Sure Safe came out as promised, thoroughly inspected the foundation via the crawlspace and gave me a detailed report and estimate within a few days. Art was very generous with his time and honesty in speaking with me after the report was delivered.

They came back with a ridiculous assessment of my foundation that supposedly cost 12000 to fix using unconventional methods. I had three other foundation companies come out and their assessments were all consistent. The repairs I need according to these three other companies are not severe and not expensive unlike sure safe’s attempt to swindle using construction methods that are not even approved...

[Member Name Removed], we spend on the average 3-4 hours analyzing the photos and framing diagram taken of your foundation. Each proposal has photos that we took of your foundation with notes pointing out what we found. In addition to the photos, we include an engineered repair plan so that you can see what needs to be done to bring the foundation up to modern construction standards. The price you...

We have a 50 year old single family residence that was built in the 70s. The foundation needed repairs to restore it to its original strength, and retrofits to meet current earthquake regulations. I researched all the options to repair and retrofit the home. Sure Safe's was the best available. They installed 50+ brand new concrete footers and steel piers to secure the home. No other contractor off...

One of three quotes we got on our home for a big project involving cracked beams/joists and piers. Suresafe gave us a quick inspection followed by a quote- with the wrong math. When emailed questions pertaining to the 15k+ project few were answered- and when I called their tone was that I clearly didn't know much about foundation repair. I value when someone takes time to share expertise in their ...

Hello [Member Name Removed]: I realize you have had several bids, Perhaps you have confused us with one of the other contractors.

It went very well. Joe inspected and photographed all the supports in the crawl space. They were reviewed and annotated so that I could see exactly what their status was. I was also directed to their website to see what their process is for correcting the problems and upgrading the foundation at the same time. I bought into the process, signed the contract, and the work was completed in the time e...

Arts team was out the next day after we talked to view the property and take photos to give my clients an estimate for the work that needed to be done to their foundation. He got the report back less then 24hrs after visiting the home and I felt his price was very fair. I have had a few other clients who had foundation work completed by Arts team and they were all very happy with it. His estimate ...

Joe Hume of Sure Safe inspected my foundation and floor joists (at no charge). He crawled under all three sections of my house and took photos, which he shared with me. I remodeled my house top to bottom 11 years ago, and I have worked with many, many contractors. Joe stands out from the crowd. He was courteous, communicative, clean and efficient in his work, and honest with his assessment.

I have an 80 yr old home in Pt Loma and have never had the foundation inspected. I am not the original owner. I had noticed some drywall cracks inside and saw flier for Sure Safe inspections. I called and spoke with Art, he asked a few questions and I explained my situation. We set an appointment and Joe came out to do the inspection. Joe called ahead to let me know his arrival time, he got here a...
