The homeowner of this Orinda, California home had a previous estimate for $35,000.00 to lift and stabilize the vertical settlement of their home using drilled concrete piers. Bay Area Underpinning installed 11 Earth Contact Products resistance piers to lift and stabilize the south-east wing of this Orinda home for nearly half the cost of the concrete pier option. The piers were load tested at 32,670#s each. When the lift occurred, the piers needed to only carry approximately 10,300#s to successfully lift and carry the weight of the structure, resulting in excess of a 3 to 1 safety factor on the piers. This home was lifted about 3-inches in the worst area, which is very common for foundation settlement in Orinda,CA.
