Piering and Underpinning
Usually when a foundation is weak what some of the homeowners do is they go with the piering option which is going to support the foundation. This type of method is generally expensive but not as much as building a new foundation, which usually means building a new house. So piering is done by the workers digging deep under your house to place piers for the support of the foundation and its lift. Once the piering is done, (usually eight to ten piers for the house), then the solution is considered permanent.

Most of the problems that homeowners who live in wet habitats are a moisture problem. Usually, the water from the ground is going to keep the foundation wet even from inside and make it look like you constantly put water on it when you didn’t. This happens when the drain tile is clogged and the water is going around the foundation having nowhere else to deposit. The way this can be fixed is by sealing the foundation with protective agents who are going to keep your foundation dry and the water outside.
