The foundation of any building is one of the most crucial elements of its construction. A solid foundation can support a structure for years and prevent future problems, such as collapse. As a homeowner, there are many additions you can make on your property that will require a strong foundation, like a new patio, a deck, or even a wing or room on your house. A foundation requires a cleared lot and footings before concrete can be poured. Once the concrete is laid, it then needs to be sealed so that moisture cannot enter and affect the composition. If you need to add foundation to your home, then you should contact a professional to make sure common problems like cracking don't occur.

Best Underpinning Guide In Melbourne

Melbourne is a unique region of Australia with challenging weather conditions, a variety of soil types and other factors that impact coastal and inland ground conditions. In addition to extreme weather events, particularly torrential rain and storm activity, and extended periods of drought, Melbourne homes may be affected by the following causes of foundation problems:

  • Leaking pipes:

    over time, pipes under a property may deteriorate, become damaged or blocked, causing cracks which allow water to seep into the ground, both around and directly underneath the property. This is very common with clay pipes found in homes older than 20 years.  Leaky gutters and downpipes or dripping outdoor taps are also frequently identified as the source of water collecting near house foundations.

  • Poor building work:

    if there is insufficient ground preparation, including poorly compacted soil, before a house slab is laid, the ground may not be strong enough to support the load above. This is usually when house underpinning is considered, as well as other costly remediation works for fixing cracks in concrete surfaces, such as driveways.

  • Inadequate drainage:

    moisture management is key for good foundation and footing maintenance. If the soil does not have adequate drainage, water will collect causing the ground to weaken and potentially cause the home to subside or ‘sink’.

  • Adjacent development:

    when building or renovation works take place at a neighbouring property, earthmoving and excavation can impact the stability of the soil on your side of the fence. This is even more problematic when coinciding with periods of heavy rain which soften the ground and may lead to soil erosion and voids.  Equally, the clearing of trees associated with development can affect the water table as moisture is no longer drawn out of the soil by the tree’s roots.

Restumping Melbourne 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. Den from Restumping Melbourne was quick, affordable and efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend Den and the boys again.

House Foundation FAQ

The foundation or foundation walls your home rests on is determined by building codes and the location of the home. Other conditions such as the frost line, the soil composition, water levels and drainage can play into the type of foundation your home is built upon.

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.

Foundations are mostly constructed from strong material so they can hold the house in place even during earthquakes and cyclones. Therefore, they are generally made up of concrete which is the strongest construction material.
