Companies for foundation repair?

foundation brickJason emails:

Yesterday's friendly almost-tornado helped loosen a hole in my home's foundation, which is now leaking. I wonder if you or the AOA community have any recommendations for people/companies that can do foundation repair work. Since it's work on the foundation, I'm more interested in the repairs being done correctly, rather than cheaply.

Whenever contractor-type questions come up here, Bennett often gets mentioned. But there are plenty of options out there, and we're curious if there are companies that specialize in fixing this sort of problem. (Basements/foundations seem like they could be hard problems to fix.)

So, got a suggestion for Jason? Please share.

The Zen Stoneguy does some pretty great work and is high quality. We have used him at least 3 times, once for foundation repair, nothing has gotten crumbly and it got done fast.

I was recently very happy with Adirondack Basement for a different sort of foundation repair. The estimator was fine but the actual contractor guys were great - they went above & beyond when another material was needed and actually came out cheaper than the quote. http://www.adirondackbasement.com

Francis Lindop of Lindop Carpentry (899-4418) and his multitalented crew have done several foundation repairs for me with excellent results. My house is old and has had several additions -- they repaired stone, brick, cement block, and concrete work quite competently and at reasonable prices.

The Z, Ipek and Sons Company in Albany has done some excellent foundation work for us. Their prices are very reasonable.

I went to one last month. My friend took his oath of citizenship. It is a great ceremony. A local school choir sang. There was a moving speech from one of the new citizens who grew up a refugee and at the age of 21 was finally a citizen of a country for the first time in her life. The League of Women Voters give warm welcomes, flags and voter registration cards to all the new citizens. It gave me such warm fuzzies. Everyone should try to go to one of these if they get the chance.
