Interior Symptoms:

Uneven or sloping floor

As a foundation settles, so do the floor joists and the finished flooring above.

Cracks in floor

When concrete slabs often settle unevenly, large cracks are likely to form.

Cracks in interior wall

Interior wall cracks typically appear where walls are weakest: near doors and windows.

Inward bowing walls

Water-saturated soil can sometimes exert enough pressure to cause foundation walls to bow, bulge or tilt.

Sagging Crawl Space Repair in Southern California

Whether it’s poor footings or inadequate posts and beams, we can quickly jack your floors back to level.

Hard to open windows & door

When a floor sinks, openings become out of square, causing windows and doors to jam.


Exterior Symptoms:

Tilting Chimneys

A tilting chimney can be stabilized and returned to its original position without demolition.

Cracks in exterior wall

As a foundation is returned to its original level state, cracks will close and be ready for patching.

Street Creep

When street materials expand and push your driveway against your garage foundation, we can relieve the pressure!
