If you have noticed uneven or sloping floors in your home, the root issue lies in your foundation. Foundation settlement can happen to any home over time. In most cases, it is due to water-related issues. If the soil around your home is heavily saturated, or if water is seeping through your foundation walls, it can wear away at the soil around the concrete and cause your foundation to sink and settle into the ground.
Here are some of the common water issues that we see in California:
If your foundation is settling due to any of these issues, it is likely to produce uneven floors accompanied by other issues, such as: wall cracks, ceiling cracks, misaligned doors and windows, and more.
If any of these issues are prevalent in your home, it's time for foundation leveling. Fixing your foundation is not a do-it-yourself job that can be achieved with materials from your local hardware store. Solving foundation issues requires heavy duty equipment and highly trained professionals that can get the job done right. At Bay Area Underpinning, that's exactly what you'll find.
Bay Area Underpinning uses the latest underpinning products to lift and level your uneven floors in California. Our products are manufactured by the industry-leading company for foundation products: Earth Contact Products (ECP). Since foundation settlement is mainly caused by soil related issues, our products are designed to penetrate deep into the soil and stabilize the home. The methods that we use are proven to permanently maintain the structural integrity of your home. This photo shows what it looks like before and after using ECP piers for floor leveling in Bay Area homes.
To lift and level uneven floors, we use the following ECP products:
Helical Piers: Helical piers are driven deep into weak soil until they reach a stable layer of soil. They are designed to support uneven floors by lifting and leveling the foundation back to its original position.
Steel Push Piers: Steel piers are used to repair settling foundations caused by soil related issues. They support and stabilize the structure's load-bearing walls by transferring the structure's weight to stable soil. Each pier is load tested individually by using the maximum weight of the structure.
