What is foundation underpinning?

Foundation underpinning is the process of transferring your home’s load (or weight) to stronger soil layers that are not affected my expansion and contraction. This is accomplished by pressing steel tubes called push piers down into the soil at the base of your foundation. Once the piers hit the required depth, they are bracketed to your foundation, and hydraulic jacks are then used to lift your home back to level.
