Brisbane House Restumping offer an underpinning service to Brisbane and Ipswich. Underpinning is a construction process of repairing or strengthening the foundations of an existing house or structure.
When Is Underpinning Needed?
Underpinning may be necessary for a range of different reasons including:
Leaking pipes and tree roots
The original foundation isn't strong enough
Natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods
Loose soil or uncompacted fill before construction
Queensland homes are known to experience foundation issues due to soils types and weather conditions. Rectifiying these issues is important and the signs that underpinning is needed include:
Cracks in brickwork or internal walls
Doors and windows jamming
Cracked wall tiles
Sinking slab or flooring
If you have any of the issues above and require underpinning we are here to help. We can arrange a site inspection and give you a quote for the repair.
Once the amount of damage that has occurred is identified, a structural engineering design to correct the damage will be needed. We work closely with a company that can arrange structural design plans and a soil test if it is required.
Then we will carry out the works. During this process, the pre-existing cracks and will be rectified by closing the gaps and structural integrity will be corrected however, some cosmetic repairs might still need to be carried out by a builder.
