As President and Founder of AquaGuard Foundation Solutions, Tom has strived to raise his customers’ expectations of residential contractors by developing and running his business with the slogan “A Service Company with Integrity, A Contractor who Cares” as his guide.
With more than 21 years in residential home services, Tom has an extensive understanding of the residential basement waterproofing, crawlspace repair and foundation repair industries. He brings a focused and intelligent approach to each job and is a true waterproofing and foundation repair expert. Tom achieved his certifications from premier organizations including, The National Association of Waterproofing & Structural Repair Contractors, Basement Systems, Incorporated (BSI) International Waterproofing Contractors Network and Foundation SupportWorks, Incorporated (FSI).
Over the past two decades, Tom has built the AquaGuard team into one of the largest, most highly-respected & award-winning basement waterproofing and foundation repair companies in the Southeastern United States. This includes 15 consecutive Atlanta Consumer Choice Awards for Business Excellence and 15 Atlanta’s Home Reports “Top Pick” awards for waterproofing and foundation repair. AquaGuard is also the only residential waterproofing company in Georgia to be licensed by The Georgia Real Estate Commission to offer Continuing Education courses for Real Estate Brokers & Agents, as well as Real Estate Appraisers and Inspectors. AquaGuard received the BBB’s most honored award, The Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics an unprecedented six years in a row in addition to winning the Torch Award for Customer Service multiple times.
Tom is highly regarded as an industry expert and regularly teaches and speaks to home service and home inspection organizations. His commitment to serving Atlanta and North Georgia homeowners with integrity and remarkable customer service has not gone unnoticed, as Tom was proudly named the Atlanta Metro Chamber’s Business Person of the Year in 2015. Tom’s sincerity and affable personality have become household items, of sorts, for many area homeowners, as he and AquaGuard have frequently been endorsed via Dave Baker’s “Home Fix It Show”, WXIA’s “Atlanta & Company,” 104.7 FM The Fish’s morning co-host, Kevin Avery, and Atlanta Plugged In with Kimberly Kennedy. Tom was also recently featured for his entrepreneurial prowess on “The Shrimp Tank”, produced by Kennesaw State University’s Department of Management & Entrepreneurship.
