Understanding Foundation Underpinning

Foundation underpinning involves extending the depth or breadth of an existing foundation to provide additional support and prevent further settlement. This may be necessary when the original foundation is inadequate or has been compromised by soil movement, poor construction practices, or other factors. Underpinning techniques vary depending on the specific needs of the structure and may include methods such as:

Traditional Underpinning: Excavating soil beneath the existing foundation and pouring concrete or installing steel supports to increase foundation depth and stability.

Helical Piers: Helical piers are installed beneath the foundation to transfer the weight of the structure to more stable soil layers and prevent further settlement.

Push Piers: This method involves driving steel piers into the ground beneath the foundation to provide additional support and lift the structure back to its original position.

Slab Jacking: Injecting grout or other materials beneath the foundation to lift and level settled or uneven sections.

Common Reasons for Foundation Underpinning

Foundation underpinning may be necessary for a variety of reasons, including:

Foundation Settlement: Uneven settling of the foundation due to soil movement, poor drainage, or other factors.

Structural Damage: Cracks, bowing walls, or other signs of structural instability indicate the need for additional support.

Building Modifications: Adding additional stories or heavy loads to an existing structure, requiring reinforcement of the foundation. This support helps carry the increased weight.
