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.

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
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.

We used BAU to install piers and screw jacks to level our home. Really pleased with the entire process. The communication was stellar and the foreman made sure we understood each step as it was happening. The whole crew was professional, polite, punctual, and very neat. Each day they left the job site nice and tidy. The overall result is amazing. Our floors are level and the house looks great. Would highly recommend for any foundation/leveling needs.

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.

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

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!
