In 10 years, a corner of our garage floor appears to have settled about 3/4-1" leaving a gap under the garage door seal. An engineer from AF thought they could raise the slab "somewhat," but was careful to say it may be only a small amount. One-half inch would have been helpful in blocking rainwater. We also had a sidewalk that had dropped 3 or 4 inches in a 8-10' long portion. The two men worked hard for over 5 hours. Turned out the garage floor could not be raised any perceptible amount. The sidewalk was raised about 2-3 inches (my guess).

Review by in Oak Ridge, TN
These guys are very professional. They show up when they say they will, their communication about the project and such is fantastic, and the workers do a great job. Due to the rain, my project is only half finished, but so far I am impressed! Only drawback is they are so busy there is a 6 week lag time before they can get to you once you accept their proposal.

Review by in Knoxville, TN
The foundation repair they did was OK as far as I can tell, but the clean up afterward has been a nightmare. The initial work was completed 6 plus months ago yet I still have a hole in the ground at foundation level and worse, a huge pile of concrete and rocks in my back yard. The pieces are so big that I will have to get a jackhammer to break them up so I can move them. They have told me, on multiple occasions, that they were "on our way to your house right now to get that out of your yard", yet I have never seen them. This turned a good experience into a horrible one and I would not recommend this company.

Review by in Greeneville, TN
Representative sold me the product under false pretenses, by claiming dehumidifier had a 5 yr. warranty but really had a 2 yr. warranty. Was also told that dehumidifier would completely rid of any moisture in crawl space, that it would be so dry I would have no insects, mice or snakes. Later was told by installer that I might have to consider a water system to get rid of water standing, mind you, I’ve already spent over $3,000. Called representative about $250.00 rebate online to get credit, he said he would call me back but never heard from him but the installer helped me validate coupon. I haven’t heard anything from this company regarding my satisfaction from the business or to inquire any information about project. I felt as though the project was rushed to colllect remaining balance owed. Just FYI, if you have a lot of moisture in basement or crawl space, might as well go with Master Dry!

Review by in Mosheim, TN
Project: Install or Replace Foundation Drains
The actual work was good. I was never told the ground would settle a foot in places. My contract documents and close out documents did not reference there would be settling. I started building my deck and several of the posts have now sunk and the deck (even though just started building it) has to be replaced. I called Scott Frazier (the #2 guy) and without even asking me what I wanted or what AF could do, he said they were not responsible at all. He even acknowledged they did not communicate this import fact. He said they will in the future. In the meantime, I'm out a couple hundred dollars and the ground is still settling even after their service call. Scott does not practice very good customer service skills being in the position he is in.

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.
