Underpinning involves installing piers or pilings beneath the foundation to support it and raise it back to its original level. Slabjacking is a process where a cement-based grout is injected beneath the foundation to fill voids and raise it back up.

Wall anchors are steel plates that are attached to the foundation walls and connected to anchor rods that are driven deep into the ground for additional support. Helical piers are steel shafts with helical blades that are screwed into the ground to provide additional support for the foundation.
