Underpinning is a method of construction that sees the depth of the foundations of a building being increased with concrete beneath the existing foundation.
The key sign that shows your house may need underpinning is cracks in the walls. These would then need to be monitored over a period of time to see if the cracks increase in size.
Normally, underpinning is required when the structure of the building moves, usually because the soil beneath the structure is no longer supporting the foundations.
C25 in strength is ideal for pouring foundations at a semi wet consistency.
