Weinstein Retrofitting Systems is a general contractor located in the San Fernando Valley specializing in foundation repair including foundation underpinning. We have performed foundation underpinning jobs for residential homes throughout Southern California. We work closely with outstanding geotechnical and civil structural engineers to ensure the proper installation of underpinning solutions for your foundation.
Foundation underpinning is needed to restore the load-bearing capacities of walls that have become weak over time due to settlement. Foundation underpinning adds support and stabilization where there has been a change of the structural configuration due to natural movement, shifting, or settlement, including any prior earthquake damages the home or building may have sustained. Weinstein Retrofitting Systems will assist in the design and installment of a complete foundation underpinning treatment. Contact us today for an appointment. Appointments for current homeowners are free of charge.
In construction, underpinning is the process of strengthening and stabilizing the foundation of an existing building or other structure.
There are a variety of reasons for foundation underpinning. In some cases the existing foundation has settled or shifted at certain points and in other cases the interior configuration has been changed, resulting in the removal or change of load-bearing walls. It should be noted that each foundation underpinning is unique and should be designed by a professional engineer. At Weinstein Retrofitting Systems, we can obtain the engineering necessary for your project and complete the repair.
