Foundation Experts in Birmingham

Located in the central part of the state, Birmingham and surrounding areas including Selma, Talladega, and Tuscaloosa, has a humid subtropical climate with abundant rain throughout the year. This can lead to high humidity in your crawl space or basement flooding.

Foundation issues including settlement and bowing walls also are common in homes throughout the area. Birmingham’s soil is mainly expansive clay, which absorbs water quickly and becomes heavy when saturated by all the area’s rain. This often results in hydrostatic pressure against your foundation walls, which oftentimes may not be noticed until it’s too late and problem signs being to show themselves throughout your house.

Birmingham’s clay soil also negatively impacts any concrete slabs or other structures on your property. Concrete areas like sidewalks and driveways crack and settle due to soil expansion and shrinkage, which is all too common in the area. Birmingham is located in Dixie Alley, a region famous for its high frequency of tornadoes. The fierce winds caused by tornadoes is one of the most disruptive forces wreaking havoc on your yard and leading to soil erosion.

If all or some of these issues sound familiar, you’re not alone. Many other homeowners just like you have experienced these problems, and we at AFS are here to help with your foundation repair, basement waterproofing, crawl space repair, and concrete lifting needs.
