Brick Piers and Brick Foundations

Almost all houses built before the 1980s were constructed on brick piers with a brick foundation embedded into the ground. Over time the mortar deteriorates and along with water seepage makes the bricks and mortar brittle and powdery causing the house to settle over time and sink in various places causing internal cracking, doors and windows jamming, creaking floors and uneven surfaces.

Houses can be approx 100 mm out of level without being visibly noticeable but it affects any internal renovation work to a substantial degree.

Renovating a house before relevelling…

Renovating a house before relevelling can cause all sorts of problems if you decide along the track to do total releveling and pier replacement works, if you had cracks before the renovation these will continue as well as continual sinking without first stabilzing the foundation first.

Pier replacement and house relevelling

Pier replacement and house relevelling can be relatively inexpensive but it is entirely subject to ease of access because if the house is very low access must be gained through the flooring inside.
