The workers were always on time, even sometimes early. They were agreeable and worked long and hard, and finished the job before the estimated completion date. The clean up was very thorough and everything looked almost as good as new.

They were very professional, and said the house has settled a little.
They provided a detailed report as well as some suggestions on how to
prevent further settlement. We are currently in the process of getting
an additional quote for repair and I will update this review if they end
up doing work to re-level the house.

Foundation Repair reviews in Houston

We compared pressed pilings and bell-bottom piers, and selected

to do the bell-bottom piers rather than another company for pilings, because we felt the piers were a better solution, and
Houston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
worked with us to provide more piers for a competitive price than the piling company had recommended. Our house did not have major foundations problems, but we had doors that would no longer close, multiple cracks in drywall, and over 2" of settling in some places. We were very happy with

's work, and also with the contractors they recommended: one to do the hardwood floor repair where piers were put inside, and a plumbing company to do the hydrostatic testing (and ultimately needed replacement of cast iron pipe) after the foundation was repaired. Everything

told us they would do, they did. I particularly appreciated that they worked with us in the bid process to trim the number of piers back to help with cost, but without sacrificing stability. In the end they did almost twice the piers for only a little more than the pressed pilings bid we had gotten. In reading reviews here in advance, I read that some people said they seemed to cut corners based on what they advertise they do. This was not the case on our job; they delivered what they promised. We also liked that they worked with us and the floor company when locating the piers, to try to reduce or make easier the amount of flooring that would need replacement. For example, once pier excavation began, they determined they could locate some piers so that our kitchen floor would not need to be disturbed. They located other piers in closets.. They even eliminated a pier or two once the excavation began, when they determined they were not needed. They did do the soil testing that was advertised, and found in a few places that they could not go the promised depth without hitting sand which would not be stable for the pier. We were informed of every step and shown the soil tests. An independent engineer inspected the piers before pouring and agreed with the depth decision on the "shorter" piers. We coordinated very closely with every person and crew chief, and were on hand or easily accessible for most of the work. That helped with things like making on the fly decisions about pier locations and depths. We liked and appreciated the professionalism of everyone we dealt with at

. They are very busy; things did slip through the cracks, sometimes emails were not carefully read or the right hand didn't know what the left hand had promised. But any slippage like this was immediately resolved; just be very thorough with your communication and followup. Every crew was on time. All crews cleaned up; the drilling crew won the prize for cleanliness, amazing considering that they were drilling and hauling yards and yards of clay out of almost every room in our house. The leveling crew was the least neat, mainly in terms of a little trash from the workers left in the yard. Things to know: Not including the bidding process you will have three different crews to work with, four if you end up needing plumbing replacement or repair. Each crew has a different chief. Get to know these guys, they were each wonderful to work with. Double check everything you asked for or were told in advance with the crew chiefs; occasionally they were not aware of special requests made through the office. They all went out of their way to make the experience a good one for us as much as possible. We were told we might have collateral damage such as divots in the ceilings or scraped paint, on the inside work. This is due to the drilling rods. We did have this damage, though nothing major. It was suggested that we not repair sheetrock for a few months after the foundation repair, in order to let the house continue to settle. If you work at home or choose to be home during the drilling or leveling, invest in earplugs or good noise cancelling ear protection. But it's very useful to be there when questions come up, if you can stand it. Coordination between the other companies and
Houston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
(floor repair and plumbing) will be your responsibility, but
Houston Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
was quite helpful in working with them for scheduling. Just check to make sure both sides know what the dates of work are. You will be living with open holes in the floors and/or exterior beds or concrete for 10 or more days, after the piers are dug and while the concrete cures. They provide plywood to cover the holes, but this is a multi-week process, so just be prepared for your house not to be back to normal for a while. The work comes with a transferrable warranty and there are steps that need to be taken if you sell the house to make sure the warranty transfers. Read the paperwork. One last note: they provide their own form for you to review their work after it is done. On our review we noted that, after the leveling process, we found our outdoor patio umbrella had been broken. We had no idea which crew had done it; it was the only damage that was not inherent to the foundation work. If we'd found it earlier we'd certainly have mentioned it to a crew chief, but I never expected any action on it. The day after turning in our review, I was contacted by the company with an apology and the offer to replace the umbrella. This was an 'above and beyond' moment that typifies what they were like to work with. We hope NEVER to need their services again but if we do, we'll contact them. we've already recommended them to others.

Confusion on addresses. I am an angie's list member in both Houston and Ft Worth. when the Houston address came up, they responded they did not service the Houston area. Waiting on a refund from Angie's list.

Overall I was very pleased with AB. They were very professional and informative when I received my estimate. I really liked the lifetime transferable warranty for the foundation work, which I know that will add value to my home. They also don't really give you an estimate it is a bid. So the dollar figure they give you is the maximum that you will pay to have your foundation fixed. If they end up having to install more pilings then it is on them.
When they did the work the crew was very professional and efficient. They did a great job cleaning up after the job. I was impressed that they remortared any remaining cracks in the brick and re poured concrete to match my driveway and patio where they had to install pilings.
I would use this company again in the future if ever needed.

Everything went quickly and smoothly. The workers showed up on time. They worked solidly until noon and were back at work in exactly an hour! They had to move carpet and furniture to jackhammer up the foundation inside the house and dig tunnels underneath the house. It took four days. They were very careful to cover the holes in the foundation inside when they left for the evening. Crews were very professional. They re-stretched the carpet and placed all the furniture back when they were finished. They were very accommodating and worked to make everything exactly as I wanted it placed. The yard outside looked as though they had never been there when they left! Very impressed with this company!!!

Team was prompt and hit the effort hard with plenty of crew to tackle the job. There was a great deal of effort expended to do the job correctly to the pleasure of this client. The company owner was on location and actively guiding the efforts of the team. If for any reason he was absent, there was someone left on site for required questions and status. Adjustments made throughout the day to ensure good long-term results. Very pleased with outcome! The interesting fact is that I danced all around this company name to contact those well known and commercially visible competitors.

This job required extensive work in and around my home. The supervisor,

, explained every detail of the job. They moved and covered my furniture and removed plants from the front of the house.. Although my house was a total mess during the day, the men cleaned up each afternoon and covered holes so that I was safe during the night. The men were extremely polite and thoughtful. I was very impressed with the quality of the job and the men representing the company. I will recommend

They were very professional and knowledgeable. Although I didn't need foundation repair, they gave me plenty of tips and advice on how to prevent future problems. They also took measurements so if a problem does develop, we have something to compare it to. If I needed foundation repair, I would definitely use this company.
