The workers really got down to business and got the whole project done in a day and a half! Carlos Lopez, the head of the group that was there was very knowledgeable. I asked him about other problems with my house. He seemed knowledgeable about the solutions for them and recommended a specialist as well. Great job!

Had follow-up questions/issues -- they NEVER returned my calls.
Response by Foundation 1: We discontinued offering mudjacking last fall and refer all leads for this service to another company. I am sorry for your frustration and lack of customer service on their end. If you'd like to give me a call at our office, 816-682-8440, I can try to help you.

Review by in Olathe, KS
I would recommend Foundation 1 without reservation. Dave, Gary, Thom and their crew did an outstanding job, under somewhat difficult circumstances. Only a couple of hours after a record-breaking 4-inch rain, they arrived per their appointment to repair two below-grade rooms which have had increasing leaks. They removed wall paneling and installed steel beams to straighten the walls, which were being pushed in by the heavy, wet clay soil from outside. They also dug down 7 feet outside to waterproof the walls and install new drains. They also installed supports to keep the hill from sliding down further toward the house. Their foreman, Billy, did an outstanding job directing his crew and is to be commended for his attention to detail. His crew arrived on time each day and cleaned up before leaving. I was pleased that he made sure his crew stayed hydrated during the hot and humid weather. He made sure we understood what the job entailed. Foundation 1 was selected from four companies interviewed and the tipping point was their suggestion to use a French drain already on the site instead of adding another sump pump. The job was estimated to take four days to complete and was done in three and one-half days, in spite of heat, humidity, and the heavy, wet clay that passes for soil in Johnson County. Total cost did not exceed the estimate, as we experienced with "hidden"charges in the small print" from a company we recently used to replace an aging and broken septic system. They are a Five-Star Company, Plus!

They were very professional and left the worksite clean. They even waited out a thunderstorm in their truck for an hour before they were able to start the job

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.



NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
