Underpinning in Dorset and beyond involves strengthening the foundations of an existing structure, whether that’s a residential property, a commercial premises or other structure. The work usually involves deepening the existing foundation or taking steps to distribute the building’s load across a wider area. It’s a major project, but with the right team on board, it can be done safely and efficiently, strengthening the structure for many years to come.
When Might Underpinning Be Required?
In many instances, underpinning is the way to tackle issues related to subsidence. There are a number of reasons why this might be necessary. Perhaps the original foundations were not constructed properly, or the type of soil on which the property was built was not taken into account when the building was first erected. Soil conditions beneath the existing foundations could have changed over time.
Another factor might be if neighbouring structures have subsequently been built, renovated or excavated, and this has affected your property’s foundations. And finally, if you are adding a basement to your home or business premises, underpinning might be needed to reinforce the existing foundations.
