and his work crews did an outstanding job stabilizing my pool deck. He kept me informed of job's progress on a daily basis. The contract for the work was clear and easy to understand.
is the type of person who works right along side by side with his crews---very hands on! I was also impressed by the fact that he had a professional engineer on site during the pier work. The job site was left clean. I am very pleased with all aspects of his work.
will be very honest and up front with you. I would highly recommend
to anyone needing foundation (and related) work. I would not hesitate to call him for any additional work on my property.

Having a 1950's ranch house, cracks appear from time to time so I have the foundation inspected yearly. The $49.00 deal from
was a very good deal indeed. The appointment was scheduled within three days of purchase.
called the morning of the appointment and was able to come early. He inspected foundation inside and out and went under the house. Everything checked out okay and the new cracks were nothing out of the ordinary. That evening I had an email from him with the report attached. I have nothing but good things to say about this company. Very pleasant to deal with.

Look no further.
CPS Foundation is the real thing.
Not only was I pleased. The services CPS provided are likely the most professional I've ever experienced in any company that has ever worked on our home.
The initial pricing was done by

Huxol, a trained engineer. He knows his stuff. So that the work we agreed to be done was the product of a conversation with a highly trained professional. The crew showed up promptly and was

by the CPS owner,

's son,

also knows his stuff. Estevon who works with
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
was the crew foreman, another personal and well trained task master.
We had up to seven people working at our home over three days. They were efficient and pleasant to be with. They worked well together and brought great spirit to the projects. Foundation work, like most any work, is done through a well laid out plan. But also, like life itself, small questions arise as the project goes forward. Each time one did the answer seemed to be, "Give more value, not less." In my case the price never

, but the crew did small add ons as we went forward, sealing, for example, cracks that were not first apparent.
My wife likes cleanliness and is not always easy to please. Not to worry. They cleaned up after themselves, even to meet my wife's standards. Finally, I would say the whole team took great pride in their work. This is one well managed company. I could not recommend CPS Foundation more.

Set up an appointment for an estimate at noon on Friday. Well after noon received a call that he wouldn't be able to make it for another hour. Set up a new appt for 3:45. He didn't show at 3:45 and didn't call to say he was running late (again). At 5:15 he shows up. We sent him packing. Someone who wasted most of our day and missed two appointments by hours is not someone we want to do business with, nor do we think they would be punctual on the job either.

Fry, the salesman we dealt with, told us the project would be finished in 1 week. It took 3 weeks. The first drain at the bottom of the concrete steps was not a french drain system that was specified on the plan. That had to be redone. Both windows had to be taken out and reset, because the first time it rained, the water poured in around them. The windows are not leaking anymore. However, the block was never sealed outside and when it rains, we have water seepage through the block by the door. My husband has called the office multiple times and left messages with
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
Fry. We were promised that by
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
25, the block would be sealed. Well, today is
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
25, and no one has shown up or called to correct this problem. Yes, the project did pass final inspection with Grove City. However, the inspectors did not see the water coming through the block when it rains hard. I have pictures of the water coming in. Now, the basement is being finished, and it is time to put up the insulation and drywall. We sure aren't going to do that with a water problem existing. This company guaranteed no water leakage. Well, they haven't lived up to their word and we are tired of the stalling. They have our money and have not lived up to their word. We had no water leakage through the basement block walls before this project started.

We had a number of complications that came up, like not 1 but 2 oil tanks that contaminated the soil, and what appeared to be a stream running under the house. Also the soil was too sandy and wet to properly support the new foundation.
The experience with Excavators NW from start to finish was stellar and they went beyond normal support to help solve some complicated issues. The superintendant on the job inparticular was awesome, and his years of experience and support helped drive the complications to great solutions.
Even with a large amount of other jobs, the owner came by on a regular basis to check up on the work and ensure that I was happy with how everything was progressing.
This was a very big job and I would not heistate to hire Excavators NW again. They do excellent work and went above and beyond what I would have expected.

After moving in to our new home, we found a crack in the foundation upon inspection. It looked like it had once been pasted over with concrete but not properly grinded/filled. It was beginning to crack again.

In early March, I noticed the plastic sheathing in my crawlspace had started to deteriorate and causing some dampness to the ground. I contacted
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
for an estimate for replacement. Within several days Mr
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
contacted me for an inspection and estimate. He arrived on the scheduled date and time and we discussed estimations for 3 options: 1) replacement of existing sheathing, 2) encapsulation and sealing of the crawlspace, and 3) encapsulation and installation of the "Cleanspace" system which included the addition of a dehumidifier and several sump pumps. He then conducted the inspection and took numerous pictures of the existing condition. He also took humidity measurements. The pictures were revealing in that there was some initial start of undermining of an area of the foundation and at one of the foundation piers. I decided to go for #3, the complete encapsulation and Cleanspace. He also stated that as part of the work, the undermining would be backfilled with tile fill. I received a call within a few days with a work schedule date within 2 weeks. I informed the
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
receptionist that the initial date was going to conflict with a previous commitment and that I would prefer a later date. I received a call within a week with a new date that was satisfactory with me. The crew arrived on the date and within 5 minutes of the indicated time. The crew foreman discussed the procedure the crew would use for the repair and was polite enough to request a suitable area for them to have the material (gravel, crushed tile and material) delivered. The foreman stated that the work would take 3 working days but in actual fact they were able to complete it in 2 when an additional crew was brought in. He also kept me completely informed as to the progress of the work and kept the work area around the house and trucks clean and neat. The schedule of contractors such as the material delivery and electrical contractors (to wire in the dehumidifier and sump pumps) appeared to be well coordinated. When the job was completed, the foreman and I went under the house and he described all the work that was performed and took the time with me to discuss the workings of the mechanicals. I was very impressed with the professionalism of all the
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
personnel from the estimator (Mr
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
) to the foreman, crew and phone receptionist. They were respectful of my property and performed the work as described. The foreman also repaired a hole in my foundation that was put in by a plumber to run piping and never filled in. With the experience I had with this company and the work that they performed, I would highly recommend them for crawlspce work to anybody and would use them again if needed.

Long story.. If you have slab/foundation issues you will want to read on.. If not, you will get bored so don't bother. In short, I believe Mr.
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
saved me thousands and thousands of dollars and gave me piece of mind.. He is professional and knowledgeable. If you have foundation issues, I recommend spending the money to have him look it over. You may not get a lucky as I did (with the cause of the problems) but you may.. Spend the money and get it done! Now with the long story: In 2009 I noticed some of my doors inside the house didn't want to close. I noticed others wouldn't stay closed. I started seeing cracks in sheetrock (on the ceiling, above doors, on walls etc.). I also noticed some brick on the outside was cracking, trim boards around the house pulling away at the corners, expansion joints on the outside of the house getting wider and wider.. It was clear that I had "foundation problems". I called the 3 most popular "foundation repair" companies. I thought it made sense to get a quote and advice from each, compare the 3 and go with one of them. I thought with 3 I would be able to pick one that wasn't the cheapest but wasn't the most expensive either. I didn't want to base my decision on price alone. I thought they would be fairly close to one another. Well.. They weren't. Their advice was also contradicting (not just with each other but from the same person during the same conversation!). Very frustrating! It was clear they either didn't know what they were doing or were just trying to baffle me with B.S. Pricing: The first quote I got from 'Company A' was around $28K. the salesman called me a few weeks later claiming he gave me the wrong price. "The price I gave you was for a 3 story and you have a 2 story. Let me send you another quote." I said okay and 3 weeks later (after hounding him for it) he gave me another quote. This one was for $31K! Higher than the first quote! So I called him and asked why a 2 story foundation repair would be more than a 3 story foundation repair.. He tried to talk me in circles and when he got done, I asked him again.. "Why is price higher for a 2 story?". Again, he tried to talk in circles.. Well.. This one was off my list. On to the next. The quote I got from 'Company B' was around $15K. The salesman also contradicted himself while telling me what the issues were. The quote I got from 'Company C' was around $11K. Not one of these companies told me what was causing the problem. They all just said "this is Texas soil and foundation problems are normal and expected in Texas". With the prices so different and the contradictions (not only in their own conversations but with what I had learned by researching), I didn't feel comfortable with any of them. So.. I called a "structural engineer" (not Mr.
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
). He came out and looked around and said "the problem is with moisture, the problem is always moisture. You need to place a clay/dirt mixture all the way around the house to keep moisture from getting under the slab". Well.. This went against EVERYTHING I had learned about foundations in Texas. He was out.. I stewed on all of this for quite a while. Frustrated and watching my cracks get bigger and bigger and more and more. Very stressful to watch you largest investment going to h***.. I called 1 more foundation repair company recommended by my brother-in-law. They came out and within 10 minutes gave me a price of $5K. WAY cheaper than the others. This of course concerned me. They were out.. I stewed a while longer.. I finally decided to check out Angie's List and find a structural engineer. I found Mr.
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
. I am a busy person and so is he but he worked with my schedule and came out to take a look. He took measurements of the slab inside/outside the house (just like 2 of the foundation repair companies did). He made a quick drawing of the shape of the slab with the measurements where he took them. He sat down with me and explained the drawing and what the root (pun intended) cause of the problems were.. The root cause was the trees around my house. 2 were approximately 20' from the house 1 was approximately 10' from the house. The drawing he made clearly showed the slab was dropping around the areas where the trees were. With the last few summers being so dry, the trees were pulling all of the water from under the slab causing the dirt to collapse in turn causing my slab to collapse. He gave me 2 options. Remove the trees or put in a root
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
. He told me I could have the foundation repaired but without addressing the cause, the foundation would just continue to sink and I would be calling the foundation repair companies back. He also said that after removing the trees the foundation would slowly move back into place (probably would take a few years). He told me that if I dug holes around the foundation 2'X2' and 2' off of the foundation, every 5' then filled those holes with water every day, the foundation would move back much quicker. The idea here is to get water back into the dirt under the house. I opted to have the trees removed (all 3 of them). I then dug the holes (back of the house first) and filled them with water every day (maybe not EVERY day but I tried to do it every day). Within 2 months the expansion joint in the back started closing up. After another month or 2 it was back to normal.. I dug the holes around the rest of the house and filled them with water. The front took longer (it was much worse than the back) but slowly doors started closing properly (and staying closed). The expansion joint in the front started closing, the cracks in the brick started closing.. Today, the expansion joint in the front is almost back to normal. I expect in another year or so ALL will be back to normal. I wish I could upload some photos. I took pictures of the expansion joints and cracks before doing anything. Over time I took more pictures. I found an app for the IPhone that would allow me to compare side by side pictures. WHAT A RELIEF!! The pictures clearly show Mr.
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
knew what he was talking about. If Mr.
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
wants the photos to show his customers, I will gladly send them to him. From where I sit, he saved me thousands of dollars, tons of grief and the stigma of having foundation repair done on my house. You may not be as lucky as I was with the cause of the foundation problems but then again you may! Even if you have no trees I trust that Mr.
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
will be able to identify the cause and not just sell you a fix. My thoughts were
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
: A foundation repair company makes their money on fixing foundations. The bigger the problem the more they have to do, the more money they make. An engineer makes his/her money off of inspecting. No matter what the engineer finds, his/her pay is going to be the same. If you have foundation issues, CALL MR.
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
before calling a foundation repair company! The foundation repair companies don't want to solve the problem. They want to cover up the problem. You may ultimately need foundation repair but MAYBE NOT. FYI, I purposely waited before giving Mr.
Hillsboro Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
a review here to give his recommendations time to work. It is now 9 months later. The foundation is clearly (and slowly) moving back to where it belongs. WHAT A RELIEF!!
