Residents of South Pittsburg, TN should be aware of the dangers of foundation failure in order to protect their homes from serious damage. Many homeowners in Tennessee have experienced foundation issues due to the wet, cold winters and dry, hot summers. Constant changes in weather means constant changes in soil. When the soil under your home expands and contracts due to moisture levels, it can cause disruption to your foundation. Your foundation can form cracks and voids because of dry soil, and it can shift and heave due to excess moisture in the soil.
If you have noticed foundation cracks or foundation shifting, you may likely be experiencing these problems as well:

Do you have a wet basement in your South Pittsburg home? If so, don't struggle cleaning up after rainstorms any longer. Here at Affordable Foundation, we offer you professional waterproofing services to keep your home safe and dry, no matter what kind of weather is outside. It only takes a little bit of water to do a whole lot of damage. When water is present in your home, it can destroy your walls and floors, as well as damage your furniture and appliances. Where moisture is present, mold and mildew will grow, which can be damaging to the health of you and your family. By having one of our waterproofing systems installed, you can be protected from these unfortunate situations.
Our company offers several options for waterproofing, including: interior waterproofing, exterior waterproofing, sump pumps/pits, surface drainage, and French drains. These systems work together to prevent water from pooling around your foundation and seeping into your basement or crawlspace.
