Failed foundation repair
Foundation repair performed in 2009 failed. Approximately two years after the repair, removing the finished walls over the repaired area to investigate a water leak revealed new cracks in the foundation. The leak was secondary to new wall cracks and buckling in the repaired area. The metal plates for the repair were no longer flush with the wall, and one of the anchor rods could be pulled completely out of the ground intact. I found it necessary to hire another company to correct the damage, incurring significant expense, as it was necessary to tear out finished walls and a bathroom. Olshan has little interest in warranty work.
4 years ago,we paid Olshan Foundation Repair to fix our foundation.After 3 attempted repairs,our foundation is worse than before they started.We gave up & asked for a refund which they replied that they needed $500 more for a 4th attempt.We promptly refused & haven't heard from Olshan since.I guess we could put a an in ground pool in that room but would rather get it fixed by a TRUE contractor instead.Their lifetime warranty doesn't seem to be so "lifetime".Hopefully this message will wake Olshan up & give future foundation repair customers some valuable info.
