Foundation Repair Services in Alameda

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…

Foundation Repair

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.

Helical Piers 

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.

Drilled 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.

Polyurethane Foam Injection 

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.

Crawl Space Screw Jack Replacement 

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.

We recently had foundation work completed. The crew was on time every day and worked hard to keep a very dirty job and their traffic through the house to a minimum. The crew chief, Robert Busch, was amazing. Telling us what was planned for the day, any unforeseen problems, and giving us a recap of what was completed daily. We could not have had a better experience with his communication and hard work. Everyone was respectful and friendly. I also thought that the evaluation and estimate experience was positive. Jim communicated clearly and we never felt that work being suggested was unnecessary. He explained clearly and showed us pictures of what was going on under the house.Hope we never need them again, but would use them in a flash.

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.

I recently hired Bay Area Underpinning to underpin my home and my experience from start to finish was seamless.Jordan Christle, the lead foreman and his team were exceptional. They were communicative, polite and professional at all times. They were happy to answer any questions that I had prior to and during the process of underpinning my home and were quick to provide clarification and explanations to any of my concerns that I had during the job. Jordan provided extensive quality checks at all phases with his crew to ensure the best outcome for the home owner.The team’s knowledge base about their field was remarkable as they were able to come up with quality solutions that we could visibly see.I recommend Bay Area Underpinning without reservation and will continue to recommend them to anyone who should need their services.

I called in Bay Area Underpinning for foundation work. They were wonderful answering my many concerns, I received prompt return calls, the work was completed within an appropriate time frame, and the best thing he stayed with the estimate to the dollar. I loved the engineer, time frame, and minimal damage repair. I didn't know how my house was going to respond and even the marble and windows handled well. Unfortunately I didn't get the exact lift I wanted in the office even though they tried their hardest. My advice — call them when the problem first arises and the outcome and the house will lift with ease. I definitely recommend BAU. Because I live on a hill one pillar had to be covered – done. I also had a French drain installed to divert the water which was recommended. Thank you
