When it comes to your home’s foundation, there are a lot of issues that can arise from the expansive nature of Alabama’s clay soil and varying levels of precipitation. Higher moisture levels result in soil swelling, hydrostatic pressure, and erosion. These can cause the soil around your foundation to shift, push on the concrete, or wash away. This soil movement then causes foundation cracks, settlement, and shifting.
The solution to these problems is to use high-quality underpinning solutions like those offered by our professional repair team at Affordable Foundation and Home Repair. For sinking foundations, we use helical to raise and support the concrete from below. For shifting foundations, we use helical tiebacks or plate anchors to pull the foundation walls back into place and close cracks. Contact us now for foundation repair solutions if you see cracks, settlement, leaning walls, or other signs of foundation failure.
