Client Testimonials

Mark came out on time to provide a quote for a floor levelling and brick pier replacement work. He took his time to explain how the situation may have occurred and options to remedy. Certainly seems to know his stuff. Was able to talk about the modifications that were done to the house from what he was seeing in the foundations. We haven’t proceeded with the works yet, but I know where I’d be heading.

Mark and his team have done two projects at my house. They fixed the sinking floor and helped to fix a disaster project by another tradie. These guys are fantastic! Their quote is reasonable, always comes on time, does a great job and keeps the place clean after themselves. Very professional and experienced, give honest advice and suggest the best approach. I am very happy with the results and will gladly work with them again.

Thanks to Mark & his team for an extremely professional job!!
We were really impressed (as were our neighbours) at the level of care taken especially with regard to access, the tricky nature of the site and for the clean up afterwards. They definitely live up to their name and we would have no hesitation in recommending A1 Underpinning.

Underpinning Sydney FAQs

What is underpinning?

Underpinning is the process of strengthening and stabilising the foundation of an existing structure. This is done by installing supporting materials, such as steel or concrete, underneath the original foundation. Underpinning can be used to repair foundations that have been damaged or weakened over time, or to increase the load-bearing capacity of a foundation so that it can support a new or heavier structure.

Why underpinning is required to a structure?

– To repair a foundation that has been damaged by erosion, water damage, or settlement
– To stabilise a foundation that is showing signs of movement or instability
– To increase the load-bearing capacity of a foundation so that it can support a new or heavier structure

Why is underpinning necessary?

Underpinning is necessary when the existing foundation of a structure is not strong or stable enough to support the weight of the additional structure being built on top of it.

The underpinning process involves installing new, stronger support foundations beneath the existing ones to provide a solid base for the new construction. This is often done by excavating beneath the existing foundation and pouring new concrete footings or piers.

Underpinning is also sometimes necessary when a structure is being renovated or repaired. If the foundations are not in good condition, they may need to be strengthened or replaced in order to support the weight of the structure during the renovation process. In some cases, underpinning may also be necessary to stabilize a foundation that has been damaged by flooding or other natural disasters.

If you’re considering adding an addition to your home or office, or undertaking a major renovation, it’s important to consult with a structural engineer to determine if underpinning will be necessary. The engineer will be able to assess the condition of the existing foundation and determine the best course of action to ensure that the new construction is safe and stable.

How much does underpinning cost?

The cost of underpinning will vary depending on the size and condition of the existing foundation, the type of supporting materials used, and the extent of the work required. However, as a general rule, underpinning can cost anywhere from $5000 to $100,000+.

How long does underpinning take?

The length of time required for underpinning will vary depending on the size and condition of the existing foundation, the type of supporting materials used, and the extent of the work required. However, as a general rule, underpinning can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks to complete.

What are the benefits of underpinning?

Underpinning can strengthen and stabilise an existing foundation, which can repair damage, prevent further damage, and increase the load-bearing capacity of the foundation.

  • Cracks in the walls, floors or corners of your building
  • Windows and doors wont closed
  • Floors or foundations are sinking
  • Cracks on your bricks are pretty obvious
  • Gaps around door frames are becoming obvious
  • Cracks are evident in the wall and floor tiles
  • Doors are jammed
  • Floors are bouncy

While problems aforementioned may start as an inconvenience, unstable foundations can quickly result in expensive structural damage to your home.

With professional house underpinning, you can rest assured that your home is levelled correctly with stable foundations.

If you think you have unstable, damaged or compromised foundations get in touch with the experts at A1 Underpinning – we’re expert house underpinning and foundation repair specialists in Sydney.

If a foundation is not repaired or stabilised, it may continue to experience damage or movement. This can lead to cracks in walls and floors, doors and windows that won’t close properly, and furniture that appears to be tilted or leaning. In severe cases, a foundation that is not repaired can collapse, resulting in serious damage to the structure above it.

One potential drawback of underpinning is that it can be disruptive to the occupants of a structure while the work is being done. In some cases, it may be necessary to temporarily relocate residents or businesses while the work is being carried out.

Additionally, underpinning can be a complex and expensive process, so it is important to consult with a structural engineer or foundation specialist to determine if it is the best option for your situation.
