Without a doubt, Raise Rite damaged our brand new front porch when all we asked them to do was mud-jack our back patio. ******* takes no responsibility for his crew's actions and has refused to help us out with damage that we believe Raise Rite is responsible for.

When Raise Rite came by to do the agreed-upon mudjacking of my rear patio, it happened to be one week after our brand new front porch was poured (at a cost of $3200). The Raise Rite receptionist indicated they would need access to a garden hose, which I mentioned would be no problem there was a 100 ft garden hose in the rear of the house immediately next to the patio that was to be mudjacked. Upon arrival to the property the Raise Rite crew helped themselves to a different (disconnected) garden hose box on the side of my house and moved that to my brand new front concrete porch (a porch that was in pristine condition having just been poured one week prior, and had not even been walked on prior to Raise Rite's visit). In the process of doing their work to the rear of the property, they managed to gouge my front porch and cause scrapes right next to the front door! They also stained the new concrete porch and failed to clean up after themselves. Upon discovering this damage when I got home (the crew had already left the job site) I immediately called the Raise Rite office and talked with a friendly receptionist who took my message. The company owner has denied everything yet we have pictures showing just before their visit and immediately after.

Desired Settlement
600.00 to compensate for the front porch damage.

Final Consumer Response
The consumer indicated ONLINE that the business responded to this complaint to his/her satisfaction. He/she also stated:
They worked with me to offer a partial refund ($200) to compensate for the front porch damage. Thanks for the help.
