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.
Reasons for lifting a house
Protection: In many cases, homeowners choose to raise their houses to prevent potential damage. Do you live in a wet climate or near a body of water? You may be at risk for flooding. Mold damage or rot could be another threat. Don’t ignore increasingly extreme weather conditions and changes in climate.
Damages: In some instances, the damage has already been done. Foundation problems occur more often than homeowners may think. Damage to your house’s foundation can be caused by many things such as changes in the underlying soil, severe weather conditions or natural disasters, or improper drainage. While this is one of the more unfortunate reasons for lifting a house, you should hire Underpinning Slab Foundations professional team.
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
