Tackling Wet Basements, Cracked Foundations, and Mold since 1958

Every part of your home plays a part in contributing to your safety and quality of living. That also includes your less-frequently visited spaces such as your basements, your crawlspaces, and your home’s crucial foundation. Over the course of time, hydrostatic pressure from rain-soaked soil can lead inexorably to damage to your foundation, your basement walls, and to your crawlspaces. With the help of ’58 Foundations, the people of Knoxville and East Tennessee no longer have to worry. From foundation repair and crawlspace encapsulation to sump pump repair and mold removal, we have the experts to make sure that your home remains a safe and stable place to be, and healthy for you and your loved ones. We’ve been helping the Knoxville community and the East Tennessee region for over 60 years—you’ll have both our quality products and our highly experienced specialists on your side to keep your home standing well into the future.

From repairing foundations to ridding your home of dangerous molds, we take great pride in the quality of our work. But we are also the experts when it comes to providing an amazing customer experience. Getting anything in your home repaired can be a stressful time, filled with uncertainty and anxiety. We want our valued customers to be as confident about our work as we are—that is why we offer a free inspection before any job, and a zero-obligation price quote.

’58 Foundations is proud to be serving the communities of East Tennessee, from Knoxville and Athens to Maryville and Seymour. But our commitment to our customers goes beyond just fixing their foundations, waterproofing their basements, and encapsulating crawlspaces. We’re also dedicated to the communities as a whole! As members of the Knoxville Chamber, the Sevierville Chamber of Commerce, and the Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce, we have the privilege of helping these communities pursue greater commercial growth, building an economic foundation for all their citizens to find better employment opportunities.

From Knoxville to Kingsport, East Tennessee is brimming with both fun things to do as well as natural beauty out in the wetlands and trails. But whether its flash floods caused by tropical storm leftovers or the 40+ inches of rain that happen each year, we’re all familiar with the rising flood risks that are developing each year. The Ijams Nature Center suffered major damage just in 2019 as multiple tropical systems strike at East Tennessee every year—meanwhile, homes are experiencing basement floods, crawlspaces are pooling with water and moisture. Even the foundations of the Knoxville Museum of Art or the Sunsphere tower could be made vulnerable by repeated heavy rains. Fortunately, ’58 Foundations has the expertise to help with all your foundation repair, basement waterproofing, sump pump installation, and much more. As our Smokies weather continues to change, you can always call on our local dealership to keep your homes and buildings standing tall and dry.

’58 Foundations is dedicated to helping all in East Tennessee in keeping your foundations solid, and your basements and crawlspaces safe and dry. Our local dealership can reach you wherever you may be, whether you live in Knoxville, Clinton, Bristol, or Oak Ridge. Give us a call today to schedule a free inspection and estimate, and rest easy knowing that we’ll get it fixed or it’s your money back!

Basement Waterproofing

Basements make for fantastic storage as well as extra living spaces. But it can all go awry when a basement floods after an awful rainstorm. From soil settlement to hydrostatic pressure, nature has a way of eventually finding its way in—unless something is done about it. ’58 Foundations has the experts and the products to provide quality basement waterproofing and sump pump installation, so that water can be kept at bay and away from your home.

’58 Foundations has been proudly serving communities such as Knoxville, Johnson City, Oak Ridge, and more! As weather patterns continue to change, we’ll be there to help ensure that your basement stays dry and usable. Take a look at our areas of expertise and give us a call to keep your basement safe!

Crawlspace Repair

Even for homes without a basement, there’s a chance that there exists a crawlspace. From providing a buffer zone between your home and the soil’s moisture to being used as a secondary storage space, your crawlspace could become unusable from flooding and a health hazard when too much moisture is left to linger. From wood rot to mold growth, these are just a couple ways that a crawlspace can be affected when water and moisture is left to work its way into the wooden supports.

Along with keeping your crawlspace dry and intact, keeping moisture out will also make the rest of your home a healthier place to be. Whether you live in Kingsport, Morristown, Cleveland, or Knoxville, ’58 Foundations is your local expert in all things crawlspaces. Have a look at our areas of expertise to see how we can help make your crawlspace viable again—we can help with crawlspace encapsulation, crawlspace waterproofing, and more!

Foundation Repair

Every foundation begins strong, supporting the buildings and structures which sit upon them. But our Smokies weather can bring a fair amount of rain each year, water that can begin to weigh against and wear down those foundations. Then the cracks appear, a wall begins to bow, or maybe a floor starts to sink as soil starts to settle. What these all have in common is that your home could be in danger of further structural damage, and your safety could even be jeopardized unless something is done to fix that foundation.

Since 1958, ’58 Foundations has been helping save the foundations of countless homes and businesses throughout the East Tennessee area. From Knoxville and Johnson City to Maryville and Kingsport, our local dealership stands ready to provide foundation repair, foundation stabilization, and more. Have a look at our areas of expertise and see how we can keep your foundation holding strong for years to come!

Our Areas of Expertise

Foundation Repair

Foundation Cracks

Bowing Walls

Structural Issues

Products: Helical piers, push piers, carbon fiber wall reinforcement, wall tiebacks, I-beams, floor stabilizer jacks, floor crack stitching, crack sealer injection

Mold Repair

Changing weather is leading to more rain, especially from tropical storms leftover by hurricanes making landfall. Whether it’s the rain-soaked soil beneath your crawlspace, or the aftermath from a leaking or flooded basement, all that moisture can turn your space into a giant welcome mat for mold. This can lead to potential health problems for you and your loved ones if mold has the chance to linger and spread.

For over 60 years, ’58 Foundations has been fighting against the spread of mold in our homes and buildings. Our mold removal experts are equipped with quality products and decades of knowledge to ensure that your mold problem is removed rather than simply remediated. Have a look at our areas of expertise to see how our mold removal services can help you!
