Shelby County, Alabama

Many homeowners in the Shelby County, AL area have experienced some kind of foundation or water damage at some point in their lives. The expansive soil in Alabama is prone to expanding and shrinking, which can cause a variety of different foundation problems. That is why Affordable Foundation and Home Repair offers professional solutions for foundation problems, water problems, concrete sinking, mold growth, and more.

Foundation Repair

Common foundation problems in Shelby County include foundation settlement, foundation cracks, and shifting foundation walls. These problems can occur when the expansive soil under the home contains excessive water and swells, pushing on the concrete. They can also occur when the soil dries out and shrinks, leaving the foundation without the necessary support. To determine whether these problems are occurring in your home, look for the following signs of foundation failure:

  • Foundation cracks
  • Bowing or leaning walls
  • Cracks in wall, floor, or ceiling
  • Sticking doors or windows
  • Sloping or uneven floors

We can repair these foundation issues with one of our high-quality solutions. If your home is suffering from settling foundations, we will install helical piers to lift and stabilize it. If your foundation has bowing or bulging foundation walls, we can pull the walls back into place using wall anchors or helical tiebacks. Call us to learn more about these foundation repair options.

Check for the following signs of a water problem in your basement:

  • Musty odors

  • High humidity
  • Condensation on pipes
