Jeffrey did a thorough inspection and addressed my concerns in regards to my concrete cracking. He was able to schedule me to get it lifted and fixed that same day at a reasonable and fair price. I expect the installation to go well but will update if anything changes.

John Davenport came out and gave an inspection and he was wonderful. He gave a very through and honest inspection and gave us great news that everything was good on our house. He explained everything he saw to me and even gave things I should look for in the future. John was a 10/10 guy and will keep FRS in mind for any future needs. Thanks John!

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.

Marland, Isaiah, Jake, and Martin were on time and very professional. Their work waterproofing my basement was nice looking and performed well. Also, Miguel R and Abbey B did a fantastic job lifting my porch and driveway with foam.

I had MAJOR work done by FRS. Two 1000+ square-foot crawlspaces required full drainage systems, support structuring, wood replacement, and encapsulation. Also had foam injections into very large pool patio to level concrete as well as installing channel drain into said patio. Just thought I'd get that out there to give context to below review.Prompt response to request for information, detailed quotes and analysis, fair and easy financing, they show up and they communicate throughout, they inform you of additional things that come up on the job you may want to address, and if you are concerned about it their crews speak your language and can deal directly with you. Also affordable maintenance plans to ensure their system stays in top shape or to address any unlikely issues. FRS was definitely not the least expensive option, but after dealing with many contractors they were worth every penny for the aforementioned reasons. Time will tell if I need to use any warranties and how they handle that agreement; but after looking at the work product I don't think I will have to.

The crew arrived on time after calling me as they left Springfield. They were friendly and polite and very personable. Their work was neat and clean. Our floor had begun to sag and squeak over the 43 years we’ve lived in the house. Today, the squeak is gone! I have used this company before, and I will most definitely use them again. Thank you Foundation Recovery Systems, and most especially Mason H.,Mason T., and Logan R Sincerely,Beverly M.Harrison, Arkansas

Foundation Recovery Systems quickly resolved my issue with water ingress to my garage by professionally installing a system to redirect the water to keep it from entering my garage. Josh Eaton, Mason Tinney, and Lueck Wright performed the work quickly and politely, and expertly addressed all my concerns. They did a great job cleaning up after the work was concluded, and walked me through what was done.

Nick Mata came to give us a proposal and was very professional. Our animals even enjoyed his company also. Normally they bark a lot at strangers/ company but the animals did not with Nick. I believe that says a lot that alone. Looking forward getting our foundation improved. Thank you so much Nick Mata.
