If your home or commercial building has bowing basement walls, you may have foundation failure. Foundation problems can be caused by unstable soil conditions such as poor site preparation, dry soil, soil erosion or inconsistent moisture levels. All of these factors have a major impact on your foundation. Too much water in the soil could cause swelling and create pressure against the foundation walls. This causes bowing and leaning basement walls. You may even notice cracks forming throughout the structure. Cracks allow water to enter your basement, causing water damage to your personal belongings as well as the home's structure. At Affordable Foundation, we offer foundation repair solutions to fix settling foundations in the Huntsville or Birmingham, Alabama and southern Tennessee areas. We won't let cracks destroy your home.
To straighten bowing or leaning walls, we use helical tiebacks. They are long, steel poles that contain screws that can be withdrawn and reused. Helical tiebacks are screwed into the soil, the screw anchor becomes a bearing device which helps stabilize and support bowing or leaning walls. They also prevent future cracks by adding extra support to the walls.
We can apply helical tiebacks to new construction projects or existing homes. We proudly serve the cities of northern Alabama and southern Tennessee. We provide free estimates for all of our customers. Contact us today so we can support and strengthen your walls.
