Engineered Foundation Repair & Underpinning

Foundation Underpinning Contractor



Foundation Underpinning is necessary to provide structural support during nearby earthwork operations

Foundation Underpinning is a general term that can refer to both repairing a settling foundation and/or deepening one through conventional pit underpinning.  

Conventional Pit Underpinning is performed when a foundation needs to extend to deeper levels.  This is commonly done for shallow foundations where the earth needs to be excavated away, effectively removing frost protection from the foundation.  Potential situations for conventional pit underpinning include digging down next to a foundation to create a new access ramp or regrading to accommodate new site features.

Foundation Piles:  Stabilizing a sinking foundation can be achieved through the installation of a foundation pier/foundation piles. Common types of underpinning piers include:

  • Helical piles are advanced, or screwed, through the unsuitable soils and are anchored into the better soils below.
  • Resistance piles are jacked down using the building as a counterweight.
  • Drilled Micro-Piles can effectively drill through buried rocks and boulders.  This system is required for tough soil conditions. 
  • Wood pile repair can be required for buildings bearing on rotting pilings.
