Avoid Foundation Failure in Hercules

Most foundation issues result from soil related problems: overloading, poor waterproofing, poor compaction, soil erosion, soil expansion, excessive organic materials/debris, and soil shrinkage. These conditions make the moisture content inconsistent in the soil and produces stress on the home's foundation. As a homeowner, you can help avoid foundation failure by keeping your soil saturation consistent and preventing expansion soils.

  1. Avoid over-watering your lawn.
  2. Clean your gutters from leaves and debris on a regular basis.
  3. Repair damaged or leaky swimming pools and underground pipes.
  4. Make sure your landscaping is not too close to your foundation. Landscaping should be at least 5 feet away.
  5. Install the proper downspouts to allow water to flow into your lawn or the street.
  6. Install an adequate waterproofing system.

Foundation Repair Options for Hercules, CA

concrete floor leveling for Hercules, caFluctuating moisture levels can play a huge factor for settling concrete floors. The soil underneath the concrete slab dries and shrinks during hot, dry conditions. As a result, voids form under the foundation causing it to crack, sink or move. Along with settling concrete, homes may also experience wall and floor cracks. Windows and doors may be hard to open and close, and walls may start to bow or lean. If you notice any of these issues, contact our professionals today before the problem gets worse.

Bay Area Underpinning offers quality concrete repair solutions to level and support your concrete surface. Our methods include:

  • Floor Leveling: We stabilize your foundation by applying helical and steel piers to your foundation.
  • Foundation Lifting: We use steel piers that are attached to steel brackets so we can safely lift your home and repair your settling foundation.
  • Foundation Leveling: Foundations that are unleveled may experience wall and foundation cracks. Over time, the walls of your home may eventually collapse. We level homes to eliminate sticking doors/window, slab cracks and sloping floors.
