Foundation Recovery Systems, founded in 1992, is a subsidiary of Groundworks, a family of companies that offers superior, proven solutions for your foundation repair, structural repair, crawl space encapsulation, dehumidification, and concrete leveling needs. They currently maintain offices in Kansas City, Moberly, Springfield, and St Louis. Foundation Recovery Systems is a recognized accredited member of the Better Business Bureau and devotes its years of experience, industry knowledge and specialized training to help customers protect their homes or commercial buildings from water damage, concrete sinking, and foundation failure.  

Quacker's Waterproofing & Basement Repair has been family owned and operated since 2001. No subcontractors or commissioned sales people are used. Cost is determined by the job. Due to our experience installing waterproofing systems, fixing foundations as well as our Radon testing and mitigation experience gives us the skill sets to install Radon resistance waterproofing systems. Most of our competitors don't have this combination of skill sets there before may waterproofing systems that are installed can potentially contribute to elevated radon levels in their customer's home. We can solve most foundation/basement problems as well as improve our clients indoor air quality which is a very high priority for us. It is our commitment and responsibility to insure our customers have healthy homes and we are do nothing to compromise that. We are not tied to or required to use any propriety systems or products that many companies are vested in. We use the systems and products that we feel provide the best solution for our client's problem. For customers who want a more finished look than a normal crack injection, we offer a special surface seal that can be removed from the surface of the wall after a crack is injected leaving only the repaired crack line visible. We can also paint the basement walls to make both crack repairs and carbon fiber repairs much less visible. In addition to radon testing and mitigation we really are positioned to be a one stop shop. There are several brand name products and systems we use on a regular basis. "Fortress Stabilization" carbon fiber wall stabilization products, "Stabilizer" top and bottom adjustable I-beam brackets used with vertical I-beams for wall stabilization, and "Kryton" crystalline waterproofing products used when crack injection and other waterproofing methods will not be effective, We also use "RadonAway" radon mitigation fans for all of our radon mitigation system installation. Due to our experience repairing foundation wall cracks many times we can provide an accurate repair price over the phone with just a good discription from the client or a clear picture of the crack.

We contracted this company to install a basement waterproofing system which included a French drain tile system, sump pump, and battery backup sump pump. We had good recommendations of this company from a couple of my co-workers that had basement work done on their houses. We initially got a work completetion timeframe of three days. From the get go we had problems with this company not showing up...

Do not hire Solutions Foundation and Waterproofing under any circumstance. We initially hired Solutions Foundation and Waterproofing (SF&W) to install a drain tile system in our basement. They had a good rating with the BBB, and a reference checked out. Unfortunately, the scope of the project quickly increased, and along with that so did our problems with the company. The short story is that they ...

It was awful. The owner was very rude and disrespectful to me. The workers were nice, polite, and friendly but the quality of the work just wasn't up to par. They ground down too far on the foundation so I am going to have to have more work done. They left a huge mess in my basement. There was one good thing that happened: They told me the dust was going to be at a minimum. I had just cleaned my h...

Our basement was leaking so we hired a structural engineer who recommended some companies to fix it. I checked out the reports for those companies on Angie’s List and Solutions didn't have a good grade but I decided to get an estimate from them anyway. They gave me estimates that were about the same. The owners were both nice and professional. I told Solutions that the other company’s bid was cheaper so I was going with them but then he offered to give me $4000 off. I jumped at the chance to save money even though they have some not-so-great grades on Angie’s List.

I had a bad experience with them. I had signed the contract without understanding the fine print. He had not given me time to renege on it and I was charged a lot to have two holes dug by two people. I had to pay that money as he had already started work by then. It was for pier work and the money did not get reimbursed. He also did not reimburse me for the concrete, and said that too was included...

Asked us to underpin pier a portion of her garage. we submitted a proposal for 4 piers for 3,800.00. When the excavation was complete we discovered the structure didn't have a proper footing to install the piers...(NO FOOTING = SETTLEMENT) It is clearly stated in the contract that if the structure has improper footings, Solutions will have to create footings. If the customer doesn't wish to contin...

He tore up the sidewalk and patio. When he repaired the holes for the foundation, he made a complete mess. Many of the foundation holes keep sinking. He tried to repair them, but they kept sinking. I am not happy with the service he delivered.

This is CLEARLY STATED in the contract that Solutions is not responsible for outside concrete, plantings, landscaping, appliances etc. We are a structural repair contractor not landscapers or HVAC the concrete was replaced @ an ad...
