Foundation Repair Services in Alameda
We’ve been taking care of foundation problems in Alameda CA since 2005. To date, we’ve successfully repaired or replaced over 2700 foundations in Northern California. We offer…
Sloped floors, difficulty opening doors and windows, and wall cracks are all signs of an un-level foundation. We can use heavy duty steel push piers to lift and re-stabilize the foundation.
Spiral staircase-shaped (or corkscrew, if you prefer!) helical piers are great for projects that require a deep foundation. They’re both quick and easy to install, and they’re less expensive than traditional concrete piers.
If your home is situated on the side of a hill, it could be susceptible to foundation destabilization and lateral movement caused by soil creep. Concrete piers – drilled deep down into the bedrock – will resist this lateral movement.
Sunken, un-level concrete walkways – including sidewalks, pool decks, and driveways – are both a safety hazard and a liability issue. However, they can be easily lifted again using a minimally-invasive procedure known as slabjacking. This involves injecting a special foam under the slab in order to lift it back up. It’s a cost-effective alternative to replacing the concrete, and you can use the slab immediately after the repair is done.
Every once in awhile we find a home that’s showing signs of foundation trouble even though there’s nothing wrong with the foundation. This is what happens when either the screw jacks have gone bad, or when the supports in the crawl space have settled. We can fix this by using the existing pier locks, and then just removing/replacing the screw jacks or posts. The floor can then be lifted up again.
The good news is that your foundation can probably be repaired rather than replaced. However, sometimes – for a variety of reasons – a foundation repair just isn’t feasible. We do both full and partial foundation replacement.
