Our experts keep your home in great condition by spreading the weight across a large surface area. Skilled in underpinning, we also resolve any problems with existing builds.
Without house foundations from a professional team of groundwork contractors, even the smallest home would sink into the soil or collapse altogether. Working in Orpington, Bromley, Sevenoaks and the nearby areas, we install the following types:
Raft or Mat Foundations – This is essentially a large slab of concrete which lies beneath the property. Great for poor soil conditions, including peat and clay, raft foundations get their name from behaving like a raft on which the house stands. Raft foundations also have a lower contact pressure than other methods.
Strip Foundations – Commonly used for soils which prove suitably load-bearing, strip foundations involve laying concrete around the perimeter of the home. Our groundwork contractors can lay wide house foundations as needed and install the best option no matter the depth required.
Trench-Fill Foundations – This type of foundation involves excavating a large trench, which is then filled with concrete. Trench-fill house foundations don’t need large-scale excavation or any brickwork at all. For this reason, Ace Underpinning Ltd may suggest this foundation type for new builds in areas with a high water table or loose soil.
Aside from new house foundations in Orpington, Bromley, Sevenoaks and Kent, our groundwork contractors can also restore stability to your home through a process known as underpinning. We keep disruption to a minimum and always comply with health and safety standards.
