Our Foundation Repairs Services Bendigo

If you suspect your house is in need of underpinning, you need to have a professional underpinning Bendigo expert by your side. The team at Bendigo Restumping & Underpinning includes experienced professionals who identify structural issues with your structure, determine the extent of the damage, decipher if it needs underpinning or restumping, and then establish the best solution for your needs. 

Restumping

Houses before 1960s in Bendigo were built on timber stumps and are most likely to need restumping at some point of time. Restumping of a house involves repairing the foundation of a house that is built on stumps. Here, our specialists jack up your house and replace rotten or old stumps typically made of timber, with brand new stumps made of concrete for long-lasting durability. A lot of times restumping or reblocking may also involve replacing the sub-floor timbers and floorboards.

Underpinning

Underpinning is the technique used to rectify residential structures that have suffered from subsidence. When a property has moved due to subsidence, it needs proper support to prevent it from collapsing. Underpinning helps strengthen the foundation of properties if they have been weakened by subsidence or need repairs. During the underpinning process, the Bendigo Restumping & Underpinning team excavates as much as needed beneath the existing foundation. The excavated soil is then replaced with a new material such as concrete that forms a new foundation beneath the current one. Once the concrete is cured, the process is repeated on the other section of the foundation until the entire length of your structural wall is reinforced.

When is Restumping or Underpinning Required?

There are a number of reasons why your house may need restumping or underpinning. Most of the time, such repairs are related to subsidence problems. But securing your property early can help you avoid compromising the structural integrity of your entire property. Here are some more reasons why restumping or underpinning may be necessary –  

Depending on the condition of your house, our experts can narrow down the best solution for your situation. There are some key warning signs of foundation problems. Read on to know some common indicators that your property needs foundation repairs in Bendigo. 

Types of Underpinning in Bendigo

We offer a number of options to our clients in Bendigo. Our most conventional method is mass concreting, which has remained unchanged over centuries. In this method, our underpinning experts sign a box-shaped hole beneath the existing foundation of your house and then fill it with concrete. This method is used when the existing foundation of your property is shallow, but it can also be used in many other cases.

Our team also uses other types of mass concrete methods known as beam and base methods. In this process, our experts reinforce the concrete beam, which is built above or right below, or simply replace the entire footings. Here, the concrete beam will redirect the weight of the building over to different bases made of concrete placed in strategic locations.

Apart from these, we also use several other methods such as pile, beam, or mini-pile underpinning depending on our client’s needs. No matter what you need or how small your budget might be, we can offer it all under one roof.   

Concrete Underpinning vs. Resin Underpinning

Finding out that your property has a foundation problem can be daunting, and picking the best solution for it can be difficult. There are different methods of underpinning to improve the strength of your foundation. Our experts can help you decide the best method to strengthen your foundation.

Concrete underpinning is one of the most popular and still the most viable options for most homeowners when it comes to underpinning. It is a dependable and tested technique that most professionals today choose. While resin underpinning is a newer method that involves injecting resin material underneath the foundation. However, it has tons of drawbacks and might not be the most appropriate method for a number of situations.

If there is a giant gap that needs to be filled, resin underpinning can be quite costly. In addition, if the resin house underpinning Bendigo does not solve your foundation problem, the concrete underpinning will no longer be an option for you.

Apart from the underpinning or restumping itself, the cost will also include soil test, engineering report, and additional engineering. 

Yes, the quality underpinning will last for as long as your property. However, unforeseeable incidents such as poor installation, natural disasters, and unforeseeable incidents can shorten its lifespan.
