› Windsor, CA
With an expanding population of 26,801, the incorporated town of Windsor continues to grow. Windsor is nestled north of Santa Rosa that offers a variety of recreational opportunities and services for its residents. It is a great place to raise a family. During winter months, the town suffers from drought conditions causing the soil to pull away from the foundation. Due to a moisture imbalance in the soil, settlement and cracks develop in the home's foundation. At Bay Area Underpinning, we offer foundation repair services to fix foundation settlement in Windsor CA.
Know the Signs of Foundation Settlement in Windsor, CA
Due to dry weather conditions and inconsistent moisture levels, the soil in Windsor absorbs water. During spring, the heavy rainfalls cause the soil to swell and retain water. These conditions lead to foundation failure and cause cracks throughout the structure of your home. Make sure your landscaping is at least 5 feet away from your foundation to avoid transpiration. Transpiration occurs when the tree roots dehydrate the soil underneath the foundation and causes soil shrinkage. The process of soil shrinkage also leads to foundation failure.
There are early warning signs to detect foundation failure before it is too late. Early detection saves you thousands of dollars on foundation repairs and keeps your family safe. Look for the following signs in the interior and exterior of your home:
- Drywall cracks
- Foundation cracks
- Slab cracks
- Bowed walls
- Leaning walls
- Misaligned doors/windows
- Leaning chimney
- Stair step cracks in brick
- Doors that stick and won't close
- Fascia board pulling away
Our team of professionals will inspect your property and determine the best foundation repair products for your home. Our foundation products are made by ECP (Earth Contact Product), so you know you are getting the latest technology in today's industry. We will stabilize, lift, and level your foundation by using:

Another sign of foundation failure is a sloping, uneven floor or sinking
concrete. Bay Area Underpinning can get your sloping, uneven floor or
sinking concrete back to its original level by using ECP underpinning
products such as helical piers, steel push piers, and slab piers. These
piers are driven deep into the ground through unstable soil until they
reach more stable soils then the weight of the structure is transferred
onto the piers, making it structurally sound and level again.

Eliminate Wet, Damp Crawl Spaces in Windsor
Not only can moisture be present in homes, it can also be in your crawl space. Crawl spaces are often ignored because they are out of sight. Wet crawl spaces can cause structural damages which can be very expensive to fix. There are many symptoms of moisture in your crawl space:
- Insect infestation
- Presence of rodents or small animals
- Musty odors in the living space
- Buckled or sagging floors
- Creaky floors
- Mold or mildew damage
- Rot in wooden framing
- Condensation on water pipes
The best alternative is to hire Bay Area Underpinning to install vapor barriers. Our vapor barriers are designed to block out water and vapors.
