They secured an eight-foot alley wall. They dug a trench, drilled holes in the alley wall for retention rods and weeping holes, installed plates on either side, screwed them together, and filled the trench back in. The work was performed in two days. The backyard had minimal disruption. The work area was kept clean and free of debris. They left the jobsite in excellent condition. They provided a torque wrench to maintain tension on the bolts. They were courteous and professional on the phone and in person, and the best part is that they fixed the problem.
JES installed piers to close up cracks in a brick wall. The experience was positive. The representative was professional and knowledgeable. They said that if any adjustments to the piers are needed in the future, they would do it for free, which gives us peace of mind.
JES installed underfloor jacks to stabilize and lift the house, and they encapsulated the crawl space. The workers were polite and professional, and the work was completed on schedule. The quality of work was good.
JES Foundation Repair installed resistance piers to stabilize the chimney whose foundation started to lean away from the house causing the chimney to lean away from the house. JES provided a price quote and engineering drawings, and they answered all of my questions during a visit to my residence. The work crew was knowledgeable and answered all of my remaining questions while performing the work. The crew cleaned up after themselves and replaced the dirt that was dug up around the chimney foundation.
They installed six SmartJacks under my house to support my sagging center beam. It was positive because they did exactly what they said they were going to do when they said they were going to do it. I didn't have to contact them again after they left (very unusual for me).
They did Kevlar fiber bands implanted in the basement cement block wall. They were easy to deal with. It was fairly clean work.
JES performed a foundation crack repair and partial waterproofing system on my home. The crack was stabilized by carbon straps. My overall experience was positive. The consultant and repair crew were professional and seemed knowledgeable about the issue and performing the repair.
They did a floor joist repair. It was positive, and they complied with the job in a timely manner.
They placed steel rods through the wall on one end of my house so that we could pull the wall outward, as it was pushing in somewhat. They came on time, performed all work in a workmanlike manner, kept us informed along the way, and did a great cleanup and reseeding on the lawn.
We were losing a bay window in our 1936 historic home. As the foundation beneath it sagged, it was pulling away from the house, with a larger gap at the top and a smaller one at the bottom. JES jacked it up and poured new footings, fixing the problem. They were able to do this without significantly hurting a half dozen very large azaleas adjacent to the bay window and without tearing up the lawn.
