Don't ignore these signs. Call Bay Area Underpinning, so we can assess your property to determine the best foundation repair method for your commercial needs.

Structural Repair Solutions in California

Many of the same residential foundation repair techniques can be used in commercial and structural repairs. These products include heavy duty helical piers, steel push piers, and resistance piers. All piers are well suited for commercial foundation repair due to their lift capability, vibration free installation and easy load verification. The footings are wider and deeper, the walls are taller, and the loads are greater in every aspect of commercial foundation repair.

Bay Area Underpinning uses the best manufactured products made by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leading manufacturer of foundation products in the industry. They offer unlimited advantages for all of our commercial projects in California.

  • Resistance Piers: Our resistance piers are designed to drive deep into the soil to support structures, bypassing active soil. After reaching the soil, the hydraulic lifting system restores the foundation to its appropriate elevation.

  • Helical Piers: These piers can be installed year round and only require small equipment. This method does not cause as much disturbance to your commercial building. First we map out the area and find the best way to install your helical piers. After they have reached their capacity location, an underpinning steel foundation bracket is installed to the piers. The weight of your commercial building is transferred onto the piers, and then onto the soils below. This will lift your building into its original position.

  • Steel Push Piers: Steel push piers are driven deep into the soil to stabilize and support proper load bearing standards from the interior and exterior of the foundation. Steel piers offer ultimate capacity up to 79,000 lb and they are load tested during installation.

Helical tieback or even plate anchors are also widely used in commercial foundation repair.
