OUR SERVICES FOR YOU

Foundation Repair in Savannah

The foundation of your home is responsible for keeping everything above it solid and stable. If the foundation fails, you’re risking the rest of your home as well. The soil in Savannah varies greatly, with more than 21 unique varieties. But they all have one thing in common, clay. Clay soil combined with Savannah’s 49 inches of rain per year is a big problem. When clay soil gets wet it expands, putting pressure on foundation walls and causing them to bow inward. This bowing causes cracks which not only makes your foundation unsound but also allows water to enter freely. Mount Valley Foundation Services has developed engineered foundation products like wall repair systems, helical piers, and carbon fiber straps to address any foundation issue your home has. 

Crawl Space Encapsulation & Repair in Savannah

Your Savannah crawl space is responsible for keeping your home off the damp earth. This 2- to 3-foot-tall area, however, is little help in protecting your home’s support system if it’s unfinished. Water and humidity, cause mold and mildew. Mold weakens the wooden support structures, putting your home at risk. And Savannah’s weather is no help. The nearly 50 inches of rain and humid summers mean moisture is present in your crawl space year-round. Stop water and moisture from causing problems by encapsulating your crawl space. Encapsulation drains water with specialty drainage and sump pumps and seals out humidity with a high-quality vapor barrier. The result is dry, usable space. 

Basement Waterproofing in Savannah

A wet basement is so common in Savannah that homeowners might get used to it. It’s not okay to simply clean up the water, repeated water intrusion causes mold growth, musty odors, and condensation, and can weaken your foundation. While the cause may be simply a plumbing leak, the more likely cause is environmental factors. Savannah has clay soil, meaning it holds water easily and expands, combined with the 49 inches of rainfall annually, it’s easy to see why your basement may be wet. Luckily, Mount Valley Foundation Services offers below-grade drainage, sump pumps with backup pumps for ultimate protection, and dehumidifiers when needed.   

Concrete Lifting & Leveling in Savannah

The concrete structures around your home, like your driveway and sidewalk slabs, ultimately suffer the same fate as your foundation thanks to the area’s expansive clay soil and the above-average rainfall. The 49 inches of rain per year Savannah receives is absorbed by the expansive clay and pushed on the concrete slab causing it to crack and become uneven. Sinking concrete is not only unsightly, but it is also a serious tripping hazard and steals value from your home. Mount Valley Foundation uses polyurethane injections to lift and level your concrete. Gone are the days of messy mudjacking and replacement that don’t address the root cause of the problem. PolyRenewal™ is injected below the slab, stabilizing the soil and gently lifting the slab into place. Your concrete is ready to use in as little as 15 minutes.

FAQs

Soil issues are the main culprit behind foundation damage. When soil becomes too wet, too dry, or is not packed together tightly enough, foundation problems occur. Wall anchors work to remove soil from the equation all together so that your foundation doesn’t have to depend on it to stay afloat. Instead, the strength of the wall anchors becomes the primary force that keeps your home secure! 

First, turn off your main water supply if the leak is significant or a pipe has burst. This is considered a plumbing emergency, and most professional services will respond immediately. Turning off your water will avoid leakage if the leaks are small or you can’t discover them, but it may not be the most effective way to deal with the matter. Instead, contact a professional basement specialist and request a thorough, free evaluation of your property. They’ll be able to pinpoint the source of the leaks and any secondary damage, as well as design a personalized solution to the problems your home is experiencing as a result. 

Most homeowners, understandably, prefer to do their own house maintenance.  However, we recommend that basement moisture problems be left to the professionals. DIY options might cause more damage if things go wrong during the process. Your local home improvement store is likely to provide a variety of basement waterproofing options.  

Although they may appear to be effective solutions at first sight, they are typically not long-lasting and fail to solve your problem permanently. Instead, you’ll find yourself repeating the same project over and over, never fixing the issue at the source. As a result, moisture will continue to enter your basement. 

Yes, uneven concrete can usually be repaired and brought back to its former brilliance. Other methods of restoration are required if the concrete has experienced too much damage in the form of severe fractures, dramatic settling, or missing pieces. Lifting and stabilizing concrete that isn’t excessively fractured or uneven is possible, but slabs that are beyond repair may need to be totally removed and repoured. Because this may be costly and time-consuming, it is better to address possible issues as soon as they arise.
