Foundation underpinning is a popular process where the original foundation of an existing building is strengthened through a variety of different methods. If you’re planning on adding additional stories to your home, then underpinning is always suggested to reinforce support, but sometimes there are signs to look for that the existing foundation is losing strength. If you’re noticing cracks in the walls or floors or buckling walls, then it’s time to make the call and get these problems taken care of before they get out of hand.
The expert contractors at Troy Builders are here to bring years of experience and high quality underpinning work to your foundation so that your home can be prepared for any additions or so you can rest assured that your foundation is stable and sturdy.
The most popular method of underpinning is the mass pour technique where sections of a pre-established depth are cleared out and then filled in with concrete until the entire affected area has been underpinned.
The contractors at Troy Builders are also experienced with a variety of other methods and techniques to make sure that no matter the issue your home may have, we’re prepared to handle it with professional quality equipment and techniques.
While there may be a variety of ways that foundation underpinning can be done, there are standards that if not upheld, will lead to repeat work needing to be performed sooner than it should be. The most common reason for foundation underpinning is the foundation not being strong enough as a result of poor original work being performed.
