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

What is underpinning?

Foundation underpinning is the process of securing your home by reaching past the weakened soil your foundation is currently built on and installing helical piers. This method of foundation repair directly addresses problems caused by expansive soil or excessive moisture by transferring the weight of your foundation to soil that can support it. Underpinning methods like helical piers and slab piers transfer your home’s weight from surface soil to deeper, more stable soil.

How will underpinning help my foundation?

Underpinning methods help your foundation when your foundation starts settling due to unstable soil. Some underpinning methods involve stabilizing your foundation by pouring concrete into excavated sections underneath your foundation, but the more common methods involve installing helical or slab piers that reach deep into the earth. These methods are minimally disruptive so that you can maintain your routine while our expert staff performs the installation.
