Foundation Repair reviews in Richmond

The work crew showed up on time both days, did a good job and were polite. There was some mess left under the house, but overall the work was done correctly and in a timely manner.

Provider name locked. sales reps are extremely good at what they do, so if you call them, expect to hear a hard sales pitch and be prepared to make decisions on the fly. Cost came out to be higher than I expected, but quality of work was exceptional. Took crews 2 days to completely insulate, waterproof, and encapsulate my crawl space. Crawl space is beautiful now. Some minor cosmetic damage was caused to foundation parging, but Provider name locked. gladly reimbursed me for costs to repair. All in all a good experience and my electrical/HVAC bills are down roughly $100/month (likely synergistic with outdoor temperature levels).

I have done home renovations since I was in college and I currently hold a BS in Mechanical Engineering as well as a Masters degree. I understand construction and knew exactly what I wanted. I wanted and requested Provider name locked. to come to my home to provide me an estimate for taking the "bounce" out of the floors of my house which was built in 1936. A beauty of a home with solid brick walls and slate roofing. However, Provider name locked. came with the agenda of selling me work and signing me up (committing me) to the work. The Provider name locked. representative was nice and polite until he gave me the options of what Provider name locked. could do for me. My response was to ask for the Provider name locked. representative to leave me the estimate and I would think about it. I have many projects in need of resources for this house and Provider name locked. in my opinion just another project to be considered and prioritized among many.
Unfortunately the Provider name locked. representative would not take "No" or even "Maybe" for an answer he kept pressing and pressing for a commitment. I once sold timeshare property in my youth and was schooled to never take no for an answer and to keep pushing. This by many would be considered "High Pressure" sales. I am familiar with the technique and appreciate that I need to not bend but instead thank the Provider name locked. representative for his time, but ask he leave any quotes with me for consideration. This dance continued for over 20 minutes before the Provider name locked. representative relented and simply printed a quote as I requested.
My fear and opinion is that Provider name locked. uses this pressure sales technique to take advantage of the elderly and others vulnerable to "pressure sales". They have a very friendly TV commercial but in my opinion their representatives stray far from being family oriented and simply will stop at nothing short of intimidation to secure a commitment from the unexpecting customer who simply wants to have a "Free Estimate" (which Provider name locked. advertises) but will ultimately get a hard sell and likely be bullied into work they may or may not need, can afford or will find elsewhere cheaper.
My experience is based upon a single encounter with Provider name locked. , but it is my opinion that representatives are encouraged to intimidate and hard sell potential customers. I would advise anyone who is considering Provider name locked. to perform work to prepare themselves for a hard sell and do not be afraid to say NO! and stick to it. Also besure to always get at least three quotes from licensed contractors before agreeing to have work done. Additionally ask for references which are similar to the work you are considering having done.
In my opinion I was very much disappointed with the Provider name locked. representative, his bulling tactics and ultimately my customer experience.
