Du West Foundation Repair - Poor Workmanship
PASADENA TX -- Nov. 2, 2002 I contracted with du west foundation to do foundation work on my house located in lake livingston, tx.
This is work that has a life time warranty and this is the company that goes on radio every week and tell people they are the best. If you are thinking about using Du West Foundation, to do anything for you, ask them to let you talk to the person that they did job ref # 6038847 for. I will verify the type work they do and send you pictures of the kind of work they do. Better than that, I will take you and let you see the work they did.
The work they were hired to do was level the house and install needed pilling. My house had a sidewalk down one side and a concrete patio on the back of the house. Also had concrete steps that were attached to the patio and the concrete sidewalk. Du West tunneled underneath the concrete patio and sidewalk to obtain access to the house foundation, leaving a huge void underneath the patio and sidewalk that could not be seen.
After about a year, the patio and sidewalk started to sink, breaking up the concrete, the steps are pulling away from the house. It continues to sink with nothing to stop it. When I contacted Du West, the answer the radio host, (which is part owner of Du West, the man you hear on the radio every week telling you Du West is the best), was that they do not warranty flat work, meaning patios and sidewalks. I never hired them to do any work on the flat work and they had no right to destroy the patio, steps and sidewalk in order to repair the house foundation. I will be happy to show you their work.
