Renowned as professional groundwork and drainage contractors, we bring more than 35 years of experience to excavation, reinforced basements and underpinning projects in the Sunningdale area.


What is Underpinning?


Underpinning strengthens a foundation which is no longer considered stable or of a high quality. Excavating at increments at a time, a professional team of groundwork contractors will work to protect the property from further damage and subsidence. With deeper footings and firm, survivable materials, the structure will then be enhanced for future use and protected in the longer term.


There are various ways to underpin a building, such as through traditional or ‘mass concrete’ underpinning, beam and base underpinning and via the use of structural resins, to name just a few.


When is Underpinning Necessary?


Whether you own a home or commercial premises in the Sunningdale area, underpinning may be needed to enhance the condition of the original foundations. It may also prove necessary when the purpose of the building has changed, to increase load-bearing capacity or to stabilise footings and soils.


The key warning signs of subsidence include:


  • Large cracks in the ceilings, walls and floors
  • Trapped or difficult doors and windows
  • A noticeable slope throughout the property
  • Rippled wallpaper, with no signs of water damage
