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 house lifting: Increased Home Value – Like the better views you’ll be enjoying, a side benefit of getting your home lifted is the fact that it will increase the value of your home, thus improving its long-term investment potential. Homes that are safer, better protected, and more likely to withstand the elements will enjoy greater popularity on the market, ensuring that every dollar you put into it will come back to you two or threefold.
New And Improved Foundation/Pilings – One of the key aspects of seeing a house lifting project through to completion is rebuilding a new foundation or driving new pilings. That means when you lift your home, you’re also upgrading the infrastructure. Fewer leaks, fewer drafts, and savings on your energy bill – all of these things and more may result. These are the main reasons to hire Underpinning Slab Foundations services.
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
