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.

I had a great experience with Bay Area Underpinning. They fixed my foundation, which was a substantial job, in a matter days, and did all of the engineering and permitting at a very fair price. I cannot say enough good things about Tyler, Angelo, and Louise, who did all the hard work. They were on time each day, very diligent, and patiently answered all of my questions. Then, when the job was finished, they cleaned the work area and left it in a better condition than they found it. That was awesome, and tells you what you need to know about these guys and the company. I couldn't be happier.

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.
