Underpinning

Underpinning

Strengthen your home and have more space to enjoy

The procedure of underpinning is used to restore or reinforce an existing home or structure. Before beginning underpinning, contractors must first dig up the dirt beneath the foundation. However, the excavated soils are relocated in phases rather than all at once to avoid structural issues. The entire procedure should be carried out by specialists since even little errors might lead to tragedy. Structural engineers must determine how much dirt should be dug before reaching stable soil. One layer of dirt will be removed during the underpinning process, replaced with an underpinning material, and only then will the next layer be removed. This procedure is continued until the desired level of stability is reached.

Unfortunately, many homeowners overlook their foundation when performing regular house maintenance and there is no sturdy home without a stable foundation. While concerns like a leaking roof, draughty windows, broken faucets, or clogged gutters are visible and get our attention fast, foundation issues can be buried and difficult to discover, growing over time. Even worse, foundation difficulties can lead to a slew of additional concerns. Cracks in foundation walls, for example, might attract mice or encourage termites into your home. Moisture in your house can lead to mould growth and possibly raise your power bill since your heating and cooling systems must run for longer periods of time than usual.

 

How do we perform the underpinning in your home?

In order to create living space, the foundation may need to be strengthened, which necessitates a proper underpinning procedure. The necessity for this procedure might arise when the qualities of the soil supporting the foundation change. There are situations when the soil stability was mischaracterized during the structure’s construction, requiring the homeowners to reinforce the sinking foundation. Furthermore, if the homeowners decide to extend their home and add another story, they must first reinforce the foundation; otherwise, the entire house’s structural stability may be jeopardized.
