What we do
Our company is a member of MASTER BUILDERS, our membership number is 312 884.
The process of reinforcing the foundations of a building by replacing, straightening or adding stumps to give it better stability and durability is called Underpinning. With time, the foundations of a structure become weak because of material decay and shifts because of the movement of soil beneath the ground causing cracks in walls, misaligned doors, cracks in plasterboard, gaps beside windows and broken drains. While the problems can start out small, if it is left unchecked, faulty foundations can be the cause of major structural issues that can be very expensive to resolve and sometimes even lead to permanent damage.
WHY CHOOSE US
Many older weatherboard houses and some earlier solid brick and brick-veneer homes were built on timber stumps, which usually had a life span of up to 40 years.
Our professional house Re-stumping & Re-Blocking, leveling and underpinning services. With years of experience, we provide trusted structural support services for properties throughout Melbourne, working with residential and industrial clients to improve the stability of their buildings.
Offering free quotes and onsite visits, we can inspect your property and determine the work required, before replacing stumps or leveling your foundations for an affordable price.
WHAT IS UNDERPINNING IN CONSTRUCTION?
Occasionally, people use the words reblocking and concrete underpinning like they’re the same thing. But technically, this is incorrect. Both are forms of foundation repair in Melbourne, but they each use different methods. Reblocking involves replacing old wooden blocks with concrete ones that last longer. This is unlike building underpinning, where a building is put on jacks and already existing concrete stumps are reinforced and repaired by adding further concrete. Underpinning a house foundation is often necessary for brick veneer buildings that were built with concrete slabs. Even concrete slabs that are relatively long-lasting will need to be stabilized with extra concrete over time.
WHAT IS THE COST OF a House UNDERPINNING?
The greatest factor in underpinning foundation cost is the extent of the damage to the structure of your home. A structural engineer can do an assessment for you to determine this, or you could call us and ask for one of underpinning specialists to do an inspection of your property and determine the scope of required work. Other variables on underpinning costs in Melbourne include the likelihood of earthquakes where you live, the type of soil your house is built on, and the kind of underpinning used. For example, the resin injection underpinning cost could be different than the traditional underpinning cost.
SIGNS YOU NEED UNDERPINNING SERVICES IN MELBOURNE
Not sure if you need underpinning for a wall or other support to your home? Here are some tell-tale signs that you may need underpinning in Melbourne:
- Your walls are cracking
- Your floors aren’t level and appear uneven
- You live in a very old house
- Water is pooling around your home
- Pipes are cracking
- Your building is on a distinct lean
- Doors and windows aren’t functioning properly
- Your underpinning footings haven’t been inspected for a long time
METHODS OF UNDERPINNING THE FOUNDATIONS OF A BUILDING
When it comes to underpinning a house, there are various techniques that can be used. Here’s an overview of the major methods used by our underpinning company:
MASS CONCRETE UNDERPINNING
Underpinning a concrete slab using mass concrete underpinning is suitable in the case of heavy foundation loads and for shallow depth slab underpinning. Dirt below the house is removed in stages, and then concrete is added below the foundation. Mass concrete underpinning is also known as traditional underpinning, as it’s an older technique.
SCREW PILE UNDERPINNING
Screw pile underpinning, sometimes shortened to pile underpinning, uses tall piles that literally screw into the ground. The advantages of this method are that it requires minimal soil and home disturbance, as well as is cost-effective and long-lasting.
Polyurethane injection underpinning involves inserting expansive polyurethane resin into the ground which works to create a chemical reaction that expands and lifts houses, buildings and paving slabs. Expertise is necessary when using this method, as overuse of resin can lead to overexpansion.
