Our team was approached by a homeowner in North Perth following concerning discoveries in their home. Visible cracking in the walls had become evident, which upon closer investigation, was linked to deteriorated and in some areas entirely missing limestone footings.
To restore the structural integrity of the house by addressing the underlying issues of the compromised limestone footings and prevent further damages caused by soil settlement.
Scope of Work:
- Conduct a detailed on-site survey to determine the extent of the damage and identify all weak points.
- Employ specialised techniques to fill any voids created by the missing or collapsed footings. This process will involve using materials that provide both stability and compatibility with the existing structure.
- Employ industry-standard methods to strengthen the foundation, ensuring long-term stability.
- Implement underpinning solutions at various weak points, ensuring that the structure is evenly supported and risks of future soil settlement are minimised.
