Gadsden is a city located on the Coosa River in Alabama. Local residents experience hot summers followed by cold, wet winters. What many residents aren’t aware of is how these inconsistent weather conditions affect their homes and businesses. Stable soil is necessary to keep the home’s structure intact. Expansive soils like clay are the most destructive because they shrink and swell, according to the temperature and moisture content. As a result, the structure may move or shift.
Settling foundations can be accompanied by other foundation issues, such as:
- Foundation cracks
- Tilted or leaning chimneys
- Leaning, rotating or bowing walls
- Ceiling cracks
- Wall cracks
- Crumbling, flaking or chipping foundations
If you notice any of these signs, call the experts at Affordable Foundation. Our years of experience will allow us to conduct the necessary repairs to restore your home back to normal. We use reliable foundation repair products such as helical piers, helical tiebacks and plate anchors. All of our products will stabilize and support settling foundations without causing disruption to the work area.
Crawlspace Repair & Mold Removal
Crawlspace moisture is one of the main causes of crawlspace issues, including that musty odor. As the water evaporates it rises, affecting the insulation, floors and home’s structure.
