Due to the devastating earthquakes in Christchurch many of the older homes have had severe damage to the existing rubble foundations. These have left many dwellings requiring either partial or full foundation replacement. Is this the situation with your home? If so give us a call to discuss. Unless the land beneath your home requires remediation then these foundations can be replaced without the need to “high lift” your home. This saving on unnecessary cost and damage to your asset.
OF SLAB ON GRADE
Own a more modern home with a concrete floor? “Slab on grade levelling” is the term given for re-levelling the concrete floor of your home. House levellers uses a mechanical lifting system that has been used by the original company for over 20 years. This along with the development of our void filling grout pump and slab lifters allow House levellers to complete any levelling required to concrete slabbed dwellings.
WITH ‘JACK & PACK”
A term not so popular through bad media representation and contractor completion. The re-levelling of timber floors by packing off of the original piles if completed correctly is an affordable method of re-levelling timber flooring. Many older dwellings have either rock piles or old tins filled with concrete. As there is no building code to cover these House levellers will only replace them to the current building code unless specifically instructed to do otherwise.
