Durable Foundation Repair to Support Your Home

How to identify issues with your home's foundation

crack in brickFoundation problems come in all shapes and sizes and can affect homes and businesses of any age. The key to a lasting repair is to identify the source of the problem. Here are the most common reasons you may be experiencing foundation problems.

  • Poor soil conditions caused by expansive clay soils and seasonal weather changes
  • Interior and/or exterior drainage issues resulting in standing water near or underneath your home
  • Hydrostatic pressure damaging your basement walls over time
  • Trees and tree roots near your foundation
  • Hidden leaks underneath your home
  • Intrusive water leading to increased humidity and moisture underneath your home

These factors can cause a home built on a slab, basement or crawl space foundation to shift, settle or crack.

 

Do you think your property could be experiencing foundation problems? Keep an eye out for these red flags.

The first step in determining whether you have a problem with your home’s foundation is to look for these key warning signs.

  • Stair-step cracks in interior and exterior walls or near windows
  • Uneven floors
  • Sagging floors
  • Doors or windows that stick and become difficult to open
  • Basement walls that bow inward
  • Basement walls that leak
  • Moisture in the basement
  • Moisture or pooling water in your crawl space
  • Mold in your basement or crawl space
  • High levels of humidity inside your home
  • Musty smells from the crawl space

If you notice any of these issues in your home,  it’s important to act fast, as foundation problems only get worse over time. The good news is, by catching and addressing emerging foundation problems early, you may be able to avoid expensive structural repair altogether. With the help of our dedicated Project Planners, many of our worried customers are able to easily solve minor water-related issues before serious foundation damage occurs.

Very professional and responsive to our basement waterproofing project. SD’s pricing was much better than a well known... Alabama foundation and waterproofing company and the products were comparable. SD also provided a 5 year longer warranty on the sump pump system. Install crew were always on-time and eager to answer any questions. I asked for a change in the sump pump location before the install began and they had no issues with the last minute request. I highly recommend this company for your waterproofing needs.read more

We discovered some cracks in our brick and mortar on the exterior back of our house. Southern Dry performed a thorough... inspection and provided options that some of the other companies that we had perform an estimation had not considered. They inspected the crawl space to determine if the cracks extended to the footer. This was the only company to perform this inspection for us thanks to Brian. I felt like Southern Dry was honest and did not push me to perform something that was unnecessary. Southern Dry provided an estimate that was comparable to others I received, but with the added thoroughness, which gave us peace of mind. Southern Dry called me with their install date and worked with me to make sure the install was done without damaging my yard and bushes as much as possible. The gentlemen that performed the installation welcomed questions and provided good feedback, they were diligent and cleaned up after they installed the helical piers for our house. After the installation, I received a follow-up to ensure our satisfaction. Overall I have a great impression of Southern Dry for these types of services.read more

I am extremely pleased with my decision to have Southern Dry help me with my crawl space. The inspector was very... knowledgeable, and very thorough. He spent the time to make sure I knew exactly what was going on under my home, and how he proposed to fix it! The finance team worked hard to get me approved at the lowest rate possible, and I am impressed with how affordable the payments are. The crew that came in to do the work were very professional. Everyone I spoke with had complete knowledge of the process, and my specific job. Aside from the pristine crawl space, I cant even tell they were here. The office is always a call, text, or email away. They are very responsive. It seems rare these days to find a company you can trust to perform quality repair to your home. Southern Dry Foundation Repair has earned my trust, and my future business! I really do feel like a part of the southern dry family!read more

I honestly cannot say enough great stuff about this company. They were very patient with me when I needed to hold off... on work being done because I needed surgery. They stayed in communication with me to make sure I knew I was a priority when I was ready to start the job. Both Matt and Pablo were great to work with. J.D. and his crew were on time, did the job in a timely manner, and my garage was left cleaner than when they started. I had some concerns about a few things and I never felt pressured to write a check until all those concerns were met. They took my concerns seriously, explained the process of the system, fixed a few details, and now my basement is completely dry after rain!! My husband and I were very impressed that the owner, John, came to look at our basement to make sure everything was in great working order afterwards. Because they did such a wonderful job with our home we choose to use them again with a footing issue we were having with our business building. Calvin (who did our estimate before) came right out and put my mind at ease about what they could do that would make our building safe again. When you run into problems like the ones we were having it is a breathe of fresh air to have a company work so hard to give you a feeling of security back. I will continue to use Southern Dry in the future and would recommend them to anyone that would need these services.read more

Very professional company and the work performed was first rate. I would highly recommend this company and I highly... recommend having your crawl space properly sealed and a dehumidifier installed. I had check pricing from several different companies in my area that do this kind of work and they were the most reasonable. I live in Alexandria AL which is in the deep South with very humid weather. I had some serious moisture damage this fall with mold forming from a clogged HVAC unit under my house. Water was puddling onto the plastic under my house, I was not aware of this and it had been going on for several months. By the time I discovered it the damage had already been done to my house flooring. Thank goodness the homeowners insurance covered the floor repair to the tune of $30,000. I wanted to make sure this would never be an issue again even if I had some kind of water leak. They completely clean out all the old plastic, vacuumed the under side of the flooring and removed any construction trash from under the house and then properly sealed my crawl space. My dehumidifier has an app that I can check anywhere in the world and see my temp and humidity levels under my house. There is also a water sensor installed so if water is detected, it will send me a message.I could not be happier and it was worth every penny!read more

Southern Dry was very easy to work with during the encapsulation process. Luckily I did not have foundation damage but... my house needed french drains, sump pump, dehumidifier and the crawl space encapsulated. The job was completed as promised and I am very satisfied with the end product. The entire crew was professional and efficient. I recommend Southern Dry.read more

Everyone I spoke with from Southern Dry was top notch. I prefer doing business with people who are average, regular,... down-home folks trying to make an honest living. If you're like me and want someone straight up to give you a reasonable quote on your repairs, call Calvin. They were fast, gave me a date to begin, started that morning early and did a fantastic job. Juan was the foreman on my project and if I had a question he had an answer for me. He was extremely nice and knowledgeable about what was being fixed and done. I was never left in the dark about anything. I had some pretty major foundation issues on one side of my newest house. The back sill plate was rotten and the floor was sagging from no support in the rear. Juan and the crew installed 6 piers, replaced the sill plate, cleaned the crawlspace completely, installed 5 jack supports, encapsulated it all and installed a dehumidifier and battery back up, and made me a 2 new doors in 3 days! So Calvin, Russ, John, Juan, and the other crew, thank you for a job well done. The house looks a million times better! I really appreciate it!read more

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.read more

Forgive me for the long review, but great service is hard to find these days. When it’s found, it should be celebrated.... John and his crew were incredible from day 1. Water was pooling in our crawl space on a new construction and we were eager to have it resolved quickly to avoid the formation of mold and spores and potential health hazards for our family. John came out immediately and assessed the situation, explained all the issues, and developed a plan. We had a guaranteed price in our hands within minutes; fair middle road pricing for extremely high quality work. Many estimates came in 2x higher, just fyi. There was plenty of trash and construction debris left under the house from the contractors; SouthernDry crew removed every piece of debris and leveled out the ground before installing the drains and pumps and encapsulation material. John and his crew returned a week later because they wanted to make a modification to the system that they believed would be more efficient. I would have never known the difference, but because they care about the quality of their work, they made the modifications to ensure the efficiency and longevity of the system. After a month, I finally made it back to the far corner under the house and noticed water pooling under the encapsulation in one area. One phone call and 24 hours later, the crew showed up, assessed the situation and implemented the necessary modifications, installing additional drainage at no additional cost to me. Using SouthernDry was the easiest and best decision we made!read more

I have had the total encapsulation for one week now, I am proud to say my relative humidity in my house now stays... around 38-40%, I have actually had to raise my thermostat due to it feeling so much cooler and comfortable in my house with the lower humidity levels. I called around and compared prices and Southern Dry was by far the least expensive and the personable and easy to work with. And my crawlspace is dry as a bone. If you have moisture problems or high humidity in your home I would definitely recommend giving John Kabel with Southern Dry a callread more
