There are many different layers of soil underneath your home. They all have different density, thickness, and characteristics.

If the soil underneath your foundation causes settlement issues in your home, contact Bay Area Underpinning today. We offer concrete and foundation repair services with underpinning piers and poly foam injection to level and stabilize your foundation. Our services include foundation lifting, foundation leveling, floor leveling, and foundation stabilization. We stop settling foundations in California.
To lift, level and stabilize your home back to its original level, we use ECP steel piers and helical piers. Steel piers are pushed deep into the ground until they reach stable soil to support the structure's weight. The piers lift the foundation back to its normal level.
Helical piers, similar to steel piers, are designed to support and stabilize sinking foundations. They are screwed into the ground, then a foundation bracket is connected to the piers. The structure's weight is transferred onto the piers, preventing settlement.
Slab piers can also be used to stabilize and support settling concrete slabs. These piers are a unique type of resistance piers that are applied to residential homes and commercial buildings. These piers are installed deep into stable soil to lift concrete slab and interior walls. They will permanently restore your foundation and increase your home's property value.
Repairing your settling foundation prevents further damage such as walls cracks, basement seepage, bowing walls and other foundation issues.
