Floor Joists and Beam Repair Review

Marlene H.
Noblesville, IN 
 
Category: 
Structural Engineering
 
Services Performed: 
Yes

Hire Again: 
Yes
 
Approximate Cost: 
$6,000.00
 
Home Build Year: 
1977
 
Description Of Work: 
I have lived in my house for seven years and my floor was uneven and had a large bump. When my cat ran through the room, the floors shook!  I had been in the crawlspace several times myself to access the damage. There was no moisture barrier and all of the vents were open year round.  As a DYIer, I was looking into doing the work myself,  I decided I had to hire an expert for a job that major.  I do not like hiring contractors, number one because I don't trust them and number two they charge so much. I needed my main beam, some sill plates and several floor joists replaced as well as a moisture barrier laid.  I got several estimates and chose American Basement Solutions. My reasons for hiring them is because it is a family business, Larry Jr. was very informative and honest with the work that needed to be done and the price was right.  After all was said and done I had 16 floor joists replaced 24 feet of main beam replaced, 20 feet of sill plate replaced and three additional piers installed.They also laid the moisture barrier that I had purchased three years ago to do myself and never did. I am going to tape the seams of the moisture barrier and install the moisture barrier on the walls myself as well as close the vents off and place the underground drain pipes from the gutters.

Member Comments: 
The job took three days and I was there on day one and three.  The  first and second day Aaron, Josh and Daniel were working, on day three Larry Jr, Josh and Daniel were there and Aaron came by between some appointments to help out. The guys were GREAT!  They took time to answer all of my questions and explain to me how to encapsulate the crawlspace and run underground drains for my downspouts to draw moisture away from the house so I could do it myself to save money.  The guys were very professional and only took a couple of breaks. They didn't even take a lunch break on day three and they were here for over 6 hours! The job is done very well and looks so nice. I was down there with them on day three watching and learning. There is no way i could have done this myself. THANK YOU to the team for your hard work and attention to detail. The job site is completely clean and you can't tell I had anything done from the outside. Too bad I can't show it off!!! I cannot say enough good things about this company!

Description Of Work: 
In late January, we had a septic pipe burst and had a mess in our crawlspace...having trouble getting answers from insurance company and getting work completed quickly, American Basement Solutions was able to come out and give us a quote and discussed with us a solution of Encapsulating our crawl...within 2 days, they cleaned the sewage spill thoroughly and installed a drainage system and then encapsulated the crawlspace! Our crawl looks so nice and clean with what they did and all for a great price!!  Our problem was fixed quickly and professionally and they arrived at time they told us they would and completed the work when they said! It has been a few months and it still looks the way it did when they first completed...nice and clean...and I can go under my house without getting dirty or muddy!  The environment is so much different in our crawl now...should tell a difference this next summer and winter with our heating/cooling bill!  I would recommend American Basement Solutions to anyone needing work done in their basement or foundation!  Very professional and polite to talk and work with!!
 
Member Comments: 
While working with our insurance company to get this taken care of, we had waited for approx 3 weeks with the smell and everything else going on under our house that I finally took it upon myself to call American Basement Solutions and within a few days the job was completed and we were back to normal but not only back to normal, we were actually better than before because of the crawlspace encapsulation which we learned was a great service for our home in the long run!!  From the time they gave us the quote to when the workers showed up to do the job, everyone was so polite and very knowledgable on what they were doing and kept me up to date on what was going on! Like I said before, I will recommend them to anyone I know needs work done in their line of work!!

Rockwell Basement Egress Wells

American Basement Solutions recently installed a Rockwell elite egress well with 4'x4' basement egress window. Below are pictures of the installation and the Angie's List Review of the work by the homeowner. Give us a call today 1-877-409-2837 for a free quote


Angies List Review:


Description Of Work:
American Basement Solutions installed an egress window in our basement. They had to dig a hole to install a 72"H X 66"W egress window well, cut a hole in the 10" thick poured foundation wall and install a window.
Member Comments:
Considering it was January, there were climate conditions of cold weather and muddy ground which they were completed prepared for. They arrived on time, well equipped with all necessary materials. They estimated three days and finished in three days.

The first day the dug the hole and put in new tile (which was not in the original estimate). They made several trips to inform us of the progress and ask our opinion on situations where we had a choice. The night before the second day we experienced thunderstorms and received over an inch of rain which made the site difficult to navigate. They had planned for this rain and there was no water in the hole next to the house. Temperatures dropped to 30 degrees that day but they stilled cut the hole and installed the window as planned. But the muddy ground made the third day necessary.

On the third day they completed all weatherizing for the new window and cleaned up the surrounding area completely and finished grading the outside yard and left it ready for grass seed.

We are completely satisfied in every way. We would definitely use them again.
