Underpinning strengthens the foundation of a faulty building or structure and may be necessary when you need to add upper levels to the structure or the building's use has changed. Signs that your building may need repair is when cracks wider than a quarter inch are visible. It stabilizes the building effectively and eases homeowner's concerns about living in buildings with severely damaged foundations. A common solution is the mass concrete pour method, a traditional method over 100 years old that pours concrete in designated containers underneath the existing foundation. The result creates another foundation to support the existing one overhead, and is typically used if the foundation is not deeply embedded in the ground. In order to determine if you require the service, you must obtain a document outlining the status of the soils underneath the rock base of your house. This way you will know whether the job requires an underpinning or another technique. Our company prides itself in getting the most laborious jobs done trouble- free and with over 32 years of experience in construction and repair, you can rest assured that we will get the job done right.
