“We've been working with JES for several years now with our foundation and our encapsulation under the house. They've always done an excellent job. I'd give them an A+.”

“It was very positive. They're extremely customer focused. They put the customer first. They have a good plan of how they take care of your problem. In my case, we had a moisture issue in our crawlspace. I had three other companies come in and give me quotes and tell me what they're going to. None of them could step up to what they did or what they said they would do, and they did it. There was a moisture issue where they did an enclosure. They conditioned the space. They put down a vinyl liner and they put a liner installation in the wall in stop. They took out the installation and installed a dehumidifier. I'd give them an A+.”

“George, the general manager, has been very, very helpful. It's been going on for a year and a half. Initially, they did foundation work and they did insulation. I believe they checked the part of the foundation. I don't know what to call that, but they did their part. I think that once they got focused on the job, they did a great job. I'd give them an A. I'd recommend them.”

“They did a good job. They did excellent work. I had no complaints. I would recommend them. I don't have a problem with them.”

“They did excellent work. I had no complaints. I would recommend them.”

“They were great, straightforward, and explained everything. I would say A.”

“They're a good company. They did excellent work and I have no complaints. I'd recommend them.”

“They are a good company, on time, professional, knowledgeable, and finished the job. They did waterproofing. I'd give them an A+.”

“They were just prompt. They did the job specially, cleaned up and pretty much did what they said. It was not really foundation. They had to install the interior French drain system in my basement. I'd give them an A+. I would recommend them.”

“They came in. They described the job and they did it. They told us what not to do as far as putting the old cement. They were very professional. It was foundation repair. It had a very small crack that was just seeping water. I'd give them an A.”

“For the most part, it was positive. I'd say a little bit better than neutral, but not 100 percent positive. The guy who came out and initially did the inspection was able to when the guy who did the work. They were able to rectify it. They did a kind of waterproofing. It was a repair. I'd give it an A.”

“We liked their customer service. We liked the actual work that they did. They had good, quality work. It was just the communication, the communication with the office staff regarding our appointment. They were prompt and reliable. It was drainage. They put in a drainage system in our basement. I'd give them an A.”

“JES Foundation Repair solved the water problem in our basement. We had had water coming into the basement for 33 years. We had tried several methods, and JES had the solution. They drilled on the inside of the foundation and installed a drainage system, which works great. We now have a dry basement.”

“A-1 for service, customer focus, professionalism. We interacted a lot, and they could not have been more respectful of my property and grounds while working. Class act.”

“My experience with JES Foundation Repair was exemplary. We appreciate how we were kept in the loop. The workers were punctual, courteous, and informative. After the completion of the work, the area was returned to its original look.”

“Outstanding product and service. They did everything they promised.”

“Kevin, John, and Israel were professional. Plus, as a crew they worked very well together. I was here while the guys were working and felt comfortable with their ability, expertise, and overall workmanship of the job.”

“What was a homeowner's nightmare situation was handled so professionally by JES. Everyone was so willing to answer all my questions. They left my home in better shape than it has ever been. I would highly recommend JES.”

“All?employees of JES that we dealt with were very professional. Mike Kut gave a great explanation/overview of the process when he came out to provide an estimate. Communication from the office staff (Heather and Sidney) was great, timelines were accurate. The workmen (Demetrius, Matt, Jared, Alex) were polite, prompt and neat. The work was done quickly, with minimal interruption of my day. The guys used drop cloths and plastic sheeting to minimize the dust and mess outside the immediate work area.”

“The only issue I had was the length of time between the contract being written, and the actual work being performed.”

“I was really pleased with the work performed by JES.”

“Looking forward to using them again for some other work.”

“From front to end, a very positive experience. The system has been in place for a year and has been fully tested and it's working exactly as designed.”

“The personnel were friendly and explained fully the scope of the job after a slight problem they came back and fixed the problem.”

“Quality work, very pleased with the end product. Onsite manager explained what they were doing. They cleaned the area daily and were respectful of my property and my neighbors.”

“In every visit to this point JES has been courteous, punctual, responsive, efficient and clean. I am so far very satisfied with the drainage system they installed and the maintenance that they do. I'm very pleased that they call me when maintenance is due. I would not hesitate to use their services again in future for more expansive foundation work/repair.”

“Several years ago JES repaired a crack and water leak to our basement wall. At that time, they also improved our original sump pump system. Since then they have provided annual checkup service to their work. The most recent service was to correct a leaking exhaust pipe from the sump pump. The repair was done quickly and we have had no other problems.”

“Everyone who we worked with from JES from beginning to end was knowledgeable, polite, communicative, punctual, and patient with questions and concerns. They did fantastic work and left their work areas spotless.”

“The service was performed for the price and in the schedule and time framework established. The workers were courteous, and punctual. The sales rep was great. The installation was done in the spring of 2016, and after some torrential rains, all seems fine. No more flooding!”

“Great bunch of guys who know what they are doing! Job turned out a little more complicated but they handled it with ease and professionalism.”

“I have another company come out before JES and state that they could fix my house and even as big of a company as they were, backed out days before they were supposed to start. JES came in and took care of everything, now the guy that came in and installed everything with his crew was wondering why he did not reinforce a little more. Since they were already here, I had him add a few more pushpins. My house has been slowly settling and it even got 'fixed' back in 1992-1993 and it only have a 10year warranty! The installers came out and explained what they were going to do, did a walkthrough of my house and we went back and forth with some Q and A's. They would go over with me what they done that day and the next morning they would let me know what they would try to do that day. He would also ask and make sure that I was good with everything. He was even going to pressure wash my driveway which I thought was a little over the top!”

“Jose checked my crawl space to make sure that it was still sealed and that the sump pumps were working properly. He showed genuine concern for my property. The door to the crawl space was not securely done previously. He willingly took responsibility and fixed the problem. I was very pleased with his work.”

“We were very pleased with the work and the workers. A job well done.”

“JES made a special effort to clean up a small flood in my crawl space, which had been insulated by JES a year prior. Grateful for the prompt attention.”

“JES's expertise was the best. The work performed was the best. It was after the work was done, there was a slight issue with cleanup/finishing. We had to call back several times to get certain items done/completed, but they eventually took care of it, which gave you a since that they indeed stand behind their work.”

“Crawl space sealed. They did a great job.”

“The service tech inspected all elements of the system -indoors and outdoors. Of particular note is that he found that the installation of the sump pump was deficient. The connections did not allow adequate access to inspect the check valve. So, he made a reconstruction of the pipe connection so that he could gain access to the check valve. Kudos to him.”

“JES provided a prompt estimate and then a timely repair for our damp basement walls. I would highly recommend JES to anyone with foundation issues.”

“JES was very prompt, courteous and professional. No question was ignored, they explained everything as they went along. Highly recommend them.”

“Work completed in time and quality as contracted.”
