Piling & Underpinning
All structural foundations naturally settle over time, but in cases of excessive settlement or where the original foundation is not sufficiently strong or stable it may become necessary to shore up the foundation with piling or underpinning. Required base sizes and depths are dependent upon prevailing ground conditions. Our experienced technicians can perform an inspection to determine the extent of settlement and offer a solution that is right for you. We provide residential and commercial customers with piling and underpinning services. If your building’s foundation needs structural repairs, call us for a free estimate and project management details. You have several options available for piling, including micropiles, screw piles and push piles.
Micropiles for underpinning are used to crate foundations for transmission towers and highway foundations. Steel screw piles are anchoring systems efficiently screwed to the ground to meet engineered design load and settlement outcomes. Screw piles are used to build foundations. Push pile systems are driven hydraulically to provide support to structures in constricted areas.
Our underpinning and stabilization services save you money on installing a new foundation by enhancing load capacity or making the existing foundation stronger. Common uses for underpinning includes improving weak underlying soil, raising settled foundations and stabilizing sinkhole conditions.

Lifting & Underpinning
What appears to be a minor crack may be a more serious structural issue with your foundation. Our experienced professionals will troubleshoot, diagnose the problem and provide a solution. We are experts in lifting and underpinning. One visible sign that your home or building needs underpinning is through the appearance of cracks.
Lifting & Leveling
Properties that are experiencing foundation problems because of erosion, structural damage, poor exterior drainage, soil condition issues or other issues can sometimes begin to sink into the ground at one end of the property or another. This can be very dangerous, as the structure will eventually begin to shift and/or crack unless the problem is addressed.
At BC Concrete & Piling we can determine the cause of the foundation problem, correct it and professionally level the structure to provide many years of dependable service.
Sump Pump Systems
Your basement water problems may involve your sump and sump pump system. When operating correctly, your sump pump system will pump out the groundwater that is collected from your weeping tile or drainage material around the foundation. Whether you have a problem with your sump or weeping tile, our drainage and excavation professionals can help.
Problems with your weeping tile will result in excessive water around your foundation which may lead to leaks, cracks and other problems. Weeping tile is a drainage system installed around your home and located next to the footing of your foundation walls. When functioning properly, the weeping tile will drain water that accumulates at the base of your foundation and move it to the storm sewer or into your sump pump liner under the basement. BC Concrete & Piling offers excavation and weeping tile installation and repairs for properties throughout the Okanagan Valley.
BC Concrete & Piling has experience installing drain board as a damp-proofing layer that will help keep your basements dry.
We can help keep your Okanagan Valley property safe with effective mould control measures. We can use venting membranes, waterproofing, weeping tile and barriers to control moisture and keep your home mould free.
