  • I've got a few cracks in my walls and a few doors are sticking, why bother getting this repaired now?

    The problem has the potential to only get worse and cost you more to repair in the long term.  Doing nothing has the potential to undermine the structural integrity and value of your house.
  • How much does it typically cost to underpin a house?

    Rectifying the problem early on will save you thousands of dollars. If treated early, the budget for an average 3 bedroom home is typically between $3,000 and $8,000
  • How long does the process take?

    Typically takes between 5 to 10 days to complete.
  • What should I look for when choosing an underpinning supplier?

    • Testimonials from their previous clients • Evidence of their insurance policies (beware some suppliers are not insured) • Evidence of their industry accreditation such as HIA or Master Builders • Evidence they are a Registered Builder • Find out who is actually going to do the work. Many suppliers sub contract out meaning they have less control over the job which makes it more risky for you
  • Do you offer a guarantee on your work?

    Yes, we offer a guarantee of 10 years
  • Why are some companies cheaper than you?

    Because they do things on the cheap - they outsource work to sub contractors, they might not have that much experience and they might not be insured. Would you want to put at risk your most valuable asset to save a few dollars?
  • Do I need to be at home when the work is done?

  • Do you clean up all the mess once the job has been completed?

    You bet!
