As the largest city in the state, Birmingham, AL has thousands of homeowners whose basements are wet and unappealing. This is made worse by the city’s climate, which features abundant rainfall and severe thunderstorms during many parts of the year. Fortunately, AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists has over 15 years of experience handling basement and crawl space water issues for local homeowners just like you!
Most unfinished basements aren’t known for being the most attractive or exciting part of a home, but that doesn’t mean they should be left to rot and decay. Water in your basement, which can enter anywhere from a leaky basement wall or window to a failed washer heater, will eventually grow mold and create health hazards for the whole home. If you’ve noticed any of these signs in your basement, it’s time to call in a professional:
- 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
AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists has a wide variety of products we can use to keep your basement dry. From high-volume sump pumps to French drains and efficient dehumidifiers, we have all of the components necessary for a successful waterproofing system. After we install these products in your basement, you’ll have a more valuable home and more space to safely store your possessions, do your laundry, or however else you wish to use your below-the-home space!
Additionally, we offer crawl space repair and encapsulation services that will also keep water and moisture away from your home. Because so many crawl spaces are left almost entirely open to the outside, moisture and mold growth are extremely common – which can be detrimental to the structural integrity of your entire home. Our crawl space vapor barrier, sump pump, dehumidifier, and more will prevent harm from coming to your home.
Solutions for foundation repair and concrete raising
Have you noticed cracks along exterior or interior walls and floors, bowing walls, uneven flooring, or even a tilting chimney around your home? These signs usually point to foundation problems, which can become serious if not taken care of. AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists employs foundation specialists who can quickly diagnose the issue and offer the best solution for your foundation repair needs.
Different symptoms may mean different problems for your home, and we can discover the root of any foundation problem. For example, stair-step cracking along exterior bricks usually means foundation settlement, while bulging cracks in floors point to foundation heave. There are also a wide variety of products designed for each of these problems. Push or helical piers can resolve foundation settlement, while wall anchors and braces fix bowing walls. AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists uses the best products on every job.
We can also help with concrete lifting and leveling needs around your property. If you have:
- A cracked driveway
- An uneven patio
- A sinking sidewalk
- A sunken pool deck
Our professionals are more than ready to use the SettleStop Concrete Raising method to set these problems straight. SettleStop uses a lightweight polyurethane foam that quickly lifts concrete back to level after it is injected into the ground. In just 15 minutes after application, most concrete slabs are ready for normal use. If your foundation or concrete is making life difficult for you, schedule a free quote with AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists today!

Cracks and floor caving
Forest View Ln in Birmingham

I have been contacted several times via email to get a free estimate. I have replied several times to said email with no response. My concern is my front porch which is 2 stories tall with 4 pillars holding up the roof. The “floor” of the porch which is I think marble and brick has started to erode underneath causing one side to be lower and breaks in the brick and marble. looking for an estimate to fix this possibly with the foam. Thanks, Jim
