Concrete Lifting

Bay Area Underpinning offers the exclusive PolyRenewal™ system, a proven solution for lifting and securing sunken concrete slabs.

Schedule Free Inspection

Despite being a widely used fundamental construction material, concrete is still prone to damage. Whether it’s pool decks, patios, sidewalks, or driveways, the concrete on your property can develop cracks and settle over time. 

These issues pose significant dangers to your home and loved ones. Cracked or sunken slabs diminish curb appeal and create safety hazards for those walking or driving on your property. 

Preserving the integrity of concrete slabs is vital for safety, aesthetics, and property value. It’s vital to tackle these problems promptly by consulting local concrete lifting specialists for a thorough inspection and professional repair solutions. 

As the leading authority in the industry, Bay Area Underpinning has been helping homeowners in the Bay Area lift and stabilize their concrete for nearly 20 years. Our team of experts uses the SettleStop™ PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting system to swiftly identify and repair problematic concrete. Let’s work together to restore your concrete to its former glory. 

Concrete Problem Signs

Identifying signs of undermined concrete caused by unstable soil, oversaturation, poor drainage, invasive tree roots, or installation issues is crucial. Early detection allows us to customize repairs for your property’s specific needs.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

What is PolyRenewal™? 

PolyRenewal™ is a cutting-edge solution for sunken and cracked concrete. Our lightweight polyurethane foam gently lifts and stabilizes concrete slabs. 

Bay Area Underpinning uses this system by injecting high-density, closed-cell polyurethane foam beneath affected slabs, effectively stabilizing the concrete and underlying soil. This approach is superior to traditional methods like mudjacking, offering longer-lasting results with minimal disruption. 


Concrete Lifting Solutions

Bay Area Underpinning’s adaptable PolyRenewal™ system suits various concrete surfaces on your property, ensuring an ideal solution for all your concrete repair requirements. 

FAQs

Concrete may sink due to various reasons, including settling or eroding soil, oversaturation from precipitation, expansive soil, drought conditions, poor drainage, invasive tree roots, ground movement, and installation problems. Promptly addressing these issues is vital to prevent future structural damage. Our experts will identify the causes and recommend suitable repairs during a free inspection

The cost of our services varies based on factors like damage extent, treatment area size, and site conditions. During a free inspection, we provide a tailored, accurate estimate. We also offer transparent pricing, no-obligation repair estimates, and various financing options

Bay Area Underpinning specializes in the PolyRenewal™ system because of its superior, quick-curing, and long-lasting results. We do not offer methods like mudjacking, repouring, or patching, as they are less effective, more invasive, costly, and fail to address the root issues. Choose a durable repair that safeguards your home for years to come. Learn more during a free inspection with one of our experts.
