I have a personal interest in this situation… it’s my house!!!:shock:
I have two vertical cracks in my poured basement walls. The cracks are spaced far apart and only one (near the day-light corner of house) has settled. The bricks on the front of the house have cracked and opened up, the trim board joint at corner of house has kicked out… all the classsic signs of a foundation failure.
I know it will be costly so I will get several estimates. Does anyone have any actual experience with companies that repair foundations? Best method? Warranties? Etc.,
My house is a brick ranch, approx 2800 sq ft, with full basement. Any comments would be appreciated. Oh, I know the $$$ will be high but what kind of costs have you seen.
When I finally have this repaired I plan to take lots of pictures. I think it would make a great presentation on why to hire a HI.
Thanks in advance.
