Because we’ve successfully completed 2700 foundation repairs in Northern California, we can put your mind at ease by walking you through the process step by step. We’ll educate you about exactly what we’re doing and keep you updated while we’re doing it.

Foundation Repair

Signs of a sinking foundation include floors that slope, and doors and windows that stick. The most common cause of a sinking foundation is settlement. This might be something that happened slowly over time, or it might be due to a catastrophic event. Whatever the cause, we can use heavy-duty steel push piers to lift the building back up again.

Helical Piers 

Helical piers get their name because they’re shaped like a helices. They’re giant screws, in other words. They’re less expensive that concrete piers, easily install in no time, and are great for construction projects requiring a deep foundation system.

Drilled Concrete Piers 

If your home is situated on the side of a hill, you may eventually notice foundation settlement caused by soil movement. This happens because the soil that was once under your foundation at the top of the hill, eventually makes its way down the hill. Signs include windows and doors that are no longer aligned, sloped floors, and cracks in drywall. We can install concrete piers deep into the bedrock in order to stabilize the structure.

Polyurethane Foam Injection 

Settling in concrete sidewalks and other types of walkways is caused by a number of things, including expansive soils, tree roots, and problems with drainage. All these cause soil movement under the slab which then causes it to sink. Uneven concrete is both a safety and a liability issue, and should be repaired immediately.

Lifting settled concrete is a minimally-invasive process that involves injecting polyurethane foam under the slab in order to lift it up. It’s less expensive than replacing the concrete and when the procedure is complete, you can use the sidewalk or walkway immediately.

Crawl Space Screw Jack Replacement 

There are times when homeowners notice signs of settlement even though their home’s foundation is perfectly sound. When this happens the problem is usually cased by deteriorated screw jacks or settled crawl space support posts. We can use the existing pier locks and just remove/replace the posts or screw jacks. The floor can then be lifted up again.

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.

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!
