Recently had 9 helical piers installed on a sagging corner of our house. Ian K from AFS Huntsville came out initially and inspected. He spent the necessary time to diagnose the issue (even found an additional crack in the brick facade that I hadn't seen w/ other contractors having already given me quotes for the work). AFS was a slight premium compared to other quotes, but Ian K's thoroughness and overall professionalism made it an easy call to go with AFS. Once work started, Richard W gave a quick overview of what to expect and then they (Richard, Devante M, Tyler P, Nicholas L) got to work. They quickly discovered that the builder of my house decided to dump all the excess remaining concrete after pouring our foundation... behind the footer on the sagging corner of our house. What would have been a 1 day job turned into a 3 and 1/2 day job. I do not fault AFS for this. There was no reason they should have suspected such an insane amount of additional concrete in the corner. I do APPLAUD the crew's diligence and dedication to getting the job done as quickly as possible. Given the type of work (chipping away at massive amounts of excess concrete along the footer of the house), we could tell they were working. And they worked non-stop (during work hours) for 2 and 1/2 days preparing the final 3 of 9 pier attachment points. Once they had all the piers installed and corrected the slight sag, they cleaned everything up and left the areas of the yard in good condition. Richard kept me well informed through the entire process of installing the piers, and I think demonstrated exceptional professionalism and subject matter expertise. Bravo Zulu to him and his crew. I would definitely recommend AFS (especially Ian, Richard, Devante, Tyler, and Nicholas) for foundation repairs. They do a thorough assessment and work hard to get the job done right.
