Underpinning is the process of reinforcing the foundations of a building to give it better stability and durability. With time, the foundation of a structure becomes weak and can also shift because of the movement of soil beneath the ground causing cracks in walls, jamming doors, cracks in plasterboard, gaps beside windows and broken drains. While the underpinning Altona problems can start out small, if it is left unchecked, faulty foundations can be the cause of major structural issues that can be very expensive to resolve and sometimes even irreversible.
To avoid escalating the problems and to correct the damage, well planned and executed underpinning Altonaprocessneeds to be implemented in order to stabilize the foundations and reduce damage. Sometimes, the underpinning Altona process also involves additional work like excavation, steel work, concreting and piling depending on the nature and cause of damage. It is also very important that the foundation of a building is strong enough to hold the structure steadily and evenly especially during construction or renovation for addition of storeys in the existing building.
