Foundation Repair reviews in Northbrook

    Ulb-Dry Waterproofing Inc
    Everything went great from the first appointment with Stoyan to review the issues, scheduling with Slavka, and finally the workmen who came to do the jobs. They showed up within the one hour time frame given, gave a 30 minute "heads up" call, did the jobs neatly and were polite. I would definitely use this company again. Very professional and responsive.

    The Real Seal LLC
    I got 3 estimates for repairs for cracks in my basement foundation wall. The first was the cheapest but would have just filled in the crack. The second pointed out that the same wall had a previous crack and a large V shaped crack so that just filling in the cracks seemed insufficient and would have broken through the wall and added drain tile behind it to drain halfway around the house at the sump pit, and was by far the most expensive. The Real Seal was the third quote and was not only in the middle financially, but persuasive about why its proposed solution of carbon fiber staples to reinforce the wall made sense for my crack pattern. The rep and the ultimate technician were on-time, polite and seemed thorough. The warranty seems solid. Although I won't know for awhile whether the solution worked, I was happy with how the work appeared to go. The technician spent some extra time to help us avoid taking out some fixtures that were built into the wall, even though it caused extra work, and was polite throughout.

    It well exceeded my expectations. Ben came out and was very easy to work with. Very clear and great attention to detail. Very reasonable site visit in terms of time, followed by George who came out and sealed the cracks. These folks are the real deal (no pun intended). It's great to be able to find a company where they come out, no frills, this is what you need, you book it, and you really don't even have to check the work they do-- they do what they say and they do it well. I will for sure be calling Ben again without question!

    So happy we made the right decision. These guys were prompt and professional. The quality of the work is excellent. I need a drain replaced, nothing more or less. Others wanted to do more and it just wasn't warranted. I am more than satisfied with the work that was performed.

    Atlas Restoration LLC
    Working with Atlas was a very unpleasant experience.  I contacted them in August 2014 for a major structural problem with my house.  The work entailed repairing my foundation, tuckpointing, and concrete work.  I made it clear that I wanted them to take responsibility for the entire job.  They arranged that and got me contracts for their work plus contracts from two companies for the tuckpointing and the concrete.  I was in a hurry to get the work done and it wasn't until they finally showed up in December that they told me the work wouldn't be completed until the spring.
    They did their portion of the work and left a mess of my yard with the shrubs left to die lying in the yard.  When they actually lifted the house I was onsite and told to say when I wanted them to stop lifting.  I couldn't believe they were asking me as I assumed that I hired them as experts.  I was told that homeowners often decide how far to go because there is a trade off between leveling the foundation and creating cracks inside the house.  I would strongly suggest that while the house is being lifted is not the first time you should discuss this with the homeowner - and relying on a complete amateur is ridiculous.  
    When they finished their piece of the work they demanded full payment and I told them that I had contracted for the entire job, not just their portion.  They pointed to the "small print" of the contract, which did indeed contradict our verbal agreement.  They told me that they would sue me if I didn't pay immediately.  I paid.
    I also told the owner that I would express my dissatisfaction on Angie's List, and again, he said he would sue me if I did so.  I simply said that it's completely within my rights to tell the truth, which I have done here.
    I would never, ever work with Atlas again.

    They are all over the place around here. We had gotten a couple other quotes, and price wise they were fine. We learned that we didn't really need some of the work in the extent that they did but it is good that we had it done. There was one part that they couldn't do because of the way our foundation is, and it would have been a couple thousand Dollars more. We found out they couldn't do it when their workers were here. They were good, quick, and efficient. They were very respectful of everything in the house. We were pleased with what we had done.

    Repair tech called and asked if he could come before the time window they gave me!  Was helpful to me so I didn't have to sit around for two extra hours.  Fixed the problem and was in and out in about an hour. Happy with the repair.  Probably won't know until the Spring when it rains a lot if it's going to leak again, but I know they will come back out if I have a problem.

    Found Atlas on angies list and had them come out for a quote along with 2 other companies. Atlas had the best price and availability for repair dates. We have had very heavy rain since the repairs were completed and not a drop of water. What most impressed me was a small discrepancy on a spot in the basement that was not repaired. I called the next day and they did not even question me, just sent out the crew that same day.

    Hynek Construction
    I reached out to Hynek after determining that my chimney, and not my foundation, was the reason I was getting a small of amount of seepage in my basement.  I filled out the request form on his website and he called me right back.   Two days later, he left a vm on my cell phone saying he was in the neighborhood.  Turns out he went up on my roof and diagnosed the problem.  He called me to tell me what the problem was, which requires work that unfortunately he doesn't do.  Anyway, he said it was free of charge!  Really generous of him and much appreciated.
