We’ve been taking care of foundation problems in Alameda CA since 2005. To date, we’ve successfully repaired or replaced over 2700 foundations in Northern California. We offer…
Sloped floors, difficulty opening doors and windows, and wall cracks are all signs of an un-level foundation. We can use heavy duty steel push piers to lift and re-stabilize the foundation.
Spiral staircase-shaped (or corkscrew, if you prefer!) helical piers are great for projects that require a deep foundation. They’re both quick and easy to install, and they’re less expensive than traditional concrete piers.
If your home is situated on the side of a hill, it could be susceptible to foundation destabilization and lateral movement caused by soil creep. Concrete piers – drilled deep down into the bedrock – will resist this lateral movement.
Sunken, un-level concrete walkways – including sidewalks, pool decks, and driveways – are both a safety hazard and a liability issue. However, they can be easily lifted again using a minimally-invasive procedure known as slabjacking. This involves injecting a special foam under the slab in order to lift it back up. It’s a cost-effective alternative to replacing the concrete, and you can use the slab immediately after the repair is done.
Every once in awhile we find a home that’s showing signs of foundation trouble even though there’s nothing wrong with the foundation. This is what happens when either the screw jacks have gone bad, or when the supports in the crawl space have settled. We can fix this by using the existing pier locks, and then just removing/replacing the screw jacks or posts. The floor can then be lifted up again.

Bay Area Underpinning is OUTSTANDING!! Cody, Andrew, Francisco, David and their underpinning and concrete teams did exceptional work installing underpinnings to stabilize our house, then replacing the concrete patio that had to be removed to do the stabilization. Everyone on the teams were efficient, courteous, highly skilled, and thorough. I cannot recommend Bay Area Underpinning highly enough- through each step of the process, from the initial assessment and work quote, to the work and follow-up itself, the staff and crews of Bay Area Underpinning ensured that I was informed, reassured, and we’ll take care of. They were thoughtful about doing their work efficiently and cleaning up after the work was completed. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

Had BAU take care of a chimney that was leaning away from my home, fix my front door which would jam at times of the year and relevel my floors. This was my second time working with BAU who installed screw jacks and leveled my floors several years ago. This time, Juan took a look at the problem areas, took measurements, made recommendations that fit my needs and budget and answered all my questions. Gonzalo and team came to work on my property. They worked quickly to install piers under the chimney and in the crawl space. They put tarp down to keep the house clean in the areas they needed access and cleaned up after themselves each day on the job. They answered my questions and throughly explained the problems and solutions they would implement to level the floor. Overall, I'm pleased with their work, being on time each day, and communication skills and would recommend.
