Foundation Repair

Most often, foundation problems in Alabama homes are the result of changing moisture levels in the soil that supports the foundation. High moisture levels can cause the soil to expand, putting pressure on the concrete and resulting in foundation heaving, cracks, or shifting. Low moisture levels can cause soil to shrink, leading to a lack of proper support for the concrete – this results in sinking and settling foundations and foundation cracks.


Cracks in Brick Above Window

It is important to check regularly for signs of foundation problems in your home. Some common signs of a problem include foundation cracks, foundation settlement, bowing and leaning walls, sloping and uneven floors, wall or floor cracks, and sticking doors or windows. Our foundation repair options for these problems include helical tiebacks or wall anchors for bowing and leaning foundation walls and helical piers for sinking foundations.

Crawlspace Repair & Mold Removal
