BBB Business Review for Olshan Foundation Repair in Houston, TX

Your home’s structural integrity depends on the strength of your foundation. It supports everything else – walls, windows, floors, doorways, roof – so when your foundation is damaged, it can cause serious problems throughout your home. 

Like most things in life, your foundation is subject to environmental stress. Expanding and contracting soil, excessive moisture and inadequate drainage are some of the most common threats to your home’s foundation. Over time, environmental stressors can cause a foundation to shift, crack or settle unevenly. And homeowners often miss early warning signs of foundation damage. 

Homeowners spend about $4 billion annually stabilizing faulty foundations, and those costs may increase as more homes are built in areas known for shifting soil.

Understanding risk factors and signs of foundation problems can help you protect your most valuable asset from irreversible damage.

Download the Guide to Foundation Repair to learn the most common signs of foundation damage, methods of repair and associated costs, as well as how to choose the right person to repair your foundation

Dealing with Olshan was an absolute pleasure.  I was in the middle of preparing a protest to my appraisal when I called for an Olshan estimate of repairs.  A polite man named Mike came out and walked, measured and calculated while I was able to go on about my own projects.  It usually takes a few days to get the estimate prepared and approved for big jobs so it looked like I wasn't going to have their estimate in time to include it for the protest hearing.  When Mike understood the need for a quick turnaround, he contacted his supervisor and they made it happen.  I just came from the hearing and they lowered the appraisal by $69K.  Having the Olshan official estimate to show them is definitely what sealed the deal!  A huge thank you to Mike and the home office folks for making this work on such short notice!

Confident. Enthusiastic. Organized. Knowledgeable. Efficient. If these attributes are important to you and your home investment, I highly recommend Kelly Baker at Olshan Foundation Solutions. I had two other estimates come out and both stated that we had foundation problems and it would cost $18-20 thousands dollars. Kelly Baker took the time to show me what to expect from foundation problems. He walked the interior and exterior of our home with me and clearly shared had none of the signed to indicate slab damage. This is a company worth doing business with because they will only do the work if needed. Kelly could have done what the other companies did, but he is a man of integrity and an awesome representative for Olshan. In the future if I need foundation repairs, Olshan is the only company I will trust to do the work!

Paid Olshan to waterproof my basement. Kept all original paperwork. The business card, brochure, and truck the guys drove all said Olshan on the side. Called for warranty work, told the warranty was no longer valid as Olshan had "gone out of business." Turns out they closed their branch in my state, and sold it to a franchise. Franchise says they cannot honor Olshan's warranty work. I'm in a southern state, and I've read of other state they have done the same thing. Bottom line- they can't stand behind their work, look elsewhere.

The Olshan representative, Richard Solsberry, was extremely informative, efficient and such a professional. He was more than able to answer all questions and make me feel Olshan can certainly do the best job.

I noticed some cracks in my sheet rock and some pulling away of the walls from the ceiling. I was very concerned that my house may have a foundation problem. I made an appointment for Olshan to have an expert access the situation. The technical arrived right on time, asked to see the areas I was concerned about. He did a thorough inspection of the house inside and out. He was very knowledgeable of the area and ground type. He assured me that what I was seeing was just settling and I didn’t have anything to worry about concerning the house foundation. He even went the extra mile to point out some ground swelling under my driveway that may be caused by rain runoff, and what I may want to try to fix the issue. I feel so wonderful that I called the experts at Olshan, and will recommend them to anyone with concerns about their house foundation.

I feel scammed. In 2005 I had Water Lock system installed in my home. I have not heard my sump pump kick on in a while so I wanted to contact to someone to schedule service maintenance. The St. Louis location is closed so I contacted Houston location. The person I spoke to was rude and said that each location was separate franchise and she could not help me. I then call the Kansas City location, and got the same response. I chose Olshan, because everything on their paperwork read “since 1933”. And it came with a lifetime transferrable warranty. Well Olshan will not honor it because it according to the people I spoke with in Houston and Kansas City, the contract and the warranty were for the St. Louis location only. There was absolutely nothing in any of the paperwork that indicated each individual office was a separate entity. The entire brochure and selling pitch is based on “70 year of experience” and of course the lifetime warranty which is now useless. Buyer beware, do not hire Olshan.

Ken Farris from Olshan came out to check on what we thought was going to be a foundation problem. Ken was prompt and honest. After carefully listening to our concerns, he evaluated the situation. Lucky for us, we have no foundation issues AND we weren't sold something we didn't need. I highly recommend Olshan for evaluations and estimates! What a great experience!

I had spoken with Richard via phone (he happened to answer Olshans #) when I called. We spoke briefly and the way he spoke to me gave me a feeling of self assurance. As a result, I asked if he would come to the house. We set an app't and he showed up on time. He spent three hours at the house, and kept me apprised of what he found and what he was doing to create a proposal. He walked us through the various options, discussed the possible financing arrangements. We decided on an option, have been approved for the repair and are scheduled for their repair crew to come to the house. We are very, very satisfied with Richard and Olshan to his point. We doubt that opinion will change.

We had an excellent experience with Olshan representative Allen who was here to evaluate our foundation on Tuesday, 3/17/2015 at 3:30 PM. Allen was very truthful and took his time to evaluate all the issues that we explained to him and evaluated the whole house. He explained to us to make sure that we do run the sprinkler system every day for few minutes to keep our foundation healthy. He explained that only one corner was little less than quarter of an inch off and that I would not need any work done. We appreciate honest opinion. By the way I had invited four Foundation fixers to evaluate our foundation and provide proposal. Three of them showed up, two found no issues including Olshan and one vendor slept me with a 5000 Dollar proposal to fix (NOTHING). THANK YOU once again for a very satisfied customer. We will never forget to recommend OLSHAN to all our friends. Anwar and Yasmin Motan 12527 Juniper Crossing Houston TX 77041
