Located in central Alabama, Jefferson County is home to some of the major cities in the state. Unfortunately, it is also home to some major foundation problems. Because of the expansive soil and relatively varied weather in Alabama, it is not uncommon to see foundation failure in Jefferson County homes and businesses.
The clay-rich soil in Jefferson County expands when it is wet and shrinks as it dries out. This means that any concrete foundations resting on the soil shift as the soil settles and shifts. This foundation movement can cause some of the following issues in your home:
If you notice these symptoms, you should invest in one of our top-notch foundation repair products. We use products like helical piers to underpin and support sinking foundations and plate anchors and helical tiebacks to pull shifting foundations back into position. Call us and we will determine which high-quality steel device is the best solution for you.
While the foundation is an important area of your home, there is another vital area - the crawlspace. Because they are below ground level, crawlspaces are prone to such issues as moisture buildup, mold growth, and weakening supports. These issues can make your home less stable and can lower the air quality throughout the structure.
Fortunately, we offer a solution for each of these problems. For crawlspace supports that have started to sag, we offer floor joist repair, floor supports, and crawlspace pier installation. If you suffer from a damp crawlspace, we can encapsulate the area with a vapor barrier and install a sump pump to remove water. We even offer mold soda blasting to get rid of mold and mildew and keep the air in your home clean.
Just like a damp crawlspace, a damp or wet basement causes several issues in your home. If you notice musty odors, puddles, damp walls, or soft spots in your basement, call us for a solution today. We offer the following repairs for wet basements:
In addition to waterproofing, we provide services such as radon mitigation and testing, concrete repair, and crack repair - all services that keep your home safe, stabilized, and moisture/pest free.
