Mulga, Alabama is located towards the center of Northern Alabama, in western Jefferson County. Mulga is home to over 800 people. Many of these 800 people have had to deal with structural damage from a foundation problem at some point in their lives. That is why Affordable Foundation and Home Repair provides reliable foundation repair solutions for the Mulga, AL area.
Common foundation problems in Mulga are the result of foundation settlement or shifting. This movement of the foundation is especially common in areas rich with expansive soils like clay. Clay soaks in water to expand when wet, then shrinks when it dries out, putting excess pressure on concrete and causing cracks and movement. Watch for the following signs of foundation failure in your Mulga, AL home:
- Slab cracks
- Leaning or bowing walls
- Sticking doors or windows
- Sloped or uneven floors
- Gaps and spaces
If you see these issues, call the repair team at Affordable today. We offer a variety of underpinning solutions as well as the installation of helical tiebacks or plate anchors to take care of all of your foundation repair needs.
Crawlspace Repair & Mold Removal
Because cracks in the foundation often let in water, crawlspace moisture commonly occurs alongside foundation problems. Moisture in the crawlspace may lead to other issues, including wood rot and rust, which can cause structural failure. Crawlspace moisture can also cause mold and mildew to form in the area. Fortunately, our team offers crawlspace repair and moisture protection in the forms of crawlspace piers, floor joist repair, and crawlspace encapsulation with a vapor barrier.
We also offer mold removal to take care of any mold that has formed due to your damp or wet crawlspace. Our mold removal technique involves mold soda blasting, which effectively removes mold and cleans the crawlspace to prevent reoccurrence.
Basement Waterproofing & Other Services
If you have a basement instead of a crawlspace, the chances of a moisture problem are just as high. That is why we offer several different basement waterproofing solutions to prevent moisture from seeping inside and to remove existing puddles and water problems. From wet basement prevention to flooded basement solutions, our experienced team can help. Some of the waterproofing techniques that we specialize in include:
- Surface Drainage
- Exterior Waterproofing
- Interior Waterproofing
- French Drains
- Sump Pump Systems
In addition to the services detailed above, we offer several other options for foundation and home repair. Our crews can also provide polyjacking, crack repair, concrete repair, and more for your home. Call us right away to find out which of our services can help your home in the 35118 zip code.
