"An initial online quote was quickly followed by a site visit by a very friendly and informative site surveyor. The work was scheduled a few weeks after payment of the deposit and the work was carried out very efficiently by the geopolymer injection team in just a few hours using laser measurement tools to detect when the wall had lifted following the stabilisation of the foundations. The site was left as clean as it was found . Within a week of the payment of the balance outstanding I received the Insurance backed guarantee, 10 year guarantee and CSA certificate"

"We had an alarming crack in our London Edwardian house internal brick wall which developed suddenly for no obvious reason (though we suspected a nearby over-zealous demolition job). The structural engineer who inspected it thought it had to be something local under the wall as there were no other signs of cracking in the house, and recommended underpinning...if only there was a way of just pushing the wall up again, he said. Well, then we found Uretek (now Geobar) and saw the seemingly miraculous video of the crack closing up on their website. We researched them and asked around - to cut a long storey short, from initial visit by the rep to the actual (day long only) job on site we got excellent service and even watched our crack closing up. The only prep we had to do was to take up the floorboards on one side of the wall they were treating. We are delighted and very relieved not to have had to go through the hassle of concrete underpinning (which, as it turns out, may not have worked as the 'soft' patch of clay was well below the level that the underpin would have gone)."

"My client had a problem for which certain solutions had been put forward which proved impractical. I contacted Geobear and they came to site, put forward a scheme and a cost, both were acceptable, when they came to site they did exactly as they had said they would to mine and the clients satisfaction,"

"Had a difficult problem with foundations that had caused movement in walls of house,for various reasons underpinning was difficult,messy and expensive.Geobear surveyor responded quickly,offered his solution which we accepted and the work was completed very quickly with no mess or evidence of the origional problem showing.So far so good,only ten days since work was completed but looking fine so far,no reason to think this will change.Thank you Geobear"

"Very responsive to email and process explained well prior to being carried out. Appear to be no issues following solution. Communication on day was poor. Had arranged for family member to be at the property for time of arrival of 8.30 am (80 mile round trip for them). I telephoned over an hour after this due to non-arrival to be told they had only left depot at 8.30 am due to technical issues and were still 200 miles away. Family had to go door to door to find someone who could take our key to give access. Office was advised where key was left but this was not passed on to workmen. Workmen's communication with us couldn't be faulted. Otherwise no problems."

"Very happy with the technical solution and its execution, Geobear did exactly what they said and did it quickly and with little mess and disruption. Site guys were pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. There does seem a slight lack of oversight from head office and a detailed briefing sheet with info on noise, procedures, making good etc would be a help to non professionals . Overall -recommended for the quality of the solution."

"I was very pleased with the results of the foam injection procedure, Ged who did the initial inspection was very helpful and friendly and the guys who did the work were great, my house is very difficult to access but the guys found a solution, they kept me informed throughout the day as to what was taking place, they were all very friendly and cleaned up as they went, in fact when they left there was very little evidence that they had ever been here, my house was actually lifted by the procedure and many of the cracks closed up considerably, bedroom doors now shut properly and a window that had a gap in the frame is now gap free! Very pleased with the results, would highly recommend Geobear to others."

"I had an extension to a house which had moved away from the house due to the concrete base moving. The process was able to stop the base from tipping any further. Unfortunately in my case, it was not able to move the extension back to its original position. THe work was very professional and was completed within about three hours."

"They arrived on time, and set the work site out and commenced drilling holes through the foundation on the last or last but one the drilling the copper water supply pipe was hit which was not your operatives fault it was installed beneath the foundation. This distracted me from the activities that Uretek was doing, I noted the laser level was set up and indicators (6no) were mounted on the wall and injection took place. I do not know how much product was injected in. I hope this stabilizing process has worked time will tell, but your operatives did a good job thanks"

"We had a settlement issue with our living room floor. A structural engineer recommended having it stabilised using resin injection by a reputable company like Uretek. After an assessment by a the area manager (Norman Saint), we booked to have the repair done. The work itself took less than a day to complete and apart from clearing the room there was hardly any disruption at all. The team were polite and professional. We feel confident the work has been done to a high standard and solved the problem. It is guaranteed and achieved for a very reasonable price. We fully recommend Uretek. Thanks very much.
