Foundation Repair Services in Hayward
We’ve been hard at work fixing and replacing foundations in Hayward since 2005. To date, we’ve either repaired or replaced somewhere around 2700 foundations in Northern California. With that kind of experience under our belt, we know how stressful foundation problems can be for homeowners. That’s why we’re committed to making sure you fully understand your specific foundation problem, how we’re going to repair it, and why we’ve chosen a particular solution rather than something else.
If your home’s foundation is no longer level you might be noticing problems like sloped floors, or doors and windows that don’t open as easily as they once did. We can re-level your foundation using heavy duty steel push piers.
If you have a construction project that needs a deep foundation, screw-shaped helical piers are an excellent choice. They’re fast and easy to install, and less expensive than traditional concrete piers.
Structures built on hillsides often suffer foundation destabilization caused by soil erosion. This happens when the soil under the foundation slowly makes its way downhill. Once this starts to happen you might notice that your floors are slightly sloped, doors and windows stick, etc. We can re-stabilize the foundation via drilled concrete piers that go deep down into the bedrock.
Sunken concrete walkways, including sidewalks, pool decks, and driveways, are a common sight. If you’ve ever tripped and fallen because of uneven concrete you know that it’s both a safety and a liability issue. We can quickly re-level uneven concrete via ”slabjacking”. This involves injecting a special polyurethane foam under the slab in order to lift it back up. It’s less expensive than replacing the concrete and the repair is over in no time.
Sometimes it happens that a homeowner will contact us thinking their foundation is settling, even though there’s nothing wrong with the foundation. The culprit is usually either deteriorated screw jacks or settled support posts in the crawl space. This is easy to fix. We use the existing pier locks and then remove/replace the posts or screw jacks. The floor can then be lifted back up.
Believe it or not, we have a bit of good news: Most foundations don’t need to be replaced. They can be repaired. However, every now and then – for a variety of reasons – a foundation can’t be repaired. At Bay Area Underpinning we do both partial and full foundation replacements.
