Have you started seeing structural failure in your Priceville, AL home? Chances are, the bowing walls and ceiling cracks in your home are the signs of a foundation problem.
The first step in fixing foundation issues is to determine the cause. Then, our team can pick the right solution:
- Expansive Soil: As the soil under your home soaks in more water, it expands and pushes on the foundation. This can cause shifting and crack formation. We fix this with with helical tiebacks or plate anchors. Lack of water causes the soil to shrink and results in sinking foundations, sold by underpinning products.
- Poor Compaction: If the soil was not packed well enough at the time the foundation was built, it will settle over time, leading to foundation settlement. The solution for this issue is helical piers.
- Erosion: If water washes away soil under your home, it will form voids that cause the foundation to settle. This can be reversed with underpinning piers.
These solutions can fix foundation issues in your home. Call Affordable Foundation and Home Repair today to learn more.
Crawlspace Repair & Mold Removal
Another issue that homeowners often face is moisture in the crawlspace. If you have a damp or wet crawlspace, we can put in a vapor barrier to lock moisture out of the area. This process, known as encapsulation, helps to keep mold and mildew from becoming a problem in your crawlspace. Protect your family from mold-related health problems with crawlspace encapsulation.
Basement Waterproofing & Other Services
To take care of water issues outside your home, we offer exterior waterproofing and surface drainage. Surface drainage will ensure that water does not pool around your foundation and threaten to seep into your basement or ruin your foundation by soaking the concrete. Exterior drainage prevents moisture in the soil from soaking through the foundation and infiltrating your home.
For the inside of your home, we offer installation of interior waterproofing devices and sump pumps. Interior waterproofing is a method used to collect water that leaks into your home and remove it before it causes damage. This system works closely with the sump pump system, which pumps basement water out of the home and away from the foundation.
