Home Construction Foundation System – Tella Firma

Revolutionizing the Home Construction Foundation Industry, Cost Effective Tella Firma Foundation System Virtually Eliminates Foundation Movement

A revolutionary home construction foundation system.

September 27, 2010.

Advanced Foundation Repair recently announced their partnership with Tella Firma. Under the agreement, Advanced Foundation has exclusive rights for several major Texas Metro areas along with the rights for other Texas regions to raise Tella Firms foundation systems for new home construction.

Tella Firma Foundation Systems

Tella Firma, a new foundation construction technology, is poised to revolutionize new home construction and the foundation industry. By reducing construction costs, builders now have a foundation system that virtually eliminates foundation movement. The goal is to all but eliminate the need for future foundation repairs.

Tony Childress, P.E., S.E., and Mike Kelly, P.E., of Childress Engineering Services, Inc. developed Tella Frima. Builders use this new technology for new home construction. Tella Firma’s engineered solution requires fewer materials. This reduces builders’ costs. Using only a shallow beam around the perimeter replaces interior stiffener beams. This in turn requires approximately 30% less concrete. It also provides for approximately 10% to 20% less piers than conventional slab-on-grade construction.

Slabs are poured on top of the ground. Once slabs are poured, Advanced Foundation Repair uses Tella Firma lifting mechanisms located over the piers, to raise slabs above the ground to desired heights.

New Technology in Use

With this existing new technology, Advanced Foundation Repair looks forward to growing their business in this new direction. “The patent approved Tella Firma process provides builders with a cost efficient way to avoid common structural problems with new slabs that lead to the need for costly foundation repairs.” Fred Marshall, the owner of Advanced Foundation Repair, stated, “Over time, I expect the Tella Firma system to save home builders millions of dollars per year in foundation repair costs. Homeowners have a new solution, sparing them the inconvenience and stresses associated with foundation repairs. We expect the use of the Tella Firma system to expand rapidly over the next several years.”

I can't too highly recommend this company. I had work done of my foundation by another company several years ago. That work did not resolve the problem, and that company did not fix. Advanced was recommended to me by mother, who said they were the best in the business. I agree! They were polite, professional, charged reasonable prices, and did excellent work. They also have a strong guarantee that is backed by a trust. I can't imagine why you'd use any other company.read more

Advanced Foundation repair is the only way to go! The engineer, Eric was kind, helpful and informative! The crew under Haynard's watch was unbelievably considerate. The crew was in and out of our house for 5 days. Everyone of them were happy even in the 90 degree weather. They work hard and were very polite. If you saw my house now you would never even know they were here. They cleaned up every night and on the last day it looked like new! Very thankful to have been able to work with them.read more

Advanced recently performed our foundation repair and did a fantastic job! The job took four days and throughout the process, the workers were on time each day, were kind and courteous. They left our house clean each day and took great care in making my wife and newborn comfortable during the repair. They came back out to make adjustments, as was expected, and I am more than pleased with the results. Thanks to Juan Martinez, Miguel Mata and Ernesto Alvarato for doing everything I requested. I highly recommend Advanced Foundation Repair, they know what they are doing.read more
