During the week of September 19th, more than 50 foundation repair contractors from throughout the United States and Canada attended training at Foundation Supportworks in Omaha, NE. Throughout the week, attendees were trained in the areas of marketing, sales and installation of Foundation Supportworks products. In addition to classroom and field training, the attendees also benefited from the opportunity to network with other foundation repair companies throughout North America.
The four-day installation training included hands-on training at several different jobsites, where the attendees received firsthand experience installing push piers, helical piers, slab piers, Geo-Lock™ wall anchors, and PowerBraces™. The installation training also included 5 hours of classroom training where the attendees learned about the more technical aspects of the product installation.
The three-day sales training covered topics such as product features and benefits, interviewing the customer to learn about their wants and needs, proper diagnosing and inspection, and presenting solutions to the customer. Sales training attendees were also encouraged to bring their laptops to receive hands-on training on the exclusive Foundation Supportworks sales presentation and proposal generating software program.

The Foundation Supportworks training and development team recently traveled to Chicago, IL to conduct a product orientation and sales training for the sales staff at Perma-Seal Basement Systems. Perma-Seal has been in business since 1979 and is one of the largest waterproofing and foundation repair contractors in the world. With over 189 employees and 3 offices throughout the Chicagoland area, Perma-Seal has the workforce and experience to handle almost any residential or commercial foundation problem.
Last week, Perma-Seal’s sales team of more than 45 System Design Specialists participated in continuing education in the areas of foundation underpinning, basement wall repair, and crawlspace stabilization in the Chicago area. The Chicago foundation repair company’s sales team was trained on product design and application as well as in the area of diagnosis of structural problems.
Foundation Supportworks is excited to have Chicago-area-based Perma-Seal Basement Systems as a part of their network of the best foundation repair contractors in North America.
Midwest Basement Systems was recently awarded a project to install 66 new construction helical piles for a school renovation project in Leon, IA. The piles will be installed to support the new foundations as well as a structural slab. Helical piers were the perfect solution for this project because of limited access adjacent and within the existing building. The project also requires that a load test be conducted to verify the pile capacity and performance (settlement) under load. Tim Heady, owner of Midwest Basement Systems, recently hired a new employee, Mark Rasmusson, to manage his commercial foundation division. Mark’s engineering background and construction experience will be a great asset to Midwest Basement Systems on these types of projects.
