Crawl spaces tend to be overlooked by many homeowners, when in reality it's important to address all of your crawl space's issues in order to promote energy-efficiency and comfort in the rest of your home. Mold growth, wood rot, and other moisture problems are not uncommon in crawl spaces that are poorly sealed or lack sufficient insulation. These issues can quickly spread to the rooms above and you may notice signs such as musty odors in your home, high humidity levels, or even heightened allergy symptoms.

If you have damaged or sunken concrete surfaces around your Dothan, AL home, you have to deal with the liability of tripping and injury on your property as well as the eyesore of these uneven surfaces. AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists uses PolyLevel concrete leveling and lifting to safely and efficiently restore your concrete. Many contractors use mudjacking, a much heavier, disruptive, and unreliable process that involves drilling large holes in the concrete. PolyLevel, on the other hand, consists of a lightweight yet durable polyurethane foam that is injected beneath the concrete slabs. This foam then expands and raises the sunken concrete to a stable, even position with permanent results. PolyLevel concrete leveling can fix the following problems:

Our concrete leveling services are also available for highway and commercial issues, and can be just as effective on a major roadway as a residential driveway.
While sunken concrete can cause a safety hazard outside of your home, radon exposure can cause a serious health risk from inside. As the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, this naturally occurring gas can be extremely dangerous in high levels. Since radon can't be discovered by scent, smell, or sight, the only way to ensure that your home is safe is by performing a radon test. AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists is your local radon contractor in Dothan, fully qualified to provide professional radon testing as well as radon abatement services. If dangerous levels are found in your home, we will install a radon mitigation system that will clear out the gas and prevent it from entering in the future for a healthier, safer living environment.

Did you know that your house could actually sink into the ground? Dorothy J. found that out the hard way. Her foundation was sinking into the ground more and more each day. After Dorothy performed a Google search for Alabama Foundation Specialists, she found expert Stephan Scates. Stephan quickly recommended our Helical Piers.
Helical Piers system uses rugged steel galvanized helical piers advanced deep into the earth’s soil to transfer the weight of your home onto competent, load-bearing strata or bedrock. It will restore your home’s structural integrity against wetting and softening of soils, drying and shrinking of soils, and poorly compacted fill soil.
After the Helical Piers system was installed by Primary Foreman Jose Trinidad, the job was done and homeowner Dorothy J. will have a strong foundation for years to come.
