Fultondale, Alabama

Fultondale, AL, a northern suburb of Birmingham, is located in the northern half of Alabama and is home to over 8,000 people. Due to the excess of clay in the soil in this and other parts of the state, foundation problems are not uncommon. Residents of Fultondale can count on Affordable Foundation & Home Repair to take care of all of their foundation issues.

Foundation Repair

The expansive nature of the clay soil means that it swells and shrinks as the moisture levels in the ground fluctuate. This movement can cause the foundation of your home to become unstable. If this happens, the foundation may start to sink, shift, or crack. These are all foundation problems that can lead to major structural damage. If you see the following symptoms in you home, talk to a foundation repair contractor from Affordable right away:

  • Cracks in the walls, floor, or ceiling
  • Sloping and uneven floors
  • Foundation flaking, crumbling or chipping
  • Sticking windows and doors
  • Wet, humid, or damp crawlspaces
  • Bowing, leaning, or bulging walls

These issues should be repaired with one of our foundation piering solutions right away. We use helical piers and other high-quality steel products to stabilize and raise your foundation from the soil below. Call today to learn more.

Crawlspace Repair & Mold Removal

Foundation cracks can lead to more problems than just structural instability. One additional issue that may result from foundation cracks is water seeping into your crawlspace. This can cause mold growth and high humidity, which are hazards to your family’s health and to the stability of your home’s support structure in the crawlspace.

We provide professional mold blasting to remediate mold and mildew in your crawlspace. We also offer floor joist repair and crawlspace supports to correct any water damage to the beams and posts in your crawlspace. Once the crawlspace is mold-free and structurally sound, we provide encapsulation with a vapor barrier to keep out water and lower humidity levels.
