Review by in Laurel, MD
The people over at JES Foundation Repair was able to diagnose and repair the issue I had with a large crack on the side of my garage. They discovered that the crack on two sides was caused by the ground underneath sinking causing the corner to drop. Once they dug up the two sides and saw that the builder of the house had skipped one of the concrete slabs which left no support for the corner of the garage. They were able to resolve the problem by using 6 push piers and added concrete with metal rods to reinforce the structure. The team that did the work (Jose Rodriguez, Henry Ayala and Jesus Baires) has great skill and integrity. I would definitely hire them again to do the job!

We are still dealing with the same water problem as we were 5 yrs ago and it is gotten worse. My husband at 1 time was being ignored by JES every single time he tried calling to get service. We have tried for over 5 years to resolve this amicably. JES swears their system is not faulty, yet can not tell me why their system is failing in our house so badly. Our entire basement that we paid $20k to have finished has to be ripped apart due to water damage and mold. Family heirlooms have been ruined with mold. We have had to throw out so many of our things, our son can not use this space to play in (that is originally why we had the basement finished), and we were sick of it. They are choosing to ignore us, and we have pursuing legal action. Now, instead of just replacing their equipment, a lawyer will be seeking payment for damages and for their legal fees. We have an inspector coming out on 8/21/21 to provide a report that confirms that their drain system was not back filled with rocks like it should have been. We will be taking this to our lawyer Monday morning 8/23/21 and we were going to get what we deserve for our troubles.
Response by JES Foundation Repair: Hello. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The safety of your home is our number one concern and we take your concerns very seriously. If there were others concerns brought to your attention after our Manager spoke with you, please feel free to reach out using the contact information provided by our team. - JES Foundation Repair.

JES technician Marty came out and performed the yearly inspection and maintenance on the sump pump and dehumidifier that JES installed as part of a crawl space encapsulation. Marty has been here before, in fact I request him because he is honest, trustworthy, friendly, professional, and his technical expertise and experience are excellent. He even talked to my next door neighbor about the JES and the work the company does. Marty is a credit to the company he represents, and I hope JES values Marty and the skills he has as a JES team member as much as I do.
Response by JES Foundation Repair: Hello! Thank you so for this stellar review. We're glad he provided you with an excellent service. We will be sure to share your kind words with him! - JES Foundation Repair

Review by Margaret M. in Linden, VA
Project: Waterproof a Basement or Foundation
Would NOT recommend any work from the Manassas Office. This JES office has poor customer service and communication. I have sent emails and requested phone calls, of which they do not return calls, and when they do send emails, it curt and does not answer the situation. The job was to dig around the foundation to reseal the outside of the foundation/basement. JES informed me on the morning of the scheduled work that they needed to push back a day due to weather without checking the forecast for the location of the home which is located 40 from the JES office. When they did show up at the job site, they were not equipped with all the necessary tools. JES cut my waterline (private water utility) and continued to dig up pipe thus causing replacement of 12 feet of water line vice 2 feet of water line, this was a substantial difference in repair cost that I paid. JES originally tried to have me incur all costs but stated that I proved that I was only responsible for the first 2 feet of damaged pipe and the supervisor had the crew continued to dig/damage the rest of the pipe after it was located. The plumber of JES was unavailable, so I located a local plumber who did the repair, being out at my home until 10:00 pm that evening. I paid the emergency fees out of my pocket. JES then cut the water line AGAIN on the following day, even though the water line was visible, and the area should have been dug by hand and not with mechanized equipment. The foreman did not inform me of this damage, I only learned of the water being shut off when I tried to use my sink. JES could not locate a plumber to do the second repairs therefore I had to obtain my plumber, who was at the house until 11:00 pm fixing the problem. Again, I had to pay out of pocket. When addressing this to JES, they did remove the fee for both days (minus the $250) but stated *This was a courtesy from us to you.* Even though the fault was JES and not mine once the pipe was visibly located. Once the job was finished, within a week the sealant on the foundation began to peal and JES had to return to *repair* and reseal at ground level. The work was shoddy, JES left the job site looking like a new construction site, as the finished work was minimal with seed and straw but no grading, therefore my yard was a muddy mess.
Response by JES Foundation Repair: Hello. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We are truly sorry for what occurred during the project. We will have a manager reach out to you to get this situation resolved. So we have the correct contact information, would you be able to email us your best phone number to [email protected]
