Foundation Repair in Birmingham, AL

Your Birmingham, AL, house is more than just four walls and a floor; it’s your home. It’s the place you planted your first garden and watched your children leave for kindergarten. If you’ve noticed sagging floors, sticking doors and windows, or a bowing basement wall, foundation damage could be putting your home at risk.  

As the third most populated city in Alabama, Birmingham residents are no stranger to foundation problems. Although construction errors could be to blame, the majority of foundation problems in Birmingham are a result of either the soil beneath your home or the wet weather conditions.   

Regardless of the cause, AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists has permanent solutions to put your home back on solid ground. Our customizable solutions come with a nationally backed, long-term warranty, so you can rest easy knowing AFS is the right choice for your home.

Foundation Problem Signs in Birmingham

Located in Jones Valley, flanked by the end of the Appalachian foothills, you may suspect the ground to be relatively stable in Birmingham, AL. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case.   

Homeowners in Birmingham often struggle with foundation problems and notice problem signs like cracked basement floors, bowing foundation walls, sagging floors, or a tilting chimney.   

It’s understandable to want to patch or repair these problems without getting to the root cause of the problem. After all, it’s typically an easier, cheaper fix. However, when not addressing the cause of the problem, you will soon experience the same problem again.   

Causes of Foundation Damage in Birmingham 

As an informed homeowner, it’s good to understand why your foundation may be sinking. There are typically three main reasons, shrinking soils, softening soils, and poorly compacted fill soil. All of these create a void beneath your home. When not properly supported, your extremely heavy home will settle into the empty space. This settlement is the cause of the problem signs you’ve likely noticed, like sticking doors and windows or uneven floors.   

Birmingham has expansive soils, meaning it expands and contracts easily. When the soil contracts, additional voids are created that allow your home to sink as well.  This is one of the reasons homes in the Birmingham area struggle with foundation problems more than homes in other areas.  

Foundation Repair Solutions in Birmingham

While selecting the proper company for any home improvement job is important, selecting the right one to repair your home’s foundation may be the most crucial.
