Basement Waterproofing in Huntsville, AL

Do you worry about water leaking into the basement of your Huntsville, AL, home every time it rains? While basements are multi-functional areas, not all of them were built with total waterproofing in mind. Due to Huntsville’s regular rain and unstable soil, leaking walls, elevated humidity, and mold are common problems in these below-grade areas. 

Keeping your basement dry and free of moisture issues is important for the health and safety of your home and family, and the best way to do that is with professional assistance. Our friendly and experienced team at AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists has been installing nothing but the most reliable permanent basement waterproofing solutions in homes throughout Huntsville and northern Alabama for more than 20 years, and we are eager to help you create a healthier living environment, as well.

Basement Problem Signs in Huntsville

Standing, seeping, or flooding water are the most obvious signs that something is wrong with the basement of your Huntsville house. However, there are a lot of additional problem signs that you will likely see in your basement or experience in other areas of your home. Typical basement damage signs include efflorescence, mold, condensation, excessive humidity, musty or unpleasant odors, wet walls and floors, plumbing floods, and flooded stairs. If you are unclear about a problem’s appearance or the potential seriousness of the condition, we advise having a free and comprehensive inspection performed by one of our certified professionals. 

What are the Causes of Basement Damage in Huntsville?

Numerous factors might lead to basement issues, including internal leaks from plumbing lines or a malfunctioning sump pump. The most common causes of basement damage, however, are the clay bowl effect and hydrostatic pressure. These pertain to how your house was constructed as well as how Huntsville’s wet, humid environment and difficult soils affect it. If the soil around your basement walls is loose, it can create an artificial water table, which can cause problems for your basement walls. This is common for homes because of Huntsville’s average annual rainfall of 55 inches, as well as its diverse silt loam, silty clay loam, and clay soils. Your home may also have faulty foundation drainage that cannot handle all the rain and runoff.
