Foundation Repair in Knoxville, TN

slab pier installation

Maybe you’re postponing repairs to your bowing basement walls, cracked concrete slab, or tilting chimney. If so, you may want to think again. Although foundation repair may not be something you want to do, ensuring your foundation is stable is key to your family’s safety. Foundation problems never get better with time. Leaving uneven floors or sticking doors and windows to fester will only result in a more costly repair down the road.

Foundation Problem Signs in Knoxville, TN

Your Knoxville foundation problems are likely easy to recognize just by looking around your home. From settlement sinking, foundation heave, a sagging crawl space, or wall cracks, these red flags are an indication of foundation problems. Your foundation problems could be symptoms of a larger problem; it’s best to have the trained professionals at AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists set their sights on the problem with a free, no-obligation inspection

Causes of Foundation Damage in Knoxville

The cause of the problems at your Knoxville home is most likely out of your control, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways you can put an end to the damage.  

Knoxville’s weather and soil are most likely to blame for the common foundation problems at your home. Although environmental factors are frustrating, understanding why you see problems is a step in the right direction. Knoxville receives about 50 inches of rain a year, which is well above the national average. Combine the heavy precipitation with the areas loam and sandy loam soil, and the ground supporting your home can easily become unstable. As a result, it’s not uncommon for the soil beneath your home to wash out, causing settlement. 

Foundation Repair Solutions in Knoxville

Depending on your home’s foundation type, the degree of damage, and the time you’ve noticed the problem, the right solution may be simple or a bit more complex. For homes that are sinking, AFS uses a piering system to stabilize and potentially lift your home back to a level position. Bowing basement walls are repaired with either carbon fiber straps, wall braces, or wall anchors, depending on the extent of the damage. While sagging floors in a crawl space are repaired with crawl space supports. Regardless of the suggested repair, our products are made in America and come with a long-term, nationally backed warranty.

Why Choose AFS?

Your home’s stability depends on the foundation of your home. Ignoring your foundation problem and choosing other home improvements instead could cause additional work in the future. Since your foundation isn’t stable, sinking or shifting causes cracks in drywall, brickwork, roofs, and even kitchen countertops.  

Homeowners in Knoxville have trusted AFS for more than two decades. We let our reputation speak for itself. With thousands of online reviews in Knoxville and the neighboring areas, plus numerous awards like the Angi List Super Service Award, the decision is simple.

I used AFS to repair my foundation , They sent me Joe, and his crew, they finished my job in two days, were very professional, took every precaution not to tear up my yard and made sure everything was clean and in order when they finished. Definitely would recommend AFS to family and neighbors and would tell them to make sure they ask for Joe and his crew Jeremiah&Julio to do the job. I would also recommend Tommy Thomason to come out and do the estimate, very professional, checks everything and makes sure you understand the procedures that will be performed, He recommended Joe, Jeremiah and Julio. So make sure you ask for these guys by name if you have issues with your home like I did.

Consultant Jake was great to work with, was straight forward and honest with what had to be done. Foreman Eddie and his crew Tanner and Baron were very professional and did a great job encapsulating my crawlspace as well as placing a beam to support the center of my lower floor. I would highly recommend AFS for any foundation work you need. AWESOME JOB!!

I hired AFS to install SettleStop Helical Piers and SettleStop Push Piers to stop the settling of my home. Thanks to Jonathan Beaird, the Certified Field Inspector, the work was rescheduled two weeks earlier and completed within the two rescheduled days. I was very thankful for Luis, the Pier Crew Foreman, who explained the process in detail and stayed connected with me during the entire process. He certainly gave me the confidence and assurance I needed. Peace of mind is of utmost importance in a project of this size. The Pier Crew, Jose and Jordan were very helpful also in answering questions and were very efficient in their work. The crew finished and cleaned up the surrounding area to my satisfaction. The Poly Crew, Gaven Dendy and Aaron Geinert were very professional and explained their part of the process. They did a great job. Both crews were very efficient, polite, professional and top of their field providing the best customer service. I appreciate the work of both crews and their professionalism.

On Wednesday December 14th we had our service contract yearly inspection. First one so we were not sure how thorough they would be. It was awesome. The service technician George Steiner was very nice and professional. He spent about an hour checking all the components of of our encapsulated crawl space and drainage system. Repaired any deficiencies, services the humidifier. Then presented everything to us in photographs on his laptop. Pleased is an understatement. Absolutely too notch.Thanks AFS and George Steiner, well done.

Ka’Tell, Dallas and Jorge did a fantastic job. When you get something fixed, isn’t it great to get it done right the first time?

All I can say is how happy I am with the work performed. Had my crawl space encapsulated with dehumidifier and sump pump system and got a fabulous job. With all the rain had no leakage and pumps work great. I used another company previously and they made a mess. All the taped floor joints leaked as overlap was incorrect and improperly taped. They damaged my A/C condensate lines. Additionally, Levi Woods has been a Godsend. He has come to my home numerous times on his own and on weekends to help me add drainage fittings and install an additional dehumidifier I had purchased separately. I can always call him and get my questions answered. Very helpful and proactive. Finally, I will say not impressed with service department. Found the woman I talked to as dismissive, unhelpful, unfriendly and uninformed. Thankyou Levi for being there. This company is the best in the business minus some customer service people and I am speaking from experience.

We just had an interior drain with a sump pump installed. Talon did the inspection and estimate. He was professional and spent ample time answering our questions. He also promptly returned all texts questions and calls. Eddie was the foreman with Baron and Jackson as crew. They were excellent in walking me through what they were doing, and answering my questions. I highly recommend them, and will be using them for the encapsulation.

Steve Napi came and did a free inspection on our home in Cookeville, TN. He was extremely helpful and answered my many questions (tips tricks and needs to remediate some issues) and explored all of the options and suggestions customized to our specific situations in our basement.He showed me the price breakdown, how the process would work, how we could finance, and physical pieces and pictures of the materials and process that the job would entail. He is a great guy and extremely knowledgable. AFS has a great employee in Steve Napi. – Victor Wesley
