Does Your Basement Need a Healthcheck? Southwest Marietta, GA
piers installed to support sagging floor

Suburban homes are commonly built on basements. This added square footage provides excess space for family members to spread out, makes room for extra storage, and allows easy entry from the backyard. While the basement is not considered the “heart of the home,” it is often the best indicator of your home’s health. The next time you are in your basement organizing your seasonal décor or planning your spring cleaning, make a point of looking around for signs of basement wall failure. Deterioration and shifting basement walls can lead to your home’s foundational failure, which is why your basement needs a regular health check.

Basement walls may be pre-cast concrete, masonry blocks, or even part of a post-tension slab system. Common problems with basement walls, especially load-bearing walls, include walls that bow inward or outward, and cracks in basement walls. When basement walls show these signs, your home could be very close to having a major structural problem. Problems with basement foundations can cause pressure on your wood framing and cracks in your interior drywall or exterior brick, block, or stone walls. Failure to properly fix these problems can threaten your home’s structural integrity and negatively affect the value of your home.

Your home is likely the largest investment you will make in your lifetime. Issues with basement walls indicate future problems for your home. When the structural integrity of your house is compromised, not only is the value of your home compromised, but the safety of your home can no longer be guaranteed. Your loved ones and your investment can all be lost if you choose to ignore poor health signs in your basement.

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
