Decatur, AL basement waterproofing and crawl space encapsulation

Waterproofing a leaky basement perimeter in Decatur, AL

Water around the perimeter of a basement can be prevented with our waterproofing system.

Known as the River City, Decatur's climate and geography can create fun times for the family on the one hand, but also structural difficulties for homes on the other. Frequent severe thunderstorms have the capability to put stress on foundation and basement walls and other areas, leading to leaky basements and crawl spaces. If you're looking for a contractor to help with basement waterproofing or crawl space repair, you've come to the right place.

AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists has been serving homeowners in Decatur ever since we opened our doors in 2000. As a member of the Basement Systems dealer network, we have access to the industry's most trusted products that have been proven to work in any home. We carry everything from sump pumps to drains, dehumidifiers, vapor barriers, and additional products including water heater flood protection rings, durable washer hoses, downspout extensions, and much more! We also offer similar products sized to fit in a crawl space environment.

Signs of a basement water problem

  • Wet or damp basement floor or standing water
  • Leaking or damp basement walls or windows
  • Crystalline deposits on concrete surfaces
  • Musty odors, condensation, and humidity
  • Sump pump issues

Does your basement leak during heavy rain, or does it just feel humid or musty? No matter how big or small of a problem you think your home has, it's always a good idea to call in a professional to assess the situation and prevent long-term complications, such as mold growth or structural decay. Wet, hazardous homes will be a thing of the past when you call in AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists to waterproof your basement!

Reliable solutions for foundation repair and concrete lifting and leveling

Foundation crack around shower in Decatur, AL

Foundation settlement has caused this shower to come apart from the wall.

There are many potential causes of foundation trouble, but the most common always have something to do with the soil around your home - which you as a homeowner don't have much control over. Certain types of soils are more porous than others, allowing for water absorption, soil expansion and shrinking, and foundation shifting or settlement. These foundation problems can present themselves in many ways around your home, but they all require a professional for dependable foundation repairs.

Foundation problem signs and symptoms

  • Cracks in floors and walls
  • Uneven, sloping, or sagging floors
  • Bowing walls
  • Sticking windows and doors
  • Tilting chimneys

AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists uses Foundation Supportworks products to resolve all of the root causes of these symptoms. Foundation piering, wall anchors and braces, and crawl space support jacks are just some of the ways we will fix your home. If concrete slab settlement is the issue, we're trained in the revolutionary PolyLevel method, a high-performing alternative to mudjacking. Our professionals will perform a thorough examination of your property so we're sure to use the right solution for you.

Radon gas mitigation in Decatur, AL

Do you know how much radon is in your home?

When we remove radon from your home, we ensure it cannot re-enter. Our mission is to keep your family safe for the years to come.

Any kind of problem with your home can seem overwhelming, especially when it comes to something as fundamental as your foundation or basement. The specialists at AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists have decades of training to provide permanent solutions and give you the peace of mind you deserve.

Job Stories From Decatur, AL
Smart Jacks Fix Sagging in Decatur, AL Crawl Space

Decatur, AL homeowners John & Lisa F. one day found that their floors above their crawl space were sagging.  Wanting to know if they had a bigger problem on their hands, the couple began looking contractors up in the yellow pages.  After noticing an ad from AFS that advertised free estimates, the couple decided to call them.  

 

Shortly after, the couple was met by crawl space repair specialist Adam Hampton from AFS.  After going under their house and evaluating their situation, Adam told the couple their floors were indeed sagging, but reassured them he knew exactly how to stabilize the crawl space.  Adam called in primary foreman Lawrence Richey and his crew to help him fix the crawl space, and they installed Smart Jacks.  Smart Jacks are a supplemental support system for crawl spaces which are placed under a sagging pier or used as a replacement for a column. The Smart Jack is set above a well compacted crushed stone or recycled base and used as an efficient support system.

 

After a fast 2 day installation process, John and Lisa’s crawl space no longer has to bear the weight of the entire home, and thanks to the professionals at AFS, the Smart Jacks will keep the homes floors straight and the house stabilized in the future!

SuperSump WaterGuard Combo Drain Fixes Decatur, AL Basement and Prevents Future Flooding

One of the biggest problems homeowners face is water seepage in their basement. Without sufficient waterproofing products, a basement could go from dry to flooded during any storm.  When Decatur, AL homeowner Ralph B. found that after a particularly heavy storm his basement was taking in water, he knew he needed immediate help. Knowing Ralph needed help; a close family friend referred him to AFS, whom he contacted immediately.

 

Shortly after being contacted, AFS sent out basement waterproofing specialist Reid Cox to evaluate Ralph’s basement. While evaluating the basement, Reid noticed water was soaking up from the ground into Ralph’s basement. Luckily for Ralph, Reid had the perfect products to fix Ralph’s basement water troubles. Reid recommended the installation of a SuperSump sump pump and a WaterGuard XL interior drainage system. The combination of these two products working in harmony will drastically change the situation of the basement from soaking wet to dry. The WaterGuard XL is a drainage system installed around the perimeter of the basement. It effectively displaces seeping water to its sump pump counterpart, which is in this case the SuperSump sump pump. The SuperSump is a top of the line sump pump, as it can pump 2220 gallons an hour and has a built in alarm to alert the homeowner of pump failure.

 

With the recommendations agreed upon, Reid called in primary foreman Andres Perez and his crew to install the waterproofing products. After a quick two day installation process, Ralph’s home was ready to take on heavy storms and groundwater with confidence, knowing that the professionals at AFS have waterproofed a long lasting basement!
