Muscle Shoals has homes as beautiful and eclectic as the music the area is famous for. The homeowners here are aware of the change in the weather that happens: dry, hot summers and wet, cold winters. The clay soil in the area shifts greatly over the year, shrinking and expanding with the changing water conditions. During dry spells, the soil contracts, causing cracks to appear and settling to occur. If it rains a lot, the soil soaks in the water, expanding and putting pressure on your walls and foundation. If you've noticed cracks in your foundation, call the experts at Affordable Foundation and Home Repair to come and inspect your property. We'll assess the situation and use our 20 plus years of experience to work with you on the best solution.

Maybe you don't have a basement; don't worry, we still have your crawlspace covered. We can repair any damage your crawlspace has, including encapsulation, waterproofing, piers or floor supports. You want to make sure you tame any mold or mildew growth, before it can sicken your family.
Excess moisture in your Muscle Shoals crawlspace can be due to several causes, such as soil erosion, poor soil compaction, hydrostatic pressure or leaky pipes. Any of these situations can cause the soil to shift, allowing your foundation to settle or crack.
Here are some common indications of too much moisture in your crawlspace:
By installing a sump pump and vapor barrier, we can control the moisture and humidity in your crawlspace. By doing this, you can reduce bacteria, allergens and mold and increase the air quality in your home.
If you discover your situation is a settling foundation, then we can lift and stabilize your crawlspace back to its original height. We'll use crawlspace piers, floor joists or floor supports, whatever the situation calls for.
