Recent Review: Came on time for the estimate and then for the work itself. Aaron explained what should be done, and how they would do it. The workers were very professional at all times, cleaning up well after they were finished. They gladly accepted their $100 off coupon from a magazine that I found after I had already received their estimate.
Recent Review: Previous piering companies had tried and failed to solve our sinking foundation problem with undersized piers. After researching available options and getting quotes from a few companies, we chose Expert House Movers to excavate around our foundation, install custom made piers to support the weight of our house (full masonry, stone foundation, slate roof and terazzo floos) and spray a rubberized coating on the below ground portion of our foundation to stop future water penetrations in our stone foundation. They showed up promptly, performed the necessary work in a timely matter and were careful of the landscaping we wanted to keep. The job itself took longer than anticipated mostly due to additional work needed once the foundation was exposed (tuckpointing, new window wells, etc). There was minor damage to the sprinkler system and the water service line, but we were compensated for the damage by EHM. My only complaint was the amount of old drainage pipes and broken concrete that was left on site during the work and not removed until the end of the job.

Business Description: Have worked for a large company and covered 23 states since 1996. Missed being home, tired of over pricing people. No job is TOO big or TOO small. Distance isn't an issue for me. Quality work, reasonable prices, insured, with warranty and most jobs. I work alone for most of the jobs and will pull together a trusted crew when needed for larger jobs. I WILL NOT BREAK YOUR WALLET!! That is my motto, I stand by it.
Recent Review: I don't like them. Again, we were concerned about house and the basement and we're not sure if they treated them as they should have as far as quarantine element or get them evaluated and had no evidence they took care of that properly. I don't think that the end result was exactly the same of the salesman had promised. They drunk my beer, opened my refrigerator and got my beer, and they hit the bottles. They are really small younger guys and I ended up finding one beer bottle in a weird place and there were 5 more of them on another corner of the basement and there's no way that I put them there, and then where we find another beer bottle or not, my wife called the boss and the boss didn't answer the call. I did call, did complain, and the boss asked me what kind of beer and did replaced it. I was pissed because they basically stole from me. I haven't needed them to come back for any reason. They were charming the whole tie they were here but when ever they're here my beer is stolen.
Recent Review: The owner-operator was extremely helpful and informative on my different options. He was professional in his approach to getting around the yard and our landscaping. I was very satisfied with his help and he did a nice job. His pricing was very fair; that's one of the reasons I went with him.
Found the representative very pushy. He almost would not leave without us signing a contract (which we didn't). While the system of waterproofing looked good, it was expensive compared to b-dry. Also, he kept lowing the price in order to entice us into signing. Seems like he inflated it in the first place so he could do this.

sump pump is quiet and works well. Water still in basement, basement still damp and drainage issue outside is worse than when started. The sump pump drained onto the porch step and created mudd to accumulate onto the steps. We asked for the sump pump to be relocated, it was moved to another location that created a larger issue. See pictures below. Then we were quoted another price of $1,500 to fix the drainage issue. In addition, a large amount of dust made it way through the house via the ventilation system. It was listed in the contract that "air movers" and "dust collectors" will be used to, but that work can create "notice dust and disturbance to surrounding areas". I can understand the basement, but not the living areas up a floor.

The initial inspection and quote for work was done professionally and in a timely fashion. They were very knowledgeable and experienced. They communicated promptly and professionally. I approved the quote and was hoping to get the work done as soon as possible. They were booked for at least 3 weeks. They knew I wanted the job done as soon as possible. So when a spot came open in their schedule because of a cancellation, they called to see if I wanted them to start the job in the next couple of days. I was very happy with their knowledge of my needs. They communicated about when their crew would arrive and what they needed from me. They were prompt and professional in their work habits. Eric was quick to contact me when there were questions to be answered or decisions to be made. He kept me in the loop of what was happening. They were also cognizant of the weather and, they worked very late one night to make sure a particular portion of the work was done as rain was in the forecast. They finished the job and restored the lawn to a rough grade along with seeding it and putting down straw. I was very happy with the overall experience. I felt like they knowledgeable in their field. They were good about communication and I felt that the price, though not cheap, was reasonable. It has been a couple of months since the work was done and the footer drain and waterproofing of the exterior wall are definitely making a difference. I would recommend them and would use them in the future.
