What Is Underpinning?, Louisville, Kentucky

Underpinning is essential to an existing structure’s stability. The goal of underpinning a property is to provide a strong foundation on which it can rest. In many cases, the original foundation simply isn’t powerful enough to support the structure, either due to low-quality workmanship or decayed wood. Unhealthy soil conditions can also damage the foundation and make it necessary to underpin the property for security.
