Review by in Noblesville, IN
Ok my previous review was a little harsh. After contacting IFS Mr Ayres the GM came out and we went over the job and went into the crawl space inspected the results and discovered I have other issues. He explained what the problem and was no related to the foundation. He was very knowledgeable and courteous. I am satisfied with the results and would recommend IFS and would use them again.
Response by Indiana Foundation Service: Hello Daryl, Thank you so much for your review. We are happy that Mr. Ayres was able to visit your home and give you a peace of mind with the concerns you were having. We thank you for taking time out of your day to share this experience and are glad that you are happy. Thank you, Brianna TeamIndiana

I do not think the job was done properly. I contacted the sales rep who said he would contact the office and they would send someone out to look at it. I never heard from them again.
Response by Indiana Foundation Service: Hello Jack, We are sorry that you have not heard back from anyone regarding the work that was done to your home. I have passed this information to an upper management team member and you will be hearing from a team member soon. Once again, we are so sorry. Thank you, Brianna TeamIndiana

Received and excepted estimate of my repair on my driveway 3/12/2018 and gave my 20% deposit. Set up repair on 5/1/2018. Contacted by Lisa of Indiana Foundation and was advised equipment failure and rescheduled for 5/2/2018. Contacted again and was advised needed to reschedule until 5/3/2018. Contacted again was advised could not work in rain had to reschedule until 5/7/2018 between 2:00 pm and 3:00 pm. Driver call me and advised could not make it until 5:30 due to equipment failure. Finally showed up 5:30 pm on 5/7/2018. After 30 min of trying to get his equipment to work was unable to get going and advised me would have to reschedule again. I advised them I had two other contractors and I have had to reschedule those jobs because I was having to work around their rescheduling and could no longer deal with his company due to unprofessional and unreliable work. Also needed someone of company to contact me in regards to returning my down payment. It is now 11:00 AM 5/8/2018 and no one from Indiana Foundation has contacted me. I would think twice about contracting this company for any type of work.
Response by Indiana Foundation Service: Hello Michael, We are sorry that you have had a less than positive experience with Indiana Foundation Service. We strive to make sure that our customers are provided with the best service and solutions. Your concerns are not being taken lightly and we have passed them to our upper management team.

Review by in Indianapolis, IN
Definitely not a complete failure, but even 1 1/2 stars may be generous. We hired IFS to do joist repair, sill plate removal and repair, and install 85 ft of I beams to help stabilize a house we recently bought in Indianapolis. I would rate the quality of the work that was done by the actual laborers 2 stars. Working down there is not fun nor easy and and they went beyond what the quoted job was on a few instances, but they also showed up late and left early the second day and left the hatch to our crawl space open and a thunderstorm rolled through that evening sending more water into our crawlspace! My main problem with IFS is their management and job bidding process. They would receive a less than one star rating. I spoke with the foreman that was at our house almost everyday, the guy down in the trenches, and he seemed quite puzzled at how our bid was compiled. As I mentioned before they had to do extra joist repair just to be able to complete the I beam runs. There was also discrepancy as to which sill plate needed repaired and to where the I beam runs were needed. After the work was completed I found a bid we had received from another contractor that included much more sill plate and joist repair work that was about half the cost of IFS. We were assured by the employee who came out to make the bid that the I beams would bring our floor back to level, the informational pamphlets he gave us said the same thing, yet when the workers were here they gave the impression that the beams were not to lift and return to level but only to stabilize and stop any further sinking. After the work was completed the floors were not level. It is my belief after going through the process of working with IFS and reading other online reviews that the employee who came out to do the bid works on commission and that I beam work was quoted at the max and joist/sill plate work was under quoted. I believe this was to increase this employees profit, the I beam work was probably 70% of the cost of the total bid, and less out of concern for us the homeowners. This commission based model may work fine for car sales or cell phones but is in my opinion unacceptable in the building trades, you end up with a complete disconnect between the person quoting a job and the actual people doing the work. (The contractor who did our complete roof teardown and rebuild was there for the bid and the complete roof demolition and rebuild process.) This also highlights another managerial problem that this creates, our job was quoted to take three days, the first day only the foreman and a general laborer showed up, the said they were a man down, usually a three man team. The second day the foreman didn't show,(absences occur, I understand)and it was obvious the two guys that did show were general laborers and didn't know how to properly execute the job at hand, they left early and they were also the ones who left the hatch down in the crawl space the night of the storm. All in all i think it took 6 or 7 days to complete the work. Truthfully I feel bad for the employees of IFS as they go out there and do the really backbreaking work and it seems to be negated by poor management. Maybe it's just buyers remorse but I don't feel the job IFS did was worth the price of a new car.

Review by in Indianapolis, IN
I initiated my concrete foundation repair project (installation of piers on the outside) around Mar 2017 with Indiana Foundation. On the 1st repair visit (May 17, 2017) the tech determined a different repair was needed; slab jacking on the concert floor on the inside. Second appointment rescheduled for July 25, 2017; 2 hours later-no show. Called the company and was told the equipment was broken. Third repair appointment is scheduled for Nov 24, 2017. This delayed to repair my concrete slab has greatly impacted my renovation project. Each time my appointment was rescheduled, I requested a callback if an earlier appointment became available; this never happen. I called Acculevel who completed the concrete slab repairs (internal piers, slab jacking and cracks) yesterday. I cancelled my appointment with Indiana Foundation and requested my down payment refund. I was told the refund request has to go to the corporate office first for approval. Refund may take several weeks.
