Is your porch no longer the inviting space it once was due to sinking, cracking, or uneven surfaces? These issues diminish your home’s curb appeal and pose significant safety risks for you and your guests.

At Bay Area Underpinning, our concrete lifting process directly addresses these issues. As your trusted partner in comprehensive home solutions in San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento, and surrounding areas, we help homeowners restore their porches’ safety, stability, and curb appeal.

What is Concrete Porch Repair?

Concrete porch repair involves restoring damaged, cracked, or sunken concrete on your porch. This process is crucial for your property’s aesthetics and safety.

We implement our exclusive PolyRenewal™ polyurethane foam injections to lift concrete slabs and stabilize the underlying soil. This comprehensive approach ensures a lasting repair that complements your home’s health.

If we determine the problem is structural, we may also implement foundation repairs such as foundation piers.

Signs Your Concrete Porch Needs Repair

Your porch may require repair if you notice these problem signs:

Bay Area Underpinning’s concrete lifting and leveling method offers comprehensive protection by addressing the underlying causes of damage and cosmetic issues, preventing future damage.
