Underpinning, also referred to as basement lowering, is the process of improving the foundation of an existing home. Foundations are enhanced through stabilization and strengthening. Most homeowners request underpinning to increase the size of the basement, essentially to make the space more liveable. The most common other reasons are due to the original foundation not being strong or stable enough or because the home has changed structurally.
How Underpinning Works
Underpinning is achieved by extending the depth of the foundation so that it either distributes the structure’s load across a greater area or rests on more supportive soil. The whole process requires a professional understanding of how the structure is currently supporting the load and how that load can be better supported using professional methods.
