Erosion Control in St Louis, MO
You've seen erosion where major excavation is underway, but construction sites aren't the only areas where erosion occurs. Our home landscapes are also susceptible to runoff and erosion of topsoil. At best, erosion is unsightly. At worst, erosion is expensive. Topsoil, with its organic matter, beneficial microorganisms and nutrients, washes away. Erosion can also be dangerous as poisonous substances such as fertilizer, pesticides and petroleum products run off our yards and eventually end up in our water supply. Erosion can also undermine your driveways, patios, sidewalks, and porches, causing cracks and other problems.
Just because you don't see gullies or mudslides doesn't mean that erosion isn't occurring. The process can be very subtle. Look for symptoms such as exposed roots, signs of splashing of soil or mud on pavement. You may not see it on your own property, but runoff from your yard may be evident farther down the street. If your precious topsoil is washing away, you need erosion control help!

Mr. Evans is very warm and informative. He gave me so much information on how water gets into your foundation. He is not into taking your money. He will recommend what you need done and there is no pressure. I will definitely be contacting him again in the future. I greatly appreciate his wisdom and great service.
I got several quotes for french drains that went completely around my house. Bob Evans was the only one to study the basement, really study the yard during the quote. He runs his own team, is on the job, instead of larger companies where the owner is not at all involved. you get all his experience through the job, instead of just getting a random foreman or team--that is a key reason I am glad I chose them. They did an excellent job and were courteous, prompt, and really cleaned up the site nicely. They test every drain as they go and get the grade right. I recomend them without any reservations. Their pricing was competitive.
Excellent work! Fantastic owner!
We called Foundation Protection Services for a drainage issue on the side of our house last fall. The owner Bob and his crew r wonderful to work with. They r professional, polite and truly deliver on the old adage, "The customer is always right." Bob is the friendliest, easiest person to talk to and he assures that u r completely satisfied with every aspect of the job. We were so happy with the work he did in the fall that we called him back this Spring to fix our backyard too! Could not recommend a contractor more highly than this company.
Excellent work and a pleasure to work with!
I had a great experience with FPS. The owner, Bob Evans, is an absolute professional, and a genuinely nice person. Bob enjoys his work and takes pride in everything he does. Bob met with me several times and answered every question I had. He came up with a reasonable proposal that accomplished everything I was looking for. His price was very fair for the work. About a week after the drainage work was complete, we had a heavy rain and I "caught" Bob at the house inspecting the work to make sure everything was ok. I highly recommend Bob and his team!
We were selling our house and needed a downspout extension installed VERY quickly(Within 2 weeks). Even though they had a backlog, they worked on the weekend to get the project completed by my closing date. They were able to come look at the house the same day I called to get us a free estimate. The install looks great, and was done right the first time. Very friendly and easy to work with, and also had very good prices. I would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family.
Amazing Results & Excellent Customer Service
After noticing some pooling of water around my foundation and with plans to finish my basement, I contacted Foundation Protection Services to evaluate these issues. I arranged an appointment with Mr. Evans (Owner/Operator of this company). Mr. Evans came to my home, reviewed my concerns, examined my property and explained to me the potential for water in my basement and suggested the following preventive steps be taken: Downspout Extensions Sump Pump Discharge Extension At a time that was convenient for me, a crew arrived and performed the above suggested measures. Workers were extremely knowledgeable, polite and worked quickly to repair the identified problems. After just a few hours, the extensions had been installed, trenches were filled (sod replaced on top) and excess dirt was distributed evenly around my foundation to improve the grade. The result was excellent and there was virtually nothing that had to be done to follow up. I was impressed with the quality of the work and at $600, I felt I had gotten a real bargain. I am moving ahead now with my plans to finish my basement without worrying about water coming in. I would highly recommend this company for any foundation water problem!
Work was excellent, I couldn't be more pleased.
Reasonably priced, outstanding knowledge, hard workers
I used Foundation Protection Services to complete two different jobs at my house. I initially called Bob because water was seeping into my basement walk out door everytime we got a heavy rain. Bob installed a french drain along the backside of my house to fix this. On this same project, he tied a gutter downspout into the drain, and ran the line out deep into the backyard away from the house. Working with Bob was excellent. He is a true professional, and took time to walk around my house with me showing potential problem spots and educating me on how rain water flows around my house and the basics of hydrostatic pressure. My basement has been bone dry since this installation. A perfect fix. On the second job (much smaller), Bob buried a gutter downspout in my front yard and ran it out well away from the front of the house. I have had ZERO problems with water in my house since I hired Bob. And if I ever have an issue again, he'll be the first person I call. Call Bob before you call Helitech or any comparable company, because he could save you literally thousands of dollars and create a more efficient solution for water in your basement. Highly recommend.
Better price than the competition and perfect execution. Friendly too. Can't beat that !
Wonderful service, promises delivered
Every time there was a big rainstorm we had water in the basement of our newly purchased house. Foundation Protection Services came out to take a look, made a great assessment of the situation and gave us a very reasonable quote. They were quick, friendly and professional. We had new French drains put in (our old ones were not done correctly) and the work was done in no time and without damage to our yard. A few weeks after our new drains were put in we had a terrible rainstorm again and our basement stayed completely dry. Talk about being a happy customer!
