Find a Permanent Solution to Your Foundation Settlement

You may be experiencing unlevel or sloped floors, cracks in your walls or doors sticking. These can all be signs of foundation settling. You are not alone as foundation settlement is a common problem in California.

What You Need to Know About Foundation Settlement

Foundation settling can be very frustrating, especially with the expansive soils found all around the Bay Area, as the active soils change with the seasons, heaving in the winter as the soil retains the water and then retracting in the summer as that water evaporates. Most residential foundations are constructed with shallow foundations leaving the home very susceptible to this ground movement.

A deep foundation system such as resistance piers/push piers, helical piers or concrete drilled piers are in most cases the best way to provide you a permanent solution to foundation settlement. They work by installing piers along your existing foundation extending down to bedrock or load bearing strata, ensuring your home’s foundation is supported on stable material.
