  • existing foundation has no footing

    Iam planning a renovation to my 45 year old bungallow which will entail adding a second story. The existing concrete foundation wall does not have a footing and frankly is not high enough to provide an adequate ceiling height in the basement. I am looking for suggestions as to how i may install a concrete footing under the existing concrete foundation wall in order to support the load of a second story?

    Hi Barry:
    I would begin by talking to an engineer to design and calc the project. There are many variables, and it's not a project to tackle if you haven't dealt with underpinning before.

    Hope this helps
