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.
Issues that required house leveling
Insufficient drainage: Extreme seasonal temperature fluctuations affect the base every year. This means that a dry season can cause major problems for the base due to soil absorption. To make matters worse, Texas soils are composed primarily of clay. This shrinkage can cause additional solutions, which can be harmful and require base repairs.
Tree roots: Trees are beautifully added to the home, but they can take very large amounts of water from the surrounding soil. This can cause the ground to shrink and the house to settle unnecessarily. When it rains again, the soil expands before the trees drain. This creates pressure and release cycles that can cause damage to the foundation. Underpinning Slab Foundations will help you to level your house.
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
