How has repairing a foundation changed over the years?

Not many years ago, it would cost more to fix a house than it would to tear it down and start all over. Technology advancements certainly have had an impact; now the cost repair is typically much less than you would imagine! Many of the products we use are manufactured by Supportworks, Inc., out of Omaha, Nebraska. The patented system incorporates a steel tube driven into the bedrock to permanently support the part of the foundation it is under. As you can imagine, these products are highly engineered and technical, and they’re all proudly made right here in the USA!

Many of our customers have told me they knew we were the right company to make the repairs to their home after they accepted my invitation to check us out, as you should when hiring any contractor.

Here are just some of our customer’s comments about their experience with Foundation Repair:

Our main concern is the customer’s concern.

We work in a black-and-white industry that allows us to eliminate the grey area of the client/contractor relationship. In most cases, we will provide a report on the condition of the foundation issue, exactly how we can fix it, and exactly what it will cost on the day of the evaluation. With a system designed, printed, and delivered on the spot.

We make the foundation repair experience as painless as possible, and it is our goal to make every homeowner have a wonderful one. We see several homeowners weekly and encounter a very diverse mix of emotions. When our Design Techs show up, the homeowner can rest assured that their best interests are in our hearts. It feels great to know we do not create the problems with foundations, we only fix them. It is a true pleasure to see the emotional stress and strain lifted from an individual after their home is permanently supported.


When we permanently support a foundation, we warrant the products and the workmanship for 25 years. Whenever we lift and stabilize concrete slabs we provide a warranty for that as well. Our warranties are transferable to the new buyer/buyers for the life of the warranty. This adds significant value to the home and a great selling point to bring up to a possible buyer. The best part about our warranty program is that the manufacturer of our products will back our warranties as well.

Western Colorado has been so great to us since we started the company. The majority of our business is through referrals. I tell people every day that western Colorado is a very intimate professional setting. Most companies that do not take care of their customers don’t last. Foundation Repair is close to 15 years in business and has seen strong and steady growth since its inception. We specialize on being thorough — talk to our past customers, come in and visit us, and come late in the day so you can meet our crew. I consider it my greatest privilege to work with our team.

We have a motto, “Fix it for good”, and that’s what our job is!
