The JLB Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing Difference

1. Locally Owned & Operated

If you’re not from Missouri or Kansas, you likely don’t get it. From the frequently fluctuating temperatures to the hot, dry droughts to the non-stop rains. Missouri & Kansas soil goes through consistent changes throughout the year, which can be tough on your home’s foundation. That’s why hiring a company that understands Missouri & Kansas is your best choice.

2. Experienced Estimators

To become a JLB Foundation Repair estimator, you’ve got to have ground-level experience first. Most of our estimators either have multiple years of experience in the foundation industry or started at the bottom and worked up. This is important so you get an accurate quote and proper diagnosis.

3. Proven Solutions

Foundation Repair is not one-size-fits-all. Solutions that work in Texas are not always going to work for Missouri or Kansas homes due to the different soil types. That’s why JLB only deploys trusted solutions proven to work in Kansas and Missouri’s rich soil.

4. Experienced Crews

JLB’s crews bring over 75+ years of combined foundation repair experience to the table. Likely, there is not a single foundation-related issue one of our units can’t solve or has not seen.

5. Affordable

Since we are a mid-sized company serving a specific area of Kansas and Missouri, we do not carry the sizeable overhead name brand companies have. Often this allows us to stay hyper-competitive and offer lower costs for the same if not better solutions.

While all of these problems may seem alarming, JLB Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing is your one-stop-shop for fixing existing issues and preventing more damage from occurring.

Foundation problems can threaten the integrity of your home. Water seeping into your house may also have adverse effects on the health of your loved ones. JLB Foundation Repair and Basement Waterproofing can fix those issues, so you never have to worry about the structural integrity of your home again.

 If a rainy Kansas City forecast makes you anxious because you know your basement will soon fill with water, Call JLB Today!
