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.

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!!

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.

Dan, CJ, and Taylor were awesome! All three of them worked hard, and placated my abundant questions. We were working on parts of the home that made their jobs more difficult at the time, and they didn't miss a beat. Super understanding, flexible, and went the extra mile to help me out making sure we weren't getting in each other's way. Dan made sure to communicate very clearly when they would be on site, what they were doing each day, and made sure he made time for all my questions.
