Foundation Repair Process Strengthens and Stabilizes Foundations
LOS ANGELES – Julian Construction, a Los Angeles based construction company that specializes in foundation repair and construction, today announced the availability of foundation underpinning services to stabilize building foundations and support second-story home additions.
“Underpinning is a highly specialized construction tecnhnique that requires either professional engineering or architectural design ,”says Julian De La Torre, founder of Julian Construction. “Our underpinning services cover the entire process, from planning to completing the repair.”
Underpinning involves increasing the depth or width of a building’s foundation by removing the soil beneath or to the side of the foundation, and replacing it with foundation material. It is used to strengthen a building’s existing foundation when a second-story has been added, or other modifications have taken place that effect wall load capacities. The technique also addresses and resolves problems associated with foundation settlement. Because of the many technical aspects of the process and to avoid further foundation damage, underpinning requires professional planning and execution.

Founder and retrofit expert Julian, along with his partner Shawn Kyles, an expert in foundation repair and house bolting, have retrofitted more than 6,600 homes, apartments and commercial properties since the early 1990s.
