Complaint: We had coastal bend come out to repair part of our foundation, both the owner and his partner came and looked at it. On several occasions I asked them if it was going to be a problem to do half of the foundation and the do the other half at a later date. They both said that it would not be a problem at all. They did the work and gave us a warrenty for it. All of the knock out spots in our concrete look terrible. We contacted coastal bend again when we were ready to do the other half of our foundation and they sent a contractor out to look at it. He said that we needed an engineer, so I called and spoke to the owner. He said that he would come out and look at it and we would go from there. He never came out and I continued to call and no one would return my phone calls. I called several times over the course of the summer. Finally, I gave up and contacted another foundation repair company to come out and finish our foundation. He did the rest of the work and did not recommend an engineer. We should have used this other company in the first place.
Desired Settlement: I am not sure what the best outcome will be. We spent alot of extra money on this job because we had to go with another contractor completely. Your company caused me alot of stress also and I will definitely do alot more research before we have any big jobs done.

Re: BBB Case #********
When Coastal Bend Foundation originally met with Ms. *** ********** we explained the repairs the home would need to have a stabilized foundation. Coastal Bend Foundation explained for the best results the home would need to have exterior piers installed on the entire perimeter of the home. At the time Ms. ********** only wanted Coastal Bend to do the garage area (11 piers), and would have the rest of the home (24 piers) done at a later time. Coastal Bend Foundation did the repairs to the home on September 2011. We have not received any warranty issues with the 11 piers that Coastal installed around the garage area.
Ms. ********** contacted us early this year to price having the rest of the home worked on. Coastal met with Ms. ********** and informed her she would need an engineer to look at her home. The **** ** ****** has implemented a permitting process for foundation work. The city now requires an engineered plan to be submitted with the permit. Only a licensed engineer can do this paper work. We gave Ms. ********** a few names of engineers that have done work for us in the past. We are sorry to hear how unhappy Ms. ********** is with the work Coastal did, but Coastal Bend Foundation will not take any short-cuts when it comes to our customers homes. We will always abided by all rules and regulations that the county and city has implemented for their area.
Coastal Bend performed all the work under the original contract and was paid in full. There have been no problems or complaints since 2011. If Ms. ********** would have got us the engineer report we requested we would have been glad to price her new work.
Better Business Bureau:
To whom it may concern
We are following the rules and standards set forth by the industry. We are under no obligation to Ms. ********** following the completion of the original contract dated 2011, with the exception of warranty work. No warranty work was requested, so we have no obligations.
We will not engage in a verbal argument through the BBB because Ms. ********** did not want to go through the engineering process.
Also, we are under no obligation to rebid a job once the owner turned down it initially. Once again, we have done nothing wrong so we have no offers for Ms. ********** but that we are sorry she feels the way she does.
