    Default HELP!!!!!!!!!!!! foundation repair need help asap

    ok here is what is goin on I found out I had termite damage so I had a family friend/contractor to replace my floor joists the front part of my house stayed on budget just fine then halfway through the rear he said he needed double the original estimate and couldnt give a god reason why. but needless to say he left me with about 300sq ft of my floors tore up and all there is in its place is the dirt in my crawl space. so I need help on how to repair the original foundation and pouring footers on grade to match my existing repaired floors

    A good lesson isn't it?

    If a contractor quits in the middle of a job, you either continue it yourself or, if you don't know how, have another contractor continue it (good luck finding one). Learning how to do it takes more than 5 minutes.

    I hope you didn't pay this "friend".

    We need pics. The more the better.

    Load them in a place like photobucket.com or similar, then give us the details. OR, email them to our member jlmcdaniel, write "floor photos" on the subject line and he'll post them for you.
