What is foundation underpinning?

foundation underpinning with steel push piersWhen the soil under a foundation isn’t able to properly support it, settlement happens and the foundation can become uneven. At that point you’ll start to notice problems like uneven floors, and doors and windows that are difficult to open and close.

Foundation underpinning uses heavy duty steel piers to transfer the building’s weight to soil that can support it. This involves installing the piers deep down into load-bearing soil under your foundation. Once they’re in place hydraulic jacks lift the foundation back up.
