About riteway Underpinning is the process of strengthening and stabilizing the foundation of an existing building or other structure. It is is accomplished by extending the foundation in depth or in breadth so it either rests on a more supportive soil stratum or distributes its load across a greater area.

Underpinning may be necessary where P class (problem) soils in certain areas of the site are encountered.

Other reasons for underpinning being required at your house may include:

The original foundation is not strong or stable enough
The usage of the structure has changed
The properties of the soil supporting the foundation may have changed
Construction of nearby structures requires the excavation of surrounding soil
It is more economical to work on the present structures" foundation than to build a new one
