Reviews in Goode for Installing Retaining Walls

AXpert Foundations Inc
I have a new construction in Rockbridge county that needed work done to properly drain around the house (crawlspace was filling up with water).  Xpert Foundations came to the rescue and installed a 3 part waterproofing system and exterior drain tiles.  Xpert Foundations was very busy, but worked me in so my new construction schedule wouldn't be further delayed.  While they were out here, Luis saw that the foundation for the step portion of my bricked back porch was laid on gravel and on top of an old perimeter drain.  It would eventually separate from the main porch, so while he was here and had the ditch dug for the drain pipes, I had him install 2 helical piers to hold the steps up.  I also needed an additional step on both the front and back porch and he framed and poured concrete for those.  Reinforcements of rebar were bored into the the existing foundation, extending into the new poured concrete to tie the two together.  My original GC did not plan for enough steps, which led to this problem.  In addition, my GC did not fill my concrete foundation blocks with rebar and concrete.  This left potential structural problems for lateral movement, especially in areas where the block was 6 rows high.  My structural engineer suggested additional reinforcement which involved knocking holes in the CMU, installing bent rebar and filling with cement.  Xpert Foundations did this work in critical areas only.  As money allows, I will call Xpert Foundations back out to fortify other areas in the foundation that are less critical, but still important for my peace of mind. The work was done quickly and thoroughly.  I would definitely recommended Xpert Foundations and would use them again as the need arises.  I feel my house is now well drained, and structurally sound.     I worked with Luis.  He was great - very professional and easy to work with.  I am a woman and am used to many contractors talking down to me or in such a way that I felt they thought my questions or concerns were stupid or trivial.  Luis was not that way at all.  He explained everything thoroughly and answered all my questions.  His crew was great also - very hard working and polite.
