Customer Reviews



  • “I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you have done to help us remodel our kitchen and paint the other parts of the house. I still find it hard to believe it’s all over and done. You coordinated everything perfectly and the last painter left just a couple of hours before our out of town company arrived. This was an emergency, and I so appreciate your getting in touch with the painter to come back and fix the disaster in the walls, which occurred with removing the curtain rods in the living room and replacing them with new rods. This was just one example of your willingness and the painters’ to go above and beyond what was asked of them and we really appreciate it. Everyone did a great job and were very professional and neat. I will highly recommend your services to anyone. Thanks again for everything and please relay our thanks to everyone who was involved in this project. We sincerely appreciate it!”

  • “Alan is a true professional. He and his staff were punctual, finished on time, and did a great job. When we had a problem having our new plasma set installed, Alan stepped up and had his team pick it up, deliver and install the set. Thanks Alan and Firm Foundation Construction.”

  • “My experience with Alan Smith and Firm Foundation Construction was fantastic. This was our first experience having a home built and Alan helped every step of the way. He was very good about listening to what we wanted to see in the home and was equally great about explaining what would be achievable and within budget. We were overall very happy with the entire construction process. Although very minimal, at any point where we had concerns or issues, Alan resolved them quickly and efficiently.

    Our home has been completed for over two years now and we continue to enjoy it as much as the day we moved in. I still have some questions from time to time and Alan is always willing and available to talk or answer questions. My wife and I would highly recommend Alan and Firm Foundation Construction!”

  • “It is a pleasure to write a letter of recommendation regarding Alan Smith of Firm Foundation Construction. It is easy to convey my impressions of his performance as the general contractor with whom we built our home almost three years ago. Alan Smith is a talented, experienced, level headed, and thoughtful man who is absolutely even in his demeanor. I have never seen him upset by anything. He appeared equally at home and effective with us, subcontractors, banking officials, and everyone else involved in the building process.


    Before the first excavation on our land, Alan gave me a timeline for work and completion of our home, accurate estimates as to possible costs, and even computer generated mock-up pictures of a particular area in the house that we struggled with in design. In every area, he was creative, respectful, and honest. He handled our meetings with kindness, patience and the highest integrity.


    I should also note that during the first several months we were in our new house, there was no problem too small to get Alan’s personal attention. These generally insignificant issues were all resolved quickly, easily, and without any fuss until none remained. That meant the world to us as this was our second home, and we live over two hours away.


    We could not be more delighted with our Tennessee home. The quality of construction is impeccable. Our guests tend to comment as much on the quality of construction as they do on the design and colors. I have no reservation whatsoever in recommending Alan Smith and his staff at Firm Foundation Construction for any building project. Alan is a true professional and our overall experience with his company exceeded our expectations in every way.”
