“I was told that a licensed inspector would come out and do the measurements to make sure that everything was leveled at the house, and in fact an inspector did come through after they did the job and everything, but he basically just came to sign off on what measurements their workers did. I asked the inspector if there would be any possible way he could take measurements and get me a copy of it, just to be on the safe side that my house is level. The inspector said he was not supposed to do any measurements because Granite only paid them to sign off on whatever they did. I was like, 'But you're the licensed engineer. Aren't you supposed to do measurements yourself, and then give me a copy to make sure that the house is leveled the way it should be?' He said, 'I'll take measurements only on where they did the work, and no, I cannot give you a copy of it.' I said, 'Why not?' 'Because Granite is paying me' but I'm like, ‘I'm the customer.’ I had an issue with that. I felt like if he was trying to hide something, but he probably really wasn't. It made me uncomfortable. He told me if I wanted a copy that I needed to ask Granite for a copy, which I did but I didn't ever receive. They just recently came back out because I still hear the cracking noise in my house. Also, the guy that came out to do measurements came out again. He was giving me reasons for everything that wasn't above the level that should have been. I just left it at that. I'm probably going to hire another company to come and do a reading on my foundation just to see if everything is leveled, but other than that, they treat me really very well. I just had an issue with that, basically. They did the work and when they said that they would. They get a B.”

“The work was fine. What they left me with was negative. They did not take away the trash. They messed up my driveway. They just left me with things that was not part of it. The guy who came and sold it to me, that was fine. He was a nice guy, but they only told you the nice things. ‘We'll replace the shrubs and we'll do this and we'll do that.’ Well, they did not do this or do that. I've written and nobody bothered to call me. Their work was fine, and they had good workers. There was nothing wrong with that or what they did. They did not clean up. It's like having five or six little kids here. I was very disappointed with their clean-up work. I wouldn't recommend them without telling somebody, ‘Make sure you're standing there every minute because you're going to have to act like they're five years old and make them clean up.’ I'd give them a B-. I'm really happy with their work. The quality of work was fine. They worked under not really good conditions because it was early spring. They were here. They were punctual. I wouldn't recommend them to a friend that I want to keep without saying you have to make sure you know what they're supposed to do outside when they finish.”

“We liked the fact that he came out, did a bid, and then he came back out again eight weeks later and resolidified what he had said prior and scheduled the job. He met all the dates that he gave us. I wasn't here when they did the work. At the time, everything looks fine. I think it's one of those things that you notice three or six months out, but I would grade them as an A. I'd recommend them to a friend.”

“It was February of last year. The first guy we met was very knowledgeable, very thorough, and I thought they delivered all the way through from his work on the front end to how the actual construction crew did the work and follow-up and everything else. I give them very high marks. The foundation repair was the only work they did for me. They get an A+. I've already recommended them on to several different people, I was so impressed with their work.”

Review by

“They came out quickly to evaluate our foundation and then they got the crew out to repair it quickly too. Overall, I'd give them a B+. I never know what prices could be when I get services. Sometimes they are astoundingly low and other times I feel like they're a whole lot of money. I think that's a normal part of the system.”

Review by

“They did some piers in the front, which was the foundation part, but the bulk of the job was some French drains for drainage problems I've had in the back. I'd give them an A+. I didn't have any complaints. They let me know tons of things that were going on. Everything seems to be working fine. I didn't have any complaints.”

Review by
05/29/2016

“They did work for me some time last year. I'd give them a B+. They have very high quality work and expertise. The only thing I can say against them is that we required better follow-up care with them on how to contain our foundation that was promised dealing with the technician.”

Review by
05/29/2016

“They were doing foundation repair for me on an odd project. It was a partially belowground shed, a walk-out shed, where my lot dropped significantly. They're probably an A- because they didn't put some of those pavers that you put down and sand. They didn't put those back right. That's the only thing. I'd give them an A rating.”

Review by
05/29/2016

“I had good results from having the foundation adjusted, but there was a lack of communication. The plumbing check failed. They didn't tell me that my warranty would be null and void if I didn't pay extra to have the plumbing work done. Now they've null-and-voided the warranty so I have no warranty on the work done. Every time I tried to get a response, I got nothing. So finally I got a letter telling me that. I'll give them a B.”

Review by
05/29/2016

“So far, everything is holding up. I ended up with a leak under my foundation, but I don't know—that happens. As far as the experience I had when they were here with the work they were doing, no complaints. They did excellent work across the board. As far as when the leak came up, from what I understand, that's possible with any foundation company. But as far as the work they did, the people that were here, the information and all, the experience with the workers was great. It was excellent. I've already recommended them.”

Review by
05/29/2016

“The foundation was all right. It was that once the guy comes out here and charged me $5. The foundation crew is good. It's that the plumbers come out here and try to hijack it. The foundation repair is the one who sent them out here. They're their right-hand company. Bunch of thieves is what they are. I ought to run them out of town. If I owned the company, I'd tell them, 'Y'all ain't doing no more work for me.' The foundation work was good. They're good; it's the plumbers who don't know what they're doing.”

Review by
05/29/2016

“They were doing foundation work for me. The only thing is, afterward, I didn't feel like there was a lot of communication. He told me that an engineer would come look at our house after they lifted it, and then I was told later they only come look at the interior, and they didn't. It was only exterior, so I felt like I was lied to, or there was miscommunication. Then I felt there was miscommunication about the plumber check coming. It's just because it's a really stressful situation. We'd never had it done before, so we didn't know how it was supposed to go. But they worked really hard. I still feel like our house has issues, so I should probably call them to come see. But he was pleasant to work with and nice. I'll probably give them a B+ for the miscommunication.”

“They did a great job. The owner of the company is an engineer, and he came in and talked to us about the problem we were having with the cracks in the house. The foundation was shifting, so instead of doing the concrete pillars—a lot of companies in the area do that, and it doesn't address a lot of the problem with the clay and the soil here—they went through and set the house up on those steel piers that go down into the bedrock. They have a transferable warranty on those. They did the work in just a little over a day, and they actually didn't have to use as many piers as they thought at first, so that saved us almost two thousand dollars. We haven't had any problem at all since the job has been done. In fact, a lot of the cracks that we had in the house are gone. They’re not one of those companies that’s turned around and changed their name to avoid going back and having to do work, so that was a reason why we liked the company. The amount of time they’ve been in business, the fact that the owner was the one that came out and talked to us, and the fact that he’s an engineer himself, were all positive. Give them an A+.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“They stuck with the contract that was outlined and some additional work that we all agreed on what needed to get it done in the same amount of time. They brought additional employees in to make sure that it was complete and then also they had a really informative job foreman that kept me informed that I worked with throughout the project, two or three days, and so that's what I would say. I was given their name by another contractor, a roofing contractor I believe. I would give them a B.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“I've used them twice; I went back to them a second time. They fixed my foundations. They’re just very hands-on. I did a couple estimates, and they were the one I picked out. An A is a perfect grade for them.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“It was a really good job. They fixed my foundation, and it worked. They did a pretty quick job, so I stayed home from work so I could watch them do it. It was a good, quality job.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“I had a couple of problems, but I called the owner, and he came out personally to take care of everything. So at the end of the day, even though I felt like I wasn't happy at one point, he made it right and even went the extra mile on a couple things. I was happy at the end of it, so they deserve an A.”

Review by
10/07/2015

“We had a positive experience with them. They put in a series of piers, leveled the house, and put in root barriers in our yard to prevent roots from getting under the foundation of the house again. I was very happy with them. The people were hardworking and certainly knew what they were doing. I would rate them as an A-level company.”

Review by
09/29/2015

“We were satisfied with them all around, from the estimate to the work, repairs, and cleanup—everything was positive about them. I have given their name out to a couple of people so far, because I was very satisfied with their work and the professionalism. I just liked the way the guy handled business.”

Review by

“They put in piers around one side of the house and with the drought and all I had to get them adjusted. I think I've had them adjusted twice and I believe I've still got problems with this house but I don't know. It's an ongoing situation. We'll go with a B.”

Review by
09/29/2015

“They did a real good job with no problems. Everything went pretty smooth, and they stayed until it was done. I’d had foundation problems in front of my house, so they put in steel piers. It wasn't bad, but it could've been better, so I’d give them an A-.”

Review by
09/29/2015

“I had a very good experience. In fact, we’ve recommended them several times over. They repaired the foundation the way they’d indicated to us they would. They did it all in one day, and the guy who ran the crew did a good job. I'd rate them as an A.”

Review by
09/29/2015

“They pretty much did everything they said they would, and their quote was very reasonable. They actually came back last week to look at something for us, and they took care of that above and beyond what we had expected, so we're very pleased with them. They earned an A.”

Review by

“I haven't had to make any claims or anything like that but the work that was done was done very well. They went over and above in some instances so I was pretty happy with that whole experience. A friend of mind had used them and had a good experience. I'd say a B+.”

Review by

“I liked the way they set up the job, came in, performed, cleaned up, and followed up with the proper engineering report. They put in several piers around the home, and they were excellent. They’d be the best grade—A+.”

Review by
09/29/2015

“I thought they did a good job, I thought they were nice people, I thought they were professional. I'm not sure if ultimately the issue is remedied because I've had separation of the foundation again this summer. They put some piers in to hold the house so it wouldn't move but it looked like it moved again this summer, there's a floor cracked again.”

Review by
09/29/2015

“The people who did the work were very professional; they cleaned up well and got the job done. They put in 16 steel piers, both outside and inside the home. They had to chisel through our tile floor, but they did it in a way that minimized the damage. Then, they put four piers inside to go with the ones outside. They did a good job. They get an A.”

Review by

“They fixed the foundation of my house. They had to put 12 pillars around the edge, and they actually had to dig through the garage to the foundation. The experience was positive because they completed the work in a very timely fashion and kept me informed during the entire process. They were referred to me by a gentleman who was fixing my roof.”

Review by

“They worked on our foundation. It's still not right but they worked on our foundation they came back a second time and worked on it again. They're very nice people but - this is Texas the foundation's are terrible in Texas. At least they're trying to fix the problem and it's not an easy fix here. I'd give them a B because I think there's still a lot of work to be done here.”

Review by
09/29/2015

“They did some foundation repair around the house. We’d had a water pipe break after it was inspected, and everyone said it was fine, but then a couple weeks later we had a water pipe break three times, so I don't know. But we like the company, so we're not blaming them. The service was good, they were fair, and I think they were honest, so I'd probably give them an A.”

“I had a very good experience with Granite Foundation Repair. The house had a small sink on one side in a certain spot, so it was slightly uneven. They elevated it to the proper specs, and I've had no problem since. They were prompt and on time, and they did what they advised me they would do. I had called several people, and I chose accordingly. I'd give them an A.”

“They got on the job, got it done, got it knocked out, did a good job. I am pleased with it. They didn't have to come back, so I guess that's the main thing. They job was big. They did, probably, fifteen steel rods down the bedrock. They jackhammered and cut up concrete inside the house and outside the house. They did a good job. I've referred them. A is fine.”
