I went on Angie's List and I saw them there, and I wanted 3 different estimates so I got them to give me an estimate. The estimate was comparable to the other one. They were really friendly. The price was very high to me. I have lived in this house since 1964 and my floor is uneven and it has never bothered me. I had put wooden flooring in the house and they couldn't put it there because of the de...

They came out to give me an estimate but they haven't done anything.

I will reassess the issues discussed with Marc and make a determination after I check out several options for me to consider that Marc discussed with me.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Marc assessed my situation.  He gave me several options.  He explained that if Olshan did the work (exposing the outer wall and sealing the wall/foundation the price might be $10/20,000).  He also made suggestions for several other options I might consider at this time...to at least determine what is creating the areas of dampness in a portion of my basement wall.  I will exercise those several options before I make a final decision, i.e., checking the french drains in the area, to be sure there is no clogging, etc.  Marc was professional, on time, very knowledgeable, and I would not hesitate contacting Olshan for the larger project if I decide to go that route.

Our house was built in 1972 and had settled roughly 5" across 25' because of inadequate piering and soil drainage.  Olshan installed 7 helical piers and cut 3 original builder piers.  In my mind I imagined a completely level house when we were done but the reality is that remodeling over 40 years and window replacements meant to do so would cause significant damage and cost to the rest of the hous...

Installed helical piers to lift and support foundation

It took longest just to get someone to come out to inspect and prepare a plan/estimate.  The crew that did the work started on time, was on the job early each day, kept me apprised of what was happening, and cleaned up and roped off the work area daily. They were finished even a day early, and left the property looking even better than when they started.  You'd never know any digging had gone on. ...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
19 pilings were installed around the perimeter of the basement and garage.

Overall, I learned from the tech about what might be going on with the foundation and what signs to keep an eye out for with respect to any movement in the future.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
This was a consult with a foundation tech about cracks in the basement foundation (water seepage in the cracks). Also the pipe from the sprinkler system which extends from the inside to the outside of the house was bent downward and water had been leaking from that pipe and it appeared that the foundation might have been sinking for that pipe to have bent downward like it did. The tech showed up on time and thoroughly checked inside and outside of the house explaining to me what he was looking for should the foundation be in need of repair. It turned out that I did not need any major foundation work done but was told that a sump pump and some landscaping to keep the water away from the house might help with the water issue. I was very pleased with the discussion and would not hesitate to contact this company again.
