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?

adminIn construction, underpinning is the process of strengthening and stabilizing the foundation of an existing building or other structure. Underpinning may be necessary for a variety of reasons:The original foundation is simply not strong or stable enough.
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 [1] 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.

adminUnderpinning means to support something from below, for example with props or a foundation. It is commonly used to describe any knowledge that is foundational (basic or the most simply required) for a specific area of work or study………I recommend you to see —-> Http://www.besthomegarden.infounderpinning in my experience doesn’t actually do anything to strengthen the house by doing it after the house was built. It’s more for cosmetics and to keeps animals and such out from under the house.
I hope that will resolve your problem,

It probably is derived from architecture where the foundation of a structure is the underpinning.
