Causes Of Crawl Space Foundation Problems
We’ve inspected many homes that had signs of settlement – cracked walls and misaligned windows and doors – even though the foundation was level. This usually happens for the following reasons…
- The interior crawl space support posts have settled. This is often because they were installed in problematic soils that experience a lot of seasonal movement. For example, expansive clay soil.
- There is poor drainage around the exterior of the home which allows water intrusion into the crawlspace. This softens the soil supporting the pier blocks.
- The existing screw jacks were installed incorrectly at grade level and have no corrosion protection. This allows moisture contact and deterioration of the screw jack base.
There isn’t enough support. Sometimes, the original design didn’t provide adequate support for the floor. If so, more support may be needed.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

Working with BayArea Underpinning was a great experience. Ron Hobbs was professional and so easy to work with. Their crew especially Mike was detailed and on time. Very honest company.

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.

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!

While crawl space foundations have been popular for decades, they are prone to problems that can impact the building's structural integrity.
Crawl space support posts are vertical columns – made of steel, wood, or concrete – that support houses with crawl spaces.
