"We had to reschedule multiple times, a couple times on our end (wife went into labor the day before the work was to begin) and a couple times on their end (rained" out of other jobs). Eventually, we were able to work out a day to have the work done and it was done quickly, relatively quietly (for work using jackhammers), and done well. My only annoyance is the discoloration of the driveway where they had to jackhammer through and re-pour concrete ... but that was expected. Not really a con, just seemed to be the natural result of the work that needed to be done. Pros: Relatively flexible, reasonably priced Cons: Scheduling can be challenging when there is a lot of rain

-David C.

"The crew arrived at 11:30 am and worked until early evening. They returned the next day about *am and were cleaned up and out at 4:30 pm. They were very efficient.

-Albert H.

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.

Foundation Repair

Many homeowners worry about the severity of foundation cracks in the basement.

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.

Foundation damage can lead to costly repairs, especially if left untreated for a long time. Check out our expert tips for best advice on how to handle.

Angie's List
Foundation Repair, Structural Engineering

Many homeowners don’t pay attention to their home’s foundation until it’s too late. A foundation problem could jeopardize the structural soundness of your home and make it impossible to sell without first being corrected. Get tips on what you can do to prevent problems.

Angie's Answers

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).


Foundation Repair reviews in Lakewood


I thought the sill plate on my newly bought home was slipping out due to rot. Very concerned, I phoned
Lakewood Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and he asked me questions about the sill plate then agreed to come out to check it out promptly. Once at my home, he quickly assessed the state of the sill plate and laid my fears to rest: the plate was not slipping out; it is fine just getting wet due to leaky shingles. As a side benefit of the visit,
Lakewood Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave me recommendations on how to improve ventilation of my shingled home. I found
Lakewood Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
to be a cordial, polite and honest man with obvious expertise in his field.
- Maria Aleida L.

Came out promptly and took a few weeks for an estimate. The estimate given was not what I asked them to quote. It took another few weeks of phone calls and emails to get a response back. In the end, they never ended up giving me the quote I requested. Therefore, this job was given to another company
- David C.

Overall, I was highly satisfied with the job. I had gotten an estimate two years ago but hadn't done the work yet. They came out when promised, and I was amazed that they simply honored the two year old estimate. The crew that came out was on time and did the work and cleanup in a very professional manner. They had to go an extra 27 feet with each of the pilings, so the job was more costly than the estimate, but that was expected and the additional charges were warranted and clearly explained in the original estimate. The only problems with the job were in communication at the beginning to get scheduled for the work, and at the end of the job to get the final inspection from the county. Minor issues on leaving messages at the wrong phone number or not leaving messages about paperwork. The communications issues don't detract from the overall competent job.
- Kenneth H.

I called Tarheel Basements a little over 2 weeks ago about concerns I had with my house/foundation. I explained why I was calling, and they scheduled a visit for today.
Prior to today's visit, they mailed me a packet. The contents included pamphlets with information and pictures specific to the types of conditions I had called and expressed concerns about.
The techinician,
Lakewood Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
, showed up on time and spent over an hour checking my house. He was professional and knowledgeable. I was relieved to learn that repairs are not needed, but if they are in the future, he explained the process and provided an estimate of what certain repairs may cost.
There was no charge for today's visit, and I can't express how much I appreciate the peace of mind I have knowing that I do not have to worry about foundation repairs at this time. If that need ever arises in the future, Tarheel Basements will be the company I choose to do the work.
Great customer service and great customer experience!

- Mark T.

I have a large crack (about 12 inches) from the top of the wall to the doorway between the dining room and kitchen. I was concerned that the recent earthquakes may have caused significant damage to my pier and beam foundation since my home was built in 1948. Scheduling the appointment was convenient and the $55 coupon was great. They conveyed their findings to my Mother who met them. They followed up with a written report via email that I received one day later. They noted 3 problems: sagging in the doorway, sagging in the bathroom and dry foundation. Their report indicated the items to be repaired and advice regarding the dry foundation. What I really liked was that they said that the suggested repairs were not an emergency and could wait until further updates are done to the house. I will definitely use them again.

O. arrived on time and alerted me prior to his coming by phone.

went around the basement and inspected the walls and windows for moisture penetration, and signs of deterioration. He listened to my concerns and wrote a report and recommended an indoor french drain installation based on his professional judgment of the situation.
I received the report with a schematic of my basement and his assessment as a pdf on email. He included a detailed estimate for the work proposed.
I feel that I got a report and an hour of evaluation for $49 and it is fair.
- Dora W.

I am so very pleased with the work completed. I bought this house not too long ago. It's amazing how many issues can be missed! On all four corners of the foundation, there were large pieces of concrete that had broken off under the brick. After being fixed, I can't tell that it was ever broken. He did an excellent job of tuckpointing some areas of the brick that I did not notice needing repair. I had a large crack in a basement wall going sideways and about halfway in the eight foot tall wall. He told me that it was caused by too much pressure from the ground being too wet outside. He said the pressure from outside was pushing against the concrete wall and the crack would continue to grow larger and eventually leak. He installed new french drain outside to divert water away from the foundation and then sealed the crack in the interior basement wall. I am so totally pleased I can use the wood

in the basement. The first time I tried it, smoke filled the basement! It turns out the original clay flue liner was broken but the chimney was completely blocked by soot! It was just a matter of time it would have caught fire. I am pleased that all of my questions were answered politely and to the point. They didn't try to sell me services that were not needed. Everything was carefully explained to me on each of the repairs that needed to be made and why it needed to be done. The guys were always friendly and showed up on time. When everything was complete, I couldn't even tell that they were even there to begin with! They cleaned up any mess that the job created. I have high regards and highly recommend

to anyone who needs to have work done. I will definitely hire them again in the future!

I purchased a $49 foundation inspection deal and
Lakewood Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
found that although the foundation of the main house is fine, that there was a problem with the attached screened-in patio. After the discount from the Angie's list deal, the foundation repair cost $4800, including an inspection by an engineer. Everything went great. The team to do the repair work showed up on time, about 7:45 a.m. this morning, and got to work
Lakewood Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out to talk with them and complete the paperwork, but the the lead on the project had already showed me that he had all of the information that he needed on his phone.
Lakewood Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
sent him the diagram and details. They were very quick and had all 10 piers in place before the engineer showed up a little after 10:30 a.m. The engineer recommended that the foundation come up another half inch on the end that was the problem and they did that while he was there. He seemed very happy with their work. After they finished -- about 11:30 a.m., I walked around the area where they had worked and it was difficult to find any evidence that they had been there. They had carefully bagged the dirt that they dug up and replaced it when they finished, so no one would even know that I had foundation work done if I didn't tell them. I am very pleased with the work that was done and the fact that the warranty is transferable if I should ever sell the house.
