    I would highly recommend David Sauder to anyone planning a remodeling project. He is very reliable and does excellent work. He created exactly what we wanted for our basement. And he added ideas that really work well for our space. I would definitely use him again if we do any further renovations.

    Project review: Summary Petitioned for a contractor to perform a housing project for my home. Contracted with the business, All Mold & Basement Services, LLC. Was looking for an installation of a â French Drainâ system. The Owner/Inspector suggested a â Dry wellâ system. The work was performed over [4] four days including [1] one rain-out/non workday. Work was performed by [3] three workers. All things considered [though only [2] two weeks out from the project] I would definitely recommend All Mold & Basement Services, LLC. For any housing project that they say they can perform. Full Review: Inquired about a housing project via online request. Received [3] three responses the first was from All Mold & Basement Services, LLC. The Office Manager-Serena was pleasant and professional. Arranged for an appointment with the Inspector/Owner-Dave. Day of appointment Dave arrived as scheduled. I Explained what I had in mind, we walked the property, and I asked several questions. Dave listened to my thoughts, explained some ideas to solve the solutions to my housing project. And answered my questions. If you decide to have Dave and his qualified and experienced crew perform your housing project, remember that in addition to Dave being the Owner/ Inspector -he is also a salesman. This is not a knock on Dave but keep this in mind when discussing the signing of the contract to commit to an agreement. I found Dave to be available for additional questions, agreeable to open/further discussions, and understanding with a desire to satisfy me, his customer. Even when I called at an inopportune time, he answered my call, explained he was busy with another business matter but shortly called me back and apologized for sounding hurried. Provided me references to which each responded by phone with their experiences and good review and recommendation. I found his crew which included his son to be cordial and professional and experienced. They really worked well together and with me for the short time I was able to observe them. All [3] three men- Gab, Ryan and Mike are top notch workmen. Dave and his crew explained what they were doing and ask questions to see if everything was going ok and to my liking. And was willing to listen when I had questions as the job was going along. I have found in this day and age when it is hard to find good, reliable, dependable help and a company committed to performing good work, and in a difficult economy- with high cost and short amount of supplies. To every now and then find a company in this imperfect world, with no one being perfect, that you can at least feel somewhat good about doing business with them and would do so again. That company deserves to be mentioned among the good experiences we encounter in life. For any homeowner the anxiety of owning a home is enough by itself. So, when a DIY becomes a â More than you can handleâ -MYH it is good to know there are folks- companies- like Dave, Gab, Ryan, Mike, and Serena-All Mold & Basement Services- out there who can help. Thank You Dave and your team for easing some of our anxiety. Sincerely, Mark Brown Sr.

    Ryan, Sr. Inspector, was professional, courteous, and walked me through my basement, pointing out what needed fixing and exactly what would be done. Came on time and left on time... cleaned up their mess, too! Very fair pricing, definitely worth every penny for a mold-and-moisture free basement! Very highly recommended!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is a foundation in a house?

+

A house’s foundation is always located under the house itself. A foundation is the load-bearing portion of a home and is usually built below ground, though different types are built at different locations under a home. For instance, a basement foundation is built at least eight feet deep into the ground under the house to create living space below the ground level of the home. A crawl space foundation is built under a shallow trench beneath your home—typically between two and five feet deep. A slab foundation, also known as a monolithic or monoslab foundation, simply lays flat against the ground under your home. Pier and beam foundations also rest on the ground, but elevate the home using piers, typically about two feet off the ground.

What are the types of foundations for homes?

+
  • Basement Foundations: Also called a full basement foundation or a daylight basement, a basement foundation is one of the most popular types of foundations. One of the appeals of a basement foundation is that it offers additional living space under the home. A daylight basement typically includes windows to let natural light into the space. This type of foundation allows for homeowners to maximize the footprint of their home by offering a finished living space.
  • Concrete Slab Foundations: Also called a slab, monolithic, or monoslab foundation, this type of foundation is essentially a poured concrete slab that rests on the ground under your home. It’s typically one single piece and is relatively easy and inexpensive to build.
  • Crawlspace Foundations: This type of foundation provides just enough space under a home for a person to crawl around in to access plumbing or wiring, or store equipment such as a furnace.
  • Wood Foundations: These types of foundations are less common, though they were a popular choice in the mid 20th-Century. A wood foundation is typically made of pest and mold-resistant wood, like cedar or redwood. They are easy to install, though they aren’t as long-lasting as concrete foundations. Wood foundations are not ideal for climates that see a lot of rain and snow, as they must be built on very dry soil.
  • Pier and Beam Foundations: These foundations, which are common in coastal areas, use piers and beams to lift a house off the ground. Also known as pier and post or pier and pile foundations, the aim of pier and beam foundations is to support a home that is built on sand or soil that is prone to flooding, erosion, or ground shifts. A structural engineer needs to oversee the building of a pier and beam foundation to ensure its structural integrity.

How much does a foundation repair cost?

+

The typical cost to repair a foundation is between $2,200 and $7,500, though most homeowners pay around $4,800. The price of a foundation repair depends on the extent of damage. Major repairs that require the use of hydraulic piers can cost $10,000 or more, while minor cracks can run as low as $500. Fixing a leaky foundation by sealing it costs between $2,300 and $7,300.

What is the strongest foundation for a house?

+

Concrete foundations that are reinforced with steel plinth and beams are considered to be the strongest type of foundation—especially on lots with loose or muddy soil. This type of foundation uses a reinforced concrete beam built between the wall and the foundation. Homes built in areas that are prone to flooding or earthquakes also benefit from a foundation that contains steel plinth and beams.
