Concrete leveling for your Los Angeles, CA property
Sunken concrete turned this driveway into a tripping hazard.
When your foundation isn't the problem, sunken concrete slabs around your property are often at fault for causing cracks and tripping hazards. Not only does sinking concrete create danger for visitors to your property, but it also doesn't look particularly attractive. Using the PolyLevel® method, Saber Foundation Repair can perform concrete lifting and leveling services that will make your patio, sidewalk, warehouse floor, airport, runway, driveway, pool deck, or garage floor as good as new!
PolyLevel® is a polyurethane foam injected into the ground beneath a concrete slab. This strong foam expands, lifting concrete back to its original position. PolyLevel® is lightweight and environment-friendly, meaning it won't create any complications down the line!
Along with our foundation repair and concrete lifting services, we can also help with a variety of other needs, including seawall and bulkhead repair. To get started on any of your home's needs, contact Saber Foundation Repair today! We serve customers in Los Angeles, CA and throughout the surrounding areas.
Homeowner Michael G. in Los Angeles, CA had a major issue with his crawl space. He moved into his freshly remodeled home five months ago and right away starting noticing a problem. There was a smell that was getting worse and worse. To find the source of the problem Project Design Specialist Jason S. went into the crawl space and found that there were very high levels of humidity which was causing mold and allowing too much moisture into the wood. To make this project further, Bryan and his team first removed all debris from the crawl space and installed the Cleanspace service which includes: Drainage matting, vapor barrio, an energy-efficient Aprilaire dehumidifier, a condensate pump, and a SaniDRY dehumidifier. After Bryan and his team finished the installation, Michael was thrilled with the professionalism and quality of work we have done on his home. Now he doesn’t have to be bothered with a musty and gross crawl space.

Saber received a call from a homeowner experiencing water drainage problems. The water in his backyard wouldn't drain properly due to an underground spring. Puddles kept building in the yard near his neighbor's yard.
Upon arrival with his team, foreman, Angel Morales, saw that puddles were building up near a wall in the yard. Lots of mud and water had built up. In order to fix the problem, french drains were installed against the neighbor's wall, where most of the standing water was. The drain was connected to a preexisting drain in order to redirect the water into the street.
Saber helped this property by ridding it of puddling water by directing through the main drain into the street.
Daniel A, homeowner in Los Angeles called Saber to work hand in hand with the structural engineer to repair and support the pier and beam structure of his raised foundation "Crawl Space" home.
Engineer drawings called out for (15) Smart Jack girder supports as well as the removal and replacement of a failing grider. The Smart Jack system was chosen for its engineered fill base and capacity of the entire install unit.
The Smart Jack system is a great support solution to mitigate against active clay soils under your home or to replace old and rotten timber supports.
The home was also further supported by installing 9 push piers around the property to raise the foundation back to level. The home was sill plate bolted and nine existing posts were restated to add support.
Homeowners in Los Angeles, were looking for ways to make their home more energy efficient and to keep moisture out of their homes crawlspace. After spending many hours researching the different ways to resolve their issues, they found that Saber and the CleanSpace encapsulation installed be Saber was the best option for them. CleanSpace encapsulation is a 20 mil thick plastic liner, similar to a pool liner that can be fitted in your crawlspace to completely seal off your home from the earth. The material is incredibly durable, will last as long as the home, and will stay in place. Not only does CleanSpace make the homes crawlspace moisture free, and makes the home more energy efficient it also adds space for storage. The Saber CleanSpace installation crew was scheduled to complete the project, they arrived at the site and went right to work. The crew installed 418sqft of CleanSpace to the homes crawlspace area. The process to install the CleanSpace began with the a dimpled polyethylene membrane under the CleanSpace liner which allows for water to flow to a sump in the crawlspace, once this is installed, the lining is then attached to the walls with fasteners that are permanently driven into the walls. The Saber crew worked diligently to complete the crawlspace. The homeowners can now not only enjoy the energy efficiency of the CleanSpace, but also the added benefits: CleanSpace has an antimicrobial additive manufactured into the material, which prevents mold growth on the liner. This additive is odorless and safe.
Customer Olivia M, of Somis, California, and her husband purchased their 1980’s home a year prior, fully knowing it had foundation settlement issues. Researching the available options, Olivia determined that Saber had the best online reviews and would be the best company to evaluate the property. Subject site is a single story home supported by a slab on grade foundation. Noticeable cracking in the foundation and flooring tile was evident as well as the floor was determined to be out of level. Upon inspection, Saber’s Project Specialist, Joe J. proposed to install 12 hydraulically driven steel Push Piers at 6’ intervals along the affected area to stabilize and lift the home back to it's original elevation.
Saber’s Foreman Trevar A and his crew completed the Push Pier installation in three days and performed lifting and leveling on the fourth day, followed by Polyurethane injection. Polyurethane was utilized to fill voids under the slab that were created during the lifting phase, further permanently supporting the foundation.
Another happy customer! Olivia was very pleased with the work completed. It is safe to say, she now has piece of mind knowing that the foundation of her home is stable.
In Los Angeles, California, Saber Foundations was contracted to complete a job on a structure that had suffered from severe foundation settlement. During the initial inspection it was also recommend that the property be retro-fitted with vertical and horizontal “I” beams. The settlement that was occurring on this structure was most likely due to the shifting in the supporting soils beneath the foundation. Using Foundation Supportworks, Inc, Push Piers made of steel and including a set of helical blades in the lower section of the pier, these are known as Helical Piers. Soil is removed from around the foundation footing for proper pier placement. Helical pier systems create a solid supporting base that transfers the weight of a structure downwards to strong supporting soils. These piers are mechanically advanced into the soil using small construction equipment or hand equipment. As they are installed to appropriate depths and capacities, they prevent any future settlement from occurring. Once the proper depths are achieved, heavy duty steel foundation brackets are positioned below and against the foundation footing. The weight of the structure is then transferred through the helical piers to deep, competent soils. Lifting the structure back towards its original position is then attempted. Then, the soil around the foundation is carefully replaced.
During this installation, because of the size of the building and the length of the walls, 100 helical piers were installed to the exterior and interior of of the property. These piers worked together to transfer the weight of the structure to the strong soils or bedrock below. After installation, the owner will notice that any signs of the soils shifting will no longer be an issue. This property was also retro-fitted with vertical and horizontal steel “I” beams. This process involves the installation of engineered metal connectors and other reinforcement materials at key stress points throughout the properties structure. The goal of the retrofitting process is to counteract three main earthquake-induced forces that can cause major damage to a building. Saber’s experienced crew utilized the vertical and horizontal “I” beams to keep the properties structure together in spite of any seismic force that could easily tear an un-reinforced property apart. The owner is not content with the fact that the property is once again stable and has been reinforced in the event of another earthquake, which in California is inevitable.
Customer Mari D, of Long Beach, California, had been considering reinforcing her property, and with the string of recent earthquakes in and around the Los Angeles area, she found that now was a better time then any. So, Mari did her research and found that Saber was the best company to come evaluate her property. Upon the inspection, the Sales representative from Saber proposed to install Simpson UFP 10 brackets at every corner of the foundation and every 6' from the center, as well as strapping each 4x4 post to each existing wood grinder beam, using Simpson T-straps and Simpson framing clips. There was also a crack in the slab that was a concern to Mari, therefore; it was suggested that the crack be routed, cleaned and repaired using a two component epoxy injection method.
Mari found that this was the best option for her, so she scheduled to have a crew from Saber repair the crack in her slab and retro fit her property. The crew was able to complete the project in the first day. They began by going into the crawlspace where the work would be preformed, and installed and secured the T-straps, they then installed and secured the sill plates and repaired the crack with epoxy.
Mari was very pleased with the work completed. It is safe to say, she now has piece of mind knowing that in the occurrence of the next earthquake in her area, her home has been safely secured.
