Brick or Stone Repair
We were experiencing drainage issues with a previously designed flagstone patio. We would have standing water for days following any rainfall in the area. We chose to hire Dallas / Fort Worth Foundation Repair because they were the only contractor that offered a three year warranty for completed work. Initially, we had issues with confirming the agreed upon plan and start date. I will say that weather issues played a role and delayed our original start date which cannot reflect badly on this contractor. When the crew finally showed up - the majority of the work was completed in one visit. Our only frustration was after laying a drain system, the area where the work was done was not re-sodded as expected. After several days & calls - the contractor sent a team leader to level, haul out extra dirt, and re-sod the area which was finally returned to its original state. John and his crew are very nice and professional. We are pleased with the end result and appreciate the 3 year warranty for this repair. I would rate them 3.5 out of 5 stars for this project. Had they not left an area of yard unfinished, (originally),layed the sod in the first place, and kept previously scheduled appointments on time & without rescheduling, we would have given them a higher rating! We are pleased with the final outcome overall and have recently recommended them to a couple of Neighbors.May 14, 2016Verified
I was in search of a reputable company who would not only give me a great price but be great at what they do and be fast and efficient. I am so glad I came across Dallas Fort Worth Foundation Repair because the were everything I was looking for and then some. They did a terrific job and we're done in a timely manner for a great price. About 5 days after the Job was done Mr. John Lee called to make sure I was completely satisfied and assured me he would always be there for me. That's what I call great service !Dec 14, 2015
DFW Foundation Repair came to repair my foundation last week. This crew of workers worked like their life depended on getting my home foundation "fixed". John was very helpful in explaining what they were going to do and how it would affect my home.Jan 15, 2016

Removed wing walls. The little wing walls with a seam at the house went well. The large wing wall where the brick interlaced with the house did not go as expected. We will have to hire someone else to repair it.Jun 4, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Every project is unique. We offer a free foundation inspection and estimate. It's very important to determine the cause of the foundation failure. Improper drainage is one of the main reasons a foundation will fail and we recommend installing french or direct drains to ensure water is diverted away from the foundation. We will determine what caused the foundation to fail, how to correct this so it does not happen in the future. Sometimes a homeowners policy will actually cover water leaks under the slab so if we determine the home has proper drainage we will usually have a plumber come out and do a leak test. We offer economical solutions for your foundation repair and costs run from $235 per pier up to $350 per pier. We supply a repair diagram with all repair proposals and a written estimate detailing the repair work required.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We come out with a zip level and measure each property to determine if the foundation has moved from it's original state. We use a zip level which is an atmospheric measuring device that is accurate to 0.005 inch. It measures your floor elevations directly in digits so we can quickly determine where your foundation has dropped or heaved upward. These measurements are then used to engineer a repair for your foundation. We give every customer a repair diagram and a written estimate within 24 hours of the initial property inspection. I personally visit every project at the time of an inspection and I am usually seen on the projects at least once per day. I am not there to oversee the job as I have a lead foreman that has 18 years of experience and who is a 2nd generation foundation repair expert. I am there to speak with customers, answer any questions they might have and to help refer them to the right company on any needed work that is not tied to their foundation repair. I do the final walk through after the project is complete with my foreman and the property owner or their agents. I pay top dollar to my employees and we have the same people on our crews. I have two specialists whose only function is to press the piers and who are responsible for the lifting of the home. We do not use day laborers so the same personnel will be working on your project from start to finish. They have worked together as a crew for years and we get the job done correctly and we are in and out of a project as quickly as possible so our clientele can get back to living in their home with no obstructions or any inconveniences. If interior piers are required I will excavate and press the exterior piers first and the following day we will work inside and complete all aspects of the repair and patch any holes so homeowners are not forced to live with workers inside their home more than 1 business day.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have over 35 years of experience in residential construction and remodeling. I have oversaw the construction from start to finish of more than 1,500 homes in the Dallas area ranging in size from 1200 square feet to over 15,000 square feet. During my career with volume builders I established a good source of subcontractors for every facet of new home construction. I know which subs are good and have been able to help them with their business growth and they have returned the favor. I have worked and been trained as a structural analyst and property inspector and have been employed as a project manager and even worked in upper management for a major home builder before establishing my company in 2003. I can read blueprints, engineer reports and I have been trained on the various soil types and how to properly construct a new foundation or how to repair a existing foundation.
