Depending on the condition of your crawl space, crawl space repair experts in Martinez, CA, from Bay Area Underpinning might recommend the following services:

Crawl Space Foundation Repair
When you see signs of settlement like misaligned doors and windows, cracks, etc., it could be due to one or more of the following:

  • Wrong installation of screw jacks
  • Settling interior crawl space support posts caused by soil movement
  • Lack of support for the floor
  • Poor drainage around the exterior of the home, which leads to water intrusion in the crawl space

To repair crawl space foundations, our experts at Bay Area Underpinning use screw jacks. These are available in different sizes and weight capacities, depending on the condition of your crawl space. After the deteriorated screw jacks or posts are removed and replaced, the sagging floor can be lifted.

Signs Your Crawl Space Needs Repair

Some signs a crawl space needs repair include sloped floors, interior wall cracks, and floors that feel spongy when walked on. Other signs that you need to look out for are:

  • Increased moisture level in the crawl space
  • Pest infestation
  • Increased indoor humidity
  • Wood rot
  • Condensation
  • Issues with the floor joists
  • Musty smelling crawl space
  • Misaligned doors and windows

Helical Piers Installation

Helical piers (also called helical piles) are large, steel foundation pins that look something like corkscrews. They’re often used for new construction projects requiring a deep foundation system due to soil conditions.

Helical piers are designed to provide the necessary support to prevent new buildings from settling. They come with many benefits, including:

  • Can be installed quickly
  • Provide increased stability with the use of multiple bearing plates
  • Can be installed any time of the year
  • Suitable for environmentally sensitive areas
  • Require less excavation compared to other types of piers

Concrete Lifting

Over time, the concrete slabs around your home – patio, driveway, sidewalk, pool deck – can become uneven for different reasons, including drainage issues, expansive soil, tree roots, etc. Sunken concrete slabs can be a trip hazard and can lead to serious injuries. Fortunately, they can be lifted using a procedure called slabjacking.

Slabjacking, or concrete lifting, is a technique that involves the use of polyurethane foam injection to lift the sunken concrete. Once the foam is injected beneath the affected concrete, it starts to react and expand, raising and releveling the slab.

I hired BAU to underpin our foundation. After extensive research I learned that BAU does the best work and at reasonable prices. Jordan lead the crew that did the work on our house, and he was a joy to work with and we really trusted him and his team to take care of us. I am really glad we hired BAU, and we are happy to have our hillside home properly secured for the future!

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

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.
