AKME Waterproofing Services
At AKME Waterproofing, we pride ourselves on serving our customers needs as we would serve our own family. - with honesty and integrity. What is the real source of the leak issue and therefore what is the Right solution for your problem?
Crack Injection & Pipe Penetration Sealing
Poured Concrete Foundation walls rarely need an Interior Drain Solution, which allows the water to enter and be redirected outside. It is the only foundation where you can Stop the water from intruding, via an interior applied Polyurethane Injection. This application requires a lot less labor and materials, compared to an interior drain, and therefore is much less expensive, yet the Right Solution, because it prevents the water from entering the home. The vast majority of the time it is a leaking crack or pipe penetration. This is the ideal, long term solution. We’ve done this on the Owner’s personal home, even when an interior drain was an option. And, he had custom oak bookshelves built in front of it bcause he knows he’ll never need to get back to that crack again. If we can keep the water out, there's no need for a drain to carry it away.
IF there is Hydrostatic Pressure, causing water to push up b/w the slab and the foundation wall, then an Interior Drain is the only solution. Again, this is only seen a few times a year, very unlikely that this is your leak issue. But, if this is you, then we have a permanent Interior Drain solution to address this type of problem.
Carbon Fiber Strapping
Water pressure on the outside of your cinder block/poured concrete walls can cause your foundation walls to bow and crack. Carbon fiber strapping is a cost effective, yet permanent way to stabilize your walls to prevent any further movement or damage due to water and changing soil conditions.
For the majority of all Basement and Crawl Space Foundations, an Interior Drain Solution is often the only way to address the leak issues. It permanently captures, controls and redirects the water back outside, leaving you with a dry basement or crawl space. It is the only solution if you have under-slab water or hydrostatic pressure, pushing up from below or weeping directly through the walls. Additionally, this solution represents a great form of ‘preventative insurance’ against having a possible water issue in the future, should you want to remodel or finish off your basement. We have a thorough, customized and permanent solution.
Excessive humidity. Mold. Smells. Air quality. Warping hardwoods. Dirty and Nasty. etc. These are all symptoms of a crawl space that can only be corrected through Encapsulation. The Stack Effect, is a term that means a certain % of the air from the Crawl Space will rise to the level above (and so on to upper levels). Does your HVAC unit pull directly from the air in the Crawl space? By Encapsulating your crawl space, you create a clean, bright and controlled environment that will both address and prevent the aforementioned issues. Additionally, it can create a dry, clean storage environment that also provides a value-add to your home, because it is a significant improvement.

What People are saying...
“Excellent! I hired these guys to handle our crawlspace encapsulation and they not only did a fantastic job during the project, but continue to follow-up after every major rain to ensure all is well. To boot, they came back when my Dehumidifier went south and handled the return and shipment of a new one with the manufacturer. A SOLID company that is worth your consideration.”
Bayard – Atlanta, GA
“Excellent! Steve found the problem and it is repaired. With all the rain since the repair, we have had no leak. Steve is excellent and very patient to explain the ‘why’. Very conscientious and ethical–need more guys like him! We have a pesky, leaky wall in our basement. Steve repaired the initial leak almost 2 years ago and was perplexed when we called him back for a leak in what seemed to be the same area. Through his patience, we were able to find that a very old (20+ years) repair had given way to new problems.”
Judith – Johns Creek, GA
"Couldn’t be happier. Steve and his team worked methodically to repair two significant cracks that resulted from a sewer line leak in our basement. The repairs have been in place for almost three years providing a completely sealed basement wall. His knowledge of foundations and creating and maintaining waterproof space is evident in his work.”
