Owner and Staff in New Orleans LA

Owner David Knight, Inventor of the Cable Lock System

The owner of the Cable Lock™ system, David Knight, graduated from the engineering program at the University of Houston. Afterwards, he began his career at a geotechnical firm. This helped him gain valuable experience in foundation analysis.

Later, he became registered as a professional engineer in the State of Texas. In 1986, he started an engineering firm with his father. Their company administered more than 4,000 claims for structural and foundation damage through a nationwide structural warranty program for new homes. During that time, David invented the Cable Lock piling system. The first several patents were filed in 1992.

The Early Days of Cable Lock Foundation Repair & Shoring

David's brother, Paul Knight, also a graduate from the UH engineering program, joined the engineering firm in 1993. Working at the family's firm, both David and Paul gained useful experience and knowledge by troubleshooting foundation problems, as well as providing design and soil analysis. In 1996, Paul took the position as acting president of Cable Lock in New Orleans.

In the spring of 1997, the New Orleans location was formed as a Louisiana Corporation with David and Paul as equal shareholders. Under their leadership, as well as the direction of Darren Averitt (general manager), the business became the largest foundation company in the Louisiana. Paul Knight left the company in 2006 to pursue another venture. Cable Lock Foundation Repair & Shoring is currently owned by David Knight. Both Darren Averitt and Mike Deshazer are minority partners of the company.

Where We Are Today

Currently, we employ several experienced crews that specialize in repairing foundations for homes and businesses. Cable Lock has the trained staff to provide both prompt and quality services. Every crew has a foreman on site that oversees the work. We are always available to meet the needs and concerns of property owners.

The Cable Lock system is used by many companies spanning more than 21 states. Throughout the years, with input from General Manager Darren Averitt and Owner David Knight, we have further developed the cable lock piling system. We have done this by adapting them to the unusual soil conditions of Louisiana. This is especially true of soil in New Orleans and surrounding areas.

In addition, we feature a lifetime warranty on all work. The warranty is also transferable to the next owner of the property. If any adjustments are required during the life of the home due to settling, we will re-raise all areas previously underpinned without cost to the owner.
