A variety of very specific, very different and exacting foundation underpinning products and techniques can be customized and applied with engineering precision to your specific need. They may be used alone or in conjunction with grouting procedures, as recommended by a geotechnical engineer, to lift and stabilize “settled,” sunken, cracked, or otherwise damaged foundations. Learn about the primary types we use – steel pier underpinning and helical torque anchors –the advantages of ECP products, and what the underpinning process involves through links below.

So you know your Florida underpinning project will be done by the most experienced contractor with industry best products when you choose Foundation Services.
The actual products and procedures selected to repair your foundation and stabilize the soils beneath it will be determined by the soil type and condition, the structure’s size and weight, the amount and type of damage, and the accessibility and terrain conditions surrounding the underpinning project, combined with other geotechnical engineering factors. See an outline of a “typical” foundation underpinning process with ECP steel piers.
Your foundation damage may be caused by sinkhole activity, soil saturation from water drainage problems, shrinking and expanding clays from alternating drought and heavy rains, decomposing organic material, poor pre-construction soil preparation, improper land fill, and other weak and unstable soil conditions.
