Listed in The Good Service Guide since 1992, Live Oak Structural is known throughout the East Bay for their environmentally friendly approach to pest control, structural repairs and for renovating and restoring wood decks, (see page 69).

“Most of the damage we see is water-related,” explains owner Terri Carver. “It might be wood rot, or foundation damage. Often a drainage solution is required to prevent the original problem from re-occurring.

“We look at the big picture and the best way to protect your home. As general contractors and structural experts, we have the expertise, the knowledge of local conditions, and if necessary we can bring in specialists from our network of professional contacts.

Live Oak Structural repairs and replaces foundations, and does seismic and structural upgrades. They drill piers for hillsides, and build retaining walls. They also design and install French drains and other systems to channel water away from the house and out to the street.

“We design thoughtful, durable solutions and build for the long term,” says Terri. “We have been in business here in the East Bay for 20 years, We have a reputation to maintain. People trust us. They know that we will not compromise on the quality of our work.”
