Innovative Foundation Solutions, LLC
Recent Review: Innovative Foundation Solutions LLC. Started off professional, but in the end are not professional, do not care about customer service, do not have problem solving skills customer service wise, or professional wise with regards to my house repair issue. I even question the knowledge of the inspector. Where to begin.....they started off very professional. By setting appointment, e-mailing the confirmation, and background information on the gentleman who was to come out. I have a crack in my foundation, and a basement moisture issue. On 8-22-16 2:00 p.m., Jym Cook inspected my foundation. He told me told that i needed to piles to lift up that side and keep it stable. I was told that what we put in the crack (blackjack) wasn't good enough. It would be best to put concrete in the hole. Bottom line i needed two piles at $1,200 each and to repair crack $800. Upon further inspection, it is evident i have a water issue. My downstairs fireplace on one corner is disintegrating and that side of fireplace the water meter reads the maximum reading. According to Jym, it reads "live" water. The other side of the fireplace reads dry. The side of the fireplace that is wet is connected to a workroom, that we use as storage. Jym and i went in there and he noticed debris on the floor and said, "there is a ton of mouse poop here." We inspected the wall, and then went back to the fireplace. Then Mr. Cook came up with the most ABSURD theory about the live water- he told me " i think that the fireplace is wet because of mouse urine". Now, i found this absurd, and i gave him a tactful way out. I said, "i dont buy the mouse urine theory. 1- because i have owned mice and rats as pets, one teaspoon of mouse urine is the worst smell-i don't smell any urine! 2- to read a "live" water reading they would have to be urinating full-time, and i don't see any evidence of rodents, and once again- i don't smell urine. I would theorize that that room has an unfinished cement floor and anything we place on the floor wicks up water, so i buy that there is an issue with the floor." Instead of listening and considering what i said he doubles down on the mouse urine theory. This is an ABSURD theory! Then he proposed a french drain for $10,000, but he wanted to tear up my house walls and floors, Innovative Foundation Solutions LLC would repair walls, but not paint, and they wouldn't repair the floors, so that would mean at least another $10, 000 to repair the floors and paint walls, and whatever repair would be done to the floors would not match. I told him i could not afford that, how do people afford this? Then he listed, various ways to finance...then he did what i think is totally unprofessional. He asked me, what is my budget?" This is a repair, not a luxury remodel! The cost is the cost. I told him to bid the foundation repair, and french drain, it has 6 days and i have no bid. 3 days later, I called the office to inquire where my bid is, they said they would contact Mr. Cook. I didn't hear from him. The next day i called the office and demanded a supervisor. I was told that Perry is not available, she would call me back. I said, " i am ready to write a very harsh review on angie's list, have her call me back." I received a call waiting from Innovative Foundation Solutions LLC, so i hung up on my current call and answered with, "is this Perry?" I was told no, i asked, " are you a supervisor?" She said no. I said, "why are you calling me then? I asked for supervisor to return my call , and trust me you are not going to be able to help me." I was told a supervisor would call me back. I never received a call back from a supervisor, instead Jym Cook left me a voicemail message thurs 8-25-16 3:45 p.m. - that said he has been busy, he would work on my bid "this evening" and would e-mail it. It is now 8-27-16, and i still do not have a bid. In the meanwhile, i have had Cory Myron from Ramjack ( who i found to be honest and professional, and who i would recommend for foundation issues) come out to look at the foundation. He actually measured things, and he informed me my foundation is fine, no work needs to be done! He also assessed my crack repair and said it was fine. FYI-the room where Mr. Cook saw mouse poop has been inspected by 3 separate pest control companies. ALL SAID - I have NO EVIDENCE OF RODENTS. I do not fault him for concluding that the debris was rodent poop, i fault him for not listening to me when i said the "live" water was mouse urine-that was not a valid theory. If he wants to waterproof my basement, i need a valid theory on what the water issue is. I believe that is his job. I have no faith in his job qualifications. And, with the run around, calling the office and no supervisor ever calling me back, I have no faith in the company to back up their work. I would not do business with this company.

PUGET SOUND WATERPROOFING
Recent Review: PSW contracted to put in a sump pump new plastic a trench with drain rock under our house. Upon doing the work the crew foreman found that our kitchen drain had busted and everything was draining from our sink to underneath the house. The crew endured a very dirty and smelly job and did the clean up and the repair of new pipe and wood support under the house. The crew were so wet and dirty that they had to throw away the clothes that they were wearing. The crew did an excellent job and we would definitely recommend them for any waterproofing, basement, or crawl space work.

K Hudcon Construction Inc
Recent Review: Waterproofing: several contractors suggested sandblasting our basement concrete walls to remove paint & previous attempts of waterproofing. Kevin (K. Hudson Construction) took the time to research options & found a "green", soy based, product. It took a lot of elbow grease, but did a fantastic job! He then applied another "green" product which penetrates the concrete keeping moisture out. Kevin also suggested replacing our dilapidated concrete floor and installing a perimeter drain. This gave us a perfect start for a complete remodel, allowing ease of framing and any flooring of our choice. Plumbing: I can't even begin to describe the magic that Kevin (K. Hudson Construction) worked in our basement regarding the plumbing. If you own a 1900 circa home, you will appreciate when I tell you that we do not have a visible pipe in our basement. Electrical: We threw everything you can imagine at kevin (K. Hudson Construction) regarding the electrical for our new basement, including relocating our electrical panel. Not only did he meet our expectations, but had suggestions of his own that I know we will be grateful for in the future. Framing: The framing for our 1905 bungalow basement was a challenge even with a newly poured slap. kevin (K. Hudson Construction) really took the time shimming & adjusting to ensure an even drywall install. And, we do have beautiful walls! Drywall: I don't claim to be any expert on drywall as I've lived with lath & plaster walls for the last 15 years, but I can tell you that not a person has walked into our basement and not commented on the great job that was done. I've never had an easier time painting walls. Carpentry: The custom woodwork that Kevin did for us is nothing but suburb. We asked for & received a beautiful wood paneled tub surround; custom trim work; built-in cabinets. I can't wait until we have enough money to hire Kevin again for another project!

Recent Review: They did a great job. They were upfront about what they were going to do. They were on time - they said they would be here at 8:00 and they were here. They were very respectful of our home and cleaned up well. They did leave a bit of concrete residue outside, which was really tough to get off, but other than that, we were really pleased with them. I don?t have anything to compare, but our experience with them was positive. My husband was the one that selected them - I am sure that he had received a couple of bids. It was expensive, but I doubt if we would have found others much cheaper. We would use them again in the future if necessary.

NORTHWEST BASEMENT SYSTEMS
Recent Review: I got 3 bids from companies, and Northwest was the lowest. They did an excellent job and the crew was courteous, fast, and cleaned up after themselves. The representative was helpful in recommending the type of drainage needed and the number of clean outs. They also patched a hole in the basement floor and installed flood rings around the water heater and new flood check hoses on the washer. The work included a transferable lifetime warranty. Also they wrote into their bid that the job-site would be kept clean (which it was). We had an largely unusable basement before having this work done, now we've installed a new bedroom and carpets. This is the best $3,500 I've spent on the house.

CPerma-Dry Waterproofing & Drainage, Inc.
During periodic heavy rains we sprung a leak in our basement wall. I called Perma-Dry because both Angie's List and a plumber recommended the company, and I do not know the first thing about waterproofing a home. I scheduled a date and time for a salesperson to inspect the basement and provide me with an estimate. Mark was friendly and professional, and in his estimate he wrote that a sump pump may be required. What he did not elaborate in his inspection is the sump pump requiring GFCI, a term he wrote on the estimate but did not explain during the inspection. I am not an electrician and I have already established I do not know the first thing about waterproofing. What I came to learn during the scheduled work is that a) the crew confirmed a sump pump would be required, and that b) GFCI means a dedicated electrical line for the sump pump. We have a warbox-style home from 1942 and there is only so much we can do to the existing structure. Our washer and dryer are in the basement and now our washer will share an outlet with the sump pump, and I'm going to hope for the best. The work crew is nice but they do love to get animated about the work they are performing. I'm fortunate to work from home today and participate in phone conferences on mute so my colleagues didn't have to hear "BULLSH_T" being exclaimed loudly. Bonus use of the n-word when they returned from lunch. What would have been immensely helpful in the original inspection is Mark explaining, "We should check to see if you have the necessary electrical setup for the sump pump, otherwise you will need to hire an electrician and that could run $600." When I had Mark in our basement I was trying to think of every possible question to ask him before agreeing to an estimate and scheduling a service appointment. Where I failed in my exercise is that I didn't know the questions to ask during the inspection, and now the crew is installing a sump pump that I cannot reject because it's the only way I can achieve the goal of waterproofing the basement. A quick email to the company did not feign a reply from anyone other than a follow-up call with Mark who, professionally, explained he did his part to address his due diligence in the estimate to cover liability for the company. I explained to Mark that since I do not know the first thing about waterproofing (established) I did not know all the right questions to ask, and I am now having to authorize $825 for a sump pump in hopes that I don't need to hire additional servicemen to confirm the work is complete. The conversation was moot aside from him understanding my frustration. If you are a homeowner like me that is unfamiliar with waterproofing and home electrical, be sure to ask the salesperson if your home is properly set up to accept a required sump pump, or if you will need to schedule an electrician to wire your home ahead of the waterproofing work. If you are a homeowner like me that is unfamiliar with waterproofing, make sure you ask your salesperson for visual examples of the sump pump so you can adjust any configuration of storage solutions you had in your basement that must now be reconfigured due to the size of the pump and the space it will occupy. Because you don't know if there is more than one option for the sump pump (there isn't on the day of work). You can, however, hope the crew will not cut into existing pipes and do their best to work with the plumbing. FYI: the warranty offered for the drain system DOES NOT apply connection to an existing non-company installed drain line. Meaning that the sump pump required for completion of work is not covered by the drain system warranty when the crew connect it to your existing plumbing. The crew finished ahead of schedule and I was shown the results. The poured concrete will take 3-4 days to thoroughly dry; we can move our washer back at that time and reinstall all the hoses. I wish I would have known in advance how long it would take for the concrete to be dry but I guess that, too, was a question I was supposed to know to ask. The sump pump is already plugged into the wall socket but we'll need to rely on the battery powering the sump pump control box because we don't have another outlet to spare for the second plug. If we didn't have that outlet at the ready, I would be back on Angie's List looking for an electrician and I wish Mark would have had a checklist at the ready to make sure all of this was addressed before the crew tore open the basement floor with a jackhammer and then concluded a sump pump was necessary. The purpose of Angie's List is to reduce the risk of "Buyer Beware" for consumers, yet here is a business model that penalizes consumers because they don't know the questions to ask. I hope my experience will save you from a similar situation so you're not left frustrated with a company's reply being "I understand" on repeat.
