Fireplace Movement, Fireplace Movement Fix, Bay Area Underpinning BlogAfter noticing recent movement in the fireplace of their home, the homeowner contacted Bay Area Underpinning to provide a solution to their foundation settlement issues.  It was determined that the fireplace settlement was causing distress on the interior framing of that area of the house and also starting to cause foundation settlement to the surrounding areas.  Two Earth Contact Products Model 300 resistance piers were driven to a depth of 22′ each and load tested to 21,000 lbs of resistance to stabilize their fireplace at their home in Vallejo, California.
