STRUCTURAL REPAIR IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

Underpinning is not only applicable to residential homes, it can be used for commercial projects. The same reasons for foundation failure in homes are often found in commercial structures. Foundation settling and sinking can be caused by expanding or contracting soil, poor soil conditions, and poorly compacted soils. Regardless of what is causing a settling foundation, it can damage a building's structure and compromise its value. Matthews Structural Solutions offers a complete line of underpinning methods for existing and new construction applications in the District of Columbia. We repair settling foundations, sinking floors, leaning or bowing walls, cracking walls, and other structural issues.
