With 15+ years of experience under our belt, we have completed over 2,700 foundation repairs in the San Leandro, CA area. We understand the stress that comes with experiencing foundation problems, so we are committed to educating you on what your specific problem is, and how we plan to fix it the most efficient way.
If you notice sloped floors, or windows and doors that stick in your home, your foundation may not be leveled. In this situation, we use heavy duty steel push piers to stabilize the foundation.
Helical piers are the best choice for structures with deep foundations. These piers are shaped like a screw, are less expensive than concrete piers, and are easy to install.
Homes that are built on hillsides are often at risk for soil erosion. The soil at the top of the hill, over time makes its way down the hill, destabilizing your foundation. Signs this has affected your home are sloped floors and windows and doors that are hard to open and close. To fix this we drill concrete piers into the bedrock which will then stabilize your home.
As you well know, sunken concrete walkways are not only a safety hazard but are a liability, if not handled immediately. These slabs sink for a variety of reasons including drainage problems, invasive tree roots, and expansive soils. We use a minimally invasive procedure called “slabjacking”, to lift the concrete back up. Slabjacking is when a Polyurethane foam is injected under the slab, and as the foam expands, it lifts it back into position.
At times you can notice signs of settlement even if your foundation is perfectly sound. This is usually caused by screw jacks that have gone bad or sunken posts in your crawl space. To fix this we use existing pier locks to remove/replace the posts or screw jacks so the floor can then be lifted up.
While most foundation problems can be repaired, there are instances when the damage is so extensive, repairing it doesn’t make sense. Luckily, our expert team has years of experience with full and partial foundation replacements.
