It is not unusual for home and business owners in Talladega County, AL to experience structural failure related to a foundation problem. This is largely due to the clay soils in the area. These clay soils are expansive – they expand when they absorb water and shrink when they lose water. This ground movement can cause Talladega County foundations to shift, settle, heave, and crack.
Foundation settlement and shifting usually causes structural problems in your home, such as foundation cracks, bowing or leaning walls, sloped floors, wall cracks, sticking windows or doors, or cracks in the floor or ceiling. If you notice any of these issues, do not hesitate to call the foundation repair experts at Affordable Foundation and Home Repair. We offer the following solutions to fix foundation failure:
- Helical Piers
- Helical Tiebacks
- Wall Plate Anchors
Helical piers are underpinning devices that are used to lift and support sinking foundations. Helical tiebacks and plate anchors are anchoring devices that are used to straighten bowing or leaning basement walls caused by shifting foundations. Call us today to learn more.
