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.
Many people faced the possibility of damaged concrete foundations due to the possible presence of natural iron sulfide, pyrite at the concrete base. Here are some solutions used by the Underpinning Slab Foundations team.
Encapsulation of vapor barrier and tracking space: By installing a moisture barrier or summarize the drag space, you can prevent moisture from acute the base wall. The installation of moisture barriers prevents mold and fungus formation, maximizes basement and crawl space, and prevents water vapor from passing through the foundation walls.
Internal, external, and surface drainage: A good water management system helps keep the water low and keep it away from the base. This contributes significantly to a sound foundation.
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
