Basement Problem Signs in Athens

Basement damage is more than just trickles of water or widespread flooding. While these are the most obvious issues, there are many other problem signs you will notice throughout your Athens basement and home if it lacks proper water and moisture management systems. These include mold, efflorescence, wet walls, wet floors, flooded stairs, condensation, humidity, pests, and musty smells. The sooner you spot these problems the better so that your home can be repaired and protected with affordable, effective solutions. If these problems are left alone to worsen over time, they will harm your family’s health, negatively impact your home’s structural integrity, and cost more to fix.

Causes of Basement Damage in Athens

Basements in Baltimore can sustain water intrusion and damage for a variety of reasons. Because the basement typically houses Exterior forces like the soil under and around your Athens home, the weather, the clay bowl effect, and hydrostatic pressure are behind most of your basement damage. Most of the soil throughout Athens is well-drained sandy loam, but clay is also in the mix. With the 48 inches of rain Athens typically receives, the soil can easily erode and wash away or become oversaturated. As water collects in this inundated, unstable soil next to your basement, it forms a “clay bowl” and results in hydrostatic pressure that leads to wall cracks and leaks. Other causes, namely internal sources, include plumbing leaks, a leaking water heater, and a faulty sump pump

My pool deck was settling in some places and popping up near trees. There were cracks in every corner and separation gaps in others. I called for an appointment and the team of Raymond and Paul arrived. They were very honest about what I could expect given the situation. But they are perfectionists! What a difference in removing trip hazards and filling the gaps. The pool deck is level again and ready to be painted in only a few hours. Great job guys! Give them a call. They’re good folks to do business with and you will be happy with the results.

We had sinking sections of our pool decking as well as our front porch. Shawn and Justin came and injected that amazing foam and now both are much better! Shawn explained what had been done and even gave me his cell number in case my husband, who was not there at the time, had any questions about what had been done. The area was cleaned up before they left. Each man was respectful of the property and very courteous and polite to me. Great job! We are pleased.

4 years and 9 months after installation, our pump failed. Aquaguard's representative, Scott Cunningham, arrived on time, advised me that the warranty was in effect for 3 more months and replaced the unit at no cost. Just as the original installation team, Scott was very professional and efficient in his assessment, offer of options, and service. Excellent product and service.

Kurt, Samarte, and Chris D did an excellent job, very professional. They kept us informed of everything that they were doing. Answered all of our questions ( we had a bunch ), and never once got irritated with us. I would recommend AquaGuard for all of your basement, crawl spaces, or gutter ( which we'll be getting ) services. If I could give more than a 5 star I would.

Great experience! Mike Morgan, Certified Field Inspector, was so knowledgeable. He knew how to remedy the wet area in our crawl space. The AquaGuard installers, Shaquan, Trey, and Trey could not have been nicer and were very professional. They worked tirelessly. The finished product is not only beautiful but works great. Our crawl space now has a drainage system, with a pump and dehumidifier. The crawl space is encapsulated. We highly recommend AquaGuard. Thank you Mike, Shaquan, Trey and Trey!

Tim and Davon, the AquaGuard team, were knowledgeable about the project and explained the procedures that would be completed. They worked effectively until finished. Then Tim showed photos of the work in the crawlspace. He used a laser and ruler in the dining room and kitchen while Davon turned the jack screws under the house until the desired height was achieved. A very professional job by the AquaGuard team.

Our retaining wall that holds the driveway and brick wall on one side of house cracked. There're also major cracks on concrete floor on our front porch. We contacted AquaGuard Foundation Solutions to see if they could help with those issues. They came to give estimate in a timely manner. Zach came to inspect our house and suggested to have 7 steel piers installed under one side of the house that showed cracks and poly-foam fill under the concrete floor on the front porch. About a week later, Tim and Davon came to do the pier installation. Upon the installation, I asked them if the crack on the retaining wall was normal and how steer piers would help with the situation. They answered my questions professionally and suggested that in this situation they would rather do helical piers in the retaining wall area instead of putting steel piers which would sit under the cinder block base and could damage the integrity of the retaining wall and driveway. We agreed with the idea of putting helical piers in the retaining wall area. Tim made all the necessary phone calls and had our contract/estimate adjusted. Tim and Davon were super friendly and easy to talk to. They finished the job in a timely manner. However AquaGuard couldn't do anything with the cracked concrete on the front porch as a gap between the soil base and concrete floor was too large. The foundation repair also comes with a 1-year inspection. Thanks AquaGuard.

Our basement was a complete mess, standing water, foundational supports collapsing, mold, spiders, smell of Georgia red clay, etc. If left unchecked, the foundational supports would give, and the house would eventually collapse as well as mold started making its way up into the house, and the air unhealthy to breath. AquaGuard built a 4-foot barrier wall that was backfilled to shore up existing support beams as well as installed 3 IntelliJack Supports. New drainage systems were introduced that feeds into two separate sump pumps with associated power backup and a dehumidifier added that will manages humidity. Further, a vapor barrier was added across the entire basement and vents sealed, thus an enclosed basement simulation. Once work was completed by AquaGuard, the basement is like new and habitable. I trusted in AquaGuard professionalism to deliver, and they truly satisfied my expectations. I welcome anyone to come see for themself.
