This home we’ve owned for 26 years.
It’s a 1973 home, so it’s 41 years old.
So we knew downstairs in our basement we had some problems,
because during the winter particularly when the ground would get soaked,
we have this basement area and we’d have water that would come in.
The wall was buckling. You could see where the water was coming in,
and even the block had pushed off
the foundation about 1 or 2 inches.
Over the 40 years, the hillside in front of us had pushed
the dirt against the foundation and it was
basically just pushing the house off of the foundation.
So my wife and I said, look this is where we’re going to live until we die,
that’s our retirement home.
So we said, we need to get it fixed, and we need to fix it right.
I stopped one day and asked our neighbor,
you know, you had USS. Tell me about the work they did.
And they said, well they did a great job. And I looked at the Better Business Bureau.
There was the A+ rating.
So I thought, this is good. When the project manager came out,
he was such a great,
just a really good man, just a wonderful personality.
He was just such a personable person to work with, and that was so great.
It was so nice to know that I wasn’t just a customer,
but it was like I was, you know, being treated by a friend.
So I had confidence in him. So the project manager gave me
the confident feeling that I was not just working with somebody who was going to say,
well let’s see how much we can get out of him,
but was going to actually tell me
what I needed to do, and give me the best estimate
or something that would actually do the job.
It’s nice to know that when it rained yesterday that I didn’t have to
go down and find any water.
It’s totally dry. I went down there this morning- absolutely, completely dry.
