Basement Problem Signs in Knoxville 

In Knoxville, water damage is more likely to occur during the rain season, usually from late March to late August. If water damage does occur in your basement, the problem signs are relatively easy to notice. Keep an eye out for mold, wet stairs, or standing water in your basement. These are red flags that your basement is suffering from excess moisture.

Even problem signs that don’t seem as serious, like condensation or efflorescence are the beginning stages of more intense water damage. These issues will only get worse over time so it’s always a good idea to contact AFS for a free home inspection before problems spiral.  

What are the Causes of Basement Damage in Knoxville?

Your basement experiences water damage for a number of reasons. Although the issues could be from an internal source (like plumbing floods or improper construction), they usually stem from Knoxville’s wet, humid weather. On average, Knoxville receives 50 inches of rain per year. That’s well above the national average of 28 inches.

High rainfall combined with hot, humid weather, means the ground around your basement stays moist nearly all year-round. Water collects next to your basement walls and puts pressure on the structure. This causes wall and floor cracks, providing water with easy access into your basement. Eventually, your basement is being damaged by leaking water coming from the outside.

Basement Waterproofing Solutions in Knoxville  

Every home is unique, so each requires a customized repair option for their specific issues. This is why our team at AFS provides custom repair plans for each home and situation. Depending on the type of damage your basement has sustained, we might install a basement drain system, an energy-efficient dehumidifier, a cutting-edge sump pump system, or basement wall vapor barrier.  All our products are manufactured in the USA and come with long-lasting, nationally backed warranties.

Regardless of the repair option selected, we do our best to ensure the repair process is hassle-free. Our installers treat your home as if it were their own. Using plastic sheeting to protect your basement belongings from dust and plastic floor protection to cover areas where work will be done.

Kolin came out to my house in order to address a large crack in the brick mortar of my home. I couldn't have asked for better service. On time, professional, and easy to deal with. I feel Kolin was honest with me, which is exactly what I wanted when dealing with a foundation issue. Thank you!

AFS is an absolute pleasure to work with. It all started with the amazing inspector, Katie (highly recommend) who came to my cabin to give me a thorough and accurate quote with an extremely fair price compared to the competition (got quoted almost double for the same job from crawlspace ninja & a few other local companies and they spent only a few minutes in the crawlspace-absolutely terrible). Katie made sure I was taken care of and also assured me they would send there best crew to do the job. And man was she right!! The best crew I have ever worked with was led by Darian & his co-foreman Tanner. They arrived on time and with amazing attitudes while being extremely efficient and knowledgeable while they walked me through there plan of action and then perfectly executed said plan!! Could not be happier with how my crawlspace encapsulation turned out!10/10 would recommend Katie & Darian at AFS to do any and all crawlspace work you are looking for!I will definitely be using them for any of my foundation/crawlspace issues in the future.

Amazing service and follow up. Jake, who came to our home to estimate our project, took the time to explain what he felt needed to be done. Jake didn't oversell and was honest from the beginning. Jackson and Micah did a great job on one project. Josh knocked the other project out of the park. Caring and professional led to an outstanding quality job done on two seperate jobs for us by the AFS Team. Thank you AFS!

AFS performed superbly on our job, encapsulating and drying our crawl space in a 85 year old Norris, TN house. A major difficulty was immediately discovered — the original cast iron sewage drain was slowly leaking at several seams. This required a significant repair before encapsulation — restoration cleanup and a new modern PVC drain installation by complimentary contractors. AFS effectively advised us, and they rescheduled their work. The AFS team, Tanner, ( crew leader) and Jake and John, did the encapsulation. They worked hard, communicated effectively and the result was impressive. I’m very delighted we used AFS and strongly recommend them.

Reid Cox of AFS Foundations Knoxville, TN was extremely helpful and responsive by email, txt and phone. The wall under the front porch of our farm house built in 1955 was caving in from the pressure. AFS came up with an affordable solution that will prevent a full collapse. I really enjoyed working with this company and would highly recommend them.

I contacted AFS after seeing their ad on Facebook because we’ve been in need of repairs to a sinking concrete porch. Jacob came out and gave me a reasonable quote and Jeremy and Josh did the repairs. Job came out great and we’re very satisfied with the company’s etiquette, service and pricing. Will recommend to whoever needs their services.

They have 5 stars because they deserve it. All around great experience with AFS. Keith inspected a potential home and the home we just purchased. Was able to come out quickly in the inspection window which we appreciate. He was really thorough in explaining all issues and recommended fixes. I feel like he was out to save us as much money as possible to fix what was needed. We had our crawl space encapsulated by Jackson, Micah and David. These guys are hard workers that were really quiet that I barely knew that they were there. Which in a work from home environment is appreciated. Pleased with the work, showed me the finished area and explanation from Jackson. I would highly recommend AFS and will use them again no problem.

WOW! It's not often I can say everything went as well or better than I hoped for. From the original call when a real person picked up the phone and set up an appointment for my estimate to the completion of the job I have nothing but good things to say aboutthe experience. Daniel came to our home and explained to us what needed to be done to correct the problem. He called ahead and was on time arriving. He made sure we understood what was involved with making the repair and walked us through the warranty info.The day of the scheduled repair we received a phone call from Josh stating that they were running a little ahead of schedule and asked could they come early. We told him to head our way. Josh and Jeremy both were very professional and we are happy with the work they did and how they cleaned up the area. I am so glad that this is the company we chose to use for this project.

AFS was very responsive when I first called about my foundation structural issues. They explained what needed to be done and gave an estimate that was affordable for the work being done. They scheduled when the work would be done and was on point with that schedule. The guys who performed the service, Jordan, AJ and Eli were on time, calling to let me know they were on they way. Jordan explained the full process and answered any questions I had. He was very professional and knowledgeable, a pleasure to talk to. AJ was a pleasure to chat with, professional and love what he was doing. He was the newest on the team and as I watched him work I was very impressed. Eli was a pleasure to chat with and was also a great help to the guys. All three guys did an awesome job and cleaned up the areas they work after the job was done. I would absolutely recommend this company and team to do your foundation and structural work. Thank you guys for doing an amazing job and walking me through the process as you did the work!
