UNDERPINNING

Our method is used to increase foundation depth or repairing faulty foundations.

 

This might be the case if you plan to add stories to an existing structure or when the foundation has been damaged.

 

One visible sign that your building needs underpinning is when cracks are visible.

This is common in properties of Victorian and Edwardian designs, because its a stepped cobble foundation. As this kind of foundations were normally constructed in London weather conditions, it is common to get soft and when the foundation dries it becomes brittle. 

 

K.C.J. professional team are experienced and the building need underpinning on its foundation when cracks are wider than ¼ inch and there are some signs of a faulty foundation, especially diagonal cracks.
