If you live in Melbourne, you likely enjoy the beautiful area and climate. However, Australia’s unique architectural history and climate extremes can create specific problems for your home. Depending on when your home was built, what material it was made from and what and type of weather it’s had to endure, you might eventually need underpinning that restore your home’s foundation.
At Techniblock Pty Ltd, we have the experience to quickly, safely and successfully offer underpinning. We’ve been around since 1989, which means we’ve seen every type of foundation problem in the area. Trust us to correctly diagnose your home’s foundation problem and solve it quickly with our effective underpinning.
How Do You Know You Need Underpinning?
Weather and climate conditions like long periods of drought have a devastating effect on your home’s foundation. If you purchased a decades-old building that wasn’t well-maintained in the past, dry weather can affect the property’s foundation more than it does the newer homes in the area.
You can tell that your home’s foundation is starting to break down when you notice these signs:
- Crooked doors or windows that no longer close
- Cracks on your home’s exterior walls, including on brick walls
- Gaps near windows, doors or other entry points to your home
- Slanted floors, especially if your floors used to be smooth and straight
Underpinning will restore your foundation and return your home to its previous state.
How Does Underpinning Help?
When we arrive at your home, we’ll thoroughly evaluate it so we can decide on the best course of action. We then dig beneath your home’s footings to examine the foundation. We’ll replace the concrete or take any other necessary measures to re-stabilise your home. When we’re finished, your home will regain its original level and slant.
