Crawl Space Repair Folsom CA
A sagging crawl space is perhaps the most common crawl space issue faced by property owners around Northern California. Crawl spaces often sag due to the following:
- The soil around the pier blocks is soft due to water intrusion into the crawl space, caused by poor drainage around the property’s exterior.
- The floor was not given adequate support during initial construction.
- The existing screw jacks were not installed properly and have no corrosion protection.
- The installation of interior crawl space support posts in problematic soils has caused them to settle.
Your sagging crawl space can often be repaired by simply replacing the deteriorated screw jacks with new ones. When the new screw jacks are in place, the floor can be lifted and leveled.

The most common signs of crawl space problems are:

Drilled Concrete Piers
If your home is located on a hillside and you have sloped floors, difficulty opening doors and windows, etc., you could be experiencing foundation movement and this can be fixed using drilled concrete piers.
Drilled concrete piers are commonly used when there is expansive soil, when the soil’s upper layer is weak, when the soil is prone to erosion, and also when there are lateral forces pushing against the foundation. Some of the major applications of drilled concrete piers are:
- Stabilizing foundations
- Retaining walls
- Seismic loading
- Deep foundation systems
Push Pier Installation
Push piers, also called resistance piers, are an efficient solution for homeowners facing foundation settlement. Push piers are used to lift, level, and permanently stabilize a foundation.
Heavy duty steel brackets are attached to the foundation and then the piers are driven through the brackets deep down into load-bearing soil. Once the piers are in place, the foundation can be lifted and leveled using a synchronized hydraulic lifting system.
