Phil Carter, president of the company, contacted us within a day of leaving a message on his answering machine explaining the issues. His foreman, David, was out to my house within a week, to assess the situation. Prior to AIG, we had dealt with another company in the fall/winter of 2018 because of the same issue but clearly it went only partly resolved. This company came back and evaluated the si...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The original wood floors in our front room buckled. We had experienced the same issue last summer and early fall. The humidity readings in this room constantly remained at 90% or higher. 1) Extended the back right corner down spout below ground to tie into the existing downspout extension pipe for front right downspout. 2) Added clean outs to 3 existing downspout extensions 3) Removed debris from the crawlspace in the affected area; removed all the floor insulation beneath the affected area; installed new 12mil reinforced vapor barrier beneath the same affected area (vapor barrier extended up perimeter walls and piers in affected area).

From start to finish to job went extremely well. AEC was the only company out of the 4 estimates we received that understood our drainage issues and explained these issues to us in plain language. Phil and his team installed the proper equipment required to eliminate our drainage problems while respecting our property and cleaning up after themselves each day. They are a real professional team who...

AEC provided excellent customer service from beginning to end. We were happy with their work and the pricing was more than fair. We have used them on two of our primary homes and the service has been spot on. I recommend you give AEC a chance if you are have any type of foundation or drainage project. Thanks AEC for 14 years of service.

The gentleman who called me back was VERY helpful and polite. He gave me the information that was needed above what I had already researched to be able to do the project on my own. This was very much appreciated since the project had a very tight schedule to get it completed prior to another project in the area of my yard.

Advanced Engineering designed and installed an impressive pump station for my basement. Although there has been a pump in the basement since the house was built in 1960, It never captured enough water. Sometimes I might accumulate as much as a foot or so of water in the basement if there was a rally hard rain. After a couple of days the pump would get the water level down to 2 or 3 inches and I wo...

They were quick to respond to our request for an estimate. Dave came out to inspect and was direct and to the point about what the issues were, which we very much appreciated. Dave and Mr. Carter put together a couple of different proposals and once we picked a plan, they were very quick to start the job. Dave has been the lead on the project and walked us through each step, ensuring we knew what ...

AES inspected the structural parts of the house and repaired floor beams, piers, beams, etc, then put down waterproofing, including bringing the waterproofing up the sides of the crawlspace and piers, sealing the crawlspace from moisture issues. In addition, they removed the brick facing of the exterior walls and replaced it with siding, reducing the weight of the house on the foundation. AES are ...
