It’s Childers Brothers’ 50th Anniversary, And We Couldn’t Be Prouder

It’s Childers Brothers’ 50th Anniversary, And We Couldn’t Be Prouder

This year marks Childers Brothers’ 50th anniversary, and a lot has changed since then.  One thing that hasn’t is our commitment to helping homeowners in the Texas Panhandle solve all of their foundation problems.

And do you know what else?

We’re STILL one of the only companies in the area that specializes in foundation repair, leveling, and soil stabilization treatment.  Our techniques and equipment have changed, but our overall philosophy hasn’t.

How Curiosity Sparks Innovation

When the Childers Brothers was founded, it was originally a house painting company.  But, after encountering so many homes with cracked foundations, co-founder Gaylon Childers became fascinated with what was causing the cracks and how they could be prevented.

There were plenty of house painters around, but there were no companies focused on preventing and repairing shifting foundations. It was a vital service that the community needed, but there was no one even remotely qualified to do it.

So, Gaylon and Darrol Childers decided to take matters into their own hands. In 1972 (50 years ago), they officially launched Childers Brothers, Inc. as Amarillo’s one and only foundation repair company.

What’s Kept Us Growing And Thriving For 50 Years

Block Letters Spelling “Innovation” With A Lightbulb On Top

The philosophy of innovation and curiosity has driven our techniques and helped shape how we go about repairing foundations and stabilizing soil.  Rather than do things the way everyone else does, we prefer to do things in the way that is most scientifically sound and EFFECTIVE.

That’s why we utilize the EcSS 3000 Soil Stabilization system, instead of one of the many other flawed, ineffective soil treatments available to homeowners in Amarillo. We use it because it’s safe, effective, and PERMANENT. That means you won’t EVER have to worry about swelling soil again.

It’s also the reason we use ultra-precise calculations when we plan helical pier installations, adjust pier and beam foundations, or do anything else to ensure your foundation remains stable.

Our truly amazing technicians are another reason we’ve survived and thrived for 50 years. We take really good care of our employees, and they take EXCELLENT care of the homes and businesses we work within the Texas Panhandle.

Yet another ingredient in our secret recipe for longevity is our relentless reliability.  If there’s one thing you need to be able to count on, it’s your home’s foundation.

It only makes sense to trust such a vital part of your home to a company that is truly reliable. When we say we’re going to fix something, we do it. If a project proves more challenging than we thought, we find a way to overcome whatever obstacles we encounter.

The Childers Legacy Continues

To this day, Childers Brothers is a family-owned business. Even though we’ve grown over the years, we’ve never lost sight of why Gaylon and Darrol started this company 50 years ago.

Today, Gaylon’s daughter Melissa and her husband Cory run the company to the same impeccable standards that the two original Childers Brothers insisted upon.
