Underpin Your Foundation on Stable Strata.
The most frequently necessary foundation repair solution is called underpinning, or piering. Underpinning becomes necessary when a foundation, resting on unstable soil, settles or sinks. Foundations are normally built to evenly support the pressure caused by the weight of the structure, but after sinking or settling, that weight is frequently shifted and unevenly distributed. That causes cracking, bending, or breaking in the foundation or the structural elements of the building. Plus, additional settling is always a possibility as long as the soil is unstable.
Underpinning is the process by which the weight of the building is shifted to more stable strata far deeper in the ground. This is done by drilling large steel piers deep into the ground until it reaches a stable point. Then, the piers are securely attached to the outside of the foundation. As a result, the foundation is re-leveled, and the weight of the structure is evenly distributed and supported by the stability deep within the earth.
