Crawl Encapsulation and Repair in Valdosta, GA
Valdosta receives around 52 inches of rain every year, while the national average is around 38 inches. The rain, combined with the hot, humid summers introduces high levels of moisture in your crawl space. When moisture builds below your home, wood rot, mold, or pest infestations become likely and lead to problems such as sagging floors, increased energy bills, and poor air quality throughout your home. At Alpha Foundations, our encapsulation system prevents mold spores and moist air. We install drainage and a sump pump to remove excess groundwater. Our dehumidifier keeps your crawl space extra dry, which can help during muggy South Georgia summers and cloudy winters in Valdosta. Don’t wait, call us if you notice any of these crawl space issues in your Valdosta home.
Concrete Lifting Repair in Valdosta, GA
Valdosta’s above-average rain and the area’s sandy soil are the main reason for your sunken concrete slabs. You may notice cracking, uneven segments, or sinking concrete on your driveway, patio, or other concrete structures around your Valdosta property. Alpha Foundations has the solution to sinking, cracking concrete: polyurethane injection. We use PolyRenewal™, a durable, polyurethane material that is installed below any concrete structure to level it out to its original position. Unlike older methods such as mudjacking, the polyurethane injection process is clean, efficient, and waterproof and dries in about 15 minutes. With this solution, you avoid potential tripping hazards or damage to your vehicles, and you restore the curb appeal of your home.
Foundation Repair in Valdosta, GA
Like your concrete slabs, the reason your home is sinking is likely because of the more than 50 inches of rain and Valdosta’s sandy soil. Much like your home is supported by its foundation, a foundation is supported by the soil it rests on. So, if the soil becomes unsupportive, your Valdosta foundation will begin to settle. When indoors, look for cracking walls, uneven floors, or stuck doors and windows. When outdoors, look for stair-step cracking in exterior walls or a tilting chimney. Don’t wait until the problem gets worse or your home might become at risk of major structural damage. Alpha Foundations has the solutions you need for foundation repair. Using our galvanized steel pier systems, we can stabilize and support any sinking foundation. Piers are driven into the sturdy soils deep below the top layer of soil to ensure they will not move even during the rainiest seasons.

About Waterproofing, Crawl Spaces & Foundation Repair in Valdosta, GA
Mold is a microorganism that is capable of triggering allergies, illness, or in the worst case scenario, hazardous breathing problems. Long-term exposure to mold damages your respiratory system, so a moldy crawl space is a health hazard. Even if you don’t spend much time don’t in your home’s crawl space, mold can still cause health problems because of the stack effect.
This is because the air in your basement or crawl space rises into your home and pollutes the air. Mold releases spores in the crawl space, so the air that rises into your home is infected with spores and other particles from the crawl space. Breathing this poor air quality in for months on end can lead to health issues. Plus, your nose quickly becomes used to the smell of mold, which can make identifying it even harder. Stay alert.
Mold is so persistent that you need to get remediation specialists to remove it. Professional mold removal is guaranteed to remove all mold from your Orlando crawl space, even the mold in places you never considered. Next, you’ll want to waterproof your basement with the help of the experts at Alpha Foundations. If moisture can enter your crawl space, mold always has a chance to grow.
Alpha Foundations can offer your Orlando home a wide variety of foundation repair solutions such as SettleStop IntelliBrace™ I-beam system. Both can help to stabilize and brace your foundation against future moisture damage despite working in different ways.
Carbon fiber wall straps are mainly used to stabilize your foundation wall against bowing inward. Carbon fiber is actually 10 times stronger than steel. It can brace against the toughest pressure with ease. When applied to your foundation wall with our tough epoxy resin, it becomes that much stronger. Once these straps are firmly secured to your wall, you do not have to worry about any more future repairs.
Our SettleStop IntelliBrace™ system, on the other hand, will actively push back against any bowing damage your foundation may face. Each I-beam is attached to your wall via heavy braces along the top and bottom of each beam. The top braces are then slowly tightened over time to repair your bowed-in foundation wall and protect it from bowing in the future.
Jammed doors and windows are a common sign of foundation settling. Foundation settling occurs when the soil layer under the foundation erodes and becomes uneven. Differential settling is the name given to foundation settlement that causes stuck doors and windows. When differential settling occurs, a house is settling sideways, and part of the foundation is breaking off from the rest of the house. Because the home is at an angle, door frames and window frames become warped and cause jammed doors and windows.
Sometimes this tilt lifts a home’s floor. If the floor is uneven and one part of it is raised enough to graze the bottom of your home’s doorframes, it can make doors difficult to open. Jammed doors and windows are a huge indicator that the settling has been going on for a while. Consider contacting Alpha Foundations for immediate foundation repair solutions.
Our team recommends helical and push piers that are installed deep underground in sturdy soils. The piers are also attached to the foundation so that they can transfer the weight of your home to these deep soils. Plus, the rods are made of galvanized steel to prevent corrosion. Both pier systems are permanent solutions to foundation settling, so they don’t require replacing every few years. Your doors and windows will be functional immediately and stay that way forever.
Foundations are vulnerable to all kinds of moisture damage. For instance, the soil supporting your Orlando’s foundation is made of loose sandy soils that are susceptible to washout. Even just one large storm can easily wash away sandy soil and cause the foundation to begin sinking. The already loose nature of sandy soil does not help. In fact, loose soil can start even before your home has been built.
Basically, contractors need to dig a large hole in the area where they plan to lay down the concrete slab foundation or crawl space. After each component is secured, there will be some space left around them that the contractors will then backfill in with some of the soil they initially dug up. This leads to the clay bowl effect. When this occurs, the much looser fill soil is far more susceptible to washing out as a result of the contractors’ construction methods.
Another way your foundation becomes damaged is through hydrostatic pressure. Orlando’s consistent rainfall can lead to the soil absorbing far more water than it is realistically capable of holding at once. This can create immense pressure against the foundation and cause it to shift out of its original placement or even crack apart.
