As a family-owned business, Adams Foundation Repair & Waterproofing believes that family comes first. Founder and owner Justin Adams started his own company for two key reasons—to be able to provide honest and affordable foundation repair and waterproofing services to other families and to be able to earn a living and support his own family with a growing and successful business. Justin has been married for 18 years and has six children.
Of course, a lot of companies claim to be family-oriented but don’t really hold those values as strongly as they say. But at Adams, business is truly a family affair. Justin’s brother, Nathan, is the general manager and his nephew, Andy (Nathan’s son) oversees the mudjacking and radon mitigation services. On top of that, Justin’s dad handles fleet maintenance for all of the company’s trucks.
Justin says that he takes the responsibility of supporting not only his immediate family, but also the families of all his employees quite seriously. In fact, he says it’s been one of the greatest privileges of owning his own company.
“I’m really not in this for myself,” Justin says. “I know that there are a lot of families that count on this business—including the families of our customers—to do great work. That’s what drives us.”
