Foundation Underpinning

Foundation Underpinning IowaUnderpinning is the process of stabilizing and strengthening your foundation of an existing home or building. Our professionals use helical pier underpinning for a solution to your settling foundations in Western Iowa. Some reasons you may need helical underpinning are:

  • Your original foundation is not strong enough or is no longer stable (You’ve noticed wall cracks and bowing walls on your basement foundation walls.)
  • The load of your house has changed
  • Your soil properties under your home have changed
  • Construction nearby needs excavation of soil
  • Re-supporting your existing home or building instead of building new

With underpinning we extend the foundation depth or width so it rests on supportive soil. This will errantly stabilize your home and your home will not move. Getting past active soil and into bedrock will reduce the chances of your home settling or sinking.

Once we have installed underpinning beneath your home we may need to lift your home’s structure to its original designed elevation. Our trained foundation repair experts will do this in a delicate manner. Our hydraulic equipment will lift your home in a slow process that will give us precise control that is needed when doing a structural lift.
