Welcome to San Diego Footing Repair, Inc.
Raised Foundation Repair
Most homes built before the 1950’s have a raised foundation that you can crawl under. They have a continuous concrete perimeter stemwall foundation and individual posts and piers that support girder beams. We can replace the old concrete with new 2500 psi, steel reinforced concrete that meet today’s standards. If the existing concrete stemwall is not too damaged, we can often repair minor cracking with high-strength epoxy, mortar, and/or steel straps.
If you have a cracked floor slab, depending on the severity of the crack, one type of repair is to inject high-strength epoxy into the cracks to seal them and provide a smooth surface so that your floor coverings can be installed on top without problems. Larger cracks can sometimes be reinforced with steel bars installed across the crack like “stitches”. The slab can also be removed and replaced completely with new 2500psi steel reinforced concrete, usually in conjunction with underpinning with small diameter pipe piles.
Steel Beam V-Brace
These homes have steel “V” braces for seismic restraint along the perimeter that can rust over time. The rust can travel up into the steel beams if left in place. We completely remove the rusted pieces and replace them with new, thicker stainless steel brackets that we have custom-made to match the originals’ configuration, but stronger. Permitting and engineering is included in our bids.
