Santa Rosa, CA has periods of extreme drought and heavy rain. These conditions can cause foundation problems in the Santa Rosa, CA area. When the soil beneath the foundation gets extremely wet, it will heave and when extremely dry, it will shrink creating voids beneath the foundation. This shifting of the soil also causes the foundation to shift and settle. When this happens, there are some signs in and around your home to indicate that you may have foundation problems.

Foundation Repair Methods in Santa Rosa, CA

Foundation repair in Santa Rosa, CA by Bay Area UnderpinningBay Area underpinning uses underpinning products such as steel piers and helical piers for foundation repair. Steel piers are end-bearing piers that do not rely on any type of friction to produce the support that is installed for. The piers are individually load tested before installation to ensure that that they meet the standards and will products the support need for the repair. The piers are driven deep into the soil through the unstable soil layers until they reach load bearing soil. Then the hydraulic lifting system lifts the foundation onto the piers to level and stabilize the entire structure.

Helical piers are steel shafts similar to a large screw. They are used when there is challenging soil conditions. They can be installed in any weather conditions and there is very little disturbance to the area when installing helical piers.

Bay Area Underpinning also offers slab repair using slab piers. These piers work the same as steel piers and helical piers as they are an end-bearing pier that does not rely on skin friction to product support. They are installed using a grid pattern with spacing no greater than five feet apart. Once the piers are installed the slab load is transferred across the piers uniformly.
