mini piling

Piling is laid to support a strong building structure. It involves the use of stakes to hold up the building’s height and weight, shifting the building’s load below the Earth’s surface.

The professional piling contractors ensure careful oversight of all the phases involved in the building process. They calculate the required depth and diameter of the piles based on the access issues and ground conditions to devise the most appropriate piling solution.

Southern Foundations Piling has expert piling contractors in Essex, creating piled foundations for various projects, including buildings, basements, house extensions, etc. Having years of experience, we have built a reputation for quality and trusted services.

  • If there is heavy seepage, and it is challenging to keep the foundation trenches dry.
  • If there is a seashore, riverbed, drainage system, or canal near your construction site.
  • If the water table is high.

Advantages of Piling Foundations

  • Piling foundations ensure structural stability against loads and natural disasters, such as earthquakes.
  • These foundations help weak ground soil to withstand the weight of heavy structures.
  • Mostly, people avoid construction in those lands which are prone to slides, but piling allows you to lay deep foundations even in such lands.
  • Piling foundation also goes well with the wet clay soil, making your constructions perfect and secure.

Promises We Make

Piling helps your building withstand the heavy load of the entire structure. It helps to strengthen the ground and foundations by stabilising your structure’s groundwork.

The structures built on weak soil are prone to cracks and other damages, putting the entire building in massive danger. Piling provides a solid foundation for buildings, making them durable and safe. It also ensures no future problems occur due to ground movement.

Professional piling contractors are certified and experienced and have all the knowledge related to modern techniques and strategies. Thus, they provide high-quality services to ensure the building structure’s safety.

A 3 x 7 m extension piling costs between £4,500 and £8,000.
