Homes in the Albertville, Alabama area may develop foundation problems like settlement or shifting. These issues in turn can cause water entry in your home, which can weaken the structure and lead to mold growth. Issues such as these in your home should be examined and repaired by the professional team at Affordable Foundation and Home Repair as soon as possible.
These issues are caused by soil movement below the concrete. By using our professional foundation repair solutions and products, we can solve the following foundation issues in your home.
Settlement: Caused by erosion, soil shrinkage, or poor soil compaction. The solution for this issue is to install piers that will underpin and raise the foundation from below, such as helical piers.
Shifting: Shifted foundations are the result of soil pressure from excess moisture or temperature changes. This problem is fixed by installing helical tiebacks or wall anchors to pull the basement wall back into position.
Crack Formation: If there are cracks in your foundation, they may be the result of shifting or heaving from moisture or temperature fluctuations. The solution is to install tiebacks, anchors, or piers to support and stabilize the foundation.
These solutions can help repair any foundation problems in your Albertville, AL home.
Crawlspace Repair & Mold Removal
Crawlspace repair services often involve installing a vapor barrier to keep moisture out of the home. This vapor barrier is installed inside the crawlspace and covers the crawlspace walls. This barrier prevents the following issues:
- Wood rot and rust
- Musty odors
- Elevated humidity levels
- Mold or mildew growth
- Damp or wet walls
If you see these signs in your crawlspace, invest in crawlspace encapsulation with a vapor barrier as soon as possible. For mold removal in your crawlspace, we offer mold soda blasting, which utilizes a high-pressure baking soda blasting technique to clean mold out of your crawlspace.
Basement Waterproofing & Other Services
If it is basement waterproofing that you need, we also offer several different waterproofing methods. These solutions keep water from leaking through cracks into your Albertville, Alabama basement or damaging the concrete foundation.
The first solution is to install surface drainage and exterior waterproofing. These systems reduce the amount of water near your home both on the surface of the ground and underneath. Next, interior drainage can be used to catch and collect water that does leak into your basement. This water is then expelled from your home through the sump pump.
Other services that we offer include radon testing and mitigation, home remodeling and repair, and concrete or crack repair for your Albertville, Alabama home. Call Affordable Foundation and Home Repair right away to keep your home safe and secure.
