Because it is located in Alabama, the soil in Hanceville is largely clay soil, an expansive soil. This means that it swells when water soaks into the ground and shrinks when the ground dries out. This can lead to foundation cracks and other issues. Problems like these are best left to the care of the professionals at Affordable Foundation and Home Repair.
Settlement and cracks in your foundation should not be left alone. If you see issues like cracks in the walls or floor, leaning or bowing walls, sloping floors, leaning chimneys, or sticking windows and doors, call Affordable Foundation and Home Repair right away. These are all signs of foundation failure. We offer several professional solutions for foundation problems in your home:
- Helical Piers – these piers are installed by screwing into the ground.
- Plate Anchors – attached to basement walls to pull shifted foundations back into place.
- Helical Tiebacks – much like helical piers installed laterally to reposition shifted foundations.

Crawlspace Repair & Mold Removal
The crawlspace of your home is important, as it supports the entire structure. If there is moisture in your crawlspace, it can lead to wood rot and metal rust, weakening the supports of your home. Crawlspace moisture can also cause mold to grow, creating health problems for you and your family.
That is why crawlspace encapsulation is important. This process involves the installation of a waterproof foil or plastic vapor barrier. The barrier is installed along the interior of the crawlspace and seals out moisture. Before you have your crawlspace encapsulated, invest in mold soda blasting to remove mold spores and prevent mold damage.
Basement Waterproofing & Other Services
Many homeowners also have to deal with water entering their basement. When water starts to leak through cracks in your foundation, or seep through the concrete of your basement walls, it causes several problems. Water in the basement can lead to mold growth, high humidity, flooded basements, water damage, and more.
