What is underpinning?
Put simply, underpinning is the removal of soil from the main foundation areas of a building and replacing it with concrete. In more detail: underpinning is strengthening the structural integrity of a building, by laying a sturdy foundation below the existing ground level. One of the best ways to attain good results with underpinning is to extend your present foundation, making it even better and stronger. Extending the existing foundation allows the construction to stand on more accommodating soil, and evenly distributes the load of the building across the surface area.
Underpinning vs reblocking/restumping — what’s the difference?
Underpinning, restumping and reblocking are all processes which are related to the foundation stumps which support the above-ground structure of a house. So what’s the difference? The main difference between them is that while underpinning is about repairing the old, worn out concrete stumps with new material, restumping or reblocking is about replacing old stumps with completely new ones. Before commencing underpinning, we will examine your home to determine whether underpinning will achieve what is needed, or whether reblocking is a better option.
