Mount Olive, Alabama

Mount Olive is a small town of about 4,000 people in Jefferson County, Alabama. If you live in or near Mount Olive, you may have dealt with foundation problems – cracks, settlement, water leakage – due to the expanding and contracting of the clay-rich soils. If so, contact the professional foundation repair and waterproofing crew at Affordable Foundation and Home Repair.

Foundation Repair

We offer several different foundation repair methods so that we can choose the right one for your home. Some of the solutions that our team provides for foundation repair include:

  • Helical Piers – Screwed into the ground below the foundation to offer maximum support for settling homes.
  • Helical Tiebacks – Screwed laterally into the ground to pull bowing foundation walls back into place.
  • Plate Anchors – Installed in the yard and attached to foundation walls to straighten shifted foundations.

These solutions can help correct foundation problems caused by shifting soil and varying moisture conditions in your home. Look for signs of foundation failure – sinking or settling, bowing or leaning walls, gaps and spaces, sloped or uneven floors, cracks, sticking doors, and windows, etc. – and call us if you see any.

Crawlspace Repair & Mold Removal

Our team also offers crawlspace repair to ensure that all areas of your home are free of damage and are structurally sound. If you have sloped floors or have noticed leaning and bowing in your crawlspace beams and posts, we have a few repair options that can help. Our crawlspace piers and floor supports can give your home and crawlspace the stabilization that it needs.

We also take care of crawlspace moisture. One common issue in the crawlspace is mold growth. If you notice mold in your crawlspace, we can provide our mold soda blasting to clean the area and get rid of harmful mold spores. We can then use crawlspace encapsulation with a plastic or foil vapor barrier to prevent water from coming back and causing more issues.
