Here at Affordable Foundation and Home Repair, we have the experience and qualifications needed to take care of foundation issues in Grant, AL homes. We use solid foundation piering devices to fix all of the foundation problems in your home.
If your foundation has started to sink, it should be supported using foundation piers. Helical piers are like large screws inserted in the ground beneath your home. Steel push piers do the same job but do not have threads on them and are just driven into the soil under your home. Once installed, these piers support the home and can be used to reverse settlement by lifting the foundation.
For shifting foundations that are resulting in leaning basement walls, we pull the foundation back into place. This can be done with a two-part wall anchor system or a helical tieback. While tiebacks work a lot like piers that are installed horizontally through the bowing basement wall, wall anchors involve an anchor in the yard that is attached to the wall with a rod and plate.
It is also important to keep moisture out of your crawlspace, since this part of your home supports the entire foundation. This can be achieved by installing a vapor barrier. Vapor barriers are made of plastic sheeting or foil and trap moisture outside so that it cannot enter the crawlspace and cause mold growth, wood rot, or rust.
If you do see mold growth in your crawlspace, we can help. Besides our crawlspace repair and waterproofing services, we offer crawlspace mold removal with mold soda blasting. This technique uses highly pressurized blasting of baking soda to clean mold off of crawlspace surfaces.
Many foundation problems are caused by water building up around your foundation and wearing away the concrete. Water can also cause foundation cracks, as it increases the soil pressure and pushes on the concrete.
We offer the following waterproofing solutions for your home:
All of these solutions work together to keep your Grant, Alabama home free of water and mold or mildew. In addition to waterproofing, crawlspace repair, foundation repair, and mold removal, our team offers other services to keep your home healthy.
