When it comes to foundation repair, we offer reliable solutions that are able to reverse foundation failure and stabilize the structure to prevent future issues. The solutions that we offer to repair issues include helical piers - devices that are installed under the concrete to lift and support the foundation from beneath - as well as plate anchors and helical tiebacks - devices which straighten and strengthen shifted and bowing foundation and basement walls.
Why does your foundation fail in the first place? Most often, foundation failure results from soil movement below your home. This movement can happen when the clay in the soil under your home expands as it soaks in more water. Movement can also occur when the clay shrinks due to dry conditions. Expanding soil pushes on your foundation and causes it to shift, heave, and crack. Shrinking soil forms voids under the concrete which cause it to settle.
This means that you need to keep an eye out for foundation problems in all sorts of conditions - dry, humid, rainy, or hot. If you see bowing walls, crack formation, sloped floors, or sticking windows and doors, call the team at Affordable Foundation and Home Repair right away.
