About Foundation Supportworks by Baker's

Since 1975, Baker's has customized over 10,000 structural & foundation repair projects. Building a reputation with mainly residential clients, Baker’s has addressed bowing, cracking and leaning foundation and retaining wall problems as well as foundation settlement and mine subsidence issues. They forged relationships with many product manufacturers finding the best solutions on the market.

In 2011, the company changed leadership to the second generation owner Brian Baker. Brian set aggressive growth goals and added more product lines. The deep foundation helical product lines opened the door to new construction projects including tieback and micro piles. In 2014, concrete flatwork solutions were added with the addition of polyurethane grouting. The demand for these new product lines thrust Baker’s into new commercial opportunities.

Despite the rich history of repair work, the residential brand hindered the growth of the commercial division. The need to separate the companies was clear. In Jan 2015, Foundation Supportworks by Baker's was born. Foundation Supportworks by Baker's is a niche geotechnical solutions firm. The company’s staff has a combined 50 years’ experience addressing geotechnical issues. Foundation Supportworks by Baker's specializes in commercial, industrial and heavy highway projects including Slab Jacking, Polyurethane & Cellular Concrete Grouting, Flowable Fill, Utility Line Oil & Gas Erosion Control, Polyurethane Trench Breakers, Helical Tiebacks, and Helical/Micro Piles alternative to Caissons.
