A few months ago, I had dug a hole beneath my foundation in pursuit of a plumbing issue I knew was near the edge of the foundation. In hindsight, I should have just busted up the concrete to expose the issue (which turned out to be a lot less of an issue than I'd imagined). Nevertheless, here was, with a hole beneath my house big enough for me to crawl inside, and I called Redeemers to get an opinion on refilling the hole in a manner that would restore integrity to the foundation and the earth beneath it. Mike came out and gave me his opinion, gratis. I don't know if he'd do that for everyone, but he was very cool and suggested a "pier." Ultimately, I decided to try a different tack, but he showed me how he'd do it and explained the benefits.I decided to go a different route that was a little more DIY friendly--I burned up the undisturbed earth surrounding the hole with mud-packed cinderblocks and filled the void with even more mud-packed cinderblocks to create complete displacement of any water. Nevertheless, I thought Mike was a cool guy and very friendly, and if my foundation cracks as a result of the way I went about it, I'll probably call Redeemers and ask for Mike.
