What is Underpinning
Reinforcing and fixing your foundation is a critical part of prolonging the life of your home and improving safety. Homes built in some parts of Sydney may experience ground instability and the foundation can sink leading to cracks on the walls or concrete slabs.
You might also notice the doors and windows don’t close. All these are signs that your foundation is growing weak. If not repaired, can result in extensive damage to the rest of the structure.
At Geotech Built, we have decades of experience offering underpinning Sydney services to improve the state of your foundation by placing pins of concrete under the moving building to stop farther movement and secure it.
Underpinning saves the cracks in your house
Cracks may have occurred due to differing reasons.
- Original foundations of the building is simply not strong, stable enough.
- The supporting soil may have changed its bearing capacity. For example water may have penetrated the area.
- New construction may require excavation close to the existing footings, thereby reducing their structural strength as a supporting agent.
- It is simply more economical to fix the existing then to build a new structure. For example, the floor slab of the house may have sunk 50 mm. Rather than rip it up and replace it. One can just hydraulically raise by jacking and underpin it with non shrink grout.
Underpinning is achieved by strengthening the bearing capacity of the soil by injecting grout, or by increasing the area of the footing itself or putting a mass concrete footings or combination concrete, steel structures under the existing footing. Micro piling is quite typical.

Thank you so much Restumping Melbourne. I bought stairs stringers and treads back in December. The house is nearly finished and they look great! The sales rep(whose name I have forgotten, sorry) worked out the cheapest freight to Melbourne.They are simple and look great!

Love using the product for my business, easy to install use and understand. Wouldn't consider going anywhere else for house stumps or stringers!!!!
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.
