Foundation Repair Services in Hercules
Since 2005, our team has successfully repaired over 2700 foundations in Northern California. With all that experience under our belt, we understand how stressful and confusing the process can be for homeowners. So we are committed to helping you every step of the way. We will educate you on what we are doing, why we’ve chosen a particular solution, and how long it will take to fix it.
If you are experiencing problems with doors and windows sticking, or sloped floors in your home, your foundation may not be leveled. To fix this we will use heavy duty steel push piers to lift your foundation to its original position.
Helical piers are something like giant screws. They are ideal for projects with a deep foundation. They are less expensive than traditional concrete piers, and are very fast and easy to install.
If your home is constructed on a hillside, it is more at risk for soil erosion. Sloped floors, wall cracks, and problems opening/closing doors and windows are signs of de-stabilization. We re-stabilize your foundation by drilling concrete piers deep into the bedrock.
Concrete walkways can sink over time from invasive tree roots, poor drainage, expansive soil, etc. We lift them again by injecting a polyurethane foam under the slab, lifting the concrete back into place. Sunken concrete walkways can quickly become a safety hazard, therefore fixing them is time sensitive. Our minimally-invasive technique is so fast, you can use the path or walkway immediately after the repair has been completed.
There are times that homeowners notice signs of foundation settlement even if there foundation is sound. This is often caused by screw jacks that have deteriorated or crawl space support posts that have settled. To fix this we will use the existing pier locks to remove/replace the screw jacks or posts so the floor can then be lifted again.
Most foundations can be repaired, although every now and then there are cases where it is more cost-effective to replace a foundation altogether. Whatever the case, you are in good hands! Our team has years of experience in both full and partial foundation replacements.
