The Birmingham suburb Trussville is home to more than 20,000 residents of Alabama. Many of these people have seen the effects of a foundation problem in their homes. For these people, Affordable Foundation and Home Repair is here to help.
Have you noticed sloping floors, bowing walls, or foundation cracks in your home? If so, it could indicate shifting soil that is causing settlement or movement of your foundation. These foundation issues that your home is structurally unsound and should be repaired as soon as possible. Most often, foundation issues are caused by soil movement – the soil expands and pushes against the concrete as it soaks in water and shrinks as it dries up, pulling away from the concrete and forming gaps and voids that lead to settlement.
In order to fix these issues, you need to stabilize the foundation from underneath. Whether your foundation is heaving, sinking, or shifting, we have the right solution to lift and secure it from the ground below. For sinking foundations, we use one of our steel piering products – helical piers, to underpin and raise the foundation. If your foundation has shifted and caused bowing or leaning walls, we use plate anchors to pull it back into place. No matter what solution you need, call the team at Affordable for reliable foundation repair.
