Couldn't have asked for better service. Visit for estimate was prompt and well explained. The family in the house next door to ours also contracted for the same service. Turned out that our house did not need as much sand as predicted, so the final cost was for the actual amount used -- half the estimate. The other house was much worse than ours so the final cost met the estimate but in no way was more than that. Arrival was on time, clean-up performed as promised. This is a big job that requires heavy equipment in the street but completed in one day per house so not much fuss or

. Homeowners across the street watched the performance and are now contacting Gators to pump sand under their own houses.

when we called they were backed up on when they could give estimates as much as a month out. The des moines area had a very wet May and June. They were professional over the phone and later came out to give estimate. We hired someone else to do the job because they could do the work sooner and this was one of our rental properties.

we've had issues with water in our basement for a year or so.. We contacted EFS a year ago, and
Tolland Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
, came to our house and performed an inspection and made a recommendation at that time for a sump pump. We thought we'd found a different solution when a plumber told us our outside downspout line was clogged. We paid to have that replaced, only to discover more water in the basement this Spring.

came back, and made the same recommendation (wish we would have listened then!)
The job took a total of 3 days. The first part, in which most of the drainage and 2 sump pumps were added took 2 days, and then an additional day to install the extra drainage. (We had to have EFS come back and add some drainage to our lower basement area when we discovered water in the basement after a heavy rain). The job involved the use of a jackhammer and could have made a huge mess. We were prepared for this and very worried about potential dust that we'd heard could result, but had absolutely no problem. EFS was clean, and covered all areas thoroughly before they began. The staff arrived promptly, were very informative and friendly, answering all of our questions. The day we discovered water, we were naturally very distressed, but EFS answered our call and
Tolland Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
, the lead engineer, came to the house immediately to inspect what happened. The sump pump in that part of the basement was working a good deal that day, but there was one interior wall where we didn't add drainage, and that was where the water was coming from. We chose not to initially add the drain on that wall because we had a good deal of built-in cabinetry there. After the additional water, we had the cabinetry removed, and more drain installed.
Installing sump pumps was not something we wanted to have done, as it required tearing up a huge part of a remodeled basement. Our water issues were pretty severe, and it was absolutely necessary. We received 2 other estimates before we decided to go with EFS. One was actually too low, and the company did not seem trustworthy. The other was a few thousand higher. This was more money than we'd wanted to spend for an "unfun" improvement project, but trusted EFS would perform a professional job.
Haven't had a heavy rain since the job was completed, but am hoping this does the trick!

Repairing a foundation? Look no further! After extensive research & many recommendations later, my
Tolland Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
ended with
Tolland Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
&
Tolland Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
at
Tolland Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
Company. This was no easy choice. Because several different foundation companies gave me several different opinions on how they would do the repair work. I wound up paying an independent engineer to inspect my property.
Tolland Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
came closest to the independent engineer's recommendation. Lucky for me, it was also the least expensive option. What I appreciated most about the initial visit to discuss the details of the whole process, was
Tolland Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
&
Tolland Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
's approachable manner. I felt very comfortable asking them questions, which took about 40 minutes. When my son-in-law came by a little later, they voluntarily took the time to explain the whole proposal again to him. At no time was there any "hard sell" tactics. Both my son-in-law & his brother have since used this company to inspect their properties. Both had positive outcomes with no need to repair recommendations.
Having your foundation repaired can be an overwhelming experience. Quality Repair made the process as "painless" as possible.
Workers arrived on time. They worked efficiently & completed the job by noon the next day, which was sooner than the predicted
2 days. From all the other comments I have read about, I envisioned a huge mess in my front yard. I was pleasantly surprised
to find the crew to be very respectful of my property. Most of my hedges along the front of my house remained intact.
Needless to say, I would highly recommend you include this company as part of your foundation research. After all the choices
out there, it's such a pleasure to work with kind, trustworthy people who do their job well. They do exist!
Sincerely,

We contracted with
Tolland Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
for our home foundation leveling. They indicated that they would have to drive 12 to 20 pile into each pier location. The initial crew showed up and started the job. This crew cut the root ball around the shrubs VERY small. That may not have been a concern except as they were doing the work on one side of the house they cut into the gas line. They told me they could not work at my house until the gas line was fixed, so they left my house to go to another job, leaving the shrubs in the sun with no soil on the roots to dry out despite me wetting them regularly. They showed the next day to finish the job. They finished digging the pier location and driving the pile in less than 3 hours and started leveling our house. They finished this despite the fact that I observed one of the piers installed with less than 5 piles. In this process they broke the water line to my house as well as several of my sprinkler heads. We proceeded on. They leveled one side first and we check all the doors and they were great. They then did the other side of the house. The main crew left in a hurry to go to another job leaving a couple of guys to fill in and clean up. Their version of clean up was to stack all the clay against the house as high as necessary to just call it level. Some of the rest was piled up against the fence with a promise to pick it up the first of the next week. The result of the level of the second side of the house resulted in a shift in the foundation on the other side of the house that "was" level and the doors no longer shut correctly on that side and we developed new cracks all in an afternoon.



After several days of calls we were able to get the attention of the ownership and they agreed to correct the issues. Here is where Allied stepped up. They sent a crew which I would rate as their “A” crew out. They added piles to each pier and releveled the house and kept me fully informed as they progressed. They cleaned up the yard. The only issue I had was they move the dirt from against the house and added it to the pile against t the fence with a promise the office would send someone oput the first of the week to pick it up. The office agreed to pay for the shrubs they killed and after 2 months they finally picked up the dirt.



Allied is a competent company but like many need oversight. This includes requiring adequate root balls extracted for the size of the shrub, a pile count for each pier, a plan for excess dirt removal and final inspection of the house BEFORE the crew closes any pier.

Everything was great. I was kept aware of everything that was going on and the time basis for the job. The personnel was good to work with and did a complete job and cleaned up afterwords. Thisis the second time we have used them and they have kept us aware of everything from the office personnel to the laborer. The foreman explained the paperwork after the job and made sure everything was explained properly.

We were very please with
Tolland Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
and his crew. To begin with we had 4 companies come out and give us a quote to straighten the basement wall and
Tolland Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
was the only one who said there is basically no way to push the wall back outward without digging a trench on the outside to relieve the pressure pushing against the wall. All quotes received were close in price but the work
Tolland Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
and his crew had to do went well above what all the other companies explained they would do. The others only assured us that they would stop the wall from caving further in not actually straighten the wall.
Tolland Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
took his time going over all details of the process and what we were to expect.
He and his crew were very professional and polite. We are very happy with the work they did and the outcome was just as he promised.
