A house foundation is the load-bearing portion of the structure, typically built below ground. The foundation you choose boils down to personal preference and budget.

Although foundations have been made from a number of materials — stone, block and even treated wood — reinforced concrete is used in the vast majority of new homes. The contractor erects wooden forms, installs steel reinforcing bars (“rebar”) between the form faces, then fills the forms with poured concrete.

  • Why do foundations fail?

    The movement of earth beneath foundations is usually caused by settlement or expanding and contracting clay. When dry conditions prevail the earth consistently loses moisture and shrinks. When moisture levels are high the earth soils swells.

  • What are the causes of subsidence?

    One of the main reasons for underpinning foundations is subsidence, which can be caused by a number of different factors: damaged and leaking drains, poor drainage or even no drainage, traffic vibrations, ineffective ground preparation prior to laying the foundations, nearby groundwork or constructions, inadequate foundations, natural compaction of the soil, sinkholes and underground mining.

  • Why do you need foundation repairs?

    Investing in a professional foundation repair is a commitment, but it’s essential to the integrity of the building and resale value. External indications that subsidence is becoming a problem include cracked brickwork, gaps between the brickwork and the window edges, cracked brick piers, gaps in the joins or mitre joints of structural arches, as well as balconies. Internally, you might see cracks in the Gyprock, sloping floors, cracked cornices, jammed doors and windows, cracked floor and walls tiles, and even cracked slabs.

Flexible House Foundation Solutions

Homes can cater to any budget, from small units to industrial projects, anywhere in Victoria.

Home foundations serve as the essential floor that a house rests on. The ground beneath us moves often and can stretch a home beyond its limits due to the fact that the ground does not move uniformly and at the same time. A home foundation not only works to keep the house level and still, but also insulate the home - keeping the moisture out, and the warmth in. Another important reason for a house foundation is to keep it level. For example, if a house is on a hill, or uneven terrain, a perfectly flat house foundation will allow the home to sit level, and not have you roll out of bed at night because your house sits at a 45º angle. The foundation of a house ensures that your stays where it is and maintains it's structure.

From the moment of organising for a quote to the time of receiving the call that it was all done it has been such a seamless, VERY efficient and stress free process.  Nick was always on time, managed to squeeze me in before Christmas, his team of workers were very hard working, kept me informed along the way, charged me a very reasonable price and the final invoice was exactly what was quoted - no hidden fees.  All I needed to do was sign the paperwork, give him the keys and the rest Nick organised and completed as promised and ahead of time.  Thanks so much to Nick and the team for the great work and for making this stress free for me!  I hope you have a Merry Christmas too!

Screwpiling came to the rescue when our house urgently needed repair. Our walls were cracked, doors not closing and the whole place had a lean which was affecting our sanity. Sam from Restumping Melbourne was quick, affordable and efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend Sam and the boys again.

Screw Pilling was an extremely professional and pleasant service to deal with. He did an excellent job of our restumping with a minimum of fuss and no stress for us. He was always prepared to go the extra yard to help. Our house was leveled with no cracking and is now extremely sound. I would highly recommend Nick for anyone needing an excellent tradesman to restump their house

I was so impressed with Nick's professional manner, the pride in his family's business and "nothing is too much trouble" attitude. Nick was referred to me by friends who had just completed a huge reno - they could not speak more highly of him. From the time I called Nick, he was promptly at our home to access the situation - a continual nagging squeak in the floor boards - not a large job - he was so obliging and it was fixed in no time. He also offered us advise on another problem we had with flooring in another area of the home.  I work in the real estate industry, advising & referring vendors to trades to prepare their home for sale - I will not hesitate & have complete confidence in referring Nick and his company Hawkins Reblocking to friends & clients. Life is a dream without that nagging squeak - thanks Nick." McKinnon Restumping and Reblocking Services.

Slab – The Most Popular Foundation Type

About half of all new homes built in the U.S. are built on a slab foundations. Because a slab is by far the most cost-effective choice, customers flock to this budget-friendly option.

The first question that comes to mind is, can a house collapse from foundation issues? The answer is yes, however, it is also not that simple. It can take years to develop a serious foundational issue that would cause your home to collapse. In most cases, if it does, it's concentrated on a specific area of the home.

Top 6 Signs of Foundation Problems
  • Diagonal Cracks on Interior Walls.
  • Exterior Stair Step Brick Cracks.
  • Doors Sticking or Not Latching.
  • Gapping or Separation of Exterior Trim.
  • Movement of Wood Trim/Built-Ins.
  • Evidence of Movement on Other Inside Fixtures.

Some minor settlement is normal. Old houses usually have settled as much as they ever will, unless there is some other cause, such as erosion, causing it. It does happen, though.

The most common causes of cracking are: Ground movement (beneath foundations) caused by clay shrinkage, land slip, vibration, subsidence, settlement, heave, sway, and so on. Foundation failure due to the decay of soft clay brick, concrete erosion due to chemical contaminants, and so on.
