Expert Foundation Repair Contractors

In 2001, Abacus Foundation Repair was founded.  The goal was simple; honesty, integrity and affordability.  Now, I’m sure many of you are wondering how all of this correlates with our name.  Well, an Abacus is a calculation tool used by sliding beads (counters) along rods in order to perform mathematical functions.  Therefore, we became Abacus Foundation Repair...
