01

REPILING
 

Repiling is the replacement of rotted or defective piles and/or concrete footings, which can cause structural damage to your home. Repiling may include a complete re-levelling of the floor area, which can require the replacement of subfloor timber, floorboards and the readjustment of the house ( very important when renovating ).

02

UNDERPINNING

 

Underpinning is the restrengthening of footings under brick walls to ensure that the homes feet are stabilised. Concrete Slab Foundation Repair (Underpinning) is the process of installing drilled or solid concrete re-enforced foundations to repair and stenghthen any failed foundations. When the new concrete foundations/pillars have hardened the home can then be specially leveled to an independent engineers specifications where required, doors will become unjammed and windows will un-stick and the home will not move any further.
