Foundation in New Market, AL 35761

Customer Name:

Rob M.

Problem:

Rob called SouthernDry after finding several cracks in the brick exterior of his house. He had vertical cracks above windows, and stair-step cracks in other areas. These are telltale signs of foundation problems. The customer disclosed that he had two other foundation repair companies providing
estimates and would be comparing all three.

Solution:

Once the initial appointment was set, Calvin met with Rob to inspect the house. After a full inspection, Calvin determined that eleven AB Chance Helical Piers were needed. This would stabilize the foundation. Rob was also concerned about some areas where cracks would need to be tuck pointed and Calvin assured him that SouthernDry would match the mortar as closely as possible. The helical underpinning piers were installed under a 14 foot depth clause, with only four going beyond that – the deepest was 27 feet. The customer was very satisfied from start to finish of the project.

Quotes from the homeowner:

Entire team was very professional. They were excellent at
communicating what needed to be done. They were always on time and let you know every step
of the process. There was no high pressure sales techniques. They give you the quote and you
can start on your timeline. Just call them when you are ready. I got quotes from the more widely
advertised foundation repair companies as well and SouthernDry gives you the same product and
same warranty at a great price. They worked hard to work around the landscaping. They also did
an excellent job of cleaning up. I highly recommend them.

Bowing Basement Walls Repaired With Helical Tiebacks In Ashville, AL 35953

Customer Name

Mable F.

Problem

SouthernDry received a call from a homeowner who had a bowing wall in her basement. She had already had another basement repair company come out to fix the bowed walls, but after they installed carbon fiber strips on the walls, the problem persisted. Not only did the previous contractor fail to repair the wall, they failed to educate the customer. SouthernDry takes pride in educating homeowners, and they execute that philosophy with every appointment. Upon inspection, the diagnosis was that hydrostatic pressure was causing the wall to bow and carbon fiber was not the proper repair solution.

Solution:

SouthernDry’s inspector educated the customer on the causes of the cracks and explained the process of providing a solution. They both agreed that installing Chance helical tiebacks, along with The Force wall braces would be the best plan of permanent foundation repair for the bowing basement walls. Knowing the amount of force these walls had on them from Alabama soils and hyrdrostatic pressure, the helical tiebacks were installed to provide horizontal stability and keep the walls from bowing further inward. Next The Force bracket was installed which uses steel I-beams or C-channel and a spring coil design, to provide 1,000 pounds of constant pressure against the wall. This ultimately restores the wall to a more plumb position over time. The Force system requires little to no maintenance, providing the homeowner peace of mind knowing their foundation wall is secure. In addition, SouthernDry provided the homeowner with a lifetime warranty of the structure to ensure complete satisfaction.

Ron & Kim L.

Problem:

The homeowners called into SouthernDry because they noticed that the south wall in their basement was titled their west wall had a slight lean as well. This was a major concern for them because no homeowner wants to see instability in their foundation. They had no idea of leaning wall repair costs, but they felt the urgency to get this job done fast. They were searching for a contractor that could offer a reasonable basement leaning wall repair estimate and came across the website. Ron and Kim scheduled a free inspection with SouthernDry to find the best solution.

Solution:

SouthernDry sent a qualified professional out for an inspection of the bowed basement wall. The Inspector had vast experience in bowed basement wall repair and was a great fit for this project. He wanted to address the leaning wall and offer the best solution before things got worse. After a thorough assessment, he suggested the force basement wall bracing. The force is a revolutionary structural brace specifically created to realign the wall back within the foundation. During the structural inspection he also made the homeowners aware of the warranty they’d be receiving with this powerful device. After discussing these options with the homeowners, they agreed to move forward with SouthernDry as their contractor. The SouthernDry team took over to ensure the basement wall bracing project was smooth and successful. In the end, the homeowners could actually rest knowing that their foundation would be secure.
