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.
