Homeowner Testimonials

“During some recent heavy rainfall my Leawood basement flooded with several inches of water. Gordon Energy came to the rescue. I researched them on the internet and found good reviews and their history to be unblemished. I was extremely impressed with the expertise of both the initial evaluator and installation crew. Gordon Energy broke out my basement floor and installed the channel track system & drainage pipe connecting to my existing sump pit, installed drainage pipes in my window wells, a battery backup sump pump and repaired 2 foundation cracks that were leaking. Since the repairs I have had no problems. I highly recommend Gordon Energy & Drainage.”

“I want to follow up with our conversation and let you know I am very pleased with Gordon Energy. Brandon and his team were very professional and did a great job in cleaning up at the end of the job. The entire team was very helpful in explaining things and answering any questions we had. This is the second “fixer upper” I have purchased and I have kept a list of contractors that I will use again and a list of those that I will not use again. Congratulations, Gordon Energy is on the call again list! Hopefully I never have to use you again but I will call if I have any drainage or foundation repair issues. Joel Chambers Leawood, KS ”

“I don’t often write to commend company employees, but wanted to in this case. From the first phone call to Dan Knappen, I felt like you had a great employee. I got a quote right away that had several options and every time I would call, he was so helpful and patient and took the time to explain everything. He stopped by the job site and offered even more suggestions. We were very nervous building a house with a walk-out basement and wanted to make sure we did everything right to keep water out. I feel very confident about the work that was done and the extra mile that Dan went to for my husband and I. Thank you!”

“I wanted to send this letter to you to thank you for the work Jim and Kevin did at our home in Baldwin. They were very cordial and showed very good work ethic. Also, we were amazed on how clean the left the exterior and interior of our home! We couldn’t believe they took their shoes off or wore the cover boots. I will use Gordon for any work I will need at our home and will recommend you to anyone that I know looking for basement work. Feel free to have anyone call us if you are in need of a reference. We would be more than happy to speak to your customers. Best of luck in 2008!! Sincerely, ”

“I have recently used Gordon Energy to have work done at my home. I was referred to them by a neighbor and found the good report she gave me to be true, starting with the phone call to schedule an appointments. At the appointment Dan addressed the issues and the remedies were explained clearly. The services were done in a timely and professional manner and at a fair and competitive cost. I feel integrity was shown from the initial phone call all the way through to the last clean up. ”

“My husband and I were really impressed with the foundation repair work this company did. We met with the Bill, the Foundation Repair Division’s General Manager, who went through, step by step what should be done and why. When work started, he kept us informed and answered all our questions. The crew was very professional and they worked well together. The clean up of both the basement and the yard was exceptional. We are very, very pleased with Gordon Energy and Drainage!”

“We recently experienced a basement full of water & were getting estimates from $10-20k for outside drains and much more for inside drains to fix the problem. There was one other bid for $1,500.00, I believe, for an additional sump pump. One other guy told us all we needed was a couple truckloads of dirt and he’d do that for us for $1,200.00. Anyway, to make a long story short, Jim May from your company came out to give us a bid also. Not only was he professional, honest, patient, friendly, knowledgeable and courteous, but he also took the time to answer all my questions (which there were many), and explained in detail everything that needed to be done. He said he wanted to drill a few holes to see what was going on underneath the basement, which he did. He came back the next day to look & there was definitely water standing under the basement floor. He then drilled some holes inside the sump pump enclosure. There was some blockage which he determined that there was concrete in the way so that the water wasn’t getting to the sump pump properly. Bottom line, he jack hammered in front of the sump pump, loosened up the concrete there, put in another pipe and some gravel and then covered it back up w/concrete. The total bill was much less than the other bids we had gotten & we were tickled pink about it. Granted we haven’t had the amounts of rain that we had b/4 this happened, but we have had some & haven’t had any water in our basement. We do realize that this isn’t a guaranteed fix, but it was worth a try to us because it could be the answer and we will have saved thousands. Please tell Jim thanks again for us. He’s definitely an asset to your company & I will recommend you all to everyone I know. It’s so nice to know that there are still honest, reliable companies out there that care about people & not just making a buck.”

“We are extremely pleased with the work Gordon Energy did for us. For many years, we have had a problem with water standing on the side of our house and leaking into the basement after heavy rains. We also had a large crack in the foundation on the other side of the house. We contacted Gordon to see if a French drain would help with our problem and to see what they recommended regarding the crack. Randy came out (on the date and time agreed) and looked over our situation. We were very impressed with Randy—there was no sales pitch”. He listened to our story and our ideas and made suggestions for how we could improve our situation. He emailed us a quote on the following day. The workmen showed up on time on the date scheduled and completed the work in 1-1/2 days. They cleaned up very well after the work and replaced our sod and replanted flowers that they had to dig up. In fact, you can hardly tell where they dug up the yard to place the drain. They routed the downspouts on that side of the house underground so we could get rid of the ugly extensions we were using to try to divert the water. They also repaired the basement crack and one in the garage. These were repaired from the inside by injection so there was no need to dig up the foundation. Even though there is no guarantee that the drain will cure our water problem, Gordon did the work they promised to do in a prompt and courteous manner. If we need to have further work, such as a sump installed, we will definitely call Gordon Energy. In fact, we will be calling them soon regarding our attic fan. By the way, we did contact two other companies. One company never returned our calls. The other company made an appointment with us but no one showed up, nor did they call to apologize or reset the appointment.”

“Our lot had serious drainage issues. We contracted with another drainage installer; their solution did not resolve the problem. A neighbor recommended Gordon Energy & Drainage to us. They designed and installed a system that solved the drainage problem. We highly recommend their services. Randy and his crew are the best.”

Stanley CaldwellOverland Park, KS

“Gordon Energy was accommodating in providing us with great service from the very first call we made. They were friendly, professional, and prompt in scheduling the work to be done. The technician did an excellent job installing our back-up sump that we scheduled him to come back and do additional work on our main sump.”

“I was recently looking for some work to be done to my sister-in-law’s house in Kansas City. After a rather extensive search, I settled on Gordon Energy and Drainage. They were eager for the business, good communicators, knowledgeable, and oriented toward understanding and helping the customer at a reasonable cost to the customer. Also, having this work done “long distance”, I had a need to trust and respect them and I did. My primary contacts were Todd and Dan, mostly Dan. After reaching an agreement, the work was done on timely basis and it was of high quality. In addition, I was well-informed all along the way. For all these reasons, I would use them again and I highly recommend them to others.”
