The most common cause of foundation issues is one you can't control – the soil beneath your home. Soil expansion and contraction can make your foundation move in ways it was never supposed to. However, you do get to decide who to call when you notice foundation issues around your home, such as wall and floor cracks, sticking windows and doors, or bowing walls.
All of our products are developed by Foundation Supportworks, a leading industry network of foundation dealers and structural and geotechnical engineers. Their products have been tested on thousands of homes across the country, and we trust the quality and efficacy of their work. Along with foundation repair solutions, we can also help with concrete lifting and leveling to remove cracks and uneven surfaces across your property. Ask us about PolyLevel, an award-winning alternative to traditional mudjacking techniques!
Radon gas is a colorless, odorless substance that is formed from the decay of uranium, found in soil beneath your home. It is the next leading cause of lung cancer, second only to smoking, and occurrences of radon-induced lung cancer have become more prevalent in recent years. Whether you're looking to sell your home or if you're planning on staying, having an up-to-date radon reading is the safest option. AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists can help with radon testing and mitigation if levels are found to be too high!

Cracking and shifting in a foundation could potentially cause big problems for homeowners. For Cathy D. it was a matter that needed to be addressed very quickly. While she was watching television she had seen an ad for Alabama Foundation Specialists. Cathy quickly got in touch with Regan Williams. Regan was a trained professional and knew exactly what to do. He had suggested our SmartJack system as well as our Helical Piers system.
SmartJack is a supplemental support system for the crawl space. The SmartJack effectively supports sagging beams and floor joists. The Helical Piers works with the Smart Jack while using rugged steel galvanized helical piers advanced deep into the earth’s soil to transfer the weight of your home and eventually stabilize the home over time. This prevents anymore cracking and shifting in the foundation.
There was nothing but a smile on Cathy’s face when Primary Foreman Juan Castillo finished the job!
