The city of Morris, Alabama, located north of Birmingham, is home to around nearly 2,000 people. Those who live in this area often have to deal with foundation problems arising from the expansive nature of the clay soil. This expansive nature causes the soil to expand and push on foundations when it is wet and to shrink, forming voids and causing settlement when it is dry.
When the foundation of your home starts to shift or settle, it can cause cracks to form and may result in collapse or structural failure. The longer foundation problems are left without repair, the worse they will become. As the problems worsen, they require more invasive and expensive repairs. Look for the following signs of a foundation problem in your Morris, AL home:
- Bowing or leaning basement walls
- Sloped or uneven floors
- Water leakage or seepage
- Wall, floor, or ceiling cracks
Affordable Foundation and Home Repair provides several methods of foundation repair that can repair and stabilize your sinking and settling foundation. Our team can install foundation piers to lift the concrete or helical tiebacks or wall anchors to pull shifted foundation walls back into place. Call now for a free estimate.
