Atlas Piers was very responsive. Everything was seamless, no complaints. It was good. We had an inspection afterward and it passed. That's all that matters. I don't know much about piers.

“I used them at my former home at a pretty complex job. Then I used them last summer for a commercial job at our hospice. Atlas did a great job. They did foundation repair, and they had to use piers to stabilize both our home and a storage facility. I'd give them an A.”

“It was good. It was fine. They did a good job. I'd give them an A.”

“They just did the service that was expected. They put in two piers for our home. I'd give them an A-.”

“They fixed the problem. It was a foundation repair. My real estate property manager handled everything. I haven't seen the work, but I assume it's satisfactory. I'd give them A.”

“I have used Atlas Piers for over ten years to assist me in repairing foundations. I have always been impressed with their foundation repair expertise and professionalism on the jobsite, which shows in their quality of work—starting with the office personnel over to the project managers and technicians down to the labor workforce. I have always recommended Atlas, and I will use them on future foundation repairs.”

“They were great. A very nice young man came out, looked at the job, and gave me a quote. They had someone on the job the next week, and the job was finished quickly. They left the yard and work area clean, and the house looks great again.”

“I had major foundation issues with my home, and Atlas Piers was so great to work with. It was a very stressful time for me, and they were professional and very kind to me.”

“Did an excellent job but left a mess initially. Once I informed them of it, however, they were out almost within an hour to clean it up and did not leave until it was cleaned to my satisfaction.”

“A very professional vendor. Excellent communication, prompt professional service.”

“Gave the quality of work an A- because it appeared done well but we won't know probably for years; it has held up well so far for the past 5+ years. They gave the appearance of being experts but I am not an engineer so I gave them an A- there too. I was very happy with their prompt attention and they were very neat. They were very respectful and informative when engaging in conversation. I would definitely use them again if needed.”

“It's been 11-12 years ago, but as I recall, everything went smoothly. So far, have not had to call them back, so I assume the repair was Successful!”

“The owner did a great job. The actual workers wanted to slightly deviate from the plans the owner had. I rejected that idea and stuck with the plan. Based on other independent comments that was an excellent decision. Overall Good quality work. Excellent overview and customer support. I trust the owner and would recommend him.”

“They did a great job!!!”

“Very positive. Wayne was very knowledgeable. Have recommended him many times.”

“They went out of their way to work with us for an assessment during a home buying contract. Their work was impeccable and they were key to us being comfortable to purchase our home.”

“They did pier work for me on what turned out to be a non load bearing wall. They did a great job, but did not jack the sinking post up high enough so there's still a 3-4' slope in floor. But overall their work was very good.”

“Timely, informative, and prompt response and service. Solved the complicated problem quickly.”

“The guy who came out was very professional. He knew what he was doing and did not try to oversell me. I have a sinkhole in my backyard, and he put in a pier to support one end of the foundation of my house. The contractor who was digging up my sinkhole worked with Atlas Piers, so I thought it would be wise to use them, too. I would grade them as an A+.”

“They were responsive, kept it simple, and had clear communication. They drilled piers to support the existing foundation. They came recommended. I would rate them as an A+.”

“I called Atlas Piers for a consultation on a foundation issue, and I was happy with their work. They were prompt, and I felt they were trustworthy and gave me the information that I needed. I'll give them an A.”

“Before I owned the home, their work was part of the negotiations with the seller. It was part of the negotiations that they had to fix the supports for us, and Atlas Piers did the work. They did a fine job. I had no complaints at all. It's been almost three years. They were absolutely fine. I would give them an A. They had an engineer come out and check it, and it was good.”

“They did exactly what they said they were going to do—they fixed a foundation settlement issue on a house I used to have. They were recommended to me by the purchaser of my home and by the inspector that did the home inspection. I would give them an A.”

“They were prompt and courteous, and they told us exactly what was going on. They brought our chimney back up into place—it was leaning, so they put a new foundation under it and piered up the foundation underneath it. I'd grade them as an A.”

“They got the job done in a timely manner. They did the piers under the foundation. I chose them because of their reputation. Atlas Piers gets an A.”

“Atlas Piers did a good job. They fixed the problem. I looked at three different bids, and they had more of an industrial strength solution because they did residential and commercial work. I felt very comfortable that they were going to get the job done. I didn't want to take the risk of using another firm that didn't use as robust a pier. I thought that I would hate to spend all the money and find out they didn't actually fix it. They had to dig a lot deeper than I thought they were going to, but I guess that's not their fault.”

“Atlas Piers was absolutely wonderful. I would give them the highest rating—A+. I've used them three or four times, and I would use them again and again. They shot piers in the front and jacked them up, and they'll be there forever. I went with them because I thought they were very personable and very honest. I trusted them, and I'm very happy I did.”

“I'm pleased with Atlas Piers. They put piers in the house to make sure the fireplace didn't go anywhere. I was told they were top-notch, and so far, they have been. I'd say they're an A.”

“Atlas put some piers in and lifted my house in one corner. The crew was super nice, and they worked well together.”

“Last year, they put in two piers for the house I used to own. They were good. They were professional, and they did what they said they were going to do. They should get an A.”

“A corner of our house was sinking, and they stabilized it. We got a quote from them, and they were highly recommended. The lady in the office, the gentleman who quoted, and the people who came out and worked—everyone was extremely friendly and nice to work with. I would rate them as an A.”

“They did piers in the exterior of my wall, and they pressure grouted the flap. Their crews were punctual and arrived early, and they were mindful of all the other stuff going on around the house. The president made himself available both before and after the job to check in. Atlas Piers is an A-level company.”

“They installed piers for me, and I had a positive experience. I wasn't super connected with the work, but as far as I know, it went well. I'd grade them as an A.”

“Atlas Piers did a fabulous job. They're the only company that I would use, and I'd recommend them. I'd give them top ratings—they're an A.”

“Atlas Piers jacked up part of the porch and did some front foundation elevation. They were very personable and very businesslike. They were also quick and very busy, and they did the job well. They get an A.”

“They did foundation repair on a stoop going to the front stairs of a house. They came when they said they would and did a massive amount of work. They left it so clean that you couldn't even tell they'd done the work, and the invoice was for exactly the amount they quoted. I haven't had an issue. I would definitely give them an A grade.”

“Atlas Piers put in two helical piers, and they did a great job. They were very responsive and communicative. They should get an A.”

“They installed helical tiebacks to reinforce the retaining wall. I had no complaints about their work. I would give them an A rating.”

“The front part of my foundation was starting to crumble and fall outward, so they had an independent inspector check it out. He suggested putting in five piers, and they put them in. It looks like everything they did was great. They were really good to work with. I'd grade them as an A.”

“A section of the house had settled on one side because of some cracks in the foundation. Upon inspection, they told me I had to repair that before I could refinance. Quite honestly, Atlas Piers was probably the most awesome and highly recommended company that I looked into. Even though I didn't want to do it in the first place, I'd have to give them an A.”

“They installed about six helical piers for a settling foundation. It was a no-frills kind of thing, and they did a good job. A lot of the other companies that gave quotes do a million different things—they can fix shingles, paint your house, or do drill piers—but the good thing about Atlas Piers is that this is the only thing they do. They get an A because they were excellent.”

“We had three steps in the front entry that were sinking on one end, so they drilled three or four holes through them, ran a pipe down through the ground, and then filled it in with a concrete mixture. It was great, and they cleaned it up really well. We haven't had any issues since then, so I think it all went well. I'd give them an A.”

“One corner of the house was settling, so they came out, put the piers in, and got it leveled. They did a great job, and they were there promptly—all good things. I would give them an A rating.”

“There was a corner of the house that had dropped a little bit, so they came in, installed a pier, and repositioned it correctly. They were on time, and they were mostly on budget. I would use them again, and I'd give them an A rating.”

“They did two piers and raised the foundation of my house. I liked their professionalism. They were very easy to work with, and they were very courteous—they didn't mind that I stood out there and watched what they were doing. I'd grade them as an A.”

“Atlas Piers raised our front porch a couple of inches, and they did a really good job. They were on time and on budget. I would give them an A.”

“I had a crack in a basement wall, and they patched it up. It was good. I didn't have any problems with them at all, so they earned an A.”

“They put in pillars for the deck, and they strengthened the support for that by tying the rods to the foundation of the house. You can see pretty clearly what they did with the pillars and everything, and it has made a difference. It was very good work. They turned up when they said they were going to turn up, they did the job as advertised, and they told me exactly what they were going to do and how they were going to do it. They did everything on time and efficiently, so I had nothing to complain about. Their work gets an A.”

“They installed six piers thirty-five feet below one corner of my house. They were straight talkers—they did exactly what they said they would on time and within budget. They cleaned up after themselves, too, and when I had follow-up questions, they always responded. They've had good customer service since then. I'd have to give them an A because they did what I expected.”

“They did great work. In fact, they went above and beyond. When we sold the house, they said that if the new owners had any issues, they would fix them and honor the warranty. We haven't had a single issue with them. They deserve their A grade.”

“Our house was falling in, so Atlas Piers added two or three piers in the back. The owner came out and saw us, and he was really great. I would give them an A.”

“They did work on my home after I moved out of it, but as far as what I had to deal with, I would say they were an A-level business.”

“Atlas Piers of Atlanta installed some piers for me, and I would give them an A rating.”

“Atlas Piers is marvelous. Our house was damaged in an earthquake. They went down underneath the floor and popped it back up. They were very professional. They did what they said they going to do, and they did it beautifully. It was impressive. I'd give them an A.”

“I have a positive experience with Atlas Piers every time I use them. They installed helical piers to give the foundation lift and support. They leave the place just like they found it. Everything they take up, they put right back. I'd give them an A. They're excellent, and they do great work.”

“Atlas Piers was amazing. They did a really great job. They put some piers in and helped with the settling foundation. I would definitely give them an A.”

“I have a positive impression of Atlas. They did a great job, and they did it pretty quick, in the allotted time. My house was sinking in the front, so they jacked up the foundation to correct all the defects, got it back in line, and got the doors lined back up. They did the job as requested, and they didn't make a very big mess at all. I would rate them A+. I have no reservations about them.”

“What Atlas did for me worked really well. They came in, knocked the job out, and were gone. Our house didn't have a good enough foundation under the garage, so the garage had sunk about two inches. They came in and jacked it back up to level, and it worked perfectly. I haven't had to call them back since the work was complete. I'd definitely use them again; I've talked to them about other jobs we might get done. I'd have to give them an A+.”

“Everything was fantastic. They put piers in for me, and they did a great job; I have no complaints. There's not one bad thing I have to say about the experience. The work was great. The people were good, they were on time, and they did their job. I'll give them an A+.”

“Atlas did a standard foundation repair job for me. The work needed to be done while I was moving from my old home to my new one, and they made every effort to have it done in time. I have not had to call them back with any problems. They get an A rating from me.”

“The work Atlas did was absolutely a best-case scenario. They were quick and to the point, they were very professional, they did their job, and they cleaned up after themselves and went home. They came in and got everything done quickly, and I haven't had to call them back at all since that work was completed. I'd say they did grade-A work.”

“Everything went OK. They were prompt, and they cleaned up after themselves. They also did a good job on the structural work, from what we can tell. They were very professional. They were recommended by my inspectors. They deserve an A grade.”

“Atlas installed four piers to support a basement wall of mine that was collapsing inward. They were responsive, and they did what they said they were going to do. I feel like I got what I paid for, and I haven't had to call them back. They get an A.”

“I had a positive experience with Atlas, even though I was not there when they did the work. There was a crack in the basement wall, and they fixed it. Everything was done perfectly. I'd give them an A.”

“Atlas Piers put in five piers for my driveway. They were friendly and seemed to be knowledgeable. They did a fine job for me. They deserve an A rating—they were excellent.”

“They came in and did the job thoroughly, and the cleanup was complete. Any questions I had were answered early on. It was just overall a very good experience. I would give them an A overall.”

“We were moving into a new house, and we had an inspection issue that they fixed. They did some pier repair in our garage. They went about their business and got the work done very quickly—everything was fine. I'd give them an A.”

“The representative's responsiveness and my interactions with him made my dealings with Atlas Piers positive. The company did quality work as well; I haven't had to call them back with any problems since then. They get an A from me.”

“They did the work that they said they were going to do, and they did it on time and on schedule. They put in several piers and then a few other anchoring systems for me. They were patient during the time when I needed to make a decision—they were up front, and they explained everything clearly. They're easy to talk to, easy to work with, and easy to contact. I'd give Atlas Piers an A.”

“Atlas fit eight helical piers for a future foundation. They got there when they said they were going to be there, and they got the work done exactly as we agreed that it would be done. They were neat. It was good to be around them—I appreciate that the workers did their job well. I have not had to call them to come back. They get an A.”

“They laid piers under a retaining wall for me. I had a great experience with them. They had great follow-up. They were on time, on schedule, and on budget. I haven't had any problems I've had to call back about. I'd give them an A.”

“I think that Atlas did a good job. I had a chimney with a sunken foundation, leaving a crack of about an inch and a half to two inches in the brick. They put in two piers to support the chimney, then they jacked up the foundation under the chimney and backfilled everything to make it look normal. They were very efficient—they came out the day that they said they would. I would give them an A, and I would use them again.”

“Atlas was recommended to me, so I went with them. They put three piers in my foundation. They came and did the job, I paid them, and it was over. I wasn't there when they did the work, but the house seems to be holding up. There haven't been any issues I've had to get them to come fix. They get an A from me.”
