Abbey Pynford’s house underpinning service provides property owners with a high level of personal service, care and consideration during all stages of the work.
An underpinning system is one that transfers the load of a structure to a suitable bearing stratum below ground, while taking into account the possible effects of ground heave, subsidence or negative skin friction that may be imposed upon the system.
Abbey Pynford offer a full range of house underpinning systems, this ensures our proposed solution will be the most appropriate and cost effective to suit your property’s individual circumstances. We place great value in our reputation both with our clients and in the wider marketplace. When you work with Abbey Pynford we promise that our commitment to you will remain the same regardless of the size of your project.
Ultimately, the success of any project is determined by the quality of personnel undertaking the site work. This is particularly the case with underpinning as, once completed, the works are very quickly covered with back-filled spoil. Local authority engineers and/or other external supervisory organisations are rarely able to check all of the works before they are covered up.
We employ the highest level of on-site supervision in the UK underpinning industry. We rely on our highly trained crews to produce high-quality work on-site, but we also put in place many checks to ensure consistently high standards of workmanship are achieved. We place particular emphasis on careful crew selection, crew training and a graded supervisory regime to suit each crew. Most importantly the pride of our crews in being the best in the business gives our customers the secure knowledge that our work will always be completed to the highest standards.
Proper, well backed, guarantees are essential when selecting a house underpinning contractor.The most comprehensive and customer-focused guarantee available within the industry is that issued by The Association of Specialist Underpinning Contractors (ASUC). This guarantee is insurance-backed and its validity is independent of the issuing contractor. The guarantee remains in force for a period of 12 years from completion of works and covers design, workmanship and any associated building works undertaken.
