About Foundation Recovery Systems

Foundation Repair, Basement Waterproofing, Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation and Concrete Lifting Experts

History

In 1992, Jeff Martin Sr. founded Foundation Recovery Systems when he noticed gaps in the foundation repair industry. He wanted to find a more efficient way to repair foundations instead of a full replacement. His son, Jeff Martin Jr., Joined the business in 2007, and by 2010, business had skyrocketed due to a year-long drought. In 2018, FRS partnered with Groundworks, the nation’s leading and fastest-growing foundation and water management solutions company and immediately expanded their service coverage. FRS is a 2022 St. Louis Top Workplace winner and A+ BBB accredited business. Their nearly 400 employees and 30 years of experience in the industry have led to thousands of repaired homes.

The reason for the 5 star review is for the professionalism and kindness shown from Shae and Hayden. Their communication was awesome and there were many times during the project that something could have gone wrong but they always found a way to go the extra mile. The communication in other areas of the business definitely needs improvement but Foundation Recovery Systems is lucky to have Shae and Hayden.

Chris and Hunter are perfectionist in their craft. When faced with difficulties, their persistence to get it right for their customer, proved fruitful; providing great results in raising our sidewalk and driveway.Brandon and Will are two hard working guys and total professional gentlemen. We couldn't be more happy with the end result provided. After a groulling day of digging, jack hammering, then digging, digging and more digging these two do not know the word quit. Amazing job from start to finish.Jared…cannot forget the guy who started this process. He helped to make a dreaded task, seamless and effortless for us. From the estimate process, financing, straight to set up date for the work completion. Jared's knowledgeable, friendly and approachable personality was a joy to work with.

This company was fantastic! From the very beginning Adam took his time and walked us through every detail and showed us what needed to be repaired. He was patient, honest, informative, and professional. The crew that did our work came out fast and when they were done cleaned up everything that was taken apart. The communication with this company is the best I’ve ever dealt with. Every single person I talked with through all stages of our project was so courteous and professional. I cannot recommend this company enough. I am so impressed with them especially nowadays when good honest work is hard to come by. An outstanding company!

I have never given a review before, but after hiring Foundation Recovery Systems to rise my garage floor I was highly motivated to do so.The process started with Travis who came out to look at my garage floor and give me an assessment and quote. Travis is very friendly, professional, and educated me on my different options to fix my problem. After discussing my options with Travis I decided to purchase a poly-lift for my garage floor. Foundation Recovery's bid came in the middle of the 3 bids that I received, but I chose them because their warranty far exceeded the other 2 contractors, 5 years vs 2 years. But I also chose them because of Travis, just like working with him.On Dec 1st, Jeremiah and Jake came out to do the lift. They showed up on time and where also very friendly and professional. We discussed a few of my concerns and then they got to work. Took them about 3 hours to complete the work and afterwards they informed me of 2 other issues to keep an eye on, no footings under my garage posts and a foundation wall that may be moving. They also explained to me how to monitor both situations.Last thing, when Travis gave me the bid, he explained that the bid was good no matter how much material use. The other 2 contractors both stated that there would be additional fees if they exceed the amount of poly they estimated. I am so glad the I went with Foundation Recovery Systems, because Jeremiah & Jake reported to me when they finished that they used a lot more poly then they anticipated.Needless to say, if I ever need any sort of foundation work in the future I will be calling Foundation Recovery Systems. They not only met my expectations, they exceeded them. Thank you, guys!

FRS did a super job, taking only two days to excavate, drive pilings and backfill/concrete. Chris Meyer, Brandon Saunders and Brayden VanCleve worked tirelessly to get the foundation repair completed, even though the concrete floor was really tough. We’re glad to have this finished so that we can progress to some needed drywall and door fixes. Thanks, FRS!

From start to finish I enjoyed my experience with Foundation Recovery Systems. Tommy Tuck was the CFI who put the project together he was very professional and set the expectation accordingly. Tyler Bannister was the foreman on the project and he was very nice and professional they exceeded my expectations and would highly refer them to any of my friends or family. Will definitely use them again for future foundation needs.
