Other Services Offered by Bay Area Underpinning in Vacaville, CA
Are the floors in your home unlevel? If so, you need to have your foundation inspected by Bay Area Underpinning, the foundation repair experts in Vacaville, CA.
One of the most popular methods we use to repair a sinking foundation is foundation underpinning. In most cases, only a portion of the foundation is likely to have settled, which means it is sufficient to only work on the problem area. Resistance or helical piers will be installed along the foundation by making small excavations. The foundation will then be lifted and leveled with the help of a synchronized hydraulic lifting system.
Concrete slabs settle for various reasons, including poor drainage, poor compaction, and invasive tree roots. In Northern California, concrete slabs often settle due to clay-rich soil that expands and shrinks due to moisture. Fortunately, your sunken concrete slabs can be releveled using polyurethane foam injection – a simple, minimally-invasive procedure.
Small holes are drilled in the affected concrete, and then polyurethane foam is injected under the concrete slab via ports placed inside the drilled holes. The foam starts reacting, filling the void beneath the concrete and lifting the slab.
