A crack appeared in the brick fascia on my garage, after last year's drought. I cleared the grout and tuck-pointed the affected area and waited. When the crack appeared larger this August, I knew a foundation repair was in order. I've had experience with repairing foundations on three three houses I purchased for renovation. I obtained four quotes. Indiana Foundation Service wanted over $6,000.00 to level the floor and repair the foundation. I believed the recommendation included too many push piers. I did not believe the pier system they quoted would last the life of the house. Accu-level and Ram Jack both wanted a little over $2,000 to install two piers. Their recommendations were in line with what I thought the repair would require, but I still needed to get the floor leveled. They both quoted helical piers, which are quality piers. I've used Accu-level three times (including my own house when a footer in the crawl space failed) I've been quite satisfied with their work. I contacted A-1 Concrete Leveling and Foundation Repair because I used them several years ago to level my concrete patio. Ron Bowen recommended installing two piers with 27" footers and pump limestone sludge under my garage floor pad (to level it) for $2,250. I anticipated spending $2,500- $2,750 on the project, ($500 on the floor leveling) as a repeat customer, Ron discounted the job, which brought him below Accu-level and Ram Jack, He had a lower price, a pier system with a national life-time guarantee and using him meant that I only needed to deal with one contractor, so Ron got the job. Even though it was part of their price, I prepared the site, as much as I could, before they arrived. I removed bushes, myrtle and top soil, I wanted to preserve. Ron and his crew arrived on time, I watched the entire process. When I asked questions, Ron answered each of them. His crew did a great job on the clean up afterward. I believe I got my money's worth. By the end of the afternoon, we had our bushes, myrtle and top soil installed. I completed the little bit of tuck pointing that was needed to make the the repair final. By 5:00 pm we were showered and enjoying a cocktail on a porch swing. A few neighbors stopped by, while enjoying their evening walk. They couldn't tell that we had a construction crew in for repairs..
