Have you noticed your Madison County, AL home developing issues such as sloped floors or wall cracks? These problems could be the result of a foundation issue. Due to the clay soil that is prevalent in the area, it is not uncommon for foundations to shift and move, causing problems such as these.
If you do notice that your floor, walls, or ceiling is starting to crack, or that you have bowing or leaning walls, call Affordable Foundation and Home Repair right away. We have high-quality foundation repair products that you need to take care of these problems in your Madison County home.
Sinking and settling foundations are often caused by the clay soil drying out and shrinking. This forms voids and spaces that the foundation settles into. If your foundation sinks, we can install helical piers or steel push piers to stabilize and lift it.
Foundation cracks or shifting, on the other hand, might be caused by the clay soil expanding as it soaks in more moisture. As the soil expands, it pushes on the foundation and causes heaving and cracks. We resolve this issue by pulling using helical tiebacks and plate anchors to pull the foundation back into place.
The crawlspace is another important part of your home that you may not pay as much attention to as the foundation. There are, however, symptoms that indicate you need crawlspace repair or waterproofing:
If you see these signs, it could be a sign of moisture or mold in your crawlspace. We take care of these problems with our many crawlspace repair services. These services include: mold soda blasting, floor joist repair, crawlspace encapsulation (vapor barrier), and crawlspace supports.
