Trafford, Alabama

Trafford, AL is a town of around 650 people located in central-northern Alabama. Even though Trafford is a small town, the residents often experience major foundation issues. This is due to the prevalence of expansive clay soils in the area. These soils expand when they are wet and shrink and compact when they are dry. As the soil shifts, the structures built on it may settle and shift as well. Fortunately, Affordable Foundation and Home Repair is able to solve foundation problems in Trafford, Alabama.

Foundation Repair

It is important to check your home regularly for signs of foundation failure. If you see any of the following issues in your home, call our expert foundation repair team as soon as possible:

  • Foundation and slab cracks
  • Sloped or uneven floors
  • Gaps and spaces
  • Wall or ceiling cracks
  • Leaning or bowing walls


Stair Step Brick Cracks

These are all signs of an underlying foundation issue in your home. We offer several different foundation repair solutions to combat these issues. Our solutions include underpinning, which is a process by which helical piers are installed beneath the sinking foundation and used to lift and stabilize the structure. We also offer helical tiebacks and plate anchors, which are used to pull foundation walls back into position when they start to bow or lean.

Crawlspace Repair & Mold Removal

Crawlspace issues are common in Trafford for the same reason that foundation problems occur. However, when cracks and settlement occur in the crawlspace of your home, it can also lead to a moisture problem, as water is allowed to seep in. That is why we not only provide crawlspace piers and floor joist repair for structural problems in the crawlspace, but also crawlspace encapsulation for moisture protection.

Our team even specializes in mold removal using mold soda blasting. This pressurized blasting of baking soda helps to completely clean mold from the crawlspace in order to ensure that it does not come back.
