Water Drainage Problems and Foundation Damage Southwest Marietta, GA

Throughout Georgia, one constant element poses challenges to homes, lawns, and gardens: good ole Georgia red clay. Georgia’s infamous soil is a specific class of soil called an Ultisol. Ultisols are known for their rich red color, high density, high acidity, and relatively low mineral content. Red clay is heavy, it clumps together, it produces sub-optimal growth, it stains your clothes – truly it can be a pain in the neck. In many aspects, ultisols are great for building. They are not as finicky when it comes to swelling or shrinking based on water content. They are stress tolerant, giving good support for foundations. However, an area where Georgia red clay causes problems (aside from it being difficult for gardens and lawn care) is that it often presents water drainage problems.

One of the most damaging problems that can harm your home’s foundation is improper water drainage. While many states have soil that presents problems with swelling and shrinking, Georgia’s red clay presents the problem of standing water and erosion. When Georgia experiences heavier than normal rainfall, homes often suffer. Homes foundations built on clay soils can often be unequally raised or allowed to settle at different points. Dynamic soil movements and structural foundation design problems combine to cause unacceptable home foundation problems.

Because your home rests on its foundation, the foundation of your home must be protected. Hundreds of thousands of pounds rest upon your home’s foundation, and when it is compromised it can lead to huge safety concerns, loss in your home’s value, and even irreparable damage.

If you notice water drainage problems around your home’s foundation, it needs to be addressed as soon as possible. If your home’s stability has not yet been compromised, it is essential that you take necessary steps to prevent water drainage problems and foundation damage. If your home’s foundation has been compromised, foundation repairs require a reputable foundation repair contractor to inspect the property and determine the proper methods for correction.

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.
