What is underpinning a house?I was close to buying a house and discovered it had structural cracks. I have been told it needs to be underpinned. What is involved, how much will it cost?
The usage of the structure has changed.
The properties of the soil supporting the foundation may have changed (possibly through subsidence) or were mischaracterized during planning.
The construction of nearby structures necessitates the excavation of soil supporting existing foundations.
It is more economical, due to land price or otherwise, to work on the present structure’s foundation than to build a new one.
Underpinning is accomplished by extending the foundation in depth or in breadth so it either rests on more supportive soil stratum or distributes its load across a greater area. Use of micropiles  and jet grouting are common methods in underpinning. An alternative to underpinning is the weakening of the soil by the introduction of a grout. All of these processes are generally expensive and elaborate.
