Slab Piers

Settlement issues in slab foundations jeopardize a home’s structural integrity just as much as in basements and crawl spaces.

Do not dismiss key indicators such as evident floor cracking or unevenness—these are telltale signs that your home’s foundational security and stability are at risk.

At Bay Area Underpinning, we offer SettleStop Slab Piers, a steadfast and fully guaranteed method to stabilize and even potentially lift your home’s sinking foundation. As experts in foundation repair, we understand the need to repair your foundation right the first time. 

Explore this page to understand how slab piers are critical and the best choice for your foundation problems.

What Are Slab Piers?

Slab piers are custom-designed foundation repair tools that provide a permanent solution for sinking slab foundations. They are tailored specifically for slabs, unlike universal fixes on the market.

Acting as robust supports, these piers become the solid pillars your home needs, transferring its weight to the deep, stable earth and preventing further settlement and instability caused by shifting soils.

Besides providing stability, slab piers may also help lift your home to its original level.

Slab piers are integral to a broader structural health strategy for your home making them crucial for the comprehensive upkeep of your property.
