In Trinity, AL, one common issue that homeowners see is the settling or shifting of their foundations. This is often due to expansive clay soils under the home, which expand as they soak in water and contract as they dry up. These changes cause the concrete resting on the soil to shift and sink as well.
If you notice cracks, sloped floors, misaligned windows and doors, or other signs of a structural issue in your home, it may be time to invest in foundation repair methods from Affordable Foundation and Home Repair.
If your foundation is settling, we can use helical piers, which are installed in the soil under the foundation to lift and stabilize the concrete. For shifting foundations and bowing foundation walls, we use plate anchors or helical tiebacks to pull the foundation walls back into place.
