For many of us, our home is the largest, most important investment we will make. Foundation problems can threaten that investment by causing serious structural damage that reduces a home's value in the Bay Area.
Most foundation problems in California are caused by soil-related issues such as: poor compaction, overloading, excessive organic materials, erosion or expansive soils that expand and shrink with changes in the moisture content of the soil. These conditions can produce stresses that damage a home's foundation and the rest of the structure as well. Underpinning your home with quality foundation repair products will insure the integrity of your foundation, whether it is a crawl space, slab on grade or a basement made of poured concrete or block.
The foundation is the most important part of a home. It provides a firm footing for the structure to sit upon, and it distributes the weight evenly onto the soil. There are multiple signs of foundation problems which a homeowner needs to watch out for - sticking doors and windows, small wall cracks, or bowing and leaning walls. These little signs are actually a sign of foundation deterioration. Foundation repair is not a do it yourself project. The foundation is too important to the integrity of your home; any problems with it should be handled by professionals.
Foundation problems might be the cause of your home settling. A settling home means that it is sinking into the soil beneath it.

Helical and steel piers are some of the products we will use to prevent your home from settling. Helical piers are screwed deep into the ground and are pinned under the foundation of your home, securing and lifting it to its original position.
