What is Underpinning?

Subsidence underpinning is a construction task aimed to improve a building’s structural weaknesses by targeting the root of structural issues, the foundations beneath. It is the best solution for properties which have significant structural deficits or have been declared unsafe due to structural weaknesses. Therefore, subsidence underpinning is an ideal way of solving the problems that building subsidence unearths.

In the case of building subsidence, reworking your foundation can prevent the foundation from sinking further into the ground and stop further cracks appearing in and outside your property.

Depending on the level of service you’re looking for, subsidence underpinning comes in many different forms and with varying price tags. Each method can be used with different building types, different materials, and will also depend on the current foundation and its materials. When carrying out underpinning procedures on your property, it is important to note that you may require consent. Especially if foundational work is to be carried out near other properties.

Your Subsidence Underpinning Solution

Your property may need one of many different underpinning techniques to rectify the problem. The decision to choose the correct one will be made by the professionals, so make sure you hire a knowledgeable and experienced team. Here are the most common techniques accompanied by a brief explanation:

  • Mass Concrete – concrete boxes are placed strategically at points of weakness. This method is the oldest one and a tried-and-tested solution.
  • Beam and Base Underpinning – this method involves a concrete beam being strategically placed in the footings to take the building’s load at its weakest points.
  • Mini-Piled Underpinning – this method makes use of steel piles which have been chosen due to their capabilities to work under extreme tension and compression.
  • Resin Injection – the final one on our list is a bit different. It involves injecting structural resins into the foundation which expands due to a chemical reaction.
