When your foundation starts to chip and flake on the surface of your home or business, it is not only unsightly and lowers the value of your home, but this chipping, crumbling and flaking can also be a sign of foundation failure. If this is ignored, it can lead to complete foundation replacement. Regular foundation inspection is important because it enables you, as a home or business owner, to get your foundation fixed before it leads to complete failure.
Crumbling, chipping, flaking foundation is just one of several signs of foundation failure. Some of the other signs to look for in and around your home to look for are:
All of these are signs that you may be in need of foundation repair. Let the professionals at Bay Area Underpinning inspect your home and find the solutions needed for your foundation repair. Most foundation problems in the Bay Area are caused by soil-related issues. When the soil beneath your foundation gets saturated, it will heave, putting pressure on the foundation. When it becomes too dry, it will shrink, causing the foundation to shift and move. This movement and shifting is the cause for your foundation to crumble, chip and flake. Your foundation is the most important part of your home as it is the base for the entire structure.
To avoid total foundation replacement, Bay Area Underpinning has the solutions for you. Our underpinning products include steel piers and helical piers. These piers are driven deep into the soil until they reach more stable soil, then the entire structure is lifted onto these piers to lift and stabilize your foundation back to its original level. The products we use are the best in the industry, manufactured by Earth Contact Products. We guarantee our products and our work.
Steel push piers are driven individually deep into the soil and are load tested before being installed to assure they meet all of the standards and will provide the support needed. Helical piers are similar to a large screw. They are driven mechanically into the ground to a deep soil layer. Once they reach this layer, the structure is transferred onto the piers to stabilize the structure.
