    I had what I can only describe as perfect experience with Mount Valley. From the second I found a crack forming in the brick veneer under a window, until the job was done, each step was perfect. When I first called, it was fast and easy to get a rep sent over. They called to remind me of the appointment the day before. The rep called me on his way and gave me an ETA. The rep measured and explained the whole process and what would be needed to properly fix. He offered financing and a discount! Once the repair date was set, they called a few days ahead to confirm the day still worked for me. The crew called when they were on the way to give an ETA. Aubrey McJunkin led the crew assisted by Riley McQueen. They explained what they were going to do and got right to it. Aubrey estimated what time they would finish (spoiler alert- he was spot on by 3 minutes, which was probably due to me talking to the crew, haha) they showed great care with my yard by laying down plywood to drive the excavator on. They didn't mess a blade of grass up. They came with everything they needed and fixed the crack so well, I'm not even sure I'll need to re-grout it! Aubrey explained they opened a permit and would need to leave the holes open until the permit inspector comes and then they will send a crew to fill in. Let me tell you, if you are having a foundation issue, you would be a fool not to call Mount Valley. Companies like this don't stay in business as long as they have by doing poor work, they do it by treating their customers like they did with me and earning a review like this.

    Lynn was patient, knowledgeable and comforting with my questions, as this was my first time!! I was very concerned!! We just bought a 40+ year old house that has been severely neglected over the years. We have put a ton of money into this house already!! We realized part of the problems were a flooding issue when it rained. Even a light rain. The kids and animals canâ t go outside to enjoy the new back yard due to having to walk through the swamp to get anywhere. That being said he also allowed my army of humans and animals to put our â paw printsâ into the concrete. Now we have a lifetime with a special memory for our new house!! â ¥ï¸ â ¥ï¸ â ¥ï¸ â ¥ï¸ I will be hiring him again to do more when I can afford to continue his services!! Hope that this will last forever fix my flooding issues! There is a lot that I will need him for in the future. I chose him because he seems to have integrity in his work and his business. I felt that he was the most knowledgeable out of all the people I spoke with. He was not the cheapest, but I believe that he was the right choice for us!!! We will definitely recommend him and use him again for future projects (or issues) in the yard!

    We were in need of multiple projects for outside home repairs. We also wanted ONE contractor if possible to go through for all projects. PBR fit the bill and then some. From Soffit / Fascia repair / replacement, pressure washing - re-painting all work, to a seem-less gutter system install, it has been a great experience to have PBR on the job. From start to finish, we have been overwhelmed with their outstanding experience, knowledge of things that needed to be done, timely cost estimates and an immediate response to all projects and a "Top-Notch" job each and every time. We even ran into a repair that was needed on our roof which was not a problem for PBR. It was an additional cost which was to be expected. It was also more than reasonable. Their repair was exacting to code and saved us from a total roof job. The repair was exceptionally well done. The professionalism, attitude and "Can-Do" response was prompt and can not be over-stated! The ease of working with just ONE contractor for all things was also stress-free. We still have one remaining project on the outside of our home that we are currently awaiting an estimate for, from PBR. Our home was built in 1973 and after all these projects were completed, the house looks like new on the outside thanks to PBR and ALL their hired folks. Each and every one were pleasant, easy to work with and we even had fun while these projects were in works. The beauty and appearance of our home now is remarkable. We have had so many compliments from neighbors, friends etc., who pop by and are very impressed by everything they see. PBR made our dreams come true this year and this contractor can do the same for anyone! Kudos to Steven Thornley, Earl Mason and all the folks tied to PBR. We are extremely happy with all the work they have done and we are assured that any / all work done is outstanding and they stand by it all. If you have a similar job / project (s), then this is your one stop shopping around for a company that will get it right the first time and will last as long as you plan to own your home. Bar none - PBR is it! Sadly, 5-star is all we can give. In our opinion - 10 + if available! Thanks so much to PBR and if you're looking for a project (s) to be done at your home, look no further. PBR is it! Thanks to all again at PBR! Woody & Judy Neilson

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is a foundation in a house?

+

A house’s foundation is always located under the house itself. A foundation is the load-bearing portion of a home and is usually built below ground, though different types are built at different locations under a home. For instance, a basement foundation is built at least eight feet deep into the ground under the house to create living space below the ground level of the home. A crawl space foundation is built under a shallow trench beneath your home—typically between two and five feet deep. A slab foundation, also known as a monolithic or monoslab foundation, simply lays flat against the ground under your home. Pier and beam foundations also rest on the ground, but elevate the home using piers, typically about two feet off the ground.

What are the types of foundations for homes?

+
  • Basement Foundations: Also called a full basement foundation or a daylight basement, a basement foundation is one of the most popular types of foundations. One of the appeals of a basement foundation is that it offers additional living space under the home. A daylight basement typically includes windows to let natural light into the space. This type of foundation allows for homeowners to maximize the footprint of their home by offering a finished living space.
  • Concrete Slab Foundations: Also called a slab, monolithic, or monoslab foundation, this type of foundation is essentially a poured concrete slab that rests on the ground under your home. It’s typically one single piece and is relatively easy and inexpensive to build.
  • Crawlspace Foundations: This type of foundation provides just enough space under a home for a person to crawl around in to access plumbing or wiring, or store equipment such as a furnace.
  • Wood Foundations: These types of foundations are less common, though they were a popular choice in the mid 20th-Century. A wood foundation is typically made of pest and mold-resistant wood, like cedar or redwood. They are easy to install, though they aren’t as long-lasting as concrete foundations. Wood foundations are not ideal for climates that see a lot of rain and snow, as they must be built on very dry soil.
  • Pier and Beam Foundations: These foundations, which are common in coastal areas, use piers and beams to lift a house off the ground. Also known as pier and post or pier and pile foundations, the aim of pier and beam foundations is to support a home that is built on sand or soil that is prone to flooding, erosion, or ground shifts. A structural engineer needs to oversee the building of a pier and beam foundation to ensure its structural integrity.

How much does a foundation repair cost?

+

The typical cost to repair a foundation is between $2,200 and $7,500, though most homeowners pay around $4,800. The price of a foundation repair depends on the extent of damage. Major repairs that require the use of hydraulic piers can cost $10,000 or more, while minor cracks can run as low as $500. Fixing a leaky foundation by sealing it costs between $2,300 and $7,300.

What is the strongest foundation for a house?

+

Concrete foundations that are reinforced with steel plinth and beams are considered to be the strongest type of foundation—especially on lots with loose or muddy soil. This type of foundation uses a reinforced concrete beam built between the wall and the foundation. Homes built in areas that are prone to flooding or earthquakes also benefit from a foundation that contains steel plinth and beams.
