Leeds is a town of about 12,000 people located at the meeting point between Jefferson, St. Clair, and Shelby counties. The clay soil in Alabama is expansive, meaning that it swells when it absorbs water and shrinks when it loses water. This can cause major foundation problems for residents of the Leeds area. That is why Affordable Foundation and Home Repair provides expert repair services in this area.
If you are worried that foundation failure may be happening to your home, look for these symptoms in your home:
- Flaking or crumbling foundation
- Floor, wall, or ceiling cracks
- Sloped or uneven floors
- Gaps between floors and walls
- Sticking doors or windows
- Cracks in the foundation
- Bowing or leaning walls
These are all structural problems that arise when the foundation has shifted or sank due to soil movement underneath. Be sure to call us before the problems get any worse. We use helical piers to correct foundation settlement. These devices are installed under the concrete slab and are used to lift and stabilize the foundation and the above structure.
Crawlspace Repair & Mold Removal
If you have a crawlspace foundation, you may see a different set of issues. Because they are underground, crawlspaces often develop moisture problems. When water starts seeping through the walls or through cracks in the foundation, it can create a humid, moist atmosphere perfect for mold growth. This mold can then infect the air in your home, creating numerous health issues for you and your family.
Get rid of mold by contacting our professional mold removal team. We use mold blasting with pressurized baking soda to remove mold from the crawlspace and ensure the area is clean. We can then take measures to keep mold from growing again by encapsulating the crawlspace. This involves the installation of plastic or foil sheeting known as a vapor barrier and designed to prevent moisture entrance.
Basement Waterproofing & Other Services
The crawlspace is not the only are that we can waterproof. The Affordable crew offers a variety of waterproofing methods to keep your home dry and safe for years to come. These solutions include both interior waterproofing – floor drains, water channels, and sump pumps – to reroute basement water, and exterior waterproofing – French drains, surface drainage, waterproof foundation coating – to keep water from entering the home and wrecking the foundation.
