They replaced our sewer line, laid a portion of our driveway, and replaced our concrete patio. I could go on and on about things that I like—the workmen were exceptionally efficient, there was no wasted time, they worked consistently, and they worked well together. There was a rather large crew. Their supervisor was excellent—I believe his name was Benny. They were prompt, and they worked the entire time. They did take a break for lunch, but they worked the entire time without actual breaks. They deserve an A.
The foundation was sinking but hadn't cracked and needed to be leveled and raised. They had done some work for us previously at another location. I like that they were very honest—they didn't push unnecessary repairs or added expense on me at the time. I had three different companies in to give me estimates. All three were telling me I needed a lot more work done than I really did. Du-West came in and said, 'This is only off by half an inch. You need to keep a watch on it if you see things starting to change, cracking, etc. Then you probably need to give us a call if you see any changes, and we can come do that part at another time.' Sometimes slab foundation people just aren't perfect. At that point in time they saved me money by not doing unneeded repairs. I'd give them an A.
They dug out under my master bedroom and bathroom and leveled that part of the house. They seemed to really know what they were doing. They had a plumber come in at the right time and everything. They seemed to be extremely well organized. Someone told me about Du-West, and when I had them come out, it seemed all their ducks were in a row. They had insurance and everything they needed. I thought they were very good, and they did a good job for me. I'd rate them A.
They were on time, and they did the job according to what the contract specified, so it was a good job. It was foundation repair, and then also she had her driveway done. That was a little different, but it's another division of Du-West. They did an excellent job on her driveway too. I'd probably rate them A-.
The owner himself came out and surveyed the house. The crew was there when they said they'd be there, and they cleaned up when they left. They did foundation repair and a root barrier for me. I'd give them an A+.
I'd had foundation work done before, under a lifetime warranty, but about three months later the guy that did the work he died, and it felt like my house had settled a little bit. I had to have it readjusted. We used him the last time, but this time we didn't know anyone, so we used Du-West. They did the work and left. They did a good job, so they deserve an A.
They did foundation repair for me. We already had a previous foundation warranty from them, so that's why we chose them. We'd give them an A.
They did the foundation work on the home. They lifted the foundation. I didn't dislike anything; everything was good. They get an A.
They did work for me—foundation repair. I'd give them an A.
The house is level now. They came and did work. I probably chose them because they'd done work at some of the other neighbors' houses around me. I didn't hear anybody say anything negative about them. They're an A.
