As a homeowner, you know you have a problem when you discover a crack in your foundation wall. For Richard & Sue F. there was a crack stretching from the top of the foundation to the bottom so they knew they had a big problem. After being referred by a close friend to speak with Alabama Foundation Specialist Jim Adams, they knew Jim was going to take care of the problem on hand. Jim, without hesitation, recommended our Wall Anchor system.
Wall Anchors are embedded into the soil away from the foundation wall then connected to steel wall plates with anchoring rods. The job of the Wall Anchors is to hold the wall in its current position. An added feature of the Anchor Wall is that it improves and straightens the wall over time.
Now Richard & Sue F. can be at ease knowing there foundation is stronger than it has ever been.
Outside on the patio is where homeowner Mike M. had a problem. His patio needed to be level, an unlevel patio could be a danger to guests and to his family. After looking through Yellowpages, Mike came across Alabama Foundation Specialists. Jim is a very skilled foundation expert and knew what would get the job done. He suggested the use of our system PolyLevel.
PolyLevel utilizes high-density polyurethane to raise slabs back to a desired level. This is done by drilling small holes in the slab using specially designed equipment to inject a structural grade polymer into the void.
Mike now has a level patio that will last many seasons and is no longer a tripping hazard to unsuspecting guests. This is all thanks to AFS!
