While you can take steps to reduce the amount of rainwater that gets into your basement, we offer waterproofing options that will keep your basement even drier. When it comes to soggy basements, we offer many solutions to dry things out, including installing drainage systems and a sump pump to divert water out of your home.
Foundation cracks can lead to serious problems. If you notice any cracks in your foundation, it’s important to call us quickly to repair them before they worsen. During our evaluation, we will determine whether the cracks result from your home settling. If so, we can level your home and install foundation piers to prevent additional settling, which would otherwise put too much stress on your foundation.
Crawl Space Repair
While it may be challenging to evaluate the condition of your crawl space, getting into this area is essential when it comes to protecting your home. We have the tools and expertise to assess your crawl space and make any repairs that may be necessary. We can add liners, insulation, and drainage systems to secure your crawl space.
The underlying ground has probably settled if you notice large cracks in your concrete driveway or sidewalk. This creates an uneven layer that puts additional stress on the concrete. We can create a more level surface and lay fresh concrete that will last longer. We offer concrete leveling services to help you restore your sidewalks, driveway, basement floor, or patio.
A sinkhole may form when you have large, porous limestone deposits on your property. We will examine your sinkhole to determine the best method for repairing the problem. In addition to restoring your concrete surface, we will remedy the situation, ensuring you don’t suffer additional sinkholes in the same area.

Crawl Space Repair
Crawl space issues have you on your knees? Our contractors have plenty of experience with all kinds of crawl space issues, from excess moisture to pests and vermin and sagging joists. We offer stabilization services, crawl space encapsulation and sealing, and insulation installation. Your crawl space can be just as important to the safety and comfort of your home as any other part—don’t neglect it!
Need a lift? Our one-day concrete leveling services are here to help get your driveway, patio, or foundation back in line. We use PolyLevel® polyurethane, a lightweight foam that is injected beneath your slab to prop it up. No more tripping over that uneven part of your walkway! We also offer concrete replacement services for slabs that are beyond repair.
Sinkholes are common in areas with lots of limestone beneath the soil, like Tennessee, north Georgia, and western North Carolina. Limestone easily erodes, causing the soil above to collapse. The American Foundation & Waterproofing team is experienced with all three primary types of sinkholes and can repair and remediate any sinkhole situation, large or small. Give us a call today!
