Foundation Repair

Permanent Solutions For Foundation Problems

San Diego homes and commercial buildings deal with a unique set of factors that can lead to settling, shifting, or sloping concrete. From seismic activity to weather conditions to the age of your property, a plethora of conditions can force your hand to call a professional.

Fortunately, Dalinghaus Construction has permanent solutions to all these problems and more. Our team has one objective during all our foundation repairs in the San Diego area: to permanently solve your issue and guarantee your home or building’s stability—all while providing exceptional customer service. We never settle for a less-than-perfect solution, so your property will never settle again.

Big Results Without Big Messes

We no longer live in a world where foundation repair has to disrupt your entire life. Instead of removing and completely replacing a broken slab, modern technology has made it possible to lift and level your home in a fraction of the time with a fraction of the mess.

Polyjacking uses an expanding polyurethane foam which, when applied beneath your foundation, can lift settled slabs back to their original placement. Dalinghaus is proud to serve San Diego with foundation repair services that are high-quality, fast-acting, and long lasting.

Signs and Symptoms

We inspect thousands of foundations each year, and we’ve become quite familiar with the signs and symptoms associated with a foundation that needs repair. These are some of the most common signs that we see in Southern California.

Learn More

  • Damaged Doors & Windows
    Sticking or hard to open/close doors and windows can be a sign that the frame has become out of square.
  • Tilting Chimneys or Fireplaces
    A leaning or tilted chimney tends to be a more noticeable foundation issue. It is also a very dangerous problem when your chimney tilts or leans, it can either fall in on your home, or the mortar can come loose and fall.
  • Uneven Floors or Cracks
    Cracks in your concrete floor slab can be a sign of foundation settlement. However, it may also be that the slab floor alone has settled. There are times when your slab floor may sink independently of the foundation walls, damaging the floors but not necessarily the walls.
  • Drywall Cracks
    Cracks in drywall throughout the house are one of the most common signs of foundation problems. Typical drywall cracks will appear around door frames and windows, in the ceiling, in corners, and along the wall. Drywall tape can be a good indicator, especially if it’s ripping or coming loose. Drywall cracks can also be a sign of sinking crawl space supports, sinking floors, or heaving floors.

Our Process

Repairing a home’s foundation can be complicated, but we make it simple for homeowners!

Step One

The first step is performing a foundation inspection. One of our knowledgeable inspectors will draw a scaled diagram of the home and take floor elevation measurements after thoroughly inspecting the property.

Step Two

We only move to step two if an issue with the foundationdation is found during the inspection. Our inspector will design a repair plan specific to the property and the issues facing it. They’ll then provide the homeowner with a scaled CAD drawing of the home, a full report on the findings, and a suggested repair plan based on those findings.

Step Three

Pull city permits and perform the repairs designed in the repair plan. The vast majority of foundation repair projects will involve the installation of push piers or helical piers to transfer the weight of the home away from incompetent clay soils.
