    We had a major problem we did not know how to fix it for a number of years. A neighbor connected us with Dave Kerlin. Dave met with us and gave an original bid and then helped coordinate and educate us on the entire process. He did an exceptional job of making the process understandable. We particularly appreciated his responsiveness, patience and genuine concern for the dilemma that we were facing. It's rare do you have someone show the level of interest in helping us as he did. We could not have been more pleased. We were also very fond of the crew that did the job. Victor, the foreman, was also exceptional. He clearly knew what he was doing and explained things in ways that made perfect sense. I have very rarely done any reviews but I wanted to go out of my way to make sure others know of the good experience we had with the staff at Davenport Foundation.

    AMERICAN FORK, UT

    Dave Kerlin was very personable, extremely knowledgeable and helpful when conducting detailed site visit. He provided me the opportunity to visit a home where a crew was in process of lifting a large porch foundation several inches. Watching this process helped alleviate any fears and concerns with the lifting/pier process. Dave came to our home after the lifting process was completed and worksite was restored to original condition to ensure our complete satisfaction.

    Customer Testimonial

              The installer was very honest and let me know what was being done to lift my driveway. He was friendly and I loved his work. He even gave me tips on how to minimize any future repairs, and gave me advice on the others areas of my driveway that needed lifting. I recommend hiring Davenport Foundation Repair, and would use them again in the future.

    Craig A. of Springville, UT

    Customer Testimonial

              I don't write reviews very often and I rarely give 5 stars for any review, but the Davenport Team led by Nate and Kevin deserve a 5 star rating and a RAISE! We needed a sump pump installed. I received 3-quotes and the Davenport price was in the middle. What caught my attention was they said they could complete the job in 1-day. The other 2 bids said it would take 3-days and 4 to 5-days. So I questioned Davenport about this and they stated with confidence that they would have 4-guys on my job and they would be finished by 5:30pm. Well, as exactly stated, they had 4-guys work the full day on my project and they were finished at 5:20pm. Their work was great, they were very careful to cover everything in our finished based prior to doing their work and they were very courteous in all of their communication. Through this process they also educated me about a "void" that exists under my driveway and explained how that can be repaired, so I will be using Davenport again. YOU WILL NOT GO WRONG USING DAVENPORT! VERY IMPRESSED!

              Admittedly, I rarely take the time to write a review and I should more often when a meet a professional who goes above and beyond. This was the case with Dave Kerlin at Davenport. I hired Dave to help me with some foundation settling issues on a home we were buying. He was so knowledgeable, fair, and professional. He took tons of time to be thorough in his analysis and was willing to explain it all to me and answer all of my questions. His experience and knowledge was obvious and I'm so grateful I hired him.

    This homeowner called us from American Fork, UT. She was concerned about the cracks in her garage's brick wall. Step-like cracks in between bricks are one of the top signs of a failing foundation. We sent out a specialist to assess the problem
