    Underpinning Melbourne

    A misaligned window, a misaligned door, some cracks in the wall or flooring, and a sinking floor are some of the common symptoms of underpinning problems. If you see any of these signs in your home/office then call First Choice Underpinning immediately. We will send across our best team of experts to fix the issue at the most reasonable cost.

    Here is a glimpse of services that we offer at First Choice Underpinning Melbourne.

    Underpinning Services Melbourne

    At First Choice Underpinning Melbourne our aim is to make every building in Melbourne stronger, sturdier, and firmer and we do this by giving a solid foundation and a stable structure to each building. The strength of any building gets affected over time, especially if it is made of brick veneer walls and concrete slabs. Usually what happens is this – the alignment of the brick veneer loosens and causes cracks in the slabs. For best underpinning results we support the sinking or cracked slabs with heavy jacks and then use concrete for brick alignment. This enhances the strength and stability of the foundation.

    Salt Damp Removal Melbourne

    Did you know that moisture and salt can lead to fatal damages to any building? Yes, it can and it is known as salt damp. Salt damp is easily recognizable through gassy plaster, pungent odour, failing mortar, and bubbly paint. You can get exceptional salt damp removal solutions for domestic as well as commercial buildings at First Choice Underpinning Melbourne. We use plastic dampcourse in the building that protects the building from any salt damp in future. This dampcourse is used as the foundation to build the wall again. This simple process enables you to get the wall painted as soon as the plastic dampcourse is placed.

    Sinking Floor Solution

    Improper building construction leads to various issues, one of which is sinking floors. You can see the signs by looking at a flood from underneath (may be basement). If the floor feels like bowing in the middle then it is definitely sinking. This is known as trampoline effect. If you don’t feel sure, call our experts from First Choice Underpinning for a free consultation. Sagging beams and rotting joists can also cause a floor to sink. Just let us know and if there is a problem, our experts will solve it with safest solutions.

    Restumping or Reblocking Services Melbourne

    Restumping or reblocking refers to the same process. It is just like the process of underpinning with the only difference that in this case the stumps are replaced. We dig the foundation using jacks and replace the cracked stumps with new ones. In some cases, this leads to minor damages to walls or floors. But our professionals make sure to amend any such damages and complete the task before leaving.

    In re-leveling we actually lift that part of the structure that has faced differential settlement. This is done once the structure has been underpinned. We use hydraulic jacks to do so. After that we use a plastic packing system for supporting the floor so as to take to a new level. Releveling is required when the concrete stumps get settled. This is problematic because it can cause loose/uneven floors, cracks, or even jammed doors. Call First Choice Underpinning for free consultation.
