The preferred solution for settlement is to deepen, or underpin the settling foundation down to a depth below the zone causing the problem. The choice of underpinning system depends on the specific conditions of the property.
Roll over the links below to view the typical underpinning applications on the right.
Note: "Active" underpinning can be loaded to relevel the home. "Passive" underpinning prevents further settlement but cannot relevel a home.
Depending on conditions, costs typically run $400 - $500 per linear foot of foundation underpinning.
