After being in the foundation repair trades for six years, I decided to explore new horizons and passed the test and received my California State General Contracting license in 2004. After a couple of years researching to find a good foundation repair product manufacturer to work with, I started Bay Area Underpinning in 2006. My goal was to provide a cost-effective, engineered solution to foundation settlement problems with an emphasis on educating the client and making the customer feel comfortable with the unfamiliar methods of foundation repair, something that didn’t seem to exist with the current local companies in the trade.
In 2008 we brought in Earth Contact Products for all our steel underpinning systems, and a great partnership ensued. With this partnership accompanied with our in house engineering, we were able to offer the very best underpinning products in the industry today, engineered and designed to perform at the highest level. In addition to our association with Earth Contact Products, we have other associations with industry-leading companies that help us provide the best service possible.
Today we cover a large service area from San Jose to Sacramento and everywhere in between. You may have seen our trucks or our estimators’ and engineers’ Mini Coopers on the highway. We are proud to employ over 75 people and continue to grow thanks to our quality and customer service as seen throughout many review sites online.
