What is foundation underpinning?

foundation underpinning with steel push piersSometimes, soil isn’t able to adequately support a foundation. This can cause settlement as the foundation slowly sinks into the weak soil and becomes uneven. When this happens you’ll start to notice uneven floors, trouble opening doors and windows, etc.

Foundation underpinning takes the weight of the building and transfers it to soil that is able to properly support it. Steel piers are drilled into the soil under the foundation until they reach the load-bearing strata. After they’re in place, hydraulic jacks raise the foundation back up.
