If you live in Chilton County, Alabama, there is a good chance that you have or will have to deal with a foundation issue at some point in your life. The clay soils present in Alabama often cause foundation shifting, since they expand when they absorb water and shrink when they lose water. Affordable Foundation and Home Repair can take care of all sorts of foundation issues in your Calhoun County, AL home.
The most common foundation issues result from foundation shifting and settling. When your foundation settles, it can lead to structural instability throughout your home, and you may notice sloped floors, bowing or leaning walls, and gaps between the floors and the walls or ceiling. Shifting or heaving foundations can lead to wall or floor cracks as well as sticking doors or windows. If you notice these issues in your home, call a repair expert from Affordable right away - the longer you leave the problem unattended, the worse it will become.
To fix settling or sinking foundations, we install foundation piers. These steel piers are driven or screwed into the ground under your foundation and anchored into solid soils. They then are used for support while the foundation back to appropriate level hydraulically. In some cases, we use polyjacking, the injection of an expansive polyurethane foam under your slab to raise foundations. We also offer the installation of helical tiebacks and wall plate anchors, used to straighten bowing foundation walls and close cracks.
