Let’s discuss how underpinning can help secure your foundation:

What is underpinning?

Foundation underpinning supports your home when helical piers are installed in the weak soil under your foundation, reaching into the strong, unused soil. This foundation repair technique addresses issues caused by expansive soil or excessive soil moisture by shifting the weight of your house off of weak soil using helical piers or slab piers in order to find stable soil that can support your house.

How will underpinning help my foundation?

Underpinning helps your foundation when it starts to settle because it sits on insufficient soil. Some underpinning techniques include leveling your foundation by emptying concrete into dug-out areas below your foundation. However, more common strategies involve installing helical or slab piers that reach into the ground. All of these techniques can be done with minimal interruption so you can stick to your regular schedule while our team completes the installation.
