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.
Home leveling is the process of lifting a home to a new location. For new homes, the slab is not assumed to be more than 1.5 inches outside the level. Once the house moves, the goal of leveling is to return the house to its state before it started moving. The majority of homeowners are almost unaware of slight differences in foundation height. Underpinning Slab Foundations experts will repair the foundation with reasonable tolerances.
All houses are built on a foundation. Over time, this base can sink, settle, crack, or rise. There are many reasons this can happen. Some common causes are soil problems, too much water, or a base that was not made right from the start.
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
