We were extremely pleased with the professional and courteous work ethic of the entire VFS team . Job well done!
We had the chimney leaning out away from house. vfs performed repair and it looks great. from start to finish they were exceptional.
Virginia Foundation Solutions did excellent work repairing the foundation on our house. They quickly repaired the foundation and did a great job cleaning up the site afterward.
Danny and his team of knowledgable workers installed a perimeter drain and sump pump under my house in just one day! They were timely, professional, and courteous. VFS worked with me on the placement and design so that I felt comfortable with the operation and happy with the installation. I think VFS has outstanding customer service and truly has your home safety as their top priority. Their prices are competitive and the peace of mind that comes with taking care of water issues is priceless. I would HIGHLY recommend them.
I had a foundation problem; cracks in the ceiling, doors sticking, soft bouncy floors, the entire house was settling. I called Virginia Foundation Solutions; the technician was professional, conducted a thorough investigation of the issues; assisted me with quick/easy financing. During the actual repairs, the associates were on time, professional, worked diligently and completed the work in a timely fashion (3 days). All of my issues are resolved and when I walk through my home , I can see and feel the difference! I would definitely recommend their services and rate as very positive!
VFS came to our house and did an exceptional job from Andrew Black to Danny Farris. Their team did the job quicker than their estimated time frame and it looked like no one was there. I was impressed with their professionalism and their timeliness. After everything was done Danny Farris called to make sure how I felt about everything from start to finish. I will say they earned a 5 star due to their commitment to my needs and my well being of my family. I will recommend them to anyone cause of their commitment to helping families live in their homes and all being safe.
From start to finish Virginia Foundation team did a wonderful job. Our crawl space was so short they had to do the work from the top. They cut open our floors in our Dining area and installed 7 support piers. Each day they left my house so thoroughly clean that if you didn't know that work was being done you wouldn't of known. Thank you for a fantastic job. I will definitely recommend them to anyone who has foundation needs.
Excellent contractor who won't try to overcharge for work. Needed short-notice crawlspace inspection. Andrew was able to come out the same day after finishing another job early. Very fast response, very honest report. Strongly recommend!
I thought I had a serious problem when my windows cracked and the kitchen granite counter top separated where two pieces were joined. ****** came out to the house and after inspecting the premise advised me that I had nothing to worry about as the house was not sinking. I very much appreciate the integrity of this gentleman. Another contractor could have said I had a major problem and charged me thousands to fix it. As it was, ***** did not charge for his service and he came all the way to Williamsburg from Virginia Beach, a good hour drive at best. I highly recommend ****** ****** and Virginia Foundation Solutions for their knowledge and honesty.
I was very impressed. They arrived on time, were polite, did the job, left the basement cleaner then they found it and did great quality work to boot! I'd bring them back to do work for me anytime.
A+ work all around! Professional team that communicates to both the client and to each other to get the job done in a timely and proficient manner. After having quartz installed on my kitchen counters, we needed some extra support under the kitchen floor. I contacted several contractors to come out and each one had their own sales pitch and some started talking about things that didn't even pertain to the job at hand. That was until I had VFS out. Not only did they take their time to explain my options, they listened to me and what I was looking for. Danny, the owner, took the time to go over any questions and concerns that I had to ensure I was getting the service I wanted. Josh, his supervisor, is very knowledgeable in all aspects of the work and when he came out, he did not rush or sales pitch in any way. Josh took the time to explain everything to me while giving good sound advice. I'm one of those customers who will google and ask questions to make sure the work I am getting done is done right and I have to say that VFS has not only met my expectations, they have gone above and beyond! I recently had them back out to put piers under my house in an area that needed some leveling and once again, I was a happy customer with excellent results. I would highly recommend VFS!
Work has not been started yet, but we are impressed with the quick responses we have received from the owner, Danny Farris.
It is never good news when you are told that your foundation needs to be repaired. We had contacted one of the larger companies initially, but the representative never responded to us as promised.
Danny walked around our house and pointed out the areas that needed to be repaired. Unless you are dealing with foundation repair, very few of us are aware of how to fix it. Danny took the time to explain how push piers work and what we could expect to get the repairs done.
Throughout the process, I had many questions. Every time I called VFS, the owner called back within 15 minutes (usually less than that) and answered my questions. I have learned a lot about foundation repairs.
The piers are very expensive, and my husband and I were having a difficult time paying for the entire job to be done without financing.
Danny offered to work with us so that we could get the entire project completed, not just part of it. We are looking forward to a permanent solution to the problems caused by shrink-swell soil, with the peace of mind that VFS warranties the piers for a lifetime. If we ever decide to sell our home, the warranty will be transferred to the new owners.
I have ready many good reviews about Virginia Foundation Solutions and look forward to having them start the job in February.
I had extensive water damage under kitchen floor and bathroom. Danny and Josh were instrumental ensuring my work was completed to my satisfaction. They had gone above and beyond what was required to ensure the final product was one that would meet my standards. As they were working on my current projects, I was getting ready for an encapsulation job to commence. Bay Crawlspace was scheduled to perform the job; however, their management was substandard which led to a disagreement that canceled my contract. Virginia Foundation stepped up and ensure they were able to fit me into their schedule. Again, the work was magnificent as they were able to handle both jobs. I would hire them again in a minute and just wanted to say great job to Danny, Josh and the crew for doing an outstanding job.
Quick back story...Had horizontal brick cracking on front of house and periodical flooding into our den (converted from garage by previous owner). The flooding came from under house because yard has poor drainage and some areas slope towards house. BTW, Brick ranch on a crawl space. Crack had grown about an inch wider in 15 years...time to fix!
I had 2 estimates from other companies and was ready to pull the trigger with the "big name" company when my wife handed me a flyer for VFS from value pak! I did some research and was initially impressed, so I gave them a call. We are so glad we did!
I was greeted by Carolyn on the phone and was impressed at how quickly she set me up with a free estimate appointment. A couple days later, Ted showed up for the estimate. Right away, I was put at ease by his friendly professionalism. He was incredibly patient and happily answered every question I had. After a thorough inspection, he came up with a similar solution to the "big name" company. The BIG difference was all of the details he was telling me that they would do.
That very night, I received an email from Ted and was shocked to see it was the estimate and it was right in line with the other company with one HUGE difference...The scope of work was so detailed, right down to moving and replacing plants if needed! Listen up folks, this is how an estimate should be done. The other company only listed the big stuff(jacks, pump, pipe) that's it. Ted even put in there that they would replace my old rusty crawl space entry door with a nice new plastic one! VFS also does not charge extra beyond a certain depth like others do.
I could not pick up the phone fast enough to accept the estimate. The next day everything was set up and the job was scheduled in about 6 weeks.
The crew arrived right on time, including Josh (project manager) and Tiger (foreman). They sprang right into action like a well oiled machine. They thoroughly cleaned up everyday and were always willing to answer questions or just chat for a minute. After 3 days the job was complete we could not be happier.
Do yourself a favor and give these folks a chance. You will be glad you did.
Thank you VFS...Bravo Zulu!
I received a referral to VFS from a friend. My consultation with Josh Speckhart was excellent. Mr. Speckhart was professional and knowledgeable. The work was done in a timely fashion. I would recommend VFS to anyone.
I had water seep into my heating ducts under a slab following hurricane Matthew. I solicited bids on repairs from several companies. All companies suggested the same type repair. Foundations Solutions ( Danny) was the low bid. I was leery at his low bid. However his solutions, material to be used was the same as other suggested. With a 30% down payment, work began on Nov-7-16. They arrived on time and work started immediately. A ditch was dug around the foundation. It was the pressure washed and a sealant applied when dry to the foundation. A plastic type fabric was place then it was put into the ditch and up to the building side. Drainage pipe was laid int the ditch to carry rain water to the street gutter. The ditch was then filled with stone. Work was completed on Nov-8-16. The crew did a through clean up and where polite and courteous at all times. I highly recommend this company for any one looking for foundation repair of any sort.
Thanks Virginia Foundation Solutions.
I was very satisfied with their work. When there was a minor issue that I was unhappy with, they came out promptly and fixed the problem. The guys were very friendly professional and courteous. I would recommend them.
VFS did a great job repairing my floor,including beam and joists. The crew was very professional and maintained a very clean work site. They completed the work on time and budget and went above and beyond closing off a door opening when the replacement door was not delivered by another company. I would definitely recommend them
Excellent service and highest quality materials. We contracted VFS to install their Crawl Space Encapsulation System in our home, with fantastic results. Danny provided a detailed and competitive quote, and the VFS team executed the installation flawlessly. We are very pleased and thankful to have contracted VFS for our crawl space project. We most highly recommend VFS.
VFS repaired some deteriorated blocks, removed and reinstalled a sidewalk, and installed a new discharge for a downspout to redirect any rain along with a bubbler pot. It was all down on time and within the budget. Well done VFS! Thanks.
Installed 13 jacks and either new or replacement beams to correct sinking floor or counter top and cracked plaster.
They showed up when promised, worked diligently and kept job site clean. Kept us informed as to the status daily. The job stayed on budget and was more than $5,000 under the quote from another foundation repair company. Job was finished ahead of promised schedule. I would use them again.
The new house we bought is on a steep hill (21 foot drop) down to a tidal creek. The house has been sliding/sinking for years and has a several inch drop from the front of the house to the rear. There were large cracks in the brickwork, and the inside floor is slanted.
We asked many different companies for quotes to fix the problem and many companies would not even give us a quote, saying that they would not be able to get their machines through the narrow and steep side yard to do the work. In the end only 3 companies gave us quotes.
The amount of work required was extensive, with 23 piers being needed to support the weight of the house and keep it from sliding more. Needless to say, this was a huge job.
Danny of VFS came in and gave me a very thorough presentation and explained in detail what they would do to fix the problem and how they would do it. After getting his quote I chose him to do the work. They were WAY below the highest number, which was a well known competitor.
A few weeks later they started work and despite 90 degree temperatures worked like dogs all day long. Any time I had a question they answered it and put me completely at ease with what they were doing. In addition to the 23 piers I also had them encapsulate the crawlspace since I did not have any insulation under the house. They removed all the debris as well as the old liner, and put in a nice new liner after grading the space. Then they insulated the space with the insulating boards on the wall. Finally, a new crawlspace door finished the work.
The actual piers were an amazing thing to watch and once they were done completely solved the problem. The lifetime warranty not only gives me peace of mind, but also anyone who ever buys my house. The final packet also comes with a letter from a certified engineer that all the calculations were done correctly, and that the piers were installed to the needed specifications.
Once they were done they not only put everything back like it had been, they actually put it back better than it was originally. I wish I could find landscapers who took as much pride in grading by lawn and repairing things.
I highly recommend VFS for your foundation repair needs.
My sincere thanks to VFS for their outstanding professionalism with recent foundation repairs to my “home away from home” barn workshop in Northeastern North Carolina. From the moment I spoke to Carolyn, who arranged for Terry to make a site visit, to the moment the work crew arrived, to a final hand-written note sent thanking me for my business, I enjoyed every minute of the experience. Carolyn was very helpful in arranging all of the business details. Terry was prompt in his visit to the work site and provided detailed explanations of how the push pier process worked and the costs involved. The crew of Tiger, Matt, and Jose were hard-working, efficient, neat, and most patient with all of my questions during the repairs. Finally, a special thanks to Lyla, VFS’s four-legged hostess who warmly greeted me when I first arrived at the office!
Top notch service and execution by VFS. Thank you for a job well done! I had them do some repairs in my crawl space last year and it's all held up very well. I give VFS the highest recommendation- anyone needing crawl space work, no need to look any further!
Virginia Foundation Solutions did an excellent job in taking care of our foundation and moister control problems. Ted, Daniel, et al. were courteous, knowledgeable and professional. The crew showed up on-time, completed the work as-scheduled, and thoroughly cleaned-up when the job was done. I am very satisfied with the quality of their work and would highly recommend VFS to other
After inverviewing several crawlspace and foundation repair companies, we selected Virginia Foundation Solutions to address our problem. Daniel Farris performed a crawlspace inspection including detailed pictures and recommended a program to correct existing problems and to prevent future trouble. The proposed scope of work was detailed and the price was competitive with other bids. Miguel and his professional crew were on time and took pride in their work. We received daily progress reports and all work was completed On Time and On Budget making for a very pleasant experience with VFS. Danny Farris is a thoroughly professional engineer and businessman. He was the prime reason for selecting VFS and is highly recommended.
VFS is an outstanding company. Their workmanship and customer service is top notch. All work was performed as stated, on time and efficiently. The work site was left clean and clear of any debris. I had this work done on a rental home I intended to sell. The home was two hours drive from my primary residence, so when a home inspector stated the dehumidifier was not operating VFS came out to the home and checked the unit out confirming that it was operating as designed. I was ecstatic about the service VFS provided even though it had been six months since the initial installation. VFS defined customer service and I would highly recommend them to any homeowner requiring foundation work.
Dealing with VFS was extremely pleasant from start to finish. On the initial inspection, Ted listened to my concerns regarding my home and what my priorities were. He addressed these perfectly, and came up with solutions that met my needs, without trying to "oversell". His price quote was very fair, and thousands less than the big local company that advertises on TV. In addition, the amount of work done by VFS was much more comprehensive than the other company's proposal. My crawlspace was encapsulated, a crawlspace drainage system with sump pumps was created, and a dehumidifier was installed. I also had 2 jacks installed, 4 sister joists, and shims were repaired. The job was started weeks earlier than expected, which was great. The 2 crews who worked on our house were very polite, quiet, and unobtrusive. The work site was kept clean. I had an extensive drainage system created in the backyard, with multiple downspouts routed underground with trenches out to the ditches at the side of the house. I was afraid that the yard would look awful afterward, and that I would have to plant new grass seed or sod. To my pleasant surprise, when the work was done it was very difficult to tell that the yard had ever been disturbed. To make things even better, one of the guys even fixed my backyard gates, which were scraping on the ground, for no extra charge. I am extremely happy with the work so far, and would absolutely refer friends, family, and coworkers to VFS for any work they needed done. In fact, one of my coworkers has already gotten an estimate for work on her house, and was very pleased with the initial consultation.
Excellent customer experience in all respects. Everything was completed on time whether it was a call-back, estimate or crew's scheduled arrival and departure. Communication w/Danny and/or the office staff was excellent...questions/inquiries were received and answers were provided promptly and succinctly. The solution to the problem was explained in terms a non-engineer could understand. The workmanship and materials were excellent. The crew members were courteous and professional in their demeanor. The work space (crawlspace) was returned to the same/better condition than before the work started. The cost competitive; the deciding factor was the confidence generated by the professionalism of the VFS team. I'm completely satisfied. Well done.
We recently hired VFS, and our job is now complete. The men that worked here were excellent. They worked continuously to complete the job on time, kept us informed and tried to explain each step. As older people, we really appreciate having respectful, kind and trustworthy people to work with us. Everyone we had contact with at the company was pleasant, kind and aimed to please. We were shown pictures of the completed job- it looked really good. I highly recommend Virginia Foundation Solutions.

We discovered a serious foundation settlement problem with our home a few years ago, with associated cracks in the bricks of the wall outside , the marble floor and the walls in the house. We hired a big foundation repair company in Virginia Beach to fix the problem. Unfortunately, the problem only got worse and when we tried to get the company to warranty the work, they refused. After getting no help from them, we called Virginia Foundation Solutions. Daniel Farris (the owner) came out to inspect our home and found it to be sinking from the front to back nearly 5". Once they presented the repair plan, it became obvious that the prior company's work was not nearly extensive enough to solve our problem in the first place, which was very disheartening. We liked the fact that VFS offered a comprehensive plan and had an independent structural engineering firm overseeing their work. VFS installed 41 foundation push piers around the perimeter of our home to stop the sinking and eliminate the other company's failed push piers. Upon installation, they discovered a separate, hidden problem - water flowing from under our slab and through the foundation walls, so we had them waterproof the entire foundation as well. The job was further complicated by multiple obstructions (stamped concrete patios, hvac units, pool pumps, landscaping, etc). So, the crews worked diligently, despite all the hurdles. I must mention the professionalism, knowledge, integrity, confidence and courteousness of everybody on the team. We could tell they take a lot of pride in their work. For two months, from day one the crew come on time, worked continuously, cleaned the working space at the end of the day. The production supervisors and owner checked on progress regularly, communication with the office was great, and we were always kept informed of the status of the job progression. After completion the project, VFS restored two our stamped concrete porches , paves, landscaping, etc. They even re-sodded our yard where foot traffic had damaged it and mulched the entire property. Our home and landscaping looks as good or better now, than they started the job. VFS went above and beyond what was promised. We feel very grateful to have found such a trustworthy company to have finally fixed our home and bring us piece of mind.
I would definitely highly recommend VFS to anyone needing similar type of the service and , also, I will call them in the future, if something else comes up. Well done!
Our problem first manifested by condensation in our attic, for which we blamed improperly installed new insulation (partially true). But further investigation revealed several inches of water standing in our crawl space. We found only meager help until landing on VFS website. Well documented instruction and sound engineering solutions presented hope. That hope was reinforced by Ted's inspection and proposal for correction. The VFS crew was prompt, polite and very professional in their work and within one day, short of wiring, the job was done. I find myself almost hoping for a sustained heavy rain to see true resolution.
We asked VFS to inspect our house because it felt a bit 'off' to me. Turns out there was nothing wrong with it they could find, and they were honest enough to tell my husband and I that! We will definitely recommend VFS and call them in the future if something else comes up. Thanks, VFS
The crawl space under the Club house at our Homeowners Association was really a mess. There was standing water, mold and moisture everywhere. The finished product was unbelievable. Just like the picture all clean. white and dry. Dealing with this company was a pleasant experience from start to finish. You would never know they were working under there. No mess outside, no noise inside or out, no scheduled interruptions. I highly recommend this company to anyone who has crawlspace issues.
They went above and beyond what was promised.
I had been experiencing interior doors that either jammed or would not latch when closed. I also had several disturbing cracks extending out from door/window frames. "Tiger" and his team came out and installed "sister joists" at load points in the floor joists. They removed wood shims and installed steel shims on the existing piers. I was very pleased to discover that the interior doors now close and latch. The cracks are actually closed. Previous to this, I had a competing foundation company come out twice for the same problems. Neither trip resulted in a resolution to my issues. I am very happy with VA Foundation Solutions as well as the professionalism shown by Tiger and his team.
We chose Virginia Foundation Solutions over other companies because they had very complete and clear answers all to our questions, and explained how to solve our crawl space problem thoroughly. We were very satisfied with VFS. All promises that were made to us at the beginning of the project were kept, and work was completed without issues. Our inspector, Terry, was careful to examine all areas of our house before deciding how to repair. We did not feel he missed any issues and is very pleasant to work with. Our crew leader, Lupe, is to be commended for his determination to do the job with extreme perfection. He is a great asset to the company, and his assistants also worked very hard. These employees made a difficult situation much easier. Thanks VFS
Our condominium building on the Oceanfront in Virginia Beach had chronic standing water from flooding and high ground water. It was unlevel with low pockets holding water, and decades of construction debris left inside. Virginia Foundation Solutions cleared out all the debris, graded the soil and installed perimeter trenches and sump pumps. Their work was impeccable and exceeded our expectations in every aspect. They showed up as scheduled, with an experienced, attentive crew who worked a full day, every day, for 3 weeks.
Every employee and contractor associated with the project was polite, responsive, and extremely qualified. Every detail was accounted for in the highest of quality. There were no cutting corners, only consistent, earnest and knowledge in everything that was being executed. Communication and responsiveness was superb and the quality of work bar none.
We were so impressed with the standard of work they conducted that we sought out their skills for a related project associated with sealing off all the open areas under the balconies that allowed cold air under the building, and insulating our pipes to prevent freezing. This had been bid out to several contractors, but VFS’s implementation of this outshined the other contractor’s approach. Their craftsmanship in this related custom carpentry work again dazzled us. We have such trust and appreciation for Virginia Foundation Solutions that we could not give a higher recommendation. We work with many construction entities in the operation and maintenance of our building and this company has put themselves at the top of our list for quality, value, customer service and responsiveness. They don’t come any better.
The crawl space under the Club house at our Homeowners Association was really a mess. There was standing water, mold and moisture everywhere. The finished product was unbelievable. Just like the picture all clean. white and dry. Dealing with this company was a pleasant experience from start to finish. You would never know they were working under there. No mess outside, no noise inside or out, no scheduled interruptions. I highly recommend this company to anyone who has crawlspace issues. They went above and beyond what was promised.
Had some serious foundation settling in my home with corresponding cracks in the brick skirt around my crawlspace. Solicited estimates from 3 contractors in the area including Virginia Foundation Solutions (VFS). VFS rep came out and analyzed my problem methodically. The VFS estimate focused on my problem and correcting it. He then explained the particulars of how they would stabilize my foundation, what the costs were and how long it would take. The VFS crew showed up on schedule, completed the work on time and at the agreed upon cost. They left the worksite as clean as they found it and hauled all the debris away as promised. The crew was hardworking, pleasant, professional, and diligent. The mason in particular did a great job identifying a rotted band board near where the porch push piers were installed. He also did a phenomenal job rebuilding the porch and repairing all the cracks in my brick skirt. Calls to the company and the owner were always answered or returned within minutes. Overall, hiring VFS was a great choice and experience and am very happy with the results!
We wanted to incapsulate the crawl space. Mission accomplished. Virginia Foundation Solutions did a great job. We can't tell if there is any difference in the frequency the A/C comes on... We will see in the winter how warm the house will be. The house definitely smells better. The work crew was professional and courteous. They left the work area clean at the end of each day. They are timely in their communications and answering all of our questions. The crew leader provided details and explanations during the work process. The owner worked with us around our schedule. Everybody was polite and we felt that we could trust them in our home.
Our crawl space was a muddy damp mess. We called VFS for an estimate along with a few other companies. We liked Danny, the owner, and his approach to solving our issues right away. We went with VFS to do the work because their approach was absolutely the most comprehensive. They were not the cheapest but I believe they are the best. You do get what you pay for. The result was great....our crawl space now looks the pictures we saw of a dry, encapsulated crawl space. As crawl spaces go, I'd say it's lovely!
After several estimates, reviews and recommendations for foundation repair companies, we decided to have Virginia Foundation Solutions, Inc. to perform work on our house foundation. They were all professional and courteous. They started and completed work as promised on our contract. We were very impressed with the push pier and masonry work done on our foundation and will recommend VSF to all.
We had a crawl space encapsulation in our home in January 2015. After many unsuccessful attempts over a 20 year period at maintaing a dry crawl space, we decided on an encapsulation; we obtained several estimats in Dec 2014 and decided to contract VFS after meeting and viewing the proposal presented by Daniel Farris. The work was completed in mid-January.
My wife and I have been extremely pleased with the job and the results. To begin with, the workers who installed the encapsulation were prompt, courteous and responsive. They took pains not to disturb the household while they worked. Especially courteous and responsive was Ted. When completed, the job site and our property were left spotless.
We have had the encapsulation now for more than six months and the crawl space has been bone dry. We recently called VFS to evaluate a separate problem (to fill in a gap in the brick siding). After assessing it, they scheduled a repair job - free of charge.
My wife and I are extremely satisfied with the results of our encapsulation and have already recommended VFS to several friends. I have nothing but praise for the entire organization and will continue to recommend VFS.
Virginia Foundation Solutions just completed a big job of stabilizing my house with push piers and some masonry repair. They were all courteous and professional. They started the job on time as promised and finished on time as well. They left the yard clean replaced all of the disturbed bushes. Overall, I am very pleased.
VFS was very professional, they came in and performed an assessment and gave us a quote for an encapsulation and drainage system under our house, which had a ton of water under the house. They put in two sump pumps and a dehumidifier. The crawlspace has been dry ever since. The crew was on time, cleaned up after themselves. Every thing they said they would deliver they did. I would trust them with my next job. Customer service was excellent.John and Rachelle
Two days after contacting Virginia Foundation Solutions requesting an estimate, Danny Farris came out and inspected the crawl space. After his inspection he showed me pictures and explained exactly what he found and what his recommendations were for the different issues were. He wrote out the recommendations and estimated cost for each and discussed each knowledgeably. I made the decision to go with VFS because of Danny’s explanation and knowledge of the issues and how they should be solved. Although VFS estimate was the second highest overall, it was fair for the amount of work and quality of materials used. The work crew were timely, polite, professional and worked tirelessly to complete the work on schedule. I was kept informed of progress throughout the process. One small thing that impressed me was on the first day a porta potty was put on site for the crew. After the work was completed Danny came out and inspected and took pictures of the crawl space and three days later I received a very nice hand writer thank you note for choosing VFS to do the work. The entire process of Encapsulation and installing dehumidifier from start to completion was very professional and I would not hesitate to recommend Virginia Foundation Solutions to anyone.

It's been almost a year since we called Virginia Foundation Solutions after a recommendation from a friend. We were close to panic stage as the foundation and flooring in our 100+ year old farmhouse were literally collapsing under our feet. Danny came out and saw how bad the situation was. His crew was able to get on the job quickly, and they basically rebuilt the house for us from the inside out - replaced the foundation under the living room, dining room, and kitchen, installed lots of new footers, and got everything level and firm again with new sill beams, floor joists, etc. They even had to remove and rebuild the old exterior wall and windows along the side of the house. The amazing thing is that we were able to stay in the house (with cats) while all this went on. They were blessedly quick and very efficient and got the whole huge job done very quickly, within a couple of weeks. And I especially loved the way they left the work area perfectly clean and useable each evening - they brought in plywood to cover the huge pit that was the center of our home, covered everything with plastic to keep the critters and rain out, and even managed to keep the refrigerator and window air conditioner running so we could continue living here. We didn't expect the kitchen to need to be torn out and redone also, but Danny saw the problems under that floor and did more for us without charging us more.
I was most impressed with the job they did for us and how quickly they did it. Months later I had some issues and they came back quickly and made everything right again. Friends who watched the progress reports were amazed that we were able to continue living here through all this - the crew was wonderful and really went above and beyond to make it easier on us, and they were here working long and hard every day until the job was done.
We hired VFS to complete foundation repairs needed for the sale of our home in Norfolk. Danny and his crew were great. They responded quickly and on short notice to our requests. They worked tirelessly, including after hours and on weekends to ensure our foundation repairs were completed quickly and on schedule with our home sale. In our absence as out-of-town sellers, they coordinated multiple visits with the engineer that approved the foundation work. They did all of this for a reasonable cost and went above and beyond. We would not have been able to sell our house without VFS. Thank you, VFS, for the quality work and professional service. We highly recommend VFS!
I had a problem with water coming into my basement. After doing research, I contacted VFS to come out to resolve these problems. I was very pleased with the outcome of their job performance. They fixed my water problem after waterproofing my foundation, putting in drainage, and even fixing my front porch that was settling. They left a clean work area, are very courteous, and even cleaned up the brush in my yard. I highly recommend this company!
In 2014 VFS repaired my home foundation settlement problem. I was so pleased with the outcome and the knowledge that Virginia Foundation Solutions provided that I decided to re-hire them as I needed a drainage system installed around my detached garage. Again, "Quality Service" by the hard working team at VFS!!! The job was completed in 2 days. I now have no more flooding issues and have beautifully landscaped river rock beds. "Very Impressive and Well Thought Out Job." I highly recommend Virginia Foundation Solutions, they do high quality work, they are a trustworthy company, and best of all, they are "On Point".
VFS came out immediately and assessed problems concerning our slab foundation. The job was scheduled right away even though temperatures were below freezing! The workers did a great job and were very considerate of our surrounding landscape. I would highly recommend this company…Charles Brown.
I had a problem with a floor that was sinking. VFS's president, Danny Farris inspected the effected area an proposed a solution. After a detailed discussion, we agreed on a plan. The work was done professionally & on schedule. I was very satisfied with the work. The whole VFS team seemed driven to satisify the customer. I am a business owner & really appreciated their care & concern.
My experiences with Virginia Foundation Solutions has been first class all the way. From a sinking foundation issue in a residential environment, to part of a 2.7 million dollar commercial renovation, VFS has been outstanding. The owner is extremely knowledgeable, and has a great relationship with general contractors, as well as structural engineers .His entire team is courteous and professional. I would highly recommend, and look forward to working with them on future projects.
I called 3 companies to fix the foundation problems at our rental property. I listened to each one very carefully. It was VFS that explained thoroughly what is wrong with the foundation and how they can fix the problem. Danny Farris, the owner of the company showed me before pictures of the problem. After it was fixed, I saw the cracks close and how much the house had lifted. I went to the office when the job was complete to see after pictures of the work. I am so pleased with the job that I will have VFS take care of another problem for me after the holidays.
We live in an older brick home and noticed what we thought were settling/foundation issues. Wanting to tackle a problem before it became a bigger issue we called VFS to come look at our house. The owner came and gave us a thorough overview of not only our house but of how foundation issues occur. He was knowledgeable, honest, and extremely helpful. To our surprise it appears we do not currently have foundation issues but masonry and window work that needs to be done. If in the future it turns out we do need foundation work VFS will without a doubt be the company we use.
When I realized that the sloping floors in my home were not just a cosmetic issue but an indication of settling, I contacted a few companies for evaluation and estimates. Chris, of Virginia Beach Foundation Solutions came out to evaluate my home. He took the time to explain to me what the issue was and pointed out evidence in the home other than the sloping floors of settling. He offered to answer any follow up questions that I had and recommended that I call other companies to evaluate as well. That being my plan, I proceeded with having two other companies evaluate. The other companies’ evaluations paled in comparison in both detail and pricing; therefore, I decided on VFS. When I called to finalize the contract, I was dismayed to find that Chris was no longer with the company. Danny Farris, the owner took over my job. He came out to re-evaluate before we signed the final contract. He was knowledgeable, honest, professional and responsive. My job foreman was Daniel. He and his crew were a pleasure to work with – always on time, professional and willing to answer any questions. I had a family emergency and had to leave town. I left the key to my home with Daniel and he and his crew treated my home as if it were their own. I am extremely particular and VFS catered to my needs in every way. Danny and his team were always concerned with ensuring that I was happy. The office staff was equally as courteous and accommodating. I highly recommend VFS – their integrity, customer service, attention to detail, professionalism and knowledge is un-paralleled in the industry. You can’t go wrong!
I had a severe moisture issue in my crawl space, one like I had never seen before. So bad that moisture had saturated the insulation and mold was starting to grow. I called several contractors but none included all that needed to be done in their pricing. The owner came out himself to asses the issue. What he said was needed, I happen to agree on as I have been in that field for many years. His pricing included many items that the other contractors did not or did not handle at all, which meant looking for another contractor. Not what I needed to do. The rehab of the crawl space went very smoothly. The staff were very easy to work with. Now completed, the crawl space is very dry and I believe that the home air is much cleaner and healthier than it was. Great Job Guys - Keep up the good work...
Having been made aware of a serious moisture and mold problem in our crawl space, my wife and I had the daunting task of finding a fair and reputable company to get our house back in order. After first contacting a well advertised company as seen on TV and getting a price that was astronomical, we contacted Virginia Foundation Solutions, Inc. Within no more than two days, Danny Farris, the owner of the company, came out for an immediate consultation. He crawled under our house to first survey the problem, then sat down to discuss the problem and what would be needed to correct the many issues and ensure no further problems in the future. My wife and I decided to go with VFS, Inc. for two reasons: the price was considerably lower than their competition, but mostly because of the thoroughness of Mr. Farris’s explanation and knowledge of the work to be done. From day one, the work crew, led by Miguel, worked steady and tirelessly to complete the extensive work needed on our home. The crew was friendly, courteous and always polite. The job site was always cleaned at the end of the day. The project manager, Ted, was helpful in keeping us apprised on what was going on and at one point, providing a clean suit so I could tour the crawl space of my house to view the progress and view the repair work. During the course of repairs, it was discovered and apparent that additional work would be needed to replace additional floor joists and sub-flooring in one part of our house, something that was not in our budget! Talking with the owner of VFS, Inc., Mr. Daniel Farris, we were able to come to a more than generous and equitable agreement for the cost of the repair. Now that we are nearly in the home stretch, we thought we were in the clear. Unfortunately, we were thrown a curve ball when yet one more surprise was found, more damage…Again, talking with the owner, after quitting time on a Friday afternoon, he informed me that this repair would be, “On the Company, and for us not to worry about it, it would be taken care of!” With the work and care this company has put into my home, I could not have found a better company to take care of my needs. Nor could I recommend a better-qualified company to take care of your home. Quality and customer service are number one with VFS, Inc. from the top down!
VFS did a fantastic job liftinig our house foundation by installing push piers and crawl space support piers as our house was settling and caused numerous cracks in our walls and outside bricks. The owner of the company and the crew were very professional and efficient with their knowledge and the repair of the stucture. It was a big job and they finished the job within their time frame we agreed upon. They cleaned the area on a daily basis and left no mess for the homeowner. We are so pleased with the finished product and impressed with the extra care they took to even make our landscaping look good as new. We highly recommend VFS to anyone who has structural damage or crawl space problems. "A FANTASTIC JOB WITH A LIFETIME GURANTEE"
Excellent company with the customers concerns #1 Priority. Ted worked hard to ensure that we were happy with the job from quote to finish. Crew did an excellent job working, kept everything clean and respected the property. I would definitely recommend VA Solutions for your needs!!! Thanks Ted
We had Danny's project manager, Ted, and his crew led by Miguel come and jack up our house last week and we couldn't have been more impressed. Over the years we've learned to choose companies for any work needed done from the Better Business Bureau website and have only ever chosen those with A+ ratings. VFS has completely reset the standard for us. They manage to perfectly balance professionalism and friendliness. And it's EVERY SINGLE PERSON in their company that is this way. They were timely, extremely clean and considerate, and the communication within the company and between the company and us was outstanding. Everyone was on the same page. No confusion. No mix-ups. No one showed up to the job asking me what they were supposed to be doing (yes, I've had a company do this before). I knew from the moment I met Danny that his team would be the one we hired, but he encouraged us to shop around and to get other quotes so that we would be sure we were making the right choice. The choice was very easy. Simply amazing the amount of heart his entire team has in doing the job right.
I had a serious water drainage problem in the crawlspace of my home, there was so much water under there that it was practically flooded. I had multiple foundation repair companies come out to give me a quote. I choose Virginia Foundation Solutions (VFS) because they were a Class A Contractor, gave me a very reasonable price quote, and had great references from previous reviews. The owner himself, Danny came out for the price quote and suggested that I put in a full perimeter drainage system with 2 sump pumps, full crawlspace encapsulation, with a dehumidifier. Because my house was not designed too well and since I had so much water under my house the drywall in the garage got very moist and moldy over the years. So, Danny also offered to replace the drywall at the bottom walls of the garage and also put gravel under my deck since it also had water pooling under it for no extra charge! The crew came to work promptly every morning and cleaned up everyday after they left. I was very impressed with the attention to detail they showed in their work. Ted Newberry, who was the foreman on site, also addressed all of my concerns and questions promptly as the work progressed at my house. I am mesmerized of the end result. I went in the crawlspace after the work was done and couldn’t believe that it was the same crawlspace! It looked very clean and was very dry for once. I couldn’t be happier that I choose VFS to work on my crawlspace. If you want an honest and trustworthy company to work on your home call VFS and you will not be disappointed!
Great experience with VFS! Very responsive to questions and needs, very communicative, and they did a quality job on my crawlspace encapsulation. Would definitely recommend them and use them again if necessary. They take customer service and quality work seriously. Something that's hard to come by these days!!
We choose Virginia Foundation Solutions (VFS) because (1) they are locally owned, (2) Danny the owner explained in detail what needed to be done. and (3) the office staff were very polite and responsive. VFS came out within 2 days of requesting a quote and provided a reasonable quote.There was no high pressure sales involved. VFS employees who did the work were professional, kept the work area clean, and got the job done earlier than expected. I would definitely recommend VFS to a neighbor or friend.
I had a major moisture problem in my home crawlspace that haunted me for over a year. I received a free inspection and reasonable quote within a few days of my online request. They were very informative, pleasant and professional. The finished result of my crawlspace is outstanding! We are very pleased with the services provided and recommend them to everyone we know. Soooooo relieved this problem is over!
I had been aware of moisture problems in my crawl space for several years. The condition was still there even after adding additional sand, a new vapor barrier and new foundation vents. After getting five estimates and three suggested solutions, Virginia Foundation Solutions gave me the most confidence and comfort with their proposal, in addition to the best price. The professionalism and competence from the initial presentation by Ted Newberry through the job completion by their work crew was excellent. Job site was left clean every day, crew was prompt and polite, schedule was kept in spite of a snow storm, excellent communication, what else could you ask for. Encapsulation, dehumidifier and sump installation was A1! Thanks VFS, I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone or call you again if the need arises for something else. Carlton & Nell Page
I am a REALTOR in Virginia Beach who had a listing with some real structural problems. In order to sell the home, I had to assist the owner in finding a company that could do the repair work at a reasonable cost. I got an estimate from a well-known foundation repair company but the price was way too high. I called Danny Farris at Virginia Foundation Solutions and he got right out to look at the job and give me an estimate for making the house foundation solid. It was important to me that a structural engineer be involved with the solution - and that is what he did. He gave me a great price and was able to get the job done in a very professional manner within the time frame we requested. He did a lot of "extras" at no additional charge which was appreciated. The buyer was happy and the sale closed last week! Virginia Foundation Solutions will be my company of choice for any structural repairs or foundation issues. I highly recommend them to other REALTORS as well. Danny was a pleasure to work with. Stephanie Clark, RE/MAX Alliance
Totally amazed at the attention to detail. They went above and beyond in all the projects I had them do. I originally just wanted them to do the Foundation repair, but during our initial meeting I discussed how I had a laundry list of projects I was getting quotes for. They offered to put in a bid for all the projects I had to get done. In the end they got all projects done for less and with better quality materials. Nailed it all down in one week, where as if I had done them either myself or via other construction companies it would have taken nearly 3 weeks or more.
Also as a side note my Father In Law came down during the work. He is a Engineer in Maine and was blown away by the quality of the workmanship. Every thing was above and beyond expectations.
Projects completed: Crawl Space Encapsulation, Foundation Repair, 8x12 Shed, and a few other smaller projects.
In short they are amazing, totally recommend them to my clients. Im a Real Estate Agent and any work my clients need done I hand over a VFS card every time.

I have had a moisture/foundation problem for years, I kept postponing the work that I needed to do to get my kids though college. I called three companies for estimates, including the company that advertises on the radio very frequently. The company that advertises on the radio sent out an estimator, who apparently works on commission. The list of recommended work was far more than I thought reasonable. Subsequently, I had an engineer look at the house and he agreed that the proposal was for more work than necessary to solve the problem. I got two more estimates - both small companies. The estimates were close, but the proposed solutions were different. VFS gave me the cheaper estimate, and the proposal was for work that would look better in the end. I went with VFS. They started work before they said they would be able to, once they cleared that with me. They showed up on time, cleaned up after each day and completed the work faster than I thought it would take. The results are fantastic looking and the moisture problem is solved. How can you beat that - cheapest estimate, best proposal to solve the problem, work completed ahead of schedule? I would not hesitate to recommend VFS to anyone.
I am recently retired and previously worked as a civil / structural engineer. To my dismay I realized that the foundation of my house was inadequate when walls began to crack and doors where dragging the floor. I contacted several of the "big name" heavy advertisers that do foundation work in our area. The company reps that came out to bid on my repair needs gave highly polished smoke and mirror type presentations, however they were unable to convince me that their plan solved my problem. Luckily I also contacted VFS, they presented a comprehensive and thorough plan based on sound engineering principles. A problem well defined is half solved, no one else even got that far! Next came execution of the project. I was impressed by the efficiency of VFS personnel as well as with their tidiness. It was practically like they had a hammer in one hand, a dust pan in the other. They are neat and organized, and respect your property while they work. Upon completion of the project, everything was delivered as promised. Our crawl space was clean and dry, sagging floors leveled, and our house no longer shakes when the washing machine hits the spin cycle. We had serious issues and the structural integrity of our house was on the line not to mention a severe mold and moisture problems in our crawl space. It gives us great peace of mind to have those problems resolved thanks to a very conscientious company that exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend Danny Farris and his company Virginia Foundation Solutions, Inc. of Virginia Beach, VA
Tree roots caused a crack in the brick around the foundation of my home. Mr. Newberry and Mr. Ferris came out and wrote an estimate for the repairs to my home. Once the work was complete, it was discovered that they did not need to pour footing to existing concrete with rebarb and the flashing did not need replacing. Mr. Ferris came by personally and indicated that the price quoted would be reduced. If you need foundation work completed by this company, I highly recommend them. They are fair and honest. Many contractors once a contract is written and signed for work quoted will not make any adjustments. Thank you!
I have had 3 massive water leaks in my home i have owned over the last 7 years. After the most recent one 12/2012 i decided to do something about it. After much research i decided to go with Virginia Foundations Solutions. The owner of the company himself came out to my home to estimate my work , which was a drain system , waterproofing the outside walls,and a inside drain system which led to a sump pump where excess water was to be pumped to the outside world. To describe the company, i can use only one word .....FLAWLESS. By the way , two days after My job was completed (07/21/2013) we has a massive storm, and i went out in the storm to see how my drain system was working , and it almost brought me to tears to see all the crystal clear water run OUT from my Foundation!!! THEY ARE WORTH EVERY PENNY YOU PAY THEM. I simply got a signature loan to pay for everything. Contractors and their employees were out at my Home EVERY day they could Work , and they were on time as well. None of them were using any profanity, and they kept me in the loop for all of the work that was to be performed.I felt Secure having them work on my home. A+++++
