Jasper, Alabama is known as the “Gateway to the beautiful Sequatchie Valley” and for a good reason: the area is beautiful, with gorgeous homes dotting the landscape. Affordable Foundation and Home Repair would like to work with you to keep your home looking its best. Hot, dry summers that are followed up by cold, wet winters can wreak havoc on your home’s foundation. Clay, the most common soil in the Jasper area, is very susceptible to the changes in weather. Drought conditions can cause it to dry out, shrinking and too much rain or snow can cause the clay to swell, expanding. These changes in the soil can put pressure on your foundation, causing cracks or other damage.

- Ceiling cracks
- Chipping or crumbling foundations
- Cracks in your foundation
- Garage settling
- Leaning or bowing walls
