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.
How is house leveling done by Underpinning Slab Foundations?
Pier and beam base leveling: We use a specific toolset. If there are a pier and beam base that secures the concrete or steel pile at a specific location below the beam around the concrete, the base can be leveled. The interior can be adjusted by removing or adding the top wedge of the inner pillar or pad.
Leveling concrete slabs: To level the foundation of a concrete slab, you need to dig certain areas of the house to make room for steel pipes, concrete piles, or concrete columns. The term slab or mud elevation is often confused with this type of repair. To minimize the possibility of soil inflammation, our professionals use soil injection.
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
