As you know Underpinning is a method which is used to increase the foundation depth or you can say maintain foundations usually in a building and there are a variety of underpinning methods that can be employed to achieve this, including mass concrete underpinning, mini-piled underpinning, beam and base underpinning. Underpinning has many types and suits different kinds of repair projects. The main thing is that before the process of Underpinning it is necessary to understand the structure of the foundation the supports which are used, and the factors that cause the foundation to become damaged
Here we discuss some basic reasons which are necessary for Underpinning Process:-
- The important and basic reason is that when original foundation of the building is poorly constructed or your foundation became weaken. At that time Underpinning can strengthen your foundation and providing greater stability and ensuring that your foundation will last over time.
- When your soil properties are very poor this may cause your existing foundations and weaken it. This can lead to soil that is less suitable for the foundation of a building. When earthquakes, floods and other natural disasters are occurred then it will cause your foundation easily and that condition is very harmful for you.
- When your nearby structures or foundations are poorly constructed then it will affect your foundation too. So you will be very careful from that type of issues and repair them soon.
- Underpinning is often necessary when the usage of structure is going to change. When you reconstruct your foundation but your original foundation is old then in future you need to underpin your house.
