Los Angeles Foundation Contractors from people just like you.

"Will , the owner, came out on a Sunday to give me an estimate. He was punctual and professional, giving me detailed explanations of the different" options I had, without any pressure. He spent about half an hour checking the foundation as well as checking the outside of the house to explain another drainage system besides the sump pump. He estimated the work would be done in about a week and it was. Whenever I emailed Will during the week he was prompt to write back. I am very happy with the work done and my house is definitely a lot sturdier. I feel better knowing that I'm more prepared for the upcoming rains as well as earthquakes.

"The company was great from the start! Called me back and (I believe) was very friendly on the phone. We set-up an appointment that was 2" weeks away. showed up early (a rarity in LA!) and was extremely friendly and professional. He was honest and made us feel less worried about our house. He recommended that we hire a drainage company in preparation for the winter and to preserve which we are absolutely going to do. A really great experience and we will definitely call them back to do work if we ever need it!

There are three major home repairs you have to do if you want to protect the value of your home. While they aren’t fun, you can’t put them off. See if you agree with these three unsexy home improvement projects you just have to do.

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 Los Angeles


Great experience start to finish. So patient and responsive to my questions about estimate. Work crew was fabulous--on time, friendly, and super thorough. They left my property so clean, despite 5 days of foundation dust. Just a pleasure to work with them. Highly recommended.
- Nancy S.

It went great; they're great. They are responsive and come out in a second if there are any questions. , the owner, comes out and answers any questions or problems immediately; the crew is nice, polite, kept the area clean, kind and hardworking. I don't have enough to say but these guys are just great.
- J K.

The inspector was on time, and even though they use this to sell foundation repair services, there was no pressure applied. The inspector showed me pictures of what is happening under the house. The result was that he uncovered an open pipe that was leaking water under the house and it saved me from a major repair by catching it early.
- Chaim L.

Even though the work had already been done, was funny and good natured about it. I thought that exhibited great professionalism where others might have gotten upset. I would definitely hire in the future if I ever needed his services again.
- Molly M.

Stop searching and call right now! Let me explain why: I hired Foundation Works right after I bought my house in 2013 because the 1929 foundation was in need of some repair. At the time I did not have the funds to complete everything that needed to be done so I chose just to replace about 20 feet of ...More at that time. The crew that did that job were excellent, fast, efficient and the work was completed with all the necessary permits. Fast forward to of this year, I called the company and asked them about completing the rest of the work though I was a little worried that since it had been 2 years that the original estimate may change. The owner, , came by and not only did he honor the original quote he actually under bid himself and was able to offer me an even better arrangement!! spent 2 hours with me that day investigating every square inch of my house. He also came inside and we looked at how the bones of the house could be understood from door frames and little cracks here and there. As an avid HGTV fan I asked him a thousand questions about all kinds of stuff (most of which had nothing to do with !) was so interesting and knowledgeable and genuinely interested in my house and teaching me. In that time I could tell that he got to know my house and me and that the quote he gave was tailor made for my unique situation.
When the crew arrived to do the work they were as awesome as in skill and personality. Each guy on 's crew showed great respect for me and my home, they arrived on time, worked hard and you could tell that they love their job. On the last day of work we had a sudden crazy downpour of rain, not only did the guys hustle to protect the work area they also jumped in and helped me cover some things in the yard that would have gotten ruined. These guys are so great you can just give them the keys and go do your thing without having to wonder what's up. checks in often and is always available to answer questions. When it came to say goodbye to the crew we all got a little teary eyed, it was like saying goodbye to some good friends.
In the end, the work was beyond amazing. When you look under my house it's like brand new. Not only did they completely upgrade my foundation but they also took great care to make it clean and safe. I could go on and on about all the little extras that and his crew did for me. You will not find another company that will treat you with the amount of professionalism and attention, kindness and humanity. And if you don't care about those things then also let me reiterate that they will also do excellent work at a super fair price and they will not skimp and they will go above and beyond to make your house perfect. Thanks ! Thanks to the crew: , , , and everyone who came out!.
- Renee B.

was great. He did a thorough inspection of my foundations (house, garage) and gave me some great pointers. I can't do the work at the moment, but he gave me some great tips and suggestions on how to off any future foundation damage and erosion. Great guy, very friendly, very helpful, very professional, ...More and incredibly informative. He was at my house for a good amount of time. No hard sales pitch, at all.
When I am ready to do the work, you can bet I'll be having at do the job.

- Mario G.

This company is a class act. Everything from the inspection to the actual work and final finishes was a perfect experience. Everyone was helpful, courteous, professional and went out of their way to make me happy. This was one of the best contractor experiences I've ever had. I highly recommend Foundation Works.
- harry P.

They did an excellent job. Excellent service and quality of product was provided by . The owner, Llan, and contractor of the company were so personable. They were at our every beckon call throughout the project. At any of hour of the day he answered our questions and even unscheduled. Rest assured, will ...More see your project through to the end. I am a paramedic, and its so nice to see and meet someone else who shares the same vision of service.
