Foundation Repair

Our Bay Area foundation repair operations are comprehensive. We repair, lift, replace, and level all types of foundations.


Retaining Walls

It is often necessary to install a retaining wall to prevent soil movement.  Our team installs solid, well-designed retaining walls to prevent landslides, mudslides, and ultimately, foundation problems.


Proper drainage around homes is critical for stabilizing the soil and preventing damage to the foundation from excess water.  Your foundation is designed to be supported by dry soil, not wet soil. We design and install drainage systems and retaining walls, to keep your home safe and dry.


Our leveling services address uneven floors and misaligned structural components by restoring your foundation to its proper position, preventing further damage, enhancing the overall stability of your home and relieving stress on the structure so it will perform better during earthquakes.

Seismic Retrofit

Seismic retrofitting involves strengthening your existing foundation and structure to better absorb and distribute the energy generated by an earthquake. This reduces the risk of catastrophic failure, ensuring the safety of your home and family during a seismic event.


What People are Saying

I had Ward Construction remove and replace a failing retaining wall (6 foot exposure by 45 ft long) several years ago. Ward created the new design, drafted blueprints, arranged for the county permits and inspections, provided million dollar proof of insurance to East Bay Regional parks (we share a boundary with EBRPD) and managed all aspects of the project and sub-contractors. Over the years I've had numerous construction and renovation projects completed on several homes by various contractors. Ward Construction was the most professional and honest, easiest to deal with, most on-time, hardest working and most cost-effective contractor that I've worked with. At our final county inspection, the inspector measured everything against the permit documents, shook my hand and simply said "beautiful work". I can recommend Ward Construction without reservation.

Ward Construction installed a French Drain along the site of my house in late 2022, right before the epic rain in December/January. The drain worked, the basement is dry and I am very happy. His team was professional, fast and cleaned up well. I would recommend Ward Construction to anyone.

Ward Construction evaluated the repairs in detail and gave a thorough estimate for the project. They paid close attention to details on our tight schedule and made sure all aspects of the job were completed on time. I was always kept informed, and they were very fair when unexpected issues came up. I appreciated their professionalism and expertise throughout the process. Ward Construction is extremely knowledgeable and provided high quality work. I was extremely pleased with the end results. I would hire Ward Construction again for future needs.
