Most people would agree that your house is your most important asset. Knowing this, the team at AFS Foundation Repair & Waterproofing is dedicated to bringing peace of mind to neighborhoods across Birmingham.

We talked to these local experts to find out what makes AFS stand out from other specialists in the area, and we got an inside look at how they transformed a home’s crawlspace. Keep reading to see what we learned.

Why consider AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists?

To see this work in action, we met AFS at a home to see a completely transformed crawlspace while a specialist walked us through a typical inspection.

The homeowner expressed how a crawlspace like this gives him peace of mind, but also makes it easier for plumbers and electricians to work on his home.

Philip Neal, General Manager of the Birmingham office, explained how everything his team does is centered around each customer.

“Everything we do has a process, and that includes taking care of the customer. Not only are we going to do a first class job, but we’re going to call every customer and make sure we did.”

AFS’ top priority is providing high-quality home repair solutions and personalized service across communities.

Assistant Manager Abe Austin said that a job well done ultimately depends on if you made the customer happy.

“A lot of people worry too much on the day to day sale, but if you just focus on making someone happy and fixing their home, everything else pans out.”

“I think what makes AFS stand out is our process. We make the people a focal point and our warranties back that up. Not only while the job is going on, but after.”

John Austin Jones, Service Staff, AFS

As recognized leaders in the industry, AFS strives to not just put a band-aid on a problem but to fix it permanently. After specialists complete a service, they come back to the home a year later to make sure everything is working properly.

“As long as they want us there, we’ll be there.”
