Why AFS Engineering?
The AFS engineering department provides the highest quality service possible from a foundation repair company. Not many companies in this industry have their own engineering department. Because AFS does, we can bring a tremendous amount of experience and technical knowledge to bear on a foundation repair. Whether it’s a historic building, a house that’s been added onto, a commercial property, or anything in between, AFS can provide the best possible service, to our customers and to our inspectors, to make sure the diagnosis and the repair are right for the problem at hand.
We accomplish this through frequent technical training – not only with our own professional development, but with our inspectors as well. We meet with our inspectors and discuss technical issues such as: how to diagnose a repair, basic engineering principles, common construction practices, etc. We want our inspectors to be the best in the game and if we can help with that, then we will.
We also achieve a level of excellence by going out in the field and working with our customers. AFS engineering works with property owners in the field when repairs are complicated or the building we’re working with requires engineering expertise. There have been many structures that we have repaired that others couldn’t. We can creatively design engineered repair plans when others companies simply can’t. Not only do we work with homeowners, but we also work with other contractors that may come in after us, like masons, to make sure that everything is buttoned up and looking like new.
We also champion transparency by working with local municipalities to make sure every I is dotted and t is crossed. We want to make sure everyone is on the same page with our repair plans. We offer signed and sealed permit drawings where they are necessary for both the local officials as well as the property owner.
- We offer the highest level of service to our customers through training and boots on the ground service.
- We can provide creative and transparent repair plans that meets with every approval.
- And, we offer peace of mind in knowing that, with AFS, the problem is fixed – for good.
