Another reason to be concerned of foundation problems is earthquakes. Even small tremors can cause your foundation to shift.

Foundation Repair Solutions in El Sobrante, CA

Bay Area Underpinning offers quality foundation repair solutions using only the best products on the market. These products are manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leader in the manufacturing of foundation repair products in the industry. We use underpinning products such as steel push piers, helical piers and slab piers to lift and stabilize the foundation.

  • Steel push piers - These piers are driven deep into the soil, through unstable soil layers until they reach a solid soil layer. Then each pier is individually load tested. After load testing, the entire weight of the structure is lifted onto these piers to level and stabilize the structure for many years to come.
  • Helical piers - Helical piers are like large screws and are an excellent choice for foundation repair and stabilization when light structural loads, unstable rock basements or very deep load bearing layers are present. Like steel push piers, these helical piers are driven deep into the soil until they reach solid soil then the entire weight of the structure is hydraulically lifted onto the piers to level and stabilize the structure.
  • Slab piers - Slab piers are used to level and stabilize a structure that is built on concrete slabs.
  • Helical tieback anchors - Helical tieback anchors are used to pull bowing or leaning walls back to their original level and they also strengthen the wall so there won't be future bowing or leaning.
