I had been stressing about getting a structural pillar at the front of my house fixed for over a year, there had been a watermain break that had caused some damage which at the time looked very minor but after about 6 years looked like it might be a much bigger problem and was past the timeline where insurance would help. About a year ago I called a company on homestars and they did not offer to come out to look at the issue but instead suggested it would be 10K to 20K and would require extensive work inside and outside the house. I got scared off by this number and basically tried to ignore the issue. A week or so ago I decided to start calling around to a few companies and move forward with getting the work done at whatever it costs. I had a couple more companies give estimates over the phone of $4,500 to $15,000. When I called Rooterworx Oleg offer to come out have a look and was at my house less then an hour after I had called. On the spot he quoted me around $900, he said they would excavate and inspect the areas of concern and if there was a bigger problem then it might be more but if it just needed the parging it would be the $900, he also said based on his above ground inspection that he did not think it would be a bigger problem.
I also pointed out a few other parging issues around the house and Oleg said they would tackle all the additional stuff for just $200 while they were out.
I decided to move forward with Rooterworx, I was a bit nervous since the price seemed to good to be true but since I could see on homestars they had lots of good reviews I figured they must know what they are doing. Oleg and one of his team members came 2 days later excavated the area in question showed me that there was no major issue and just re did the parging and that was that. There was no attempt to up sell me on anything they just showed up and got the job done, could not be happier and the price was more competitive than anyone else I talked too although the other vendors did not even take the time to come look a the job
I wish the first company I had called was Rooterworks would have saved me a year of stressing out about how to afford what I thought was going to be extensive and expensive.
@Oleg Thanks for the great service.
