Underpinning Melbourne

Underpinning is the process used to increase foundation depth, stabilise the footing, and repair faulty footings on double brick or brick veneer homes.
The process of underpinning requires a soil test and a structural engineer design and certification. To make the process as stress free as possible for you Southern Stumping and Underpinning will take care of obtaining all the necessary documents required.
You may require underpinning for a number of different reasons; The soil beneath your foundation my have washed away due to poor site drainage or leaking pipes. Tree roots can also play a major part in affecting and moving your homes foundations. Another common problem is the original foundation may have been of a lesser standard than is required today.

Why Restumping Melbourne

You may have heard about foundation repair projects where the family has to move out, or where the homeowner has to carry out renovation work of the floors and walls once the foundation has been underpinned. When you hire Pinpals for our expert ground engineering services, there is none of the moving out or renovating walls and floors after we have strengthened the concrete stumps. Our team of experienced contractors use state of the art tools to address the wear and tear of the stumps. We have moved on from the traditional method of inserting jacks underneath the house to repair the stumps. This method, though effective, involves much more work and inflated project costs. With our unique underpinning service, our clients can expect none of the excavation, dirt, or dust which is part of the traditional method.

We used Restumping Melbourne to underpin the concrete slab under our house in 2008 and have not had a single issue since. Thank you for the great job.

Restumping Melbourne came to the rescue when our house urgently needed repair. Our walls were cracked, doors not closing and the whole place had a lean which was affecting our sanity. Den from Restumping Melbourne was quick, affordable and efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend Den and the boys again.

I would recommend Den to anyone. He and his team went out of their way to ensure that I was happy with the work being done. I never had to worry about my home, as the team always made sure that it was kept secure and neat as a pin. Thanks to Restumping Melbourne!

The Restumping Melbourne team were so tidy! I could barely tell that the work was done, because they did such a good job cleaning up. Great team to work with, five stars.

WE TREAT YOUR HOME WITH THE SAME RESPECT THAT WE WOULD OUR OWN

  • Timber and brick supports can be re-engineered with quality steel and we use a wide range of common steel profiles to aid our effective solutions.

  • Steel is an effective barrier resisting damage from termites, fire and corrosion (when galvanised and installed properly).

  • Houses can be hydraulically raised to allow safe replacement of problematic failing supports. Concrete footings can also be replaced as and when required and couple this with an engineered telescopic replacement column. A problem that looks tough to repair can be turned around with these stage by stage steps.

  • All affected areas are zinc primed, and then top coated to seal off exposure to the elements.

  • Most supports are made to measure and are fabricated in our premises and then sent to industrial galvanisers for hot dip treatment to the inside and outside walls of all sections. 

FAQ

As far as the time and budget estimates are concerned, it depends from project to project. We complete most of our restumping and reblocking work within a week. The budget falls between 3,000 to 5,000 dollars.

Melbourne Restumping generally advises homeowners to vacate their premises while we work on the foundation. This allows us to carry out extensive work on the stumps without any concern of disturbing the family members. If a homeowner cannot arrange for temporary residence elsewhere, they can stay back. The only time when moving out of the home is mandatory is when the height between the floors and the stumps is less than 400 mm.

Our contractors try to keep the modifications to the structure of the house to a bare minimum. One area that can be affected is the wall plaster. However, if there is any damage to the plaster we undertake any painting or re-plastering work the wall may need. In some cases, if the floor boards need to be removed, we re-lay the floors once we complete the project, for no extra cost to our client.

You do not need to apply for any plans or permits for a restumping project. We take care of all the paperwork on your behalf before we begin work on the foundation stumps. A building approval may be needed, but that depends on the local council. If the council needs to approve the repair work then we present a certifier with the drafts of our plans. The certifier can then approve the plans on behalf of the council.

Since the entire structure of your house rests on the stumps, it should be the first thing that you should do before you proceed to renovate the walls, floors, and roofs of the house.
