It should be noted that not all types of foundation damages can be repaired by underpinning, which is only necessary if the foundation cannot fully support the structure that rests upon it.
Weak and unstable soil is one of the most common factors that leads to unstable foundations, as it may weaken due to weathering or necessary excavations. Changes in the structure might also cause the foundation to lose its structural support.
While underpinning remedial work is intensive and involves some messy procedures, our years of experience at JHA Australia mean we leave almost no trace of our work process. This is the same even when working in small spaces, so if you spot the signs of structural instability, give us a call right away before the damage gets any worse.
It’s always important to establish the cause of the problem and to take remedial action, and JHA is ready to help if you need assistance.
