Auburn is the fastest-growing metropolitan area in Alabama, and there's a reason it's known as "The Loveliest Village on the Plains." However, while Auburn may be a lovely place to live, it is also home to hot, muggy summers with high humidity levels. In addition, Auburn's proximity to the Gulf of Mexico means that fringe effects from tropical storms such as torrential rains, high winds, and tornadoes are a common reality for homeowners in the area. This kind of weather can cause serious problems for your basement, crawl space, and foundation. If your basement is flooded due to severe storm activity, your foundation is settling due to moisture and expansion in the soil, or you have a damp and moldy crawl space, AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists can help!

Crawl space encapsulation protects this Alabama crawl space from moisture and mold
If you have mold growth, wood rot, moisture damage, or structural damage in your crawl space, it's safe to assume that the rest of your home will suffer as well. Rather than staying confined to your crawl space, these issues will typically spread to your entire home and manifest themselves through musty odors, heightened allergy symptoms, sagging floors above your crawl space, and expensive energy bills. AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists offers wet crawl space repair and crawl space structural repair throughout the Auburn area. We can stabilize the space using crawl space support jack posts, and we can install a CleanSpace vapor barrier system to seal out excess moisture. With a crawl space encapsulation system, your crawl space will stay mold-free and watertight year-round!
Crawl space encapsulation will help restore your indoor air quality by removing mold spores and providing moisture control, but even the cleanest home could have a dangerous health risk in the air that you will never discover without the proper equipment. Radon gas is the leading cause of lung cancer for nonsmokers in the U.S., and can seep into your home through tiny cracks in your foundation or infiltrate through groundwater or ventilation systems. The only way to know if your home has dangerously high radon levels is by completing a radon test. As a qualified radon mitigation contractor in Auburn, AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists can perform professional radon testing and install a radon abatement system if high levels are discovered. Our radon mitigation technology will remove any of the gas from your home and prevent it from entering in the future so you can stay worry-free and healthy.
AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists offers structural repair and foundation repair services for both residential and commercial properties in the Auburn area. We can repair your uneven floors, bowing walls, foundation and wall cracks, and frequently sticking windows and doors. These problems are usually caused by foundation settlement, which happens when the soil beneath your home expands due to moisture changes and then contracts, creating a gap between your foundation and the soil around it. We use patented, award-winning products for foundation settlement repair, foundation wall stabilization and wall straightening, crack repair, and more. Our foundation repair products include:
Helical pier systems create a solid supporting base for your foundation
If you need foundation support for a new construction, we also provide commercial foundations and foundation repair services for government, municipal, and other commercial buildings along with our residential services. No foundation problem is too large or small for our geotechnical solutions and structural repair methods, all carefully designed to provide lasting stability and support for any building.
Sidewalk restoration with PolyLevel concrete leveling
Do you have sunken, uneven concrete surfaces creating an eyesore on your property? Even worse, sunken concrete can pose a safety hazard by increasing the likelihood that you, your family, or visitors will trip and fall outside of your home.
AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists uses PolyLevel concrete leveling and lifting, a better alternative to mudjacking and slab jacking. Unlike traditional methods, the PolyLevel system involves a lightweight polyurethane foam that is injected beneath the concrete slab where it expands and evens out the surface. Rather than providing a temporary fix, PolyLevel concrete leveling is a long-lasting solution that will stay durable and stable. Best of all, the entire process is fast, efficient, and minimally invasive – we will be out of your way before you know it! PolyLevel works on sunken sidewalks, driveways, concrete steps, patios, pool decks, and even major highways and roadways.

The status of a crawl space is essential to the well being of a home. Having any sort of foundation or waterproofing issue not only jeopardizes the health of the crawl space but also the house in its entirety. When Jill M. of Auburn, AL found that parts of her floor were sagging, she asked around her family and friends for the name of a good company. She was soon referred to AFS whom she called that same day for a free estimate.
Jill was met shortly after by waterproofing specialist Regan Williams of AFS at her Auburn, AL home. Regan guessed that her sagging floor problem stemmed from the crawl space, and after a quick evaluation he figured out that his assumption was correct. Although the problem was worse than Jill had anticipated, Regan assured her that he had a solution. Regan explained to Jill that the piers and columns supporting her home in the crawl space were settling and needed reinforcement. Regan recommended the installation of Smart Jacks. Smart Jacks are a supplemental support system specifically used for crawl spaces. The Smart Jacks are utilized by placing it under the settling pier and putting it under a crushed stone or recycled concrete base. This ensures stability for many years. Along with the Smart Jacks, Regan recommended the installation of a Cleanspace 20 mil vapor barrier. This vapor barrier will prevent any outside water from penetrating the crawl space and will keep it dry.
After finalizing what products to install, Regan called in primary foreman James McGhee and his crew to install the waterproofing products. With the crawl space efficiently waterproofed and stabilized, Jill no longer has to worry about saggy floors, and can walk through her house stress free knowing the professionals at AFS have done work that will last for years to come!
Homeowner Sherran H. noticed after a heavy rainstorm that his basement was taking in water. Desperate for answers, Sherran began asking friends & family and checking the internet for top of the line waterproofers. After some time spent looking, Sherran was referred by a family member to AFS whom he called that same day.
A short time later, AFS sent out waterproofing specialist Regan Williams to Sherran’s Auburn, AL home to diagnose his basement. After a quick evaluation, Regan knew exactly how to prevent future water troubles in the basement. Regan recommended the installation of a TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe system is unique as it has 3 pumps built in; 2 regular pumps and a backup battery pump that will continue to function even during a power outage, ensuring drainage in all circumstances. Regan also recommended the installation of a Waterguard XL Drainage system and Waterguard Inspection port. The combination of these two products would effectively displace all water that seeps into the basement. The Waterguard XL is a patented drainage system that is installed along the perimeter of the basement and redirects the water seeping in from the walls to the sump pump and then into the yard.
After agreeing on the recommended products, Regan called upon primary foreman Cande Duarte and his crew to install the waterproofing products. The number one priority at AFS is customer satisfaction and thanks to the professionals at AFS, Sherran’s home is drier and safer than ever!
