To future clients,
We knew our house had foundation problems, but did not know to what extent. We got three bids on repair of our foundation. One of them was Chuck at Accu-lift foundation. He was referred to us from a friend of the family who was an engineer and had spent several years working with him. I told Chuck I wanted to write this letter of reference. He did not ask me to. We felt that Chuck spent the most time assessing the damages by measuring in detail both inside and outside the house. He explained the process and answer on numerous questions. We had researched this in depth to make sure we made the right choice. He was honest, knowledgeable and did not try to tell us we needed more piers than we really did. There was no hard sell; it was such a refreshing change to have someone so competent, especially with such an important repair.
He started the work and it was completed within four days. We needed several piers and although the outside was disrupted, we felt like it was minimal for the amount of work that needed to be done. He was on the job constantly, even when the men were digging and he probably did not have to be there. He answered any questions we had during the process.We would recommend him without a doubt. As any homeowner knows, there are so many people out there that don't do jobs correctly or overcharge you, that when you find someone good you want others to know.
I would be willing to talk with anyone who is thinking about using Accu lift foundation in the future. We were very pleased. K.J. Dallas Tx
Accu-lift did our foundation last summer. During the time they were working, my husband went into the hospital, but they continued to do an awesome job... cleaned up thoroughly, worked steadily, there were a couple of young 20s guys who were most respectful and helpful when I needed help with heavy items, the owner, Chuck Kralemann, was on site every day all day working and he even came back after they were finished to redo my fence gate so that was level with the house and work properly. Couldn't be more happy with them. G.R. Plano Tx
Chuck and his team repaired the foundation on the front side of my house. They installed piers inside and outside of my house.
When I started this process, I called six companies that I found on Angie's list. I received six bids, and each of them used slightly different materials and were going to approach the work differently. In addition to variance and approach, there was roughly a $4000 difference in price with each contractor. Because I was confused as to which company to use, which materials would be best etc. I decided to get a structural engineer to give me a survey. The structural engineer's recommendation was the closest to the bid Chuck at Accu lift had given me and Chuck used the exact material the engineer felt was best in the market. So that sealed the deal for me, however, from the beginning I had a great feeling about Chuck. He was very professional and he took great time in answering all of my questions and explaining how the work would be done. He was also the only one who didn't try to oversell me. Others told me to get a plumber to identify plumbing lines. When I asked Chuck about that, he said that typically isn't an issue. He eased my concerns about the process and worked very diligently and finished the job in 2 1/2 days. His work area was always kept clean and his team did a great job of putting everything back the way it was. Everyone was very professional. An added bonus was there was no dust and debris throughout the house – he is one of the few contractors in DFW that uses a special OSHA standard tool that alleviates dust. I highly recommend Accu- lift foundation repair I've already given his card to several friends who also need work
