Underpinning in Melbourne: How it Works

At its core, underpinning is designed to restore structural integrity to your home. As a technical process, it requires specialised knowledge, operational efficiency, and careful execution. Our Melbourne underpinning process involves the strengthening of existing foundations, which is achieved by installing reinforced steel poles and high-quality concrete supports in key areas.

The underpinning methods we use, such as screw piling, directly address issues related to soil erosion, changes in the weight of the structure, and poor construction that can impact a building’s foundation over time.

Once on site, we conduct a thorough investigation of your soil and foundation to determine the best solution. This provides vital information that can be used to create a viable long-term solution. If you need professional underpinning for a Melbourne home or businesses, call 03 9102 1452 now.

The Signs Your Melbourne Home Needs Underpinning

Knowing when your home requires underpinning is integral to prevent further damage and reduce the repair costs. Signs like uneven floors, widening gaps under doors, gaps appearing around window frames, and doors that are difficult to open or close can be indicators that your home’s foundation is compromised. If you are experiencing any of these problems in your Melbourne home, it might be time to organise an underpinning service.

From underpinning to restumping or house levelling in Melbourne, we are always ready to lend a helping hand. Reach out to us today to arrange a site visit.

What Is the Cause of Foundation Problems?

A property’s foundations can be destabilised for a number of reasons, and foundation problems can affect both residential and commercial properties. The first signs of poor foundations include stuck doors and small cracks in the wall, but these signs will only get worse over time.

The most common cause of foundation problems is a change in the soil supporting your foundations. The soil may have expanded or contracted due to moisture, or it may have been disrupted due to nearby construction or natural disasters. In other cases, the soil your foundations were built on was inadequate to begin with and foundation problems are just beginning to show themselves. The presence of trees, foundation design, and renovation or extension work can also play a role in the failure of foundations.

At Vic Metro Underpinning & Restumping, we offer a range of trustworthy services to reinforce, relevel, or replace your failing or destabilised foundations. Contact us today to learn more.

Vicmetrounderpinning wall cracks and subsidence fix Vicmetrounderpinning were outstanding from Eadie as co-ordinator, Joe as Structural engineer to Jordan/Joe the underpinning technicians and Damien doing wall cracks. I couldnt speak highly enough about the way they went about their business from quote, communications, fulfillment and even billing/invoicing). All trade services should aspire to be like these guys (these guys went above my high expectations).

The Vicmetrounderpinning customer service team is highly commended for their prompt response to my enquiry. Their assessor, Joe was pleasant to deal with and thorough with his assessment. Damien, the Technical Team Lead, whom did the repairs was pleasant to work with. He was very thorough and happily accommodated a little extra repair work which we pointed out to him later. At completion of work, he tidied up and removed all debris for disposal. The repair was done in November 2022, and we are completely pleased with the outcome. Thank you Vicmetrounderpinning.

I never have given a review on services or products in the past, but i feel compelled to provide one for this very professional company. From the initial dealings with Joe to the underpinning performed by Jordan and Jack and then followed by the Damp proofing injection performed by Damien, where all were extremely professional, caring and all took time to explain the process. In an era where mediocracies in trades is a norm, it is a breath of fresh air to know that there is still companies like Vicmetrounderpinning out there.
