"The technician came out and took measurements at various corners of the house (internal). He also inspected the outside. There is some foundational drop, which I" already suspected. He advised me to install soaker hoses around the front perimeter of the home to prevent further sinking. Also provided a quote for piers to fix the front end of the home.

"Their price was the best of the other estimates we received. The job was completed in about five days and they cleaned up well. They were very professional and knew" what they were doing. Everything worked out real well.

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, Concrete - Pouring & Repair

Pouring a foundation is the first critical step in building your home, so make sure you know what to look for if you're hiring a custom builder or doing a portion of the work yourself. Here are some foundation basics.

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.)
Foundation Repair

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.

This was my first time using the company, and everything went well. They had a competitive price, they did good work, and they didn't leave behind any messes.

All I did was pay for an “evaluation”—essentially an estimate. The aim was to prevent basement seepage. The plan proposed was to patch possible cracks from the inside, which seems to be less good than from the outside but better than nothing. However, this involved my removing drywall from the basement wall to determine whether there were cracks and then replacing it. Later I found another person who dug from the outside, patched a number of cracks and covered the outside of the basement wall with a protective substance. This is, I have heard, a better technique and it also didn’t involve removing and then replacing drywall from the inside.

I waited three days before I called them. They apologized and said they would send out the estimate the following morning. 4 days later, I called them again and they finally sent it over. Their work may be good but the customer service experience was a turn off

& Hunter) arrived 5 minutes before the scheduled time on a cold morning.... 16 degrees! They quickly and professionally went about their business and completed the work in about 5 hours. They cleaned up the areas where work was performed so well that you could hardly tell anyone had been on site. No cracks in mortar are visible and the foundation is stabilized. Great job!

and his team did an excellent job on our 107-year old farmhouse. Weather delayed the start of the project, but once underway, it went smoothly and quickly. Of course we are extremely happy that our house is now resting on a solid foundation (and you can feel just how much more solid it is, which gives us a great sense of security), but the best part for us is how comfortable the encapsulation and insulation has made our home. It's no longer cold and damp; the floors aren't cold; and the air quality is dramatically improved.

has had decades of construction experience, which showed on the job. He notices everything and stays on top of all of the details. He also graciously helped us with advice on other projects we are planning that are completely unrelated to the foundation work he was doing. In terms of cost, while an expensive project overall, we feel that we got our money's worth. When the project was underway and

Was told workers would arrive around 8:00 to 8:30; arrived right at 8:00. One worker wasn't sure there was enough clearance around the present pump to replace but, after a short conversation between the two workers, they figured out a way to accomplish. Workers were courteous and finished the projects by 4:30 or so. Work area was cleaned up nicely. Good explanation to me of how pump operates. Estimator (who was out the prior week) was also courteous and professional. Office staff was well organized, with several notices as to when the crew would arrive, etc. Estimator said the owner is a big Purdue fan, if that has any influence on the reader of this review!

We had a different company inspect our foundation and insist that we get all of our cracks fixed immediately at a cost of about $2,000. Turns out there was no rush, now that we know what to look for. We definitely recommend
