The structure of your home is only as strong as its foundation. If there are any issues with the foundation, the walls and floors of the house will reflect that with hairline cracks and misaligned walls. These signs are an indication that the foundation needs to be strengthened.
Pinpals has been servicing homeowners in Melbourne for the last twenty years. We believe that the concrete foundation stumps is one of the most crucial elements that provide stability and support to your house. The foundation repair services that we offer is based on treating and strengthening the weakened underground stumps in an economical, efficient way, with minimal structural interference to the house.
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.
When you select us to strengthen the weakened foundation stumps, you can look forward to the following benefits:
Quick and Easy
Our contractors use a unique structural expanding material that can be injected into the worn out, cracked concrete stumps. This process can be completed with minimal invasion or excavation of the existing foundation. The contractors pierce tiny holes in the stumps that are around 16 mm in thickness to inject the material. Once the material seeps into the concrete stumps, it fills up cracks and strengthens the foundation. The new foundation then realigns the floors and walls of the house, providing additional support.
Clean and Budget Friendly
The underpinning material that Pinapls use is not toxic, does not react to any substances that may be found in the soil, and does not leave any carbon footprint on the environment. There is no trace of the concrete dust that is usually found in the old restructuring method. The result is that your family and house inhabits a clean, clear home even while we work on its foundation. Once the material expands, the misaligned walls and the uneven flooring are re-levelled. This allows lowered project costs, which results in substantial savings for our clients.
