Florence, Alabama

Affordable Foundation and Home Repair can help you with any of your foundation issues. We have served the Florence area for over 20 years and we know how temperamental the Alabama weather can be: dry summers and wet winters. The clay in this area swells and shrinks constantly between drying out and being saturated. This takes a toll on your foundation, leading to cracks and other damage.

Foundation Repair

If you are concerned about a foundation problem in your home, examine the interior and exterior for the following foundation failure symptoms:

  • Wall cracks
  • Leaning chimney
  • Foundation cracks
  • Crumbling foundation
  • Leaning or bowing walls
  • Sticking doors or windows
  • Gaps around windows or doors

If you come across any of these indications, you need to call Affordable Foundation and Home Repair. We will fix your foundation problems, using plate anchors, helical tiebacks, or helical piers that will stabilize, level and lift your foundation, returning the structural integrity back to your home.

Crawlspace Repair & Mold Removal

Although crawlspaces are the forgotten area in most homes, they play one of the most important roles in the integrity of the house. One of the biggest problems that plagues crawlspaces is excess moisture. As we learned above, too much moisture can damage your home.

One of the best solutions is crawlspace encapsulation, utilizing a vapor barrier to protect your home from moisture and humidity. This barrier will also prevent mold, bacteria and fungi from growing in a swampy environment. If there is already mold in your crawlspace, we can provide mold soda blasting to remove it and improve the air quality in your home.

Basement Waterproofing & Other Services

There are many common causes of flooded basements and crawlspaces, such as melting snow, heavy rains, plumbing leaks and poor drainage. If your home is not waterproofed, water can find its way through a crack no bigger than a hair, entering your home, damaging your furniture, attracting pests and possibly damaging the structural integrity of your house.

Keep an eye out for these signs of water intrusion:

  • Mold and mildew
  • Musty odors
  • Rusting metal appliances or fixtures
  • Standing water
  • Termite infestation
  • Water seeping through cracks
  • Wood rot

You should contact Affordable Foundation and Home Repair if you encounter any of these issues. We offer proven solutions such as sump pumps, interior waterproofing, surface draining, exterior waterproofing, and French drains. We also offer a variety of additional services for your home, including crack repair, concrete repair, and polyjacking.
