How Can You Know Whether You Need Home Underpinning?

There are a few factors that should be taken into consideration before you should go for residential underpinning;

* Soil conditions
* Building height
* Cracks in the walls or floor
* Faulty foundations
* Uneven floors, doors, and windows
* Structural design requirements

Why Is Underpinning Necessary?

Underpinning is a construction technique in which new foundations are constructed beneath existing foundations. This improves the load-bearing capacity of an existing building. Plus, the underpinning process can also be considered when a building has slipped or cracked or when it is known that the foundations need a rebuild.

Residential underpinning can provide you with much safer and more secure homes. This is particularly the case if there are cracks in your foundations, which often appear as rectangles of crumbling brick or piers that have turned into semi-cylinders from the sheer pressure on them. It's also important to get this work done if your foundations are sinking under the strain of modern-day insulation methods, such as cavity walls with extra deep thermal cavities.

There Are Various Methods for Obtaining Underpinning


Screw-pile
Sometimes, all that is needed to raise your foundation are simple steel piers. This way, existing concrete footings can be used in conjunction with the piers to offer the existing foundation a sturdier and more stable soil on which to stand. If there are any cracks and gaps, then the building can be jacked up to its position in this process. 

Concrete footings
In this process, the underpinning specialists construct newer footings below the existing foundation, which leads to building stability.
