I appreciate the great attitude and the discussions I had with Nick Kelton. He and I came up with the best solution for my house and family. He was very professional and I felt it was quality all the way through. Five out of five stars. I would recommend him and Helitech to any of my family or friends.

Nick F. came to the house for the estimate and was very informative and professional he answered all of my questions!! He even made a second trip out to answer all the questions my wife had and did an outstanding job. The financing process was seamless. Then it came down to the work being done. Colton R, the foreman of the work crew, was very informative about what all they were going to do and the timeline for the work to be completed. He and his crew did an amazing job they were all very professional and courteous will be recommended to anyone with foundation issues and waterproofing needs.

Will and his crew with Helitech did a fantastic job. They made some suggestions and I felt they had my best interest in mind. My porch and house foundation is finally stable and I can relax and enjoy our home.

The men that did the work on our foundation stabilization did an awesome job. They communicated very well with us. If something extra needed to be done, they always checked with us before moving forward. There were many days of long, HOT and strenuous work, but they kept on until everything was completed.

My home is now dry, even after severe rainstorms. Thank you, Helitech team, especially Kevin and Lucas (foreman). Everyone advised me to hire a company that had experience and was in business for a long time. I see the wisdom in that. My house needed that experience and teamwork. After two phases (1 – sump and drainage, crack repair, and wall anchors and 2 – concrete leveling, pier, and French drain), I no longer even check the weather forecast. Lucas S. was the foreman in both phases and his work ethic and concern about the job are very much appreciated. They show up on time, show consideration for you and your home, and complete the work, including clean up. Thank you, Helitech, for all of your hard work on my home.

I was very impressed, Jon came out and surveyed the job, got back to me with what process the engineers thought was best for my foundation repair. Everything was explained toughly and in precise detail, so as I knew what to expect. When the crew showed up they went above and beyond what I expected of them, very polite and professional and when finished the end results were nothing short of amazing. I would most definitely recommend Helitech.

I heard good things about the company, plus the lifetime warranty on the work done is a very good seller for me. Your project estimator was friendly and would keep me informed on your time coming out, your project foreman was very good and his workers also. They were very friendly and did a good job also. You have some good employee workers. I’m glad I used Helitech for this job.

I just wanted to send a note commending the Helitech Crew on another job well done. This is the third job we have had completed by Helitech and the experience has been the same each time. Larry got here the day after I called with the problem. The job was scheduled and completed quickly. Everyone has been friendly and efficient and communication has always been good. Thanks again for taking care of our problem.

I wanted to let you know that I greatly appreciate you getting us on the schedule a week early. I also wanted to let you know the crew that was sent out (Cameron C., Ryan G., & Leroy) did a phenomenal job. They were all very friendly and courteous. Not to mention very thorough in explaining the process and the final walk through. they all worked very hard and finished a day early. Nowadays it is hard to find hard working courteous employees. Please let everyone know at Helitech what a great job they did. they definitely deserve recognition. thank you.

Greg took the time to go over my unique situation and thankfully gave me the good news that my foundation was solid but the additions that were added to the home were off. He also was generous enough to give me pointers on how to fix the issues with my flooring in my kitchen to get them level. As a first time homebuyer it really was a relief that it wasn’t something much worse. I thank Greg for his wealth of knowledge and expertise. Highly recommended!

I want to let you know that the crew that did the work at my house the past two days were very refreshing. It was nice to see people wanting to work and learn. Alex P knew his job very well and took the time to explain the steps to me throughout the process. He also was an excellent instructor, he has great soft skills when teaching his coworkers. You have a good man working for you. The rest of the crew, Akil C, John T & Kim W, was very polite. They worked & followed Alex’s instructions and wanted to learn. The experience for me was a positive one.

I’m writing this review entirely based on my introduction to the company with Brian Cox and his home visit to perform a quote/sales call. I had two other companies scheduled to come out and do quotes later that week, but I was so impressed with his transparency, thoroughness, and willingness to listen that I was completely sold and canceled their appts. This is how a sales call is supposed to go, sometimes people come out and try to interrupt, rush and slap down a piece of paper and get out. Brian had the emotional intelligence to work w/ me on my level and that makes for an incredible customer experience. He should really be getting paid the big bucks and training other people on the team – I hope that’s the case. Thanks, Brian!

We had a very good experience with Brian Cox from Helitech. We wanted to see if we had foundation issues that needed very expensive repairs. Another company had given us a bid that would have cost thousands and torn up our property for months. As it turns out this work was totally unnecessary. Brian conducted a thorough analysis of our home that was significantly different from the previous company. He also provided us with a referral to an independent structural engineer who confirmed Brian’s evaluation, thus saving us thousands of dollars in unnecessary repairs. We’re most appreciative of the honest and professional services provided by Brian Cox and Helitech and would highly recommend them to others looking for an honest and professional evaluation of their home

They came to give the bid and showed me details of what work they would be performing and an iPad with a great video. This gave me a much better insight into what would really be happening to the house. They got us in as soon as they could and got the work done on time. Great to work with. I will be recommending them to anyone else in need of foundation repair or waterproofing! Thanks, guys!

We were having foundation issues and after contacting multiple companies we went with Helitech. We chose Helitech because they were knowledgeable, quick, and accommodating to our schedules. Their workers were professional and easy to work with. We are very satisfied with the results and would recommend them to anyone with foundation issues or a leaky basement. Kevin did a wonderful job walking us through the process and answering all our questions.

John from Helitech came out and used a laser level to find where the house had settled. He thoroughly examined the basement to find the problem areas. Cracks in the foundation were repaired by the crew. Very happy with the work and would recommend them to friends.

The sales rep (Jon Courtney) was very helpful! To start, we had a scary old foundation that was leaking and cracking on 2 sides. He took time to walk through all options and the pros and cons of the options. The was zero pressure to commit to a costly repair. He took the time to help us understand the structural concerns as we had no clue. We worked through the concerns which put us in the best position to stabilize our foundation walls and provide a lifetime guarantee of the structure. We also were provided a solution that would provide peace of mind for when we choose to sell our home. The lifetime warranty is transferable to the next owner which provides the potential buyer peace of mind as well. The solution we bought was not the most expensive solution, it was the best solution. We can’t thank Jon enough for the service and support throughout the entire process. We would recommend Helitech and Jon to anyone that has a need for foundation or waterproofing concerns. Thank you very much, Jon Courtney!

Great service. Kevin was great at explaining what needed to be done and following up. Aaron and his crew worked very hard in a particularly difficult job site. Clay soil and bedrock caused all kinds of problems, but they were on phone with supervisors, engineers, etc. to come up with the best solution options. Left job site clean, and finished in allotted time.

My experience with Helitech was great from beginning to end. Adam Fricke came out to see the space and work up the estimate and was very easy to work with. He explained the work they were going to do and got me scheduled quickly during a very busy time. The crew showed up on time and worked hard for three and a half days and took care to minimize the disturbance to my home. The waterproofing and foundation repair that they completed has held up well during some of the heavy rains we have had here since and it’s felt great to have that worry alleviated.

I appreciate the Helitech business for the work they did on my house. Nick provided a detailed plan addressing the foundation needs, replacing specific sill plates that were rotted, and recommending the jacks and supports that my house needed. Colton led a team of 4 workers that did the installation. They completed the repairs, kept me informed each day of their progress, and they went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. Thank you!!

Alex, Dwayne, and Dan did a fantastic job piering my foundation. They were prompt, courteous, neat, and worked at a hard job without stopping. They clearly explained what needed to be done, and did not do more work than was required. They also took the time to consult with contractors who were doing other types of work on my house and made sure that everyone was in agreement as to what was to be done, the timing of it, and by whom. Randy who initially came out to bid on the job was also excellent. Helitech came highly recommended, and I can see why. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

Kevin did a great job educating me on foundation issues, why it needed to be repaired and how was the best way to repair it. His way of educating was very powerful and never made me feel stupid. This is very important as I am a single woman and new to the foundation problem. I would highly recommend Helitech and Kevin for your foundation needs.

We wanted to pass along how pleased we are with the work your men did on our basement on August 21 & 22, 2017. They did an excellent job. They were so nice and we were happy with them at all times. We cannot thank you enough for these 4 men and will certainly recommend your company to any of our family & friends who need work on their basements. We hope we do not need any other work, but if we do, we will call only you.

Absolutely thrilled that I decided to go with Helitech for my home’s foundation needs. My biggest mistake was not calling them first. Jon Courtney takes time to listen, assesses your situation, and creates a plan for your needs that leaves you with confidence. A massive burden was relieved from my shoulders after my meeting with Jon. Rest assured that Jon is not a salesman. He will not try to sell you on time and material that is not needed for your waterproofing & foundation repair. Jon’s priority is addressing your situation appropriately that will leave you with confidence that your home or business is in good hands. Prior to reaching out to Helitech, I sought out another company that quoted me over 30k for repairs. An astronomical sum that I was unable to mentally justify. Jon put my issue into perspective and quoted me a more than fair price for repair. I immediately cut a check. I could not be happier. If you are looking for a company to address waterproofing & foundation repair for your home or business, save yourself the stress and gray hairs and give them a call. I am confident that it will be the best decision you made for your property.

I am writing to compliment (Brandon and Josh) for work completed at our house. They came at the promised time and proceeded to do their work in a timely and professional manner. They made virtually no mess or dust. They explained each step of the process, so I felt confident of their repair. Having been a licensed plumber for 36 years it was nice to see competent and professional workers. I would recommend Helitech to anyone needing similar repairs.

I had Helitech come out to my house a few weeks ago and they gave me a bid on some cracks, foundation repairs, and piers. He was very honest in what needed to be done. I had other foundation companies give me bids also which were very excessive and expensive. If you’re looking for someone you can trust and rely on give Helitech a call!!!

Thank you to you and your crews that worked in the Dietary Department here at Sparta Community Hospital during the “floor lifting” project. Everyone of the crew was polite, courteous, helpful and tolerant of all my questions and concerns. Because of that, our patients and staff were not affected by the project. That was the overall goal – no disruption of service plus a floor that rose! Great job to you and your crew members!

Very pleased with our experience so far with Helitech. In a time when we are very stressed with a large issue in our basement, we have been focused on finding the right fix with people who will shoot us straight and make us comfortable again in our own home.

We really enjoyed Kevin. He is a straight shooter who explained everything in detail and walked us through our options step by step and thoroughly. He is also good for a few laughs along the way. We will sleep better tonight knowing that they will take care of us.

Helitech was very knowledgeable and thorough in diagnosing and correcting my foundation issues. They explained how the landscape, proximal trees, land slope and drainage, and soil composition were all contributing factors to my problem. They provided the services to repair my foundation and install drainage solutions for my property! Thanks Helitech!

The guys showed up on time, explained everything they were going to do. Answered any questions I had. When completed showed me the results, again asked if I had any questions. Greg gave me my estimate, he did a great job answering all my questions. Throughout the process, Greg was always available, even on weekends when he was home. Great job, thanks to all!
