Ward Construction provides services in the greater San Francisco Bay Area- specifically Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin and Solano counties.

Here’s an example of the type of services provided:

We will construct 4 drilled piers and haunches along the left side of your garage, and 2 hand dug bench piers along the right side of your home. The depth of the piers along the left side is estimated at 15 feet, and 5 feet along the right. We will then lift your existing foundations off of the new piers as much as we can to make the floors of your home more level.  To correct the problem of water flowing beneath your rear foundation to the sub-area sump, there are 2 solutions. The best solution is to install an intercept drain along the rear of your home, (not including the garage), and the left side. The depth of the system will be a minimum 16 inches below the rear foundation, where the water appears to be originating. The system will discharge through a 4 inch solid pipe a cross your front yard and through the curb to the street. We will remove and replace the rear deck boards as necessary, and cold-patch the curb.

Complete specifications will be included in the contract for the work.

The second option, is to install a 10 feet long drain, centered at the rear foundation where the water originates. This system will need a sump to discharge the water into the existing downspout drain. We will remove and replace the rear deck boards as necessary, and install a door through the deck in the area of the sump. This system although less expensive, is also less reliable due to the need for electricity and a mechanical device. Replace the left side concrete walk as necessary.
