Foundation Leveling in California

Unstable soil around the foundation of your home can cause foundation problems. If you see sloping floors, have sticking doors and windows, or cracks in the basement or slab, there is a good chance that the soil around the foundation has become unsettled and the foundation can start to sink. The soil should be leveled and compacted before a foundation is laid. If the soil is poorly compacted and loose soil is used before laying the foundation, the weight of your home can cause the foundation to settle. Bay

Resistance piers is a two-step system. When it reaches the load-bearing soils, the hydraulic lifting system is then put into play and your foundation is restored to its appropriate elevation.

Helical piers are installed in the foundation of your home. Helical piers only require small equipment so your home and its surroundings have little disturbance. They are mechanically installed and are


screwed deep into the soil. The areas of your foundation are carefully mapped out and foundation leveling finds the best approach to installing the helical piers.

Slab piers are made for structural slab support. The slab piers are installed using a grid pattern with spacing no greater than five feet apart. After they are installed, the slab load is transferred across the piers evenly by activating the hydraulic rams simultaneously.
