Foundation Problems in Georgia
Foundation repair in Georgia is a serious topic that requires attention from trained professionals. However, many homeowners see the signs of foundation repair and believe they can remedy the situation themselves. This most often ends in more extensive damage to your Georgia home. Signs that your home may be in need of foundation repair include:
- bowing or leaning walls
- cracked walls or floors
- gaps and spaces
- beam and post problems
- sticking doors or windows
- cracks in driveway or garage columns
If you’ve noticed any of these problems around your home or business, the best solution is to call Atlas Piers of Atlanta and have a professional repair the damage. These are just minor symptoms of a much larger problem that most likely needs to be fixed with underpinning and some form of encapsulation. Treating the minor problem, such as filling in a crack on your wall, will not solve the issue as a whole.
Foundation Repair Georgia Solutions for Your Home or Business
There are many different types of piers or pilings that work well depending on a number of factors including age and condition of your foundation, the extent of damage, and the type of the soil in your area. Contact us today to diagnose your problems and get you back on the right track. Every home in Georgia is different, as well as the type of foundation repair we will recommend. Most of your homes foundation repairs will be done by installing piers of various different types under your foundation to raise and support it. The heavier your home the more piers we will need to use because they’ll need to be installed closer together. We have engineers on staff that can evaluate the type of foundation problems you are having. The signs of foundation failure include bowing walls, leaning walls, sloping floors, wall cracks, floor cracks, foundation cracks, water stains, slab cracks, garage column cracks, sticking doors and windows, and stairs or stoops pulling away from the foundation. If you see these signs, call us to evaluate your home or business. We work in both commercial and residential underpinning.

Crawlspace Repair and Encapsulation in Georgia
If you have a crawlspace in your Georgia home or business, you probably don’t check on it as often as you should. It is a good idea to check it from time to time to see if it is damp or wet. A damp or wet crawlspace can not only cause damage to the structure of your home by rotting out the wood and joists, but it can cause mold and mildew to grow. Mold and mildew can cause some serious health issues for you and your family. Some of these are:
- Nasal and sinus problems
- Eye irritation
- Respiratory problems
- Throat irritation
- Skin irritation
A wet or damp crawlspace is also an inviting place for insects and critters. High humidity in your home is also a sign that you have a wet or damp crawlspace.
The professionals at Atlas Piers of Atlanta has the solution for your wet or damp crawlspace in your Georgia home or business. We can do crawlspace encapsulation using a vapor barrier. This vapor barrier lines the walls of your crawlspace keeping it moisture free. The vapor barrier we use for crawlspace encapsulation is made by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leading manufacturer of foundation repair and basement waterproofing products in the industry.
The ECP vapor barrier is 10-mil and 16-mil thick and is puncture resistant. The thin vapor retarders that you can buy at your local hardware store are only 6-mil thick and are not puncture resistant. Once even a small hole gets into the material, it is useless. Let the experts at Atlas Piers of Atlanta repair your crawlspace using the best materials available. Once your crawlspace in encapsulated with a vapor barrier, you will notice that your energy bills are lower. The vapor barrier acts as an insulation keeping the home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
