Foundation Repair, Basement & Crawl Space Contractor in Asheville, NC
When most people buy a home, they aren’t thinking of the regional qualities that can cause foundation issues. Even though Asheville isn’t a coastal city, the soil conditions and climate with above-average humidity and rain can cause cracking, settling, or other issues with your foundation. Attempting to fix foundation problems yourself is dangerous, but Carolina Foundation Solutions is here to simplify the process.
In addition to foundation problems, basements and crawl spaces can collect water from significant storms, leading to mold development and unsanitary conditions. It’s vital to work with an expert to remove this standing water and ensure it doesn’t come back.

- Cracking or sloping in floors

You can perform a brief visual inspection yourself, but a professional from Carolina Foundation Solutions can perform a detailed assessment to catch symptoms most people wouldn’t notice.
Leaning Chimney in Asheville? Call Carolina Foundation Solutions
If your chimney starts to bow and lean away from your house, it’s not a development to ignore, as it can cause further damage to other home structures. Carolina Foundation Solutions will determine the cause of your leaning chimney and apply the appropriate repair strategy.
Retaining & Basement Wall Services
Both retaining and basement walls are subject to intense pressure from the soil they hold back, and shifts in that soil can cause the walls to bow and crack. Our team can stop retaining and basement walls from shifting further and straighten them over time.
Basement & Crawl Space Waterproofing in Asheville
Carolina Foundation Solutions can mitigate flooding and protect your home’s basement or crawl space from water damage. Our basement waterproofing services will address your barriers, integral structures, and drainage systems so that water cannot destroy your foundation.
Your basement is built below ground level, so it’s particularly prone to flood damage. Its proximity to your foundation makes it a potentially devastating entry point for water. Waterproofing will:
- Prevent wood from rotting in response to humidity
- Reduce the odds of a black mold infestation
- Inhibit structural damage and protect your basement edges and joints
- Limit mildew or mold growth and the odors that come with it
- Moisture vapor barrier systems that prevent mold and keep your basement dry.
- Diverters that move water away from unprotected structures and guide it into a drain tile system.
- Drainage systems to prevent flooding while diverting water.
- Sump pump installations to detect rising water levels and trigger a pumping sequence.
- Battery backups so that all your waterproofing systems function when the municipal grid lets you down.
Our holistic approach to flooding protects your foundation and prevents mold spores from spreading throughout your home. We specialize in foundation and structural services to offer top-notch results.
