to almost totally level. Great work.

came out for an inspection/quote and was very knowledgeable. He gave us a lot of details about the work itself and answered all of our questions. The workers who actually performed the work were professional and completed all of the work to our satisfaction. I would not hesitate to refer them.
