Foundation Repair Services in Benicia
To date, we’ve completed over 2700 foundation repairs in Northern California, including Benicia. We know foundation problems are stressful for homeowners, and that’s why we are committed to making your foundation repair as stress-free as possible. We’ll tell you exactly what’s wrong with your foundation, how we’re going to fix it, and why we’re going to be using a particular solution.
If you’ve noticed sloped floors, or doors and windows that are hard to open, your home’s foundation be no longer be level. We use heavy duty steel push piers to stabilize and lift sinking foundations.
Helical piers look something like giant corkscrews. They’re great for construction projects that require a deep foundation. They easy to install, and less expensive than traditional concrete piers.
Structures built on the sides of hills will sometimes experience foundation destabilization caused by soil erosion. This happens because soil tends to migrate downhill over time. We can use concrete piers – drilled deep down into the bedrock – to re-stabilize your home’s foundation.
Sunken concrete walkways – whether they be sidewalks, pool decks, or driveways – are both a safety and a liability issue. Concrete slabs can become un-level due to drainage problems, expansive soil, or invasive tree roots. We can re-level sunken concrete using a minimally-invasive process that involves injecting a special polyurethane foam under the slab in order to lift it back up again. It’s less expensive than replacing the concrete and you can begin using the newly-lifted slab immediately after the repair is done.
Sometimes customers report signs of foundation trouble even though their home’s foundation is completely sound. This is usually caused by one of two things: Either the screw jacks have deteriorated, or the support posts in the crawl space have settled. We can use the existing pier locks and just remove/replace the posts or screw jacks. The floor can then be lifted again.
Most foundation problems can be repaired. However, every now and then, for a variety of reasons, it’s simply not cost-effective to repair a foundation. We do both full and partial foundation replacement.
