Foundation Repair

Signs of an unlevel foundation include sloped floors and doors and windows that don’t open as easily as they once did. In this case we will use heavy duty steel push piers to repair your foundation.

Helical Piers 

Helical Piers are an excellent choice if your project needs a deep foundation. They are less expensive than traditional concrete piers and the installation is fast and easy.

Drilled Concrete Piers 

If your home is built on a hillside, you are at risk of foundation destabilization caused by soil erosion. The soil under the foundation slowly makes it’s way down hill leading to problems such as sloped floors, doors and windows that stick, etc. We fix this by drilling concrete piers into the bedrock to re-stabilize your foundation.

Polyurethane Foam Injection 

Sunken concrete walkways, including sidewalks, pool decks, and driveways, are signs of an unlevel foundation. As you well know, it is important to fix these problems fast as they can quickly escalate into a safety and liability issue. In this case, re-leveling the concrete is done by “slabjacking”.  This is when we inject a special polyurethane foam under the slab to lift it back up, which will quickly lift uneven concrete

Crawl Space Screw Jack Replacement 

There are times when homeowners notice signs of settling even when their foundation is perfectly secure. If this is your case, this is usually caused by deteriorated screw jacks or the settling of support posts in the crawl space. Luckily, this is an easy fix. To lift the floor back up we will use the existing pier locks to remove / replace the posts or screw jacks.

Foreman Andrew is incredible and a leader. We hired BAU to perform a whole house underpinning job from December 2022-March 2023. Our recently purchased 1950's home sat on expansive clay soil and had been settling for decades. The project was a big job and complicated by the winter rains that occurred throughout many days of the project. Andrew was extremely professional, knowledgeable about every aspect of the job and managed the entire project class and skill.He communicates very effectively and is transparent to assuage any concerns that we had on the project. He also shows up earlier than anyone, and works the entire day, rain or shine, in the mud and trenches with his team. This leadership was impressive. Since the completion of our project, he has remained available and came out to make some minor adjustments promptly and free of charge. Without any hesitation, I would entrust BAU to do my foundation work with the demand that Andrew lead the project. Thank you Andrew and your crew for a job well done.

I can’t praise Bay Area Underpinning enough! Everything from their support team, to their customer service, and the quality of their work has surpassed my expectations. I’ve used other foundations companies in the past and they weren’t great for many reasons – Bay Area Underpinning has none of the challenges I’ve experienced elsewhere, and massive positive upsides! Would highly recommend!
