Our focus in this is to get these folks back in their home... there are so many residents in Rowlett still displaced

Doing its part to help the area community, Fortress Foundation Systems of Rockwall, in conjunction with TMG Manufacturing of Tampa, Florida and 2000 Industries of Carrollton, today announced it would be donating $15,000 in services to the Wright family of Rowlett. Work is scheduled to begin on Thursday, August 25th.

The repairs will utilize the new CSR­174 cutting edge drilling machine built by TMG Manufacturing. “This incredible drill rig is designed to achieve maximum torque and depth for helical pier applications. The rig is unique in that it is extremely efficient and utilizes a proprietary 4 speed gearbox that allows for accurate control of both speed and torque,” said Cathy Hood, Texas Area Rep for TMG Manufacturing. 2000 Industries is the first rig dealer of TMG materials and rigs in the DFW Metroplex.

The Wright family was one of hundreds of Rowlett Residents that lost their homes to the deadly Tornado on December 26th 2015. Remarkably many homes remain in disrepair in the damage area and some families have run out of options. The pain of tornado damage is enough, but many homeowners in the area have to deal with the additional struggle of insurance issues and bad contractors. Cathy Hood had seen enough.

“Our focus in this is to get these folks back in their home... there are so many residents in Rowlett still displaced,” said Hood. “We have been blessed enough over the last few years that it's only right that we pass those blessings along. 'Paying it forward' sounds so cliché but to hoard what we have been given isn't what we are about. Our motto at Fortress is 'honesty, integrity, affordability' even if that affordability means helping someone out who is down on their luck.”

With work scheduled to begin on Thursday August 25th, Fortress Foundation Systems and their local partner 2000 Industries are eager to begin and use this one of a kind machinery to get the ball rolling. “We can't have a homeowner rebuilding on a slab we suspect is unstable. We wouldn't want our family living that way, nor would we want that for someone living right here in our own community,“ said Hood. This particular area of Rowlett has some of the most expansive clays in the Dallas Fort Worth area. Methods of stabilization should be closely scrutinized by geotechnical and/or structural engineers with experience in similar cases.
