Foundation Repair in Franklin

In Franklin, unstable soil threatens home foundations. The area’s clay-based soils swell with substantial rainfall (around 53 inches annually) and shrink when dry, exerting force on foundation walls. Over time, this cycle causes uneven settlement and cracking. Telltale signs include sticking doors and windows, foundation cracks, and a tilting chimney. Our experts stabilize foundations long-term with proven solutions like wall anchors and foundation pier systems. Trust us to secure your home against Franklin’s problematic shifting soils.

Basement Waterproofing in Franklin

Flooding and high groundwater plague Franklin basements. Water damage ruins basements with mold, cracks, efflorescence, and dampness. Once water penetrates, problems persist until permanent solutions are installed. AFS waterproofs basements for good using interior perimeter drainage, sump pumps, dehumidifiers, and wall vapor barriers. Our experts banish wet basements for healthier, usable space. Transform your flooded Franklin basement from a smelly hassle into a clean, safe storage or entertainment area. With AFS waterproofing, your basement stays dry despite heavy regional rainfall.

Franklin Crawl Space Repair

Excess moisture is the top enemy of Franklin crawl spaces. With above-average annual rainfall and year-round humidity, dampness fuels mold growth, pest infestations, and wood rot below your home. Standing water and condensation create an ideal environment for termites, eventually inviting them above your floors. AFS repairs and protects crawl spaces with customized encapsulation, sealing out moisture with vapor barriers while controlling it with drainage, sump pumps, and dehumidification systems. Our experts also install support jacks where needed to stabilize foundations against Franklin’s problematic expansive clay soils. Let us transform your crawl space from a wet, unstable hazard into a sealed, moisture-controlled asset.

Franklin Concrete Leveling

Cracking and sinking concrete is common on properties throughout Franklin due to expansive clay soils. Driveways, sidewalks, and pool decks develop hazardous cracks that hurt curb appeal and home value. Mudjacking and replacement bring short-term fixes without resolving the core issue: fluctuations in soil moisture. PolyRenewal™ offers a superior solution. We inject polyurethane foam beneath concrete to compress and stabilize soil, create a water barrier, and gently lift slabs back into position. With PolyRenewal™ from AFS, restore your concrete and your home’s value while enhancing curb appeal. Our innovative process brings long-term concrete slab solutions.

FAQ

While the idea of fixing minor cracks yourself may be appealing, foundation repair is typically not an advisable DIY project. Mistakes can aggravate the issue further. Given the Southeast’s unique soil and climate, it’s highly recommended to engage professionals like AFS for a comprehensive evaluation and treatment. 

Some molds, like black mold, can make you sick, causing breathing problems, allergies, and flu-like symptoms. Being around mold for a long time can make conditions like asthma worse. To stop mold from coming back, it’s important to find and fix any water leaks or dampness in the basement.

While some homeowners may attempt DIY solutions, it’s best to seek professional assistance due to the complex nature of the process. Proper crawl space repair requires expert knowledge and tools to ensure effectiveness and safety. 

Yes, investing in the right concrete leveling method for your situation is worth it. Rather than wasting money on temporary solutions that require continued installation, you can ensure your concrete’s safety and longevity and enhance your home’s value and aesthetics with professional assistance. AFS is your trusted local concrete lifting expert. Contact us today for a free inspection and estimate.
