Foundation Repair Services in Corte Madera
Our team of experts at Bay Area Underpinning has successfully completed over 2700 foundation repairs in Northern California. We know that foundation problems can cause stress and uncertainty so we are committed to making sure your foundation repair is as least stressful as possible. Not only will we make sure you understand the specific problem, we will show you how we are going to fix it.
It’s important to look out for signs of an un-level foundation before the problem gets worse. Are your doors and windows hard to open or close? Are your floors slightly sloped? If so you qualify for a foundation repair. We will fix this by using heavy duty steel push piers to life the foundation to where it was before.
Helical piers are shaped like spiral staircases, are very easy to install and less expensive than traditional concrete piers. This makes Helical Piers perfect for projects needing a deep foundation repair.
Concrete Piers are ideal if you are experiencing settlement problems like sloping floors, doors and windows that are difficult to open. This is common for homes that are situated on a hill, because soil underneath your foundation at the top of the hill eventually, over time, will make its way downhill. Concrete Piers will drill deep into the bedrock to stabilize the foundation.
Concrete sidewalks and other types of paths can sometimes sink due to soil movement going on underneath the slab. This has a variety of causes including problems with drainage, tree roots, and expansive soil. Sunken concrete walkways are both a safety and a liability issue, which is why they should be fixed and addressed immediately. To re-level the concrete we use a minimally-invasive procedure that involves injecting a special polyurethane foam under the slab.
At times, signs of foundation settlement might occur even though the foundation is sound. This could be caused by deteriorated screw jacks, or the settling of support posts in a crawl space. In this case, we will use the existing pier locks to remove / replace the screw jacks or post for the floor to be lifted up again.
Most foundations can repaired, although there are instances where it is more cost-effective to just replace the entire foundation. Our team at Bay Area Underpinning specializes in full and partial foundation replacements.
