  • Concrete Lifting – Uneven sidewalks, patios, driveways, and other concrete surfaces are a trip hazard. The good news is most uneven concrete slabs don’t require removal and replacement. We can easily raise them in just a few hours using polyurethane foam injection.
  • Drilled Concrete Piers – Drilled concrete piers are a common repair solution for homes built on hillsides that are experiencing lateral movement due to soil creep.
  • Helical Piers – Lightweight foundations that are settling can be raised and stabilized using helical piers. Helical piers are excellent for supporting foundations built on problematic soil.
  • Crawl Space Repair – A sinking crawl space can often be repaired using screw jacks. In most cases, the existing pier blocks are in great shape. So, we just remove and replace the posts or the damaged screw jacks. At that point, the floor can be lifted.
  • Foundation Repair – Bay Area Underpinning offers foundation repair using push piers, helical piers, slab piers, and more. Contact us today for a free foundation evaluation

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!

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.

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!

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.
