Underpinning

Dermot Byrne Construction is an underpinning specialist contractor. Underpinning is the process of strengthening or repairing a building's foundations.

Underpinning is required if your foundations have become damaged or weakened in any way. Foundation cracks and other problems that aren’t repaired immediately may cause an assortment of structural problems for every aspect of your home and property. As time goes by your foundation leaks, the foundation will settle or sink and foundation cracks can steadily become worse and cause even more problems for the structural integrity of your home.

Problems that will require underpinning include:

  • Foundation cracks

  • Foundation crumbling

  • Water seepage

  • Wet basement

  • Wet crawl space

Foundation problems are very serious and you should have these looked at as soon as you notice any signs of potential issues. These signs include:

  • Cracking brick veneers

  • Leaky, moisture-filled basements

  • Collapsing or leaning chimneys

  • Bowing or buckling walls

  • Damp walls inside and outside of your home

  • Musty smells inside and outside your home

  • Damaged concrete steps at the front or back of your home

You may also need underpinning because:

  • The original foundation is not strong enough for the existing building.

  • The use of the structure has changed.

  • Subsidence has occurred through changes in the soil properties.

  • Nearby construction may necessitate the strengthening of the foundations.
