  • Underpinning is the process of strengthening and stablising the foundation of existing residential and commercial properties. This is done when these properties show signs of structural movement or the existing foundation is no longer strong and stable enough due to overtime soil changes. Reasons for an underpinning
  • Leaking pipes
  • Poor drainage
  • Tree root damage
  • Dry soil or evaporation
  • Wet soil
  • We will exceed your expectations when dealing with you and your home ensuring your property is resting on a safe and stable foundation. We understand your needs when it comes to a home. You want to live in a safe and stable home and we can guarantee that. We will provide you with building and engineer permits. We are registered with Housing Industry Association (HIA) & Building Practitioner Membership. We come in and inspect the house, and if you have the signs needing underpinning, we will call an engineer to come out and complete a soil test and identify the depth and size of the pins. Then they will draw a plan instructing us how many pins are needed. After this short process is completed we then start by digging under the existing foundation to the required measurements according to our engineer’s plans. We will complete the job like no other. If you feel like you want know more, please contact us and we will inspect your home, give you a free quote or just give you the advice you need.
    Re-blocking/Re-stumping

    Red gum/ timber stumps have a lifespan of up to 30 years and require replacing after this time due to rotting and sinking. We can replace your existing timber/ red gum stumps with solid concrete stumps that can withstand the test of time.

    It is the process of resetting and re-levelling the house. As qualified professionals, we highly recommend this is the first step in house renovations. We remove old stumps and dig following the Victorian building regulations to insert new concrete stumps to give your home the solid foundation.

    The most common reasons that this process is needed includes:
  • Movement in soil
  • Weather changes
  • Leaking pipes
  • Poor drainage
  • Dry soil or evaporation
  • Wet soil
  • Signs that you should look for include:
  • Misaligned doors or windows
  • Cracks on the plaster or bricks
  • Uneven floors or sloping floors
  • Bouncy floors
  • Noisy floors
  • Don’t wait! Call now to prevent further damage which may cost you more, later. We will inspect your home, give you a free quote or just give you the advice you need.

    Levelling
    Levelling is process where we raise the floor and walls of your property to ensure that your home is sitting evenly. Your home may be sitting on concrete stumps or brick piers but can still move and become unleveled overtime. We use the latest and most accurate technology to determine the level of flooring in your home. Our equipment can pick up any faults in the foundation of your home where we will help strengthen. We raise the floor and/or walls to one level by “jack & pack” or “lift & pack”- lifting the floor and packing with plastic packers. The material we use is a high quality engineered plastic for packing and aligning. We use hydraulic jacks to lift the floors and/or walls judging by our computer level that determines how many mm exactly we need to raise or drop. We then add the packers between the bearers and the stumps.
    Signs that you need levelling:
    • Misaligned doors or windows
    • Cracks on the plaster or bricks
    • Uneven floors or sloping floors
    • Bouncy floors
    • Noisy floors
