Pete Sommer saved my house! I can’t begin to describe what an honest hardworking person Pete is. My whole rear and left side foundation had collapsed due to the flood waters and my house was tilted over. Pete came in 5 days after the storm and jacked my house up with steel beams. He and his crew then came back in February and raised my house 4-1/2 feet. Jay Kennedy and his masons where right there behind Pete and ripped out the old foundation and built a new one. Pete moved the house forward and to the side and now the house sits on top of a new foundation. The whole process was very smooth and went just as Pete described it would. Big thanks to Pete and Jay and their hard working crews!
I've never left a review before but I'm so grateful for his miraculous work, I logged on just to publicly thank you Pete. When everything seemed to hit rock bottom, you came in and lifted us up (No pun intended!)
To anyone searching for a reliable, responsible and dependable house lifter, I highly recommend you speak to Pete. His knowledge of flood plain info, insurance, FEMA, etc.. saved us!
And in the end, being 1/2 the price of the other two estimates was just unbelievable. Jay was right behind him with the masonry (AND we were able to stay in the house while it was completed.)
My thoughts are with everyone dealing with this disaster and I hope there are more people like Pete, Jay and team out there helping everyone to stay on our beautiful Jersey Shore.
Thank you Pete & Jay!
Pete lifted my house in Dec 2012 and did a great job. Pete worked with Jay Kennedy, the mason who built my foundation. They came as a team and worked well together. This made it easier for me. Jay was also great to work with. Would definitely recommend Pete if you want your house lifted.
I met Pete Sommer, the "House Lifter", through the recommendations of my neighbors after Hurricane Sandy ravaged our area. A few hours after my call Pete was at my home with materials to shore up my house and prevent further damage from a destroyed foundation. He promised and returned to properly "lift" my home and prepared for the necessary repairs I would need. His family-owned business provided courteous work persons who were supervised by Pete himself to level the building and clean up the mess of debris and household items all over my property and adjoining properties. Pete Sommer has kept me up to date with the latest FEMA and municipal guidelines in order for me to get back into my home. Thank God for "the house lifter".
Pete Sommer, you are a God send! After our house was on the market for almost 2 years, we finally had a buyer... But just 6 weeks before the closing our buyer secured a home inspection and then made demands that he wanted major structural items in our basement repaired that he argued affected the structural integrity of our home, I was 7 months pregnant and heartbroken with this news. On the recommendation of a great friend, I decided to call Pete Sommer House Lifter. We needed a miracle. After calling Mr. Sommer, our miracle turned into a reality!!! We were working with tight time constraints, but Mr. Sommer & his crew pulled through & turned a nightmare into a dream come true! The quality craftsmanship of his work was evident to both us & to our happy buyer!!!! Thank you SO much, we couldn't have done it without you! God Bless You!
(Side Note: the uneducated individual ccrispy6 who noted below seriously needs to get his head examined, he cannot possibly be talking about the same business that Mr. Sommer runs. A crook? A criminal? No, just the opposite actually! An honest, hardworking, goal oriented, dedicated worker! Shame on you ccrispy6, maybe your screen name is because your brain is crispy and can't think straight! ...but I degress)
If you are looking for a reliable and dependable House Lifter, Pete Sommer is the guy for you. He dug a basement under our home and supported it, did all of the masonry work, complete plumbing and built the stairs. We had extreme termite damage that other companies said they were not able to fix and this company was able to do it ALL.
The workmanship was excellent and every aspect of the job was done to code.
We now have twice the living space and the value of our home has doubled!!
I would HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone and the pricing beat all of the local competitors.
Best House Lifter – I had the best experience using this company!
Pete Sommer was extremely reliable and his work ethic was extraordinary. He was at my house everyday as promised, even Sundays until the job was complete.
I was able to live in the house with my family while the entire job was being performed. He not only lifted the house but repaired all foundation work that other companies said were unfixable.
I am so grateful for the high quality work and the time efficiency of which it was done. This guy is amazing!!
Pete Sommer is an honest and hard worker!!! – I am Pete Sommer's secretary Elizabeth and he is not a crook, this man below me tells lies and lost in court after we had to settle a dispute due to the fact that he signed a contract and when Pete showed up to do the work he told Pete to get off his property. He lost in court and payed Pete over $1,000 in fines. DO NOT LISTEN TO A WORD THE MAN BELOW ME SAYS! If you would like a list of refrences and reviews from people who have ACTUALLY had work done by Pete, please email me at psommer13@yahoo and I will be happy to share names and numbers of clients Pete has worked for that are HONEST about the job Pete Sommer has completed for them.
