Although Harvest, Alabama has seen more than its share of tornadoes, homeowners are more likely to experience foundation problems. Affordable Foundation and Home Repair will offer you quality foundation repair, preventing and fixing any foundation problems you may be experiencing. Our experienced professionals know the importance of secure foundation and the stable soil beneath it.
In the Harvest area, clay soil is the most prevalent type. When clay is oversaturated, it will expand, putting force on your foundation walls. Likewise, if there is a drought, the clay will shrink, causing the foundation to settle. This constant back and forth tug-of-war takes a toll on your home’s foundation. Be alert for any of the following warning signs of a compromised foundation:
- Wall cracks
- Wet, damp crawlspaces
- Bowing or leaning walls
- Sloping or uneven floors
- Sticking doors and windows
- Shifting or moving foundations
- Flaking, crumbling or chipping foundations
If you’re encountering any of these situations in your home, contact Affordable Foundation and Home Repair today, before a small problem becomes a large one. We have proudly served the Harvest area for over twenty years. Our professionals have the expertise to complete your repairs quickly and efficiently. It doesn’t matter what you need from bowed walls to chipping foundation, our experts will apply the best solution. Our products include helical piers, plate anchors, and helical tiebacks.
Crawlspace Repair & Mold Removal
Ignoring a wet crawlspace won’t make it go away. In fact, things could get worse. Termite infestations can occur, along with mold and mildew growth. Musty odors can pervade your home, causing health issues aside from being unpleasant. We can inspect your home and find the source of your wetness.
A couple of wet crawlspace solutions are sump installation and crawlspace encapsulation. The right sized sump pump will remove water to the outside. Encapsulation involves installing a vapor barrier that covers the entire area, prohibiting moisture from entering. We can also install crawlspace piers, floor supports, crawlspace waterproofing and floor joist repair, as the repair needs.
Basement Waterproofing & Other Services
It is important to contact Affordable Foundation and Home Repair if your basement or crawlspace has water issues. You want to protect your home and carpet, valuables and furniture from any water damage, mold growth or termite damage. Drying out your basement or crawlspace will also improve the air quality of your home.
