Here at Rhino Piling, we often find that property owners don’t recognise the importance of their own foundation and this lack of awareness can allow subtle movement, such as that involved in the onset of subsidence, to take place in the shadows overtime. It is crucial that both residential and industrial property owners know the signs of a failing foundation in order to consult the help of a licensed contractor sooner rather than later. The most common indications of foundational issues include:
- Warping window and door frames
- Diagonal cracks in the brickwork; thicker than a 10p coin and often wider at the top
- Crinkling wallpaper at joints in the wall
If you discover any of the problems listed above then time really is of the essence as they will only get progressively worse without professional intervention. Mini-piling is a residential foundational application that can be successfully utilised within existing builds in order to reinforce the foundation and prevent further subsidence from occurring. This is possible thanks to the utilisation of narrower piles that make them easier to transport and install in situations where headroom is quite restricted. In addition to this, mini-piling rigs are also significantly smaller and a lot less bulky than alternative options on the market.
When it comes to the foundation of your property, there are a variety of different factors to take into consideration before any work can begin in order to ascertain the suitableness of a particular approach. We often opt for mini-piling in order to restabilize the failing foundation of an existing build due to its versatility and effective installation process as there is nothing quite like it on the market that offers the same level of quality as traditional piling.
