Does My Home Need Foundation Underpinning?
Foundation underpinning is a type of foundation repair that is used to deepen the foundation in order to circumvent sub-standard soil conditions.
When foundation underpinning is used as a method for foundation repair, the goal is to stop ongoing foundation settlement while strengthening the property’s existing foundation.
If you own a home in Southern California, it’s important to pay close attention to foundation settlement around your home.
On a minor scale, it can lead to small cracks and drainage issues. On a larger scale, it can create structural weaknesses and affect the structural integrity of the property – which creates major safety issues for all who reside there.
When small foundation issues and repairs go unchecked, this will often lead to an eventual total foundation replacement which can be much more costly and time consuming. Plus, severe foundation damage can greatly affect the property’s value and your ability to refinance if left unresolved.
Luckily, foundation underpinning is a cost-effective repair method for settlement — and it will only increase the value of your home.
The type of underpinning done depends on the location and the build of the property. A qualified foundation contractor will be able to assess this and determine the best type of underpinning to be used.
