"I called him a few more times to see what was going on and he said he was going to get someone out to further look at the house. Still no one has come by. Each" time I talked to him he made me feel like he was interested in the job. I feel he has blown me off for some reason. Maybe the job is too small and not enough profit for him? It is now
31, 2015. I don't expect him to do anything. Geez
, why don't you just man up and say you aren't interested in the job.

Crawl Spaces

Homes that aren't built on a slab foundation or basement feature crawl spaces to allow for the necessary access to plumbing, electrical and other home systems.

Many homeowners worry about the severity of foundation cracks in the basement.

Foundation Repair, Concrete - Pouring & Repair

Pouring a foundation is the first critical step in building your home, so make sure you know what to look for if you're hiring a custom builder or doing a portion of the work yourself. Here are some foundation basics.

Contractors say homeowners with this trait are the most satisfied with home improvement projects.

Relying solely on measurements to determine the condition of a foundation often leads to risks incurring further damage to a home, says Granott. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Dale W. of Boones Mill, Virginia.)
Foundation Repair

Measuring your foundation for levelness alone is not enough to determine if your foundation needs repair. A foundation expert will evaluate all the factors.

Unfortunately this is not something you will easily resolve; and even if you were to win, the amount of time and funds spent will probably exceed the cost of the actual repair.

Each state has different rules on what "as-is" means, but almost all use the term when it comes to realestate sales.  At two years, you are facing a hurdle that any issue could be the result of new conditions, acceptable wear / settlement, etc.  Has there been any changes in the area? (New house built next door, new addition, earthquake, flooding, etc?)

While you may have been given a home warranty with the purchase (do check your sales paperwork to see if there is any warranty and what it covers for how long) the house is sold to you as-is; it is your responsibility to raise concerns prior to taking over the house, so going back two years later is a huge up hill batle.

The home inspector is also going to be found faultless, as their reports almost always have words like "consult with an expert. . ." after each report section and they have disclaimers for missed items, etc. I got certified as a home inspector and was surprised at just how little they actually require you to know to become an inspector. They are really just an extra pair of eyes to help inexpereinced home owners look where most people don't look or go.  You even mention that the repair work was well masked, so you didn't notice it until you began looking for it.  A good inspector might have caught it, but you won't win any court cases proving yours wasn't good enough.

The Seller will claim that any foundation issues were fixed and resolved, which is why they marked "No" on the foundation issue section.  They fixed it; so it was no longer an issue.  If it came back, that is a new issue.  You and I know this is bogus, but to win in court you have to prove intent; and the builder can easily show they thought it was fixed.  Or, they might even be able to claim they were unaware - the repairs were from the previous owner, and were hidden so well HE and YOU didn't notice them.

So the next step is to meet with your home insurance agent.  As I mentioned above, if there have been any enviromental changes (a new house next door could have changed the underground water table flow or pressures, for example) you may be covered.  Even if there are no issues, you still may have a policy that allows for major repairs to be covered after a certian cost threshold, etc.  You'd be surprised at what your home owners insurance covers - find out first; they might have in house or low cost engineers who will do the initial inspection, etc.  They also will provide advice on your home sale; if they think you have a case against the Seller.

Best of luck on this issue.  Make sure any solution you pay for solves the cause (Stress on the wall), and doesn't just fix the results (cracks).

For this type of job, you need plans and specs from an Architectural/Engineering firm before thinking about contractors - and to get a building permit. Ben's method would work and done incrementally could cost well over $100,000 plus as he says, but this not really the most economic way to approach this big a job. A House Mover or Foundation Underpinning specialty company can usually slide your house onto a whole new foundation, or jack it up on steel beams and hold it there while a basement is dug underneath it, without any intermediate piers. The jacking/move cost would probably be on the order of $30-40,000, and a new basement probably about $40-50,000 - rough ballpark, though I have been involved in some 1000-1500SF single story jobs that went for under $70,000 total. I have been involved in a fair number of these type jobs - and the way the numbers come out, if there is room on the property to move the house, it is almost always nearly as cheap or cheaper to build an equivalent square footage (basement plus ground level) addition rather than add a basement under the house, and that way your new footage is half above ground so worth more on resale, plus you do not lose use of the house for a month or two. Second cheapest is usually sliding house to a new foundation, if property is large enough to do this - though house is totally cut off from utilities for a week to three. Most expensive, and usually only done in tight city environments or with full 2 story or higher houses, is adding the foundation in place, though your utility interruptions should be on the order of hours at a time rather than days or weeks. Talk to an architect - I think you will quickly lean towards the addition option rather than adding a basement - it is just too expensive to deepen foundations in most cases, plus you WILL get cracking in the house and possible water and sewer pipe problems in a move/underpinning job, which is not the case with an addition. This become more likely the case since you want to add 8 feet off the back of the home anyway - so why not just enlarge the addition and do it all that way - MUCH simpler, and MUCH less disruption of your life, and you get much higher resale return on your investment.

Foundation Repair reviews in Canton

My husband and I recently purchased a home and within the first month discovered a water leak coming from a basement wall when it rained. After removing the wall trim and some flooring, it was obvious the leak was not new and had been occurring for a long time. The previous owners didn’t disclose and we weren’t sure where the leak was coming from and had no clue on who to call for service. Did we have a drainage problem, slab leak, plumbing issue, or a foundation in need of repair? My husband and I were quickly able to
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
out the slab leak and plumbing issue which left us with foundation and or drainage problem with existing French drains or something new. We used the Angie’s List
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
feature and found
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. After reading his reviews I decided to give him a call. The first sign of good service is it’s in high demand.
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
’s schedule was very busy and his services in high demand. He listened tentatively to our story and set a date to come out and take a look at the property. When
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out, he observed a couple of potential issues which included top soil erosion and several gaps around the front porch and foundation which needed to be sealed. He also recommended we test the French drains to ensure there was no blockage occurring. What I liked instantly about
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
is he knew from experience where to
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
for problems and his mind was left open to exploring all the possible ways water could leak into a house. I think most servicers would have sealed the leaks and said “All done” only to find out weeks or possibly months later the leak was still there. So we made an appointment to retain
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
’s services. When
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out, he indeed refreshed our top soil around the house and graded the dirt. He sealed the gaps in both the foundation and porch. I also asked him to seal around our garage wall and drive way because we had some water seeping in when it rained and he gladly did that for us. After his work was done, he took the water hose and flooded the French drains to test drainage. After some time, the water started backing up. Instantly it was apparent whenever the rain was at a flash flood level of down pour, the French drain would back up to the porch and the water would enter through the foundation and porch leaks.
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
recommended clearing the drains with a drain cleaner machine. So we did just that. What we discovered after a lot of work, is one of the drains was covered with dirt and overtime a tree root had climbed in the end in
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
of water. The tree root over years had grown to approximately 10 feet and accumulated dirt and leaves.
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
check the remaining French drains and ran the drain cleaner through the lines to ensure there were no more blockages. After, he cleaned up the yard and made a nice gravel landscape around the newly rediscovered French drain exit pipe. There are so many great things I can say about
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
but the most important, was he allowed me to participate in the process. I the information I learned was worth twice what he charged. I know where all my French drain pipes run and their condition.
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
made sure everything I wished for was accomplished. I am confident with
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
’s guidance the leak problem which had occurred for years is resolved.
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
told me that leak problem if not address will lead to future foundation problems. Big thanks to

and his helper

for all their help. I thought the job would be about two hours but ended up taking all day. Thank you for seeing it through to the end!

This company sent an estimator to evaluate my problem with water in my crawl space seeping in through the ground. The rep was on time and very professional and honest. He told me that my issue was due to poor grading on my property and gutter/downspout issues. He said that he could offer me his services, but my real problem was that water was not being moved or kept way from my foundation properly. He recommended that I get my gutters, downspouts, and underground plumbing from my downspouts inspected and repaired first. Anything he could offer to sell me would just be a band-aid to the real problem in my case. It was good to hear this honesty from a company.
Fast forward a month, a few days ago, I went out with an umbrella during a downpour and noticed that all but one of my gutters was overflowing, and all but one of my downspouts were spilling water all over my foundation due to blocked or crushed underground drain plumbing. There was standing water on three sides of my house.....not good. It made me realize the guy from
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
was 100% right and it prompted me to write this review.
I now have companies that specialize in grading, and gutters/downspout drainage coming to fix the real problem.
Thank you
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
for being honest and not trying to sell me something I didn't need.....the

of a great company. The rep did quote me a de-humidification system for my crawl space just in case I still have an issue in the future. I will definitely use them if I need it.

was great to work with. They gave us a bid, then worked with us on a conditional bid in case the cement porch was in fact supported by the steps they were removing. No one could tell for sure, and most companies would not back up their service if the removal caused damage to the porch.

was prepared to

up the porch if needed and put in the right supports. They scheduled the work for particular days, and kept to the schedule exactly. I think they ended up having to do more hauling work and more loading by hand than they had anticipated, but it was all completed without any additional charge.

This could have been a horrible review but something happened to change my mind. Last year I had an estimate from
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
to lift and stabilize the foundation on one corner of my rental house. There were step cracks in the brick, cracks in the interior sheetrock and windows that were stuck on that side of the house. Estimate was in line with other companies. Did a little research and decided on
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
because of how long they have been in business, my real estate agent recommended either them or U.S.S., and we really felt confident in the opinion of the supervisor who gave the estimate. His name was Keris. He seemed very knowledgeable and earned our trust. I finally called to schedule an appointment. Work was scheduled to put five piers in the back corner of the house. Workers showed up on time and they put the piers. They did not, however, back fill the soil that was removed or fix the cracks in the brick mortar. We were told by
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the crew supervisor, that the piers had to settle and they would have to come back to complete the work. While they were there
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
spoke to me about renting the house, an agreement was reached on the rental, he signed a lease and moved in. In the meantime, I asked him several times about completing the work. He always promised to do it within the next few days but it never happened. Finally after two months I told him that even though he was my tenant, I was going to call
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
headquarters and complain if the work wasn't completed by the next weekend. It was never done so I called
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
to make a complaint. To my surprise, they told me that
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
had been fired weeks ago. He was still driving an
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
car so I had no indication that he had lost his job. Eventually I had to have him evicted. I made another appointment for
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
to come up to inspect and complete the work. This time Keris came. They discovered that only four, not five piers were put in but the house had no further sinking. They put in the fifth pier, back filled the soil around the area and fixed the cracks in the mortar. It took a long time to get the work completed because of a dishonest employee but they remedied that problem and fired him. Keris and the crew that he brought to finally complete the project were wonderful. They did a great job and I am finally confident that the work was done correctly. The house looks great. Thank you
Canton Foundation Contractors Provider Name Locked
, and especially Keris, for making things right.

completed the repair to my foundation on 7/22/15. I received the final engineer's report today, 7/30/15. Because of the shape of my house, the necessary repair was a bit complicated. Stratum did an outstanding job from start to finish. Every employee I encountered was courteous, professional, and competent. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to my closest friends or to family. They were on time and did clean and high quality work. I learned during this process that there is an art to successful foundation lifts. The crew doing the work at your property needs to be good. Mine was excellent.

I thought they did a great job. They arrived on time over the three days of work. They had to delay 1 day due to weather, but it worked out perfectly and they were willing to work around my family's schedule when we had company in town. We had multiple people come and bid the repair and they were able to come out and fix

the soonest when it was most worrisome to us. They were very professional and polite. They addressed each one of my concerns politely and I felt like they would go the extra mile to make sure that I was happy. They took the time and effort to ensure that the job was done well and to not produce any plumbing damage. I only say that the quality was a B because the piers they used were less expensive, but I was reassured that they would last with a lifetime transferable warranty. This gave them a competitive advantage and were motivated to do the work. They also gave me the option of the steel piers as opposed to the pressed concrete. They were confident the pressed concrete would work and I chose the pressed concrete. They gave advice on how to keep

repaired. I would be happy to recommend them to anyone who asks.
