Texans know they can trust Advanced Foundation Repair


Texans know they can trust Advanced Foundation Repair.


by Jane Schreier Jones

Over the past 26 years, Garland Homeowner Bonnie Spicer has met with a multitude of contractors and repair firms about repairs to her house. According to Spicer, one company mis-measured her home and another company used a scare tactic to try to get her to sign.

According to Fred Marshall, CEO of Advanced Foundation Repair, such practices are, unfortunately, all too frequent in the foundation repair industry.

“Without a doubt, the only company that has earned my respect and my appreciation is Advanced Foundation Repair,” Spicer says. “The treated me well, did a fantastic job, and now I heartily recommend them to everyone.”

Marshall, who was a past president of the statewide Foundation Repair Association, began Advanced Foundation Repair in 1992. Since then, his business has doubled in size every 15 months, and the company now has four offices in Texas.

The reason for such phenomenal growth is simple, according to Marshall. “We serve Texas homeowners with honesty and quality workmanship,” he says. “We focus on what people need and only what they need.”

Texas is the single largest market for foundation repair in the United States. The state’s expansive soils act like a sponge, swelling and shrinking as they gain and lose water. A house and foundation move up and down and, when too much damage occurs, foundation repairs may be needed. Often, Marshall and his crews recommend a good watering system around the home. “People are surprised when I tell them that, ” Marshall chuckles. “They can’t believe a foundation repair company can be so honest.” When repair is necessary, Advanced Foundation Repair uses state-of-the-art techniques and materials to re-support a house’s foundation. Marshall has been granted one patent for foundation repairs, and has others pending. The company’s Web site www.foundationrepairs.com) provides detailed explanations and diagrams, plus Marshall and his crews make sure the homeowner understands exactly what needs to be done.

Advanced Foundation Repair gets more than 60 percent of its business from referrals. “Neighbors talk to neighbors, and friends talk to friends,” Marshall says. “I’m so proud that our reputation earns us new business every day.”

Advanced Foundation Repair doesn’t just give you a promise,” Marshall says. “We offer a lifetime warranty that’s transferable to every owner of the house. To make sure our foundation repair warranty will truly be there for our customers, we established the Texas Foundation Warranty Trust.” The Trust is now an independent company with Wells Fargo Bank serving as trustee.

“I have never met more straightforward people who did such excellent work,” says Spicer. “When their workers had to remove my shrubs to do the foundation repair, they put each one in a burlap bag. Then they had me approve the exact replacement of each shrub, to make sure it was facing the right way! Now, that’s attention to detail.

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
