Foundation failure is caused mostly due to soil-related issues. When the soil beneath your foundation gets too saturated, it cause the soil to heave, thus moving the foundation too. When the soil gets too dry, it will leave voids beneath the foundation causing it to shrink into these voids.
Whatever foundation repair needs you may have, the experts at Bay Area Underpinning has the solutions for you.
When the gaps and spaces in your Bay Area home are caused by foundation failure, Bay Area Underpinning uses steel push piers or helical piers for underpinning. These piers are driven deep into the ground through the unstable soil layer until they reach a more stable soil layer. Each pier is individually load tested to ensure optimal efficiency. After each pier is installed, the entire structure is lifted onto the piers to level and stabilize the structure back to its original level. This will ensure stability of the foundation for years to come. We only use the best products available for underpinning. They are manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leader in the manufacturing of foundation repair products.
After the foundation has been lifted and stabilized, any exposed gaps and cracks can be sealed. Your foundation is the most important part of your home or business. The entire structure relies on the foundation to hold it together. When a foundation starts to have problems, so does the entire home. Don't ignore any any of the signs of foundation failure. The sooner the repair is done, the least amount of damage that will occur in your home.
