Foundation Restoration was recommended to me by my Realtor for a rear deck repair that was discovered to be shifting on the home inspection. I got other estimates that were considerably less expensive. David came out to inspect and give me an estimate. He was totally professional and honest with me. He told me that he could do a less expensive repair but if I wanted it done right the recommended repair would be the best. The next issue was timing. My closing was in 2 weeks. They worked really hard to fit me in. They came out and excavated around the slipping pillar and the team decided that the “Pin Pile” repair was not needed. Bottom line, FR was professional, honesty and did superior work. I would recommend them for any repair that they can perform. You will not be disappointed.
These folks are super nice and really know their stuff. Highly recommend. Would call them again. No need to shop around. Just give them a call.
Always a pleasure working with your team. Thanks.
I’ve been working with these guys for years. They are thorough and professional. I am happy to recommend them for anyone with water infiltration issues.
