The inspector noted wet, soggy insulation, and the piers supporting the foundation sunk into the soft soil due to the excess moisture in the crawl space. The cracks and sagging floors Norman experienced were a direct result of a sinking foundation. The inspector designed a custom solution to stabilize the foundation and encapsulate the crawl space to reduce moisture and humidity. SmartJacks were installed to support the joists and main beams in the crawl space which closed the gaps in the home’s drywall. A Complete CleanSpace Encapsulation System was installed to reduce moisture and remove excess humidity completed the project. Norman was thrilled!

Keith S. of Bonaire, GA had lived in his home for four years before his floors started to sag. He was unsure of what to do. After seeing an ad in a local newspaper for Lowcountry Basement Systems, he decided to call and learn more about his foundation problem.
Lowcountry Basement Systems sent Kris Evans to do a full inspection of Keith’s crawl space. Kris examined the home, inside and out and suggested that Keith have eight SmartJacks® installed to support his weakened subfloor. The project took one day to complete, and Keith saw immediate results.
Richard and Michelle C. of Bonaire, GA built a new home in 2000, 16 years later they decided to sell it and move closer to their children. After listing the house, potential buyers noticed a crack in the foundation wall. Not one offer was made after four months. Richard and Michelle decided the only way the house would sell, was if they fixed their foundation problem.
Michelle called Lowcountry Basement Systems and scheduled an appointment with Brian Townsel, an inspector from Lowcountry Basement Systems. Brian recommended stabilizing the foundation using helical piers. Once the house was stabilized, it provided them an opportunity to lift the foundation wall back into place, closing crack
After the project was completed, Richard and Michelle had no trouble selling their home. In fact, Lowcountry Basement System’s 25-year warranty on the helical piers was an added bonus for the new homeowners.
Clint G. of Bonaire, GA had a water intrusion problem in his crawl space. He went online to learn more about mold, mold spores and how to prevent mold growth in crawl spaces. During his search, Clint came across Lowcountry Basement Systems’ website where he learned about our Complete CleanSpace Encapsulation System that removes moisture and prevents mold growth.
Clint decided to encapsulate his crawl space and fix the problem. Lowcountry Basement Systems installed CleanSpace Liner over the ground, around the piers and foundation walls to seal out moisture. A SaniDry CX dehumidifier was installed to collected moisture from the air. A TripleSafe Sump Pump collected the water and pumped it away from the house. The foundation walls were insulated with EverLast Panels. The vents were sealed with CleanSpace Vent Covers and the crawl space door was replaced with an EverLast CrawlSpace Door. No moisture means no mold.
The project took four days to complete and Clint no longer worried about mold growing in his crawl space.
Carl P. of Warner Robbins, GA had a pool in his backyard. Over time, Carl noticed a crack in the walkway; part of the concrete started to sink. Carl showed his pool repairman the issues, then the repairman recommended that Carl call Lowcountry Basement Systems for a free PolyLevel quote.
Brian Townsel of Lowcountry Basement Systems inspected the cracked concrete and measured the sunken slab. Brian told Carl his concrete didn’t have to be replaced. PolyLevel could stabilize the concrete and lift it back into place.
Carl decided to repair his concrete rather than replace it, and he saved lots of money.
Personal Trainer, Joan F. of Warner Robins, GA wanted to transform her basement into a home gym for her clients. She was embarrassed to let her clients in the basement because of the amount of flooding that occurred frequently in one area of the basement. After some online research she decided to call Lowcountry Basement Systems to set up a free inspection.
We decided to waterproof Joan's basement with our SuperSump pump and SaniDry System. Our SuperSump pump is designed to evacuate any flowing water and moisture that enters the basement. Our SaniDry is a dehumidifying system that circulates dry air throughout the space.
After installation, Joan was so impressed by how clean our team was with her area throughout the entire process. She was thrilled with the results, and is ready to build her home gym to bring her clients to!
Thomas K. of Warner Robins, GA contacted Lowcountry Basement Systems when he became concerned about the moisture in his crawl space he had been noticing on a day to day basis. He was also concerned about the longevity of his home's foundation because his living room was sagging by an inch. He knew he needed our help.
Our inspector, Dan Friesen, carefully took notes and pictures of the crawl space and reported the issues back to the homeowner. He suggested that the homeowner have the crawl space completely encapsulated with our Cleanspace, a seven-layer reinforced laminate that isolates the home from the earth completely and reduces humidity levels. The encapsulation also entails a SaniDry Sedona, a dehumidifier that maintains the relative humidity in the crawl space to prevent moisture and microbial growth. With Thomas' living room, Dan explained that Thomas had no foundational support under that area of the home, and he should have our SmartJacks installed, which are galvanized steel column supports that lift sagging floor joists.
After five days of installation, the crawl space was completely encapsulated and the home was lifted back to its original and safe position. Thomas was thrilled with the outcome!
Guy W. of Warner Robins, GA had a brick front porch that was a mess! Guy and his wife were embarrassed to have any family or friends over because it was a safety hazard for anyone to even get to the front door. He knew that the front of his home was settling because his porch was separating away from his house and the slab had dropped about an inch. He thought there was no solution to these problems until he called Lowcountry Basement Systems. He scheduled a free appointment with one of our trusted inspectors to receive an estimate on his porch.
Our inspector, Brian Hunter, suggested that Guy have PolyLevel installed to attempt to lift the slab and to push the porch back towards the home. PolyLevel, a high-density polyurethane, was injected through a dime-sized hole in the concrete. It then expanded beneath the concrete slab to lift it back to its desired height.
This project only took one day to complete, and the homeowner was absolutely thrilled. His porch is no longer a mess, and he was eager to invite some friends and family over for dinner!

The homeowners saw an ad for Lowcountry Basement Systems foundation repair services and called for a free estimate. The inspector from Lowcountry Basement Systems recommended installing a Push Pier System to stabilize the sinking slab near the stairwell to protect it from further movement.

This homeowner had a musty smell in his Perry, GA home. He described it as “mildew-y”. Gregory was concerned that he had high levels of moisture in his crawl space. He went online to find a company who could help fix the humidity under his house and came across Lowcountry Basement Systems. He called and requested a free inspection.
After a thorough evaluation, the inspector found signs of high humidity which was causing mildew, wood rot and microbial growth on the floor joists. The inspector showed him pictures of his crawl space, and recommended encapsulating the crawl space to remove moisture and reduce humidity.
By sealing the crawl space off from the earth, moisture would not be able to enter home. It would help lower his electric bill, and prevent microbial growth in his crawl space. The homeowner decided to have the work done. In less than three days the job was complete. It took about a week for him to notice a difference in his home, and he was thrilled!
John C. of Warner Robins, GA noticed cracks near his doorways and was frustrated that the doors were not closing properly in his home. John grew increasingly aggravated every day that his family had to deal with the door problem. Every day, he watched the cracks in the drywall above grow. He finally had enough of it, and searched for a company that could fix the problem for him. John called Lowcountry Basement Systems and scheduled an inspection.
An inspector from Lowcountry Basement Systems completed a thorough evaluation under and in John’s home. The inspector noted the cracks in the drywall, the unlevel floors beneath the door, and the failing crawl space piers supporting the subfloor of John’s home. The inspector designed a custom solution to fix the door problem.
More support was needed beneath the home, in the crawl space. It was recommended to install a SmartJack System to support the sagging beams and floor joists below. With proper support the foundation could be lifted, fixing the door problem and closing the gaps in the cracked drywall.
John decided to have the work done and in less than one day his floors were back to level and the doors were closing properly. John and his family were thrilled!
Norman H. of Macon, GA had a problem with his floors, they were sagging, bouncing, and soft in some spots. Norman also noticed drywall cracks near his door frames. Norman finally had enough of walking around the squeaking parts of his family's home and went underneath his house to look at the crawl space. Norman realized right away his house needed help and called the experts at Lowcountry Basement Systems.
Lowcountry Basement Systems sent an inspector to Norman’s house. He examined the crawl space and documented what he saw: soggy, wet insulation next to the subfloor in some areas, and fallen insulation on the dirt floor. The pier columns supporting the foundation sunk due to the soft soil under home, caused by excess moisture in the area. The inspector informed Norman his floors were sagging because his foundation was settling into the ground, that settlement was tearing the drywall in his home above. The inspector designed a custom solution to stabilize the foundation and recommended encapsulating the crawl space to reduce moisture and humidity.
Galvanized steel SmartJacks were installed to lift and support the joists and main beams in the crawl space. The lifting action closed the gaps in the drywall above. Additionally, a Complete CleanSpace Encapsulation System was installed to reduce moisture and removing excess humidity. Norman was very happy that the problem was fixed!
Jason P. of Bonaire, GA had a problem in his backyard. One side of his pool deck had settled at an angle that created a tripping hazard for his children that loved to run around the pool. Jason didn’t want his family getting hurt, so he looked for a company that could fix it with mudjacking. However, during his research he discovered a much better alternative by Lowcountry Basement Systems: PolyLevel.
PolyLevel lifts and stabilizes sinking concrete slabs. It is a high-density, lightweight polyurethane formula. Instead of the expensive and messy “mud” mixture of sand, water and cement that takes days to cure, PolyLevel only takes 15 minutes to cure. Unlike mudjacking which can take one-to-two days to install, PolyLevel is injected under sinking slabs through dime-sized holes. This sounded like a great option to Jason, who opted to have PolyLevel installed under his concrete.
Lowcountry Basement Systems repaired Jason’s pool deck in less than a day and the tripping hazard was removed. It was finally safe for his kids to run and play around the pool once again. Jason was thrilled!
Troy T. of Warner Robins, GA had problems with his floors. The center of his house had sunk in on itself and gaps appeared under the walls as a result. Worried about the home collapsing entirely, Troy researched foundation repair solutions.
One evening, Troy saw an ad for Lowcountry Basement Systems on Macon’s CBS channel 13 and called the next morning for a free estimate. A thorough inspection of Troy’s home inside and in the crawl space revealed that the home was not properly supported by the piers in the crawl space. The inspector recommended installing adjustable galvanized steel SmartJacks to stabilize the beams and joists under the home. The SmartJacks could also provide an opportunity to lift the sinking floors.
Troy had the work done, and in less than one day the foundation was properly supported and the gaps under the walls closed.
Mark G. of Bonaire, GA called Lowcountry Basement Systems with a problem. His 12-foot long front porch sank and cracked. The drop was over an inch in one area and Mark wanted to fix it before it worsened. One evening he saw an ad on Macon’s NBC 41 for free concrete repair inspections and called Lowcountry Basement Systems the next day.
An inspector from Lowcountry Basement Systems visited the home and recommended a custom solution to stabilize the porch. This below-grade solution was slab piers, made of galvanized steel to prevent rust and are completely hidden from sight once installed. PolyLevel, would then be used to fill the voids from the slab piers; a structural grade polymer that quickly expands. In less than two days, Mark’s slab was lifted and supported and looked brand new! He was so thrilled with the results that he even wrote a raving Google review! “I always look for quality work. It is essential with me. I found this company to be just that professional, great customer service and 5 star work.” Thanks Mark!
George P. of Bonaire, GA had a pool in his backyard. Over time, he noticed the concrete pool deck began to sink. The sinking created tripping hazards and George did not want his grandchildren, or their friends, to hurt themselves while playing around the pool.
Lowcountry Basement Systems fixed George’s problem by lifting the sunken concrete using a product called PolyLevel. PolyLevel is a waterproof, structural grade polymer that can lift pool decks, driveways, porches and sidewalks. The pool deck project took just a few hours, and within 15 minutes the PolyLevel cured and was safe for George’s family once more.
George was thrilled. The process was simple, easy and he didn’t have to tear out any concrete.
Mike H. of Kathleen, GA had a problem two years ago that was not completely fixed, and that problem created a new problem for Mike. Two years ago, Mike said, his shower had a leak. The subfloor absorbed the water and weakened. The weakened subfloor then sunk, and his shower started cracking.
Mike needed to have the area beneath his shower properly supported so the shower would not fall through the floor. Mike called Lowcountry Basement Systems for help. A SmartJack System was installed in the crawl space beneath the shower to provide the support the area needed. SmartJacks are capable of support 60,000 pounds each.
The project took one day to complete and after it was done Mike was finally at ease with his shower.
Reginald C. of Warner Robins, GA purchased his home 15 years ago, but his foundation was settling before that. The jacks that were previously installed in the crawl space were not leveled properly, causing new cracks to appear in the walls above some of his doorways. Reginald asked some of his neighbors who they would suggest fixing the problem. He was referred to Lowcountry Basement Systems, specialists in crawl spaces and foundation support.
An inspector from Lowcountry Basement Systems visited Reginald’s home and performed a thorough inspection. The inspector documented the cracks and uneven floor in the home and recommended a custom solution to fix the problem. Four adjustable galvanized steel SmartJacks, capable of holding 60,000 pounds each, would be installed in the crawl space, underneath the sloping joist. Three supplemental PowerBrace beams were also added, and Reginald could now rest easy knowing his floors were level once again.
Gordon D. of Perry, GA noticed that his home had some settlement issues. His floors felt weak and sagged beneath his feet. Some of his windows and doors didn't open and close as easily as they once did. After doing some research online, Gordon realized that he had a foundation problem. He called Lowcountry Basement Systems for help.
Lowcountry Basement Systems sent an inspector to Gordon's home and inspected the foundation. After entering the crawl, it quickly became apparent that the moisture problem under the home was causing the settlement. As the joists, beams, and subfloor absorbed the moisture vapor, the wood softened, bowed, sagged and created the problems above.
Lowcountry Basement Systems installed a SmartJack System to stabilize the joists, beams, and subfloor. SmartJacks are crawl space support columns capable of supporting 60,000 pounds each. The project took two days to complete. After it was over Gordon was thrilled with the results!
Johnny P. of Perry, GA had a moisture problem in his crawl space. The moisture problem lead a mold problem. During an inspection from Lowcountry Basement Systems, mold was seen growing on joists, and sections of the ductwork.
Lowcountry Basement Systems fixed Johnny's crawl space by sealing off the house from the earth. By encapsulating the crawl space, installing a sump pump and a dehumidifier, the crawl space environment would not be moist enough to all mold to grow. Removing the moisture and reducing the humidity also benefited the wood joists and beams, as they would remain structurally sound.
After meeting with the inspector, Johnny decided to have the work done. It took two weeks for the crawl space to dry out and he was thrilled that his house no longer smelled like mold.
Keith S. of Bonaire, GA had a problem in his bathroom. The floor was sinking near the shower and toilet. Keith didn't want his floor to cave in on him so he went online to find a solution. In his search, he found Lowcountry Basement Systems and discovered that they could fix his foundation problem.
Keith scheduled a free inspection. The inspector noted the lack of support under the subfloor, directly below the bathroom floor. He recommended installing a SmartJack System to stabilize and lift the floor. SmartJacks are crawl space columns capable of supporting 60,000 pounds each. They are also coated in galvanized steel to prevent rust.
Keith liked the strategy and decided to move forward with the project. After everything was approved, the project was scheduled and the Lowcountry Basement Systems team fixed the sinking floor in two days. Keith was thrilled that he no longer had to worry about falling through the floor in the bathroom.
Tracey W. of Warner Robins, GA recently purchased his home. During the inspection process, he reviewed the status of the crawl space. Tracey noted the plastic laying over the ground. It wasn’t in great shape. The plastic didn’t seal the crawl space off from the earth and the crawl space vents allowed warm humid air under his home.
Tracey bought the home and hired Lowcountry Basement Systems to encapsulate his crawl space to prevent problems such as mold and wood rot. The first step in the process was to remove the plastic and other debris under the home. Then, CleanSpace liner was used to cover the earth, foundation walls and crawl space support columns. CleanSpace liner is a 20-mil thick, liner that reduces humidity and allows moisture to travel to a sump pump for removal from the foundation.
A sump pump and dehumidifier were installed after the crawl space vents were sealed and the leaky crawl space door was replaced. The job took four days for the Lowcountry Basement Systems team to complete. Tracey felt much better about his new home after Lowcountry protected his crawl space.
Every night, Bob and Iris G. of Warner Robins, GA would come home from work. And, every night they would drive their cars over the same bumps in their driveway. It was disheartening to work so hard, trying to create a nice life for themselves and yet they were greeted with a bumpy driveway when they got home.
After seeing an ad for concrete repair services from Lowcountry Basement Systems they called and schedule a free inspection of their problem. Lowcountry Basement Systems was able to stop the concrete driveway from settling further into the ground. Using PolyLevel, the concrete slab was stabilized and lifted. As the two slabs became level, the bump that bothered Bob and Iris disappeared.
PolyLevel lifts and stabilizes sinking concrete slabs with a high-density polyurethane formula. Small (dime-sized) holes are drilled into the slab, and a structural grade polymer is injected into the void. The expanding properties of the polyurethane allow for an accurate lift and leveling of the slab.
The project was a success and Bob and Iris were thrilled with the results!
