OUR SERVICES FOR YOU

Basement Waterproofing in Athens

Athens has a wet environment that doesn’t lend itself well to basement foundations. Alongside sandy soils and deeper clay soils, your basement constantly faces potential damage. The 48 inches of annual rain in Athens leads to muddy, soft soils in your yard. When the water drains below the surface, it puts pressure on the basement floors and walls. Eventually, the increasing water pressure leads to mold and other problems signs. Faulty sump pumps or plumbing leaks also lead to water in your basement. However, AquaGuard has basement waterproofing solutions like dehumidifiers and drainage systems that stop these issues for good.   

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Athens

Crawl spaces are some of the most vulnerable foundations simply due to their design. With open vents and dirt floors, many crawl spaces are exposed to the outdoor elements. As a result, Athens’ muggy summers and wet winters directly impact your crawl space in a negative way. Moisture, whether in the air or from precipitation, will lead mold, bugs, and sagging floors. AquaGuard stops these issues from arising with dehumidifiers, vapor barriers, crawl space supports and more – keeping your home permanently protected from damage.  

Foundation Repair in Athens

Your foundation requires strong soil to rest on. Without good soil, your foundation is at risk of collapse. Unfortunately, Athens’ sandy soils and above-average annual rainfall create a challenging environment for your foundation. When too much water is absorbed into the soil, it becomes soft, muddy, and eroded. As it leaks below your foundation, certain problem signs arise such as wall cracks, stuck doors and windows, settlement, and nail pops. Using solutions such as pier systems, wall anchors, and carbon fiber reinforcement, AquaGuard provides lasting protection for your foundation.   

Concrete Lifting & Leveling in Athens

Concrete’s greatest threat is weak soil. Athens’ humid environment and above-average rain seeps beneath concrete structures and leads to uneven sidewalks or cracked driveways. However, AquaGuard has a solution that lifts concrete back into place. PolyRenewal™, a polyurethane injection system, is waterproof and quickly fills voids in soil. This innovative solution is injected below damaged concrete, where it hardens in just 15 minutes and can support the weight of your car. We use PolyRenewal™ to fix pool decks, sidewalks, driveways, and more and your property.

FAQs

About Waterproofing, Foundation Repair & Crawl Spaces in Atlanta

Waterproofing a basement may prove to be a long-term solution to many health and safety issues a homeowner can face. It will make the basement dry and thus prevent mold from growing. It also shields you from rot and other damage caused by the humidity.

The best way to waterproof a basement is to install a vapor barrier that will shield it from humidity. The barrier is applied to the wall directly and is relatively easy to install. It’s also a long-term solution that will last for decades.

Sometimes, it may also be useful to install a drain that will collect the humidity that gets into the home and directs it to the sump pump system. That way, the water is removed from the home and moved where it can’t cause damage.

Push piers are used to stabilize your home once it starts shifting or sinking. This often happens, unevenly causing the home to sink to one side and piers are driven below the home to level and prevent it from sinking and getting damaged further. 

It’s often wrongly believed that it’s the piers that keep the home up. In fact, the piers are used to transfer the weight of the home to the sturdy ground below and it’s that soil that actually supports your home after the piers are installed. Push piers are driven into the soil and the weight of the home itself presents a counterbalance holding the structure up.

It’s an extremely dangerous and delicate procedure that should be left to those who have experience in the field and know how to choose the right piers for your home as well as install them safely.

The first thing to do when you notice cracks and sinking concrete slabs in your driveway is to do what you can to not make matters worse. That means that you shouldn’t put extra pressure on the driveway by parking on it or by waking over it more than you have to. That should give you plenty of time to repair the problem before the slab sinks further. 

It’s also important to figure out what’s causing the cracks. If it’s an issue with the concrete itself, there’s little you can do but to replace it altogether. If the sinking and cracking are caused by a structural problem, you should contact experts to lift it and repair the soil beneath it. 

There are a few ways to do so, but using PolyRenewal injections is proven to be the most effective in the long run and the least disruptive to your home.

Mold and mildew are serious health risks and they should be treated as such. They can affect your health and especially respiratory organs if you’re subjected to them for a long time. This is especially a concern for those with asthma or other respiratory problems. It’s best to make sure that your home is mold-free even if you’re otherwise healthy. 

This is done by removing the conditions that make it possible for mold to appear in the first place. That’s usually dampness and darkness since that’s where mold usually grows. Basements are therefore an especially attractive part of your property for these fungi. 

Make sure that the basement is properly waterproofed and that excess moisture is removed from it and you won’t have issues with mold ever again.

Crawl space water damage is an enormous liability for homeowners—it can be expensive to repair structural damages and put the health of residents at risk. Crawl space encapsulation not only can give future homeowners peace of mind, but it brings with it the added benefits of extra storage space, increased energy efficiency, and improved air quality. So, yes—crawl space encapsulation can increase home value!
