Underpinning can be done in one of two ways: one, improve the foundation system by enlarging the existing foundations or adding new foundations, and two, to improve the properties of the soil below the foundations without touching the building at all.
Leveling the house keeps your family safe, enhances your home’s appeal, avoids costly structural damage, and eliminates small inconveniences caused by irregular bases.
If the house foundation is not flat, the floor can start to sink, become significantly uneven, or sink into the ground. If you notice that these changes are taking place in your home, it is time to recruit Underpinning Slab Foundations experts.
If the irregular foundation is neglected, other problems will begin to occur throughout the house. Small inconveniences, such as windows not close properly and doors not opening properly indicate that the foundation needs to be leveled. There are endless reasons to level the base, from family security to home appeal and preventing costly structural damage.
Why is Underpinning Necessary?
There is a variety of reasons why underpinning might need to be carried out. These are usually related to subsidence issues. Some examples of why underpinning might be necessary are:
- A change in soil conditions under the foundation.
- Soil characteristics were not properly taken into account during the design phase.
- The original foundation is no longer suitable/strong enough.
- The construction/repair/excavation of neighboring structures endangers the current foundations.
- Additional floors are to be constructed underground
