Hi, my name is Tom Pelletier and I'm the founder and owner of The Foundation Works. I'd like to give you some of the backstory on The Foundation Works so you can get an idea of what we're about and how we do business. For many years, I made my living as a home inspector. During that time, I inspected thousands of properties and their foundations. I found a disturbing trend... most of the foundations I inspected (85% by actual survey) had sub-standard bolting jobs. Overall, I found the foundation systems of the housing stock riddled with other low-quality workmanship as well. I came to realize that the physical restrictions of customer access to the foundation area, coupled with a lack of skilled technical delivery happening in the industry, had led to an overall decreased standard of workmanship that had largely gone unchecked. What this meant was that in an earthquake, many homeowners were in danger of losing their homes. Out of that discovery, The Foundation Works was born.
