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.

Crawl Space Repair Solutions

At Bay Area Underpinning, we utilize SettleStop™ IntelliJack™ Crawl Space Jacks, robust steel support posts specially designed for crawl spaces. Installed beneath the floor joists and securely attached to the support beams above, our crawl space support posts are adjustable, allowing for upward support and stabilization of the entire floor structure. 

With an impressive allowable load capacity exceeding 24,000 lbs. per support jack, our crawl space support system meets the highest industry standards, ensuring the safety and integrity of your home. 

Don’t let crawl space issues compromise your home’s safety, comfort, and value. Whether dealing with sagging floors, uneven surfaces, or musty odors from below, Bay Area Underpinning has the expertise to address these problems head-on. Acting promptly can help you avoid costly future repairs. 

Our dedicated customer service team is ready to guide you through our extensive range of crawl space repair services and help you schedule a free, no-obligation inspection of your home. 

During this comprehensive evaluation, our certified inspectors assess the condition of your crawl space, identifying the root causes of your structural issues. We specialize in providing tailored solutions, including installing robust crawl space supports to fortify your home’s foundation. Contact us today to initiate your journey toward a safer, more stable, and healthier living environment. You can count on Bay Area Underpinning to be by your side every step of the way. 

FAQs

Sagging and uneven floors can result from over spanned joists, inadequate support, weakened joists, and excessive humidity. These sources lead to creaking noises, visual disarray, and potential safety hazards. Bay Area Underpinning experts will identify the exact cause of the sagging and uneven floors during a free inspection, and recommend customized repair solutions, including the IntelliJack™ Crawl Space Jacks. 

We do not recommend DIY crawl space repairs, as this can be dangerous. Big-box store products can be costly, time-consuming, ineffective, and temporary. For reliable crawl space repairs, contact a repair professional you can trust. Bay Area Underpinning will complete a thorough, free inspection, determine the cause of damage, and recommend the best repair solutions for your home. 

Crawl space repair costs vary depending on the extent of damage, crawl space size, and the type and amount of repairs needed. You will receive a detailed cost breakdown during a free inspection with a Bay Area Underpinning expert. We also provide no-obligation repair estimates, transparent pricing, and financing options

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.

Bay Area Underpinning is THE company to use for foundation work. Aaron, and his crew, were incredibly professional from start to finish. The team kept the work space clean and tidy, communicated well, and updated me as timelines were solidified. They were always on time and ready to maximize their output for the day. I would recommend them in a heartbeat.

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.

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 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.

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

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.
