Hillside Foundation Repair

Los Angeles property owners must keep their buildings extra secure with the ever-present threat of seismic activity. Since seismic activity is such an imminent threat on Los Angeles homes, it is even more urgent for hillside homes to take safety measures to ensure their structural endurance.

Because hillside homes are in a higher risk category, it is important that the homeowners will often inspect their property for any signs of deterioration of the foundation or any cracks around the house that can indicate damage. If you see any cracks, it is important to bring a professional to assess the situation and perform hillside foundation repair.

What is Hillside Foundation Repair?

In a house built on a very steep hillside, the basic seismic retrofit (bolting the house to the foundation and adding plywood to the cripple walls) is usually insufficient to withstand strong earthquake forces.

Each hillside earthquake retrofit is a unique situation and must be planned by a professional structural engineer.

The basic idea is to secure a house to its foundation, preventing it from detaching completely and sliding downhill.

Due to the home weighing down on itself, the foundation must be strong enough to support the entire structure. Securing a home of this kind can be a very costly process.

What Can Cause Damage To My Hillside House?

Poor drainage leads to shifting soil, and other issues that are common in Los Angeles County and Southern CA.

Slope repair and hillside repair are very important in maintaining the structural integrity of your property. Steep slopes, tension cracks, recent erosion, and massive vegetation of trees and tree roots may indicate a slope is in need of reinforcement.

This should be addressed promptly, before more serious shifts in the soil cause more severe damage. Ways to reinforce hillsides and slopes are Retaining Wall Installations, Concrete Slab Reinforcement, Drainage Systems, Erosion Control, and Caisson Foundation.
