As a leading foundation contractor in the San Francisco Bay Area that specializes in foundation lifting, leveling, and stabilizing we have found a huge demand for resistance piers in the Bay Area.

We install may different types of piers for underpinning purposes such as resistance piers, drilled concrete piers, helical piers and slab piers. If the home is not experiencing lateral movement or risk there of then steel resistance piers are usually the best option because the same system to drive the piers is used to lift the foundatin also which can be done quickly with a syncronized hydraulic lifting system. Resistance piers are usually about half the price of traditional drilled concrete piers and can be installed much faster with no time wasted on waiting for concrete to set up. The piers are also load tested on site so there is no need for a soils report.
