    Everything went as explained, diagramed, and promised by our System Design Specialist, Mr. Nicolas Hruska. We initially contacted just the top two Foundation Repair Experts listed on Angie's List because we can't afford to have our home repaired by anyone who lacks the proper credentials, staff, tools, training, techniques, supplies, 25 year transferrable warranty, and the hands on experience to deliver all services as promised. We are extremely pleased with the final results to take back our homes basement from poor workmanship done by the original builder and owner of our home back in 1979 We purchased the home in 2001 and unknown to us the foundation had been placed on top of clay based sub-soil which was an acceptable building practice back in 1979. Today's building codes prohibit this careless and costly practice of home site preparation for the homeowner. A word to the wise, do your home work first and then protect the biggest asset that most Americans have, their home. Respectfully, Kenny L. Hutcheson, CMSgt, USAF/USN, Ret. Indianola, Iow

    My basement got flooded couple of years ago due to heavy rains over july 4th weekend. It’s due to my home seller’s poor landscaping work. Bill worked on this project in April 2020, and fixed this grading issue around my window well. He also did a really nice landscaping work around it, installed drain tail, catch basins, grounded gutters, and adjusted grading to improve drainage, reseeded the area. Bill and his crew is very professional and they finished the project couple of days early. He kept us in the loop throughout the project, answered lot of questions and made this expensive project less stressful. I been wanting to see how his grading project is going to work during heavy rains. Finally yesterday evening we got some heavy rains in Ankeny and I could able see the project in action. My sump pump hardly ran during the rain. I didn’t see any rain water coming into my window well. Water was nicely flowed into the drain tail and towards street. I am happy and satisfied with Bill’s work. Bill and his crew is very thorough, professional and I would highly recommend them

    I am very impressed with my service. We are remodeling a home for my parents and needed to ensure the basement wouldn't take on water. Chris is very knowledgeable and dedicated. He and his crew are hard-working and detail-oriented, it is obvious they take pride in a job well done! I highly recommend this company for all your concrete needs

    From the initial meeting all the way through installation, I cannot say enough about the quality and professionalism of this company. They were on time, on budget, clean and very professional.

    Iowa Foundation Repair, Winterset, is definitely the best in the business. Justin Porter lazer measured the basement walls and determined exactly how much they had moved over the years. After checking the cracks in the block walls, he proposed anchoring the walls without installing sump pumps. Three other companies quoted me sump pumps which included jack-hammering the basement floor. Justin's crew also installed egress windows and did a great job on those too. This was no easy job. Even though the crew had to dig in the front yard to install the anchors, when they left there was no indication they had even been there. Wow. In and out in one day. Since then no leaks even during the worst of rains. Can't say enough good about Justin and his professional crew. These guys are the best

    They installed this system over two days in September of 2017. It was amazing to watch these professionals work. On the first day, four men broke up and removed the concrete. Then they dug up the dirt and removed it bucket by bucket. They installed the drainage system and sump pump. By the time they were done, they had completely filled a dump truck with the dirt and concrete that was removed bucket by bucket. The four were all very courthouse and hard working. They never stopped. They cleaned up their work so that the basement was ready the next day for the cement crew. The second day the cement crew came and in a few hours completely sealed the drainage tunnel. It looked great. This crew was exactly like the first crew: courteous and very hard working. I cannot say enough about the job they did. The proof of the quality of their work will come next spring but I could not have been happier with the work they performed for me

    Gene was responsive and professional. I really appreciated that he clearly explained what he observed and offered suggestions that I might do to correct some things. I asked him if he could also recommend the things that need immediate attention and the things that could wait. His estimate included exactly what I asked for. My situation changed, and I'm unable to pursue a plan at this time. I am definitely interested is working with him in the future

    The estimator we worked with at Iowa Foundation was one of the least sales-pitchy of the bunch, which was great. He had just as much (even more) knowledge than the other estimators that came out. He took accurate measurements, explained everything that could be affecting us, and explained exactly how and why they were going to repair our foundation. He also detailed other methods of repairing it and why they would or would not be well suited for our home. The crew was booked out for a month or so and weather pushed our appointment back a couple days, but the schedulers were courteous and reasonable. Once the crew arrived, we talked through the work they'd be doing, and even made a change about where the sump pump was to be placed. They were super professional, made sure I understood everything happening, prepped the space and got to work. In a single day, their crew jackhammered the flooring out along 2 walls, water proofed them both, installed a sump pump, anchored the bowing wall, and re-poured the floors. They did all of this with virtually no dust or damage to the yard, which blew my mind

    They were prompt. They did the whole process in one day. They had an excellent team that came in. They had a point person that was there to explain what they were doing and to address and questions that I had. I was curious to go down and see what was going on and the welcomed me down there. They discovered that I didn't have concrete block, that I had kind of like a brick block on my foundation because it's an older home. He explained that they couldn't drill holes around the perimeter like they normally do because of what I had. He said that the hole in the block are sideways so it would still drain. It would just be a little bit slower. He explained that whole process to me. When they left they cleaned up their mess inside and out. They covered everything in plastic to reduce the dust on my things. When they left everything was clean. He took me downstairs and explained the sump pump and the back up, and what I need to do to keep it maintained. I was given a packet of information about my system. The home office sent me a radon testing packet to use and an evaluation to check and make sure I was pleased with their service. The gal that I talked to before and after was always there to address any questions to help me decide if I should get the battery back up, and the pros and cons. They were very flexible as far as the day they could come do it. They called before hand and let me know when they were going to be here and they were on time. I was very fortunate. I don't have any reason why I wouldn't recommend them
