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.
Benefits of foundation underpinning: Stabilizing the foundations of your home is a complex task. Finding and repairing a damaged location is not an easy task because your base is under your property. It is necessary to consider not only what surrounds the foundation, but also the general condition of the building. Of course, small repairs can be covered with a simple DIY, but if the problem has affected a large part of your property, calling Underpinning Slab Foundations specialist can be of great help. Because of the simple installation process, basic support offers the following benefits:
Stabilize the foundation more than other options (for that range)
Galvanized steel parts have a long life because they are resistant to corrosion.
The installation process does not require the use of invasive equipment.
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
