Foundation Repair Services in Napa
We’ve been repairing foundations in Napa, CA for the past 15 years and – to date – have successfully completed over 2700 foundation repairs in Northern California. We know foundation problems are stressful for homeowners. That’s why we’re committed to making sure you fully understand your particular foundation problem, how we’re going to fix it, and why we’ve chosen a specific solution.
If you’ve noticed that your doors and windows are sticking, or that your floors are sloping, you may have an un-level foundation. We can lift and level your foundation via heavy duty steel push piers.
A helical pier looks something like a giant corkscrew. They’re perfect for construction projects requiring a deep foundation. They’re also less expensive than traditional concrete piers.
Drilled Concrete Piers
Is your home built on a hillside? Have you noticed that your floors are sloping, or that doors and windows are sticking? We use drilled concrete piers to re-stabilize homes experiencing foundation problems due to soil erosion.
Polyurethane Foam Injection
Sunken concrete slabs such as sidewalks, pool decks, and driveways, are trip hazards. This is both a safety and a liability issue. We can re-level sunken concrete via a process known as ”slabjacking”. This involves injecting polyurethane foam under a slab in order to raise it back up again. It’s less expensive than replacing the concrete, and you can walk on the slab immediately after the repair has been completed.
Crawl Space Screw Jack Replacement
Once in awhile, a homeowner will call us up and report signs of foundation settlement in their home. Upon inspection, we find that the foundation is sound and the problem is either deteriorated screw jacks or settled crawl space support posts. We repair this problem by using the existing pier locks and then just removing/replacing the screw jacks or posts. The floor can then be lifted again.
Here’s some good news. Most of the time foundations don’t need to be replaced. They can be repaired. However, every now and then it’s just not cost-effective to repair a foundation. We do both full and partial foundation replacement.
