We hired AFS to stabilize our outdoor fireplace that was falling backwards due to the soft ground giving way. Bailey C and Denzel Q were extremely professional and did an amazing job. They took the time to explain exactly what they were going to do and showed us their progress along the way. They were extremely respectful and took great care to not disturb our yard. We are very pleased with their work. Sorry I don’t have any before pictures but it was leaning against the fence before the fixed it.

Amazing service and follow up. Jake, who came to our home to estimate our project, took the time to explain what he felt needed to be done. Jake didn't oversell and was honest from the beginning. Jackson and Micah did a great job on one project. Josh knocked the other project out of the park. Caring and professional led to an outstanding quality job done on two seperate jobs for us by the AFS Team. Thank you AFS!
