Groundworks® is Laying the Foundation for Excellent Service


Founded in 2017 and headquartered in Virginia Beach, Groundworks® has experienced exponential growth. With nearly 50 locations nationally, the company seeks out only the best in service to be part of its growing organization. While each subsidiary is independently operated, Groundworks is the owner, combining national reputation with local reach and expertise in the foundation and water management solutions industry. 

Locally awarded, laureled by HomeAdvisor and Angi’s List, and accredited by the Better Business Bureau, Groundworks Companies strive to give you superior customer service and top-notch work from start to finish. It’s no surprise given that one of the company’s core values is: Deliver quality through great service. As a testament, all its subsidiaries have earned the 2022 Pulse of the City News Customer Satisfaction Award on their individual merits. 

Groundworks Companies provide residential foundation and water management solutions, including foundation repair, basement waterproofing, crawl space repair and encapsulation, plumbing, gutter installation, and concrete lifting services. Since inception, its combined brands have helped nearly 1.5 million homeowners protect and repair their most valuable asset — their home. 

To ensure customers receive the best results, done right and on time, Groundworks develops its own solutions and manufactures its own products. This allows them to constantly innovate the best possible solution while raising the standards of home repair services across the industry. 

In addition, having local subsidiaries means the teams are in touch with the climate, soil type, construction trends and other factors within a specific region. That expertise allows the company to tailor long-lasting repair solutions for each home, backed by long-term warranties. 

“Our comprehensive solutions are engineered to fix the problem, permanently,” Groundworks says. “We provide our customers peace of mind and will stop at nothing until the job is done right. That is what makes our brands the most trusted in the industry.” 

Everything boils down to the company’s culture and its core values, which include: 

  • We work until it’s done right

  • Build open and honest relationships with communication 

  • Deliver quality through great service 

  • Embrace and drive growth 

  • Everyone puts their boots on the same way 

  • Embrace meritocracy 

Embraced from the leadership on down, these core values guide everything at Groundworks and its subsidiaries, leading to a culture founded on excellent service. 

Their leaders’ growth mindset doesn’t end at their bottom line. In April 2022, Groundworks announced its charitable contribution of $100,000 to Habitat for Humanity International, securing and providing the financial means to build strong foundations for families and well as homes. The donation will fund home builds in the local cities and towns that Groundworks Companies serves. Additionally, Groundworks will support local Habitat for Humanity organizations by mobilizing employees to volunteer and help raise local and national awareness. 

“Being in the home services business, we know that a person’s most valuable asset is their home. It protects a family’s memories and provides them the safety and security they need to dream about their future,” said Matt Malone, Founder and CEO of Groundworks. “At Groundworks, we are incredibly proud of the work we do to protect people’s homes in neighborhoods across the country. Today, we are proud to extend our community reach to help families build a safe and decent home where they can create new memories.” 

The Groundworks Companies are the best of the best. When you choose Groundworks Companies, you choose more than just standard home repair services. You choose a team of experts going above and beyond to protect your home, for good.
