Atlas Piers operates under the leadership of President Wayne Farris, who launched the business in 1987. Throughout the last two decades, Atlas Piers has grown in reputation and size because of focusing and specializing on one thing -foundation support and, in particular, piering.
While other companies have entered the market and attempted to incorporate piering as a sideline. We have stuck to what makes us the best choice. We do one thing and we do it well.
Our mission is simple:.. To serve our clients with their best interests at heart, even if it means diagnosing the problem and eliminating our services. We do this because it is our ultimate desire to glorify God in all that we do, be it personal or professional.

Our home is in the mountains of Big Canoe, GA - that's the good news. The bad news...our porch was slowly sinking. Atlas Piers came out, surveyed the job, told us what was needed, gave us a written... estimate, and came to work - on the agreed upon date & time. Their crew was absolutely exceptional: courteous, diligent, and above all efficient. We are not easily impressed with most contractors - these fellows, and the company are absolutely phenomenal!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
I chose Atlas Piers over 5 other companies gave me estimates. It was the very best choice I could have made. I was impressed with Wayne Farris initially, and then as I checked references, read reviews, dealt with the office staff, I knew this was for me. They were explicit, patient, and I liked that they were experts and did nothing but piers. The crew and supervisor was on time, efficient, easy to communicate with, cleaned up after the job, explained everything. They worked with me every step of the way and I have no inside cracks as a result of the 8 piers and lift of the house, to date. The original foundation cracks that were there before were closed and sealed inside and out. This company is truly professional as well as humane! A rare quality, they treat the customer with respect and understanding. Thank you for a job well done. It's not a job you ever want to need, but it is mandatory if you want to ever sell. That is the return on your money. The price was fair and totally warranted. Thank you Wayne and Karen. Anita L.
Johnathan with Atlas came out for what I thought would be quoting us to add piers and lift our house. Rather than just comparing our house to a typical lift, he investigated the footings, posts, and damage patterns. It turns out that we don't need to lift our foundation, but rather to replace 2 posts that were installed incorrectly. He told me we don't need his company at all, and recommended 2 companies that could perform the work we needed. I would likely have agreed to a lift and still had the real problem if he hadnt identified it for us. We probably saved 4-5 thousand dollars. Thanks Johnathan and Atlas!
We hired Atlas Piers to repair our house's foundation. One side of the house had been slowly sinking into the ground and the bricks had separated from several windows at least 1 to 2 inches, leaving gaping holes between the window frame and bricks. The companies who gave us bids all said they could stabilize the house but only Atlas Piers said it could bring the windows and bricks back together. Although I doubted the house would ever look the same again, Chad, Atlas Piers' VP, gave me hope this was possible and agreed to lower his price to meet the price of the closest competitor. Once the work began, additional structural problems were discovered. This is where Atlas's expertise really came into play. I doubt there is another company that would have made the effort Atlas did to get the work done as least costly as possible. The easiest solution would have been to force the supplemental footing, which would have been more expensive. Through experience and expertise, Atlas found a better more cost effective way. Not only has the house been stabilized but it looks almost exactly as it did before it began to "come apart." I highly recommend Atlas. They are extremely competent and very honest. They seemed genuinely concerned about my house, kept me informed about what needed to be done and quickly accommodated various requests about the work's scheduling. In the end, I felt like I had hired the best and a very special company.
I contracted with Atlas to repair a foundation that settled. This was the smoothest transaction I have ever seen. The work was done exactly as stated and in the time frame given. I live quite a distance away and did not see the work done. Friends of mine followed up and were extremely pleased with the quality and speed of the work. It is very encouraging to me to know that this company manifests such diligence and integrity when no one is looking. I highly recommend Atlas Piers. Many thanks to Jonathan, Susan and Karen for their open communication and following up on matters pertaining to this work. 2 years after the above work was completed my tenant claimed that backfill was needed where piers were placed. I called Atlas to discuss. Atlas went to the job site and confirmed that a downspout too close to the house caused some dirt to wash away. Atlas provided pics and video to confirm that the quality of work they performed was exceptional and enduring. Many thanks to Wayne, Susan and Karen once again. No other provider of this type of work is needed other than Atlas.
I had a foundation problem in one of my rental properties and Atlas Piers got the job done. They were professional and had great customer service (they came back to make an adjustment with no additional charge).
Jonathan gave me a quote for stabilizing and lifting my sinking garage foundation 3 years ago (2007). He said at the time that I could just observe it to see if it got worse. I appreciated this honesty, even though it might cost him business. It got worse, so I requoted the work to Atlas and others. Jonathan was, again, very good to work with on the front end. I chose Atlas. However, the date got put off a day after I planned to take time off work. The crew that did the work was very diligent and hard working. They took good care not to damage my landscaping. However, after placing the piers, they lifted the house before I could observe it and before Jonathan arrived. In the end, they lifted one section too much, causing some non-structural cracking and separation issues in the room above the garage and around the windows and garage door. I don't believe the crew properly considered all the potential issues as the house was lifted.
Unfortunately this was an instance where things did not go 100% perfect. The exterior of the house met our expectations, but as this customer stated - the interior showed some minor sheetrock damage. This does occur on occasion. The crew, however, did what they intended to do which was to close the exterior cracking in the brick veneer with the understanding that brick veneer is much more expensive and harder to repair than interior sheetrock. The superintendent on site made the call. It was unfortunate that the communication was not complete with the homeowner as Mike was extremely gracious, very good to work with, and a very nice guy from Georgia Tech. We asked if we could come back and do anything to make things better but Mike declined. We continue to strive to be the best piering company in Atlanta and will address these issues to ensure they do not happen in the future.
This was the second time we used Atlas Piers. The second was just as great as the first. Both jobs were done exactly as promised and ultimately became a very effective way of stabilizing the problem areas of our home. The first time we used them to stabilize the foundation on a corner of our home that was problematic due to its proximity to a water source-this included a chimney. The second time we used them in a different home to underpin a chimney that was unstable (also due to water & poor drainage issues). Both times the jobs were done with professionalism from the original quote till the finish. The clean up was thorough also. I really hope we never have an occasion to use them again but if we do, they will be the only company we call. They do amazing work!!! Very pleased.
I met Jonathan a sales and system engineer for Atlas Piers yesterday to do an estimate for a foundation job for one of my clients and before he was finished I was completely impressed with his honesty, integrity and competency. Jonathan made this an easy choice. I would highly recommend them to all.
We had several companies assess a foundation problem that we had at our home. We found that Atlas Piers was the most scientific in their approach to the problem. The opinions received from various other companies only focused on what could be seen. Atlas Piers took the extra step to investigate the unseen. Not only did they inform me of the role that they could play in fixing the problem, but informed me about an additional problem that another specialist would need to address. Their work was professional and timely and I did not find that their charges were out of line based on other estimates received. I chose them because of their approach in investigating the problem and the fact that piers is their only specialty. I am thankful that I found them.
My house had settled and the walls inside were cracking along with large cracks going up the side of the brick on the house. Atlas Piers of Atlanta came out, and did a professional assessment. I was very impressed with their employees. They provided the structural foundational support for the house including metal steel support beams in the basement, additional foundation support walls in the basement, and then installed six foundation piers that lifted the whole house 2 1/2 inches. They did what they said they would do at a very reasonable price. Also the foundation repair has a fifteen year warranty. I would highly recommend anyone who needs a foundation support project done on their house call Atlas Piers of Atlanta. They are honest, professional, and deliver a high value product.
Years ago when I became a realtor in North Atlanta, I asked around of my associates to find their recommendations for the best service providers in many different categories. Atlas Piers was always mentioned as a "top drawer organization" in their service category. Many years later I'm now that realtor that always educates new realtors about Atlas Piers. They have integrity and knowledge, work smart and hard, and are reliable. Their finished product is one that consistently adds value to my clients' homes as well as peace of mind for the owners. I highly recommend them and have even recommended them to close family members, where once again the end result was total satisfaction.
I don't think I have ever worked with a more professional company. They were quick to respond, very professional, friendly by phone, in person and through email and they always showed-up when they said they would. Their original price quote was above that of another comparable company, but they wanted my business and they dropped their price. I highly recommend them.
From the initial estimate visit when everything was thoroughly evaluated and explained down to the finished product, our experience with Atlas was very professional and pleasant. This is a quality company with wonderful values that show up in every person we had contact with. We had three piers installed to support a center garage beam that was inadequately constructed by a local homebuilder several years ago. And while we were not thrilled to be paying for the repair ourselves, working with Atlas made the process much more pleasant than I ever expected. We had a couple other quotes from other companies, but Atlas' reputation preceded them, and with good reason. I highly recommend this company!
I had a lot of foundation repair work done on my house in April 2010. The crew, crew foreman, and the people at Atlas Piers were great to work with. Anytime I had a question they responded immediately. I highly recommend them.
The first time I called Atlas they recommended I not do anything at the current time, which really impressed me as other contractors were trying to push various solutions. 18 months later a structural engineer referred me back to Atlas. They were awesome, from specing out the work, ensuring we understood the options to the execution of the repairs... completely painless. Would definitely recommend and would do business with again.
Atlas installed piers to raise my brick front porch which had slowly been pulling away from the front of our house. They raised and stabilized it and neatly filled the small space left with mortar. They did such a good job with the mortar that I let them fill all the mortar that had fallen out over the years on my steps.
