What We Offer in Commercial Services

Bay Area Underpinning provides customized, holistic repair solutions that cater to the unique requirements of our commercial clientele, including:

Galvanized Steel Push Piers

Galvanized steel push piers—also called piles, push piles, and resistance piers—redistribute a building’s weight to stable soil layers. They are essential for stabilizing and elevating foundations that have settled.

Push piers are hydraulically driven deep into the ground to leverage the building’s weight and anchor into load-bearing soil. Once set, synchronized hydraulic lifts gently elevate the structure to its optimal level, ensuring it’s as level as possible without risking structural damage.

Polyurethane Injections

Concrete lifting with polyurethane injections quickly lifts and stabilizes uneven slabs, eliminating tripping hazards on sidewalks, driveways, streets, and warehouse floors. Typically completed in hours, the process involves drilling small holes in the concrete, injecting expanding polyurethane foam, and patching the holes. This method is more cost-effective and durable than concrete replacement or mudjacking. It’s also applicable for deep injections.

New Construction Helical Piers

For new constructions requiring deep foundations, helical piers offer an efficient and less invasive alternative to traditional concrete piers for new constructions requiring deep foundations. Installed by screwing into the soil to engineer-specified depths, they are available in various sizes and designs to support deep foundations and prevent settling.

Helical Tiebacks

Helical tiebacks are used to reinforce, straighten, and stabilize bowing walls and retaining walls. The installation process is swift and non-intrusive, minimizing yard disruption. These steel rods can gradually straighten walls over time or immediately when combined with excavation.

Carbon Fiber Reinforcements

Carbon fiber has been a staple in commercial aircraft construction for decades, renowned for its unparalleled strength and resistance to breakage. We find it applicable for commercial buildings and have used this trusted method to stabilize cracked or bowed concrete walls for many years. The installation is quick and clean, with straps anchoring at the foundation’s footing, wall, and sill plate to prevent further wall movement.

Drilled Concrete Piers

Ideal for structures on hillsides affected by soil creep, concrete piers stabilize foundations experiencing lateral movement or settling. They’re also used for retaining walls and new constructions needing deep foundations. The process involves drilling into bedrock, placing steel reinforcement cages, and filling them with concrete.

Our repair services are subjected to rigorous testing and are installed to exceed the highest industry standards, assuring long-lasting results. Whether your goal is to achieve ADA compliance or enhance your property’s aesthetics, Bay Area Underpinning is equipped with the specialized expertise and tools necessary to achieve exceptional results.

This company gets a 10 out of 10 from me. From my initial consultation with Rick DeSoto to the work performed by foreman Raul, and his team Jonathan and Demareon, this was the best possible experience in working Bay Area Underpinning for the first time. The crew was professional and adjusted the leveling jacks (and even added a couple as was needed) with care and great attention. Pricing was very reasonable too. I'll never trust any other company to do this type of work at my home. 100% satisfied with the work and my interactions with the crew. A+ work performed = A VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER!!!

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

I can’t praise Bay Area Underpinning enough! Everything from their support team, to their customer service, and the quality of their work has surpassed my expectations. I’ve used other foundations companies in the past and they weren’t great for many reasons – Bay Area Underpinning has none of the challenges I’ve experienced elsewhere, and massive positive upsides! Would highly recommend!

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.

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.

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 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 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.
