If your building is appearing to sink into the ground or cracks are suddenly developing, if the building is being added on to, I.E. another floor, or an excavation is occurring on an adjacent lot, you need underpinning. Underpinning is a procedure used to strengthen an existing foundation that is beginning to fail or needs to be bolstered.
Underpinning is usually required when a structure is settling; When the foundation can no longer support the structure. Foundation underpinning will repair and strengthen the structure by adding additional vertical support, that extends deep into the ground. Pilings, placed beneath the foundation, allow the weight of the building to be transferred deeper into the soil where the ground is more solid.
