HOMEOWNER REVIEWS SELECTED FROM SURVEYS COLLECTED:

“Everything they say they're going to do, they always do. This was our second time using Advanced Foundation Repair. They always leave your property impeccable. I'm very happy with them. I'd give the overall experience an A+. I already have recommended them.”

“First of all, these guys work fast. They got the job done, and they made the place look good after they had finished. Quality of work and expertise were outstanding. I'd give them an A+ rating.”

“I've only had one foundation done, and it was excellent. The men were very courteous and kept the place clean and did a good job. I've had two foundation things done, and both of them were good. I'll give Advanced Foundation Repair an A+.”

“Nothing in particular I liked or disliked about them. I don't know enough about foundation to know any better than what they did. They were friendly and respectful. I liked the workers. It's been several months. I don't recall that there was a difficulty with anything or that I was disappointed with anything. I would have to say there's no reason not to give them an A+. They did excellent work. I had no complaints. I'm not the expert to be able to tell positively that they did.”

“They were great. They cleaned up after themselves. They left the property well cleaned. There were no messes. It was great. It was very good work. They're A+.”

“I just thought it was great. I was fortunate that I was here when they worked, and they just took care of business and stayed to themselves, and it was great. I'd give the overall experience an A. I'd recommend them.”

“I thought that the person who came out and gave me the estimate, I was very comfortable with. He gave me an honest option. I'd give the overall experience an A. They gave me a time they'd be there and they were there on the dot. I had to call three times to get the final report, but they did say it'd take a month. I would recommend them highly.”

“They were great—they came in, did their job, did it well, and left. I was real happy with them. I would grade them as an A. I would recommend them.”

“We actually don't live there. We were just having the work done. We weren't there on-site when they were doing it. As far as I know, we haven't had any issues. They did excellent work, and I don't have any complaints about it.”

“Advanced Foundation Repair was very good. They did what they told me they were going to do. They did a good job. They were in and out. They didn't make a mess. They were very clean. I was very satisfied, and the work is quality work. I'd say A+.”

“It was very much positive. Good timing and professional. Well-informed. Did a good job. They call you back. They answer all your questions. They do a good job. I'd grade them as an A+. I already have recommended them.”

“Nothing in particular I liked or disliked about them. Nothing stood out about their work. I'd rate them as an A+. I'm not an expert in that, but it looks like everything looks good.”

“They were good. Nothing in particular I liked or disliked about them. They did a good job. They get an A+. I would definitely recommend them.”

“Everything was pretty good. The only thing I think is negative is communication. I'd give them an A.”

“Nothing stood out about their work or service. I would rate them as an A.”

“The work was fine. I have a lifetime warranty on the work. I guess now they sold and split the company in Waco, which was who I hired to do the job. I was just kind of curious because now this company out of Dallas is the one that comes and services my house. With this new company, they're fine. I would say probably an A. They appeared to do pretty good. The customer service is what I had an issue with, and it wasn't necessarily with the Advanced Foundation Repair. It was with the other company that I had originally paid to do the job.”

“Their knowledge is really good. I'd give them an A, overall. They were an hour late.”

“They did a good job. They got there. They did it. They didn't make a big mess. They cleaned up. I'd rate them as an A.”

“They were just professional, hardworking. I'd give the overall experience an A.”

“They were quick and tidy and polite and got finished in the time that they quoted. I would give them an A grade.”

“What I liked was that when they came, they were very efficient in how they got their work done. I would suggest maybe a little bit better communication of what all the steps in the process are going to be, and kind of where we are in those steps. There were times where I wasn't sure if the ball was in their court or my court. When they were here doing the work, they were very, very good. I'd give them an A. I would definitely recommend them.”

“They didn't keep me as informed as I needed to be during the process, but it appears they did a good job. I would grade them an A-.”

“I would give them an A grade. They didn't give me any information, they are going through the builder. I know where they did the concrete, it didn't match, so they were supposed to come today because it doesn't match my driveway. I would grade them an A-.”

“They were fabulous. They put piers under our house to raise the foundation. They were on time, did the work very well, and cleaned up after themselves. I'd give them the best—A+.”

“They're very good. They raised the east side of my house. I liked the salesman; I was very impressed with him. I had six companies come out, and I chose Advanced Foundation. I'd rate them as an A+. I've already recommended them to five or six friends.”

“They did a great job the first time, a great job the second time, and if I ever have any foundation work in the future, I'll be using them. The people I worked with were fantastic. I couldn't ask for a better bunch of people to work with. I'd give them an A+.”

“We're very happy with Advanced. They actually exceeded our expectations. They installed some piers to support the house. They were professional and very efficient. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did a very good job. The work they did was very good. They came on the day and the time that they said they would. They were clean. The only bad thing is it's hard sometimes to get them on the phone. Other than that, the work was perfect. The quality of the work was the highest grade. I'd give them an A.”

“They described, in detail, what they were going to do. They showed up when they promised and did what they promised. I would say they're an A. I'm not an engineer, but it isn't falling down yet. Everything was planned so well, and I haven't had any post issues to speak about. They took care of the yard, returned all the different pieces that were used in the process, and returned things as best as possible to their previous states. They came highly recommended by other engineers.”

“They did a great job. They fixed part of my planter in front of the house. The people that had put in our sump pump had broken the brick and knocked out some of my planters. It's an old house. It was built in 1958. He busted up some of the grey brick, but I had some left in the back from another part that had fallen. Advanced Foundation Repair were able to piece it together, and it was just wonderful. They were very nice. I didn't see them very much, but when I talked to them, they were really nice guys. They knew what they were doing. I'd give them an A+.”

“They leveled the back bedroom. I'd used them before, and they did an excellent job. They did another excellent job this time as well. They were supposed to come out in July, but they came out in March instead, so I'm very happy. I'd rate them A+ overall.”

“Advanced Foundation Repair did a great job. It was excellent work, with no complaints—an A grade. I'm happy with their work.”

“The communication, and low level of disruption, compared to what it could have been, made it a positive experience for me. The people that we worked with were good. I'd have to give the overall experience an A+. It was that good.”

“They did five or six piers for us through the builder. They got it done. It was easy. I would rate the job an A+.”

“They did some foundation repair and put some steel pipes under the house to level it out and hold it where it was. They were very professional, very efficient, and very fast. When they were done, they cleaned up everything almost exactly like it was before, so I didn't have to do anything. I would rate them A+. I would definitely recommend them.”

“I think they did a very thorough assessment before they started the work, and they did a good job on the work once they did it. I'd give them an A+.”

“They got the job done. A+. No complaints.”

“It was a very positive experience. The service, the employees, the job they did, the whole package, it was great. I'd give them at least an A, if not an A+.”

“They were just very professional and very nice to work with. We worked with them the year before. We had a foundation issue. They were honest with us before and told us to wait. I appreciate them doing that, because they could have just taken the money, but they didn't. I just had a very positive experience with them. I would give them an A+.”

“It was fine. I'd say they're an A.”

“I wish they would have taken more dirt away, but overall, it was positive. They did foundation work around my house. They've done it a couple of different times. They're prompt, and they get the job done. I'd rate the overall experience an A.”

“Advanced Foundation Repair lifted the entire house for me. Brad, my Advanced Foundation rep, was pretty good at communication. There were some hiccups, due to the weather and things, but he was always good about communicating with me. I've been dealing with him for four or five years now. He's always been really good. I'd give them an A. They were supposed to start the work back before Thanksgiving, but it was January before they started. As far as their cleanliness goes, there was quite a bit of a mess left around the house, especially between the water bottles and the dirt on the side of the house.”

“They raised the foundation on part of my house and put piers under it. They did a good job. I'd rate them A.”

“It was a really good experience. It was a partial lift for a foundation. Basically, it was a foundation repair for one room of our house. They installed seven piers. They showed up quickly, on time, and got the work done very quickly. It was really no hassle at all. I'd rate the job an A overall.”

“I don't have any complaints.”

“They just did the front foundation work. We had some leveling we needed to have done up there. Advanced Foundation Repair made it a positive experience.”

“We haven't had any issues after the work. They did a lift on the house for us. I'd rate them A. The only problem was that they did not have an outhouse here for the men to use for a bathroom, and I was always wondering where they went to the bathroom. I'm wondering if they went under my house while they were tunneling.”

“Advanced Foundation Repair raised the house and leveled it out. Any issues that came up, they took care of right away. I'd give them an A overall.”

“I didn't have any complaints about the repair work they did for me. They're a very good company. They did a good job.”

“Advanced Foundation did foundation work for me. They seemed to do a good job, and the people I dealt with seemed to be fine. They completed the work. It took a long time for them to do the work, to schedule it and get it done, but it did get done, and it seems all right. I'd give them an A.”

“They get an A. They were good.”

“It was fine. They deserve an A.”

“We liked the man who came to the house and gave us the quote. He told us exactly what would be done. He was very thorough in his explanation, and then he came by during the job to see if we had any more questions and if things were going well. I thought that was good. He took time with us. He didn't try to get in and out of here quickly, so I thought that was good. They did exactly what he said they were going to do, and I didn't have any complaints after they were done. I'd give them an A. I've already recommended them.”

“There were no problems and everything went smoothly. They showed up when they were supposed to. We liked the work they did. They just did what they said they would. I'd give them an A. They did a good job.”

“I was very happy with their services. The workers were very hardworking. They worked, even on a cold day, and they got the job done. I'd give them an A.”

“They were great. They did a great job. They finished it, and it seems stable. They did a good job. I'd give them an A.”

“They came out, did a good job, and everything was put in right. The workmen were very cordial. We'll see how the foundation shores up, as far as once everything's dried out. I'd give them an A.”

“Everything was good. I'd give them an A.”

“They did what they said they would do, and I thought it was pretty good quality workmanship. I'd give them an A.”

“They did an adjustment on our house. The house was over-jacked, so it had to be lowered a little bit. The scheduling went fine. They rescued the house. I'd give them an A. They weren't the original doers of the job, they were just called in to fix it. They were there on time, and they showed up when they were supposed to show up.”

“They did what they said they were going to do, did it on time, and quicker than they said they were going to do it. I'd give them an A.”

“It was great. It was a great experience. I'd give them an A.”

“I'd give them an A.”

“They were fine. The owner is nice. He came out here and did a good job. He was quick. I'd give them an A.”

“They get an A.”

“They did a good job.”

“Advanced Foundation Repair were on time, and they did good. It's an A from us.”

“They did the job that I needed them to do. It's an A.”

“The work was fine. I don't have any complaints.”

“It was fine. I'd say they're an A.”

“They just did what they said they were going to do. I'd give the job an A, and it's pretty likely I'd recommend them.”

“They were nice. They did a very good job. I'd give them an A.”

“I'd give them an A.”

“The people that were here were very nice. I would give them an A. I would definitely recommend them.”

“They were fantastic, professional, and went above and beyond. They did our foundation repair—they redid our whole foundation.”

“It was all on time; I know that kind of work takes time. They were very professional, and there was minimal loss of any kind of landscaping material. It was a very clean work site when they were done—you really couldn't tell that they had been there. They did some foundation repair. They installed some piers on one side of our house. There was real good communication of when and where they were coming; it wasn't really a loss of time with my job. They did exactly what they said they were going to do. The company I work for manages apartment buildings, and they had done some work for us on different apartment communities, so that's how I knew about them. They were excellent with no complaints. It was an A+ for sure.”

“They were in and out quickly, and I guess they did their job. I'm not sure about stuff like that. I just know that they put in some more piers. They were polite. My husband found them.”

“I liked that they left the place all nice and clean, didn't make a big mess, and got it done in the time frame that they had specified. And everybody was very nice. They put in the things to jack up the house.”

“They did very good. That's the second time they have been out to the house, and they do a very nice job. They are very considerate, they make sure that they follow through and explain if I want things answered, and they clean up behind themselves. I have had a very good experience with them. This time, they did kind of the northwest corner of the house. They put in nine pillars, and they had to put one in the house. I am very satisfied. The time before, they did kind of the southwest. I would rate them as an A.”

“The work got done, and that's about all I can say. I had very little contact with them. They just repaired our foundation. They were very prompt. It was all set up by our warranty company. We would give them an A.”

“They are very friendly. They come in, do their work, and explain everything that they are going to be doing. They did the measuring of the floor and foundation. We found them through our home builder.”

“Overall, it was a good experience. They did a foundation repair. Communication was good. Our builder recommended them.”

“They did a very good job—can't complain. There was foundation work at the back of the house, and some exterior piers had to be put in. What little I talked to them in customer service, they were fine. I had used them twice before. It was excellent work with no complaints.”

“Advanced Foundation Repair was amazing. We got a call from a lady in their office almost every afternoon letting us know what would be happening the next morning. They did a great job. Really and truly, I have even talked about them a couple times to family and friends and neighbors that might have the same issue in our neighborhood. I have got nothing but good things to say about them.”

“They did an excellent job and got it done in one or two days. It looks great. We had a garage foundation problem, and they put the piers in there. They were right here at our door at Christmastime, and they didn't bother us at all, so that was good.”

“Every time we have used Advanced, it has been great. We have probably used them five times altogether. I think the first time I used them was maybe 20 years ago. I would give them an A+.”

“Advanced Foundation Repair did my whole foundation. They were really good. Everything was good—it was perfect. I would rate them an A+.”

“Advanced Foundation Repair did what I asked them to do, and it seems to have helped. We had used them before a number of years ago, so that was my reason for calling them back. I have a lifetime warranty on the work. The last time they came out, it was to reinforce our foundation. Then, a water main burst in front of my house a couple years ago, and I had to have my garage dug in. They cleaned up afterward. I chose Advanced because my husband and I had used them before many years ago, and they were highly recommended then. I would give them an A. They were very accommodating.”

“The technicians from Advanced Foundation Repair were really nice, and their customer service was very good. It didn't take very long to complete the job. My son used them and was really pleased with them, so I thought that they could do a job for me. If I needed to, I would use them again. I think they are A+.”

“Advanced Foundation Repair put in six piers. The guys were informative, and they really cleaned up after themselves, too. They had a mess up there, but you'd never know it afterward. I chose Advanced because I had a neighbor that used them, so they were recommended to me. I wouldn't use anyone that wasn't recommended to me. I'd give them an A+.”

“I had a good experience with Advanced Foundation Repair because they did the work and got through with it. They went up under the house and put piers in, and they didn't leave anything lying around when they cleaned up. I'm sure I got a warranty. I would use them again—they're A+.”

“Advanced Foundation Repair leveled my house, and they did a very good job. I used them two times—one side of the house one year and the other side the next year. They were fine. They did everything they said they were going to do, and the work has held up well. I didn't have to clean up behind them. They get an A+.”

“They replaced water-damaged wood under my house, and there were never any problems. They did everything like they said they would, so everything worked out well. They did it according to the time frame that they said they would—I think it took about 10 days to do the work. I talked to my insurance company, and Advanced Foundation Repair is the company they recommended. I'd give them an A+.”

“Advanced Foundation Repair repaired the foundation for me. They were recommended by the builder. I liked that they did the job when they told me they'd do it—they were on time, so that was good. The time frame was exactly as they told me. They were informative and did the job just fine. The cleanup was good, and everything's held up fine so far. It was A+ work. I didn't have any complaints.”

“They added some piers. They got the job done within the time line we needed, and the workers cleaned up. It was very easy to access the guy that I dealt with, and I felt like they were very professional and very efficient. If I had to do it all over again, I would still use them. I actually recommended them to a friend of mine. I'd say that Advanced Foundation Repair is an A+.”

“We had foundation repair done by Advanced Foundation Repair. They put in piers for me. It was done in a reasonable amount of time, and everything was done satisfactorily. Since the work was finished, everything has held up fine. Our homeowners' association chose them for us because it was under warranty, but I would use their service again if I needed to. I would give them an A rating.”

“Advanced Foundation Repair put piers inside my house to lift it. They came in and got the job done, and they cleaned up. They were here a week to get it all done, and they were very careful and put everything back like it was. Their cleanup was great. I had a bad experience with a different company—they basically lied and didn't do the work they said they did—but I trusted Advanced. I haven't had an issue since they did the work. I'd give them an A.”

“I've used Advanced Foundation Repair twice now. I had the back done about two or three years ago, and I had the front done recently—I'm quite happy with the results of both times. They put in five piers in the back of the house, and I believe they put in six piers up at the front. I would say they're an A.”

“They did really good work. They got right down to work and got it done as fast as they could, and they did it right. They were working on my foundation on an addition. It's been about two or three weeks, and since then, everything has been fine. The crew that came out there to work was fine. From the customer service side, everything was good. I would use them again, and I'd recommend them. I would give Advanced Foundation Repair an A. It was a good experience.”

“Advanced Foundation Repair did a good job. They installed a lot of piers under our house. It was a quality job, and I would recommend them to others. I would give them an A.”
