About Eagle Foundation Company
Houston Slab Repair Innovator
Eagle Foundation Co. is one of the originators of slab foundation repair in Houston, Texas. Installing Bell Piers beneath slabs was a relatively new technology in the 1960s. In fact, there was no power source small enough to work beneath a foundation that could turn a drill bit or an auger twelve feet into the earth. Eagle was one of the first to convert a large chain saw to a drilling power source by removing the chain and installing a sprocket receptor that received the head of the auger drive long before the use of the Little Beaver Drill that was mainly used for fence post holes until a larger hydraulic version of the original was made and used to drill pier holes.
Foundation Repair is a skill that was virtually unknown in the 1950s and 1960s. The technology was usually passed down from Father to Son, and the procedure was protected. Multiple crews were used to repair a foundation to prevent any worker from learning the entire procedure. One crew excavated the tunnels to get beneath the edge of the foundation, drill the holes, and pour the concrete. Another crew leveled the foundation, and a third crew performed the cleanup. The use of multiple crews was practiced for many years. The bell pier was the standard system used to support or level a slab/pier and beam foundation. The friction piling method of repair changed the entire industry by reducing the total cost of repairs.
A hydraulic power source uses the weight of the foundation slab or beam as leverage to push the pile segments deep into the earth, engaging more friction the deeper they are pushed, until the friction exceeds the weight of the slab or beam, and the pile will go no deeper. This occurrence is known in the Industry as “refusal.” The refusal is dictated by the weight of the foundation and the resistance of the different layers of soil strata.
The foundation repair industry has grown in the past fifty years. When Eagle Foundation went into business, there were only four other such companies in Houston. Of the original five, only three remain, though there are countless other newer foundation repair companies in Houston today. Most claim to have been in business for many generations.

“When my home inspectors see a foundation problem they always recommend Eagle Foundation as the first company the client should call. Giving out a referral can be a tricky business, if it doesn’t go well, it reflects back on you. However, with Eagle Foundation we know that the client will be taken care of and the job done right.”
– Joseph Thompson
“I would like to express my appreciation for the professionalism and hard work that was evident while your crew was on our property. They stayed on the go virtually all day under extreme heat and finished in record time. It was obvious to me early on that this crew had a great deal of experience and worked well as a team. I did not observe even one incident of horseplay or goofing off, which made me feel comfortable about my having selected your company to do this very important job. I know that this is the best foundation that this house has ever seen in all of its 100 plus years of existence and we are looking forward to enjoying it for many more years to come. Thanks again!”
