Problems we solve

Is Your Hobart Home Showing Signs of Subsidence?

Cracked Walls

Do hairline cracks appear in your walls, particularly around doorways or windows? These cracks can worsen over time and become a structural concern.

Sinking Floors

Uneven floors are another telltale sign of subsidence. This can manifest as noticeable dips in specific areas or doors and windows that suddenly stick or become difficult to open.

Jammed Windows & Doors

These issues can arise due to foundation movement caused by subsidence.

Unlevel Building

Over time, subsidence can cause your entire property to become noticeably unlevel. This can be particularly evident on sloping sites or by observing leaning chimneys

All of these signs point to potential subsidence problems

If you’re experiencing any of these issues, you must address them promptly to prevent further damage to your property.

That’s where Mainmark comes in.  We offer a site inspection by one of our qualified experts.  They’ll thoroughly assess your property, identify the cause of the problem, and recommend the most suitable repair solution for your specific needs.

Traditional Underpinning vs Resin Injection Solution

House Underpinning

The traditional method

Excavation – Heavy machinery is required to dig large holes to depths often up to 3 metres.
Soil removal – large quantities of dirt and rock are loaded onto dump trucks and transported away from the site
Pouring Concrete– filling the holes or “piers” with concrete can be complex and logistically challenging depending on the site.
Curing time – concrete can take several days to get to strength.

House Resin Injection

The modern alternative

Tiny holes– Teretek is applied through keyholes, typically 6mm to 16mm in diameter.
Clean and quiet – The process is clean and quiet, has minimal impact on residents.
Resin injection – The resin injects into the ground and expands in the ground within minutes.
Curing time – 30 minutes. You can even use the building during the process.

Tasmania Underpinning Frequently Asked Questions
What is underpinning?

Underpinning is the process of extending the foundation of a building to a deeper layer of soil. This is traditionally done by digging deep holes under the footing and filling the hole with concrete.

What are the alternatives to underpinning a house?

The main alternatives to traditional underpinning are resin injection and screw piles.

Resin injection strengthens the soil beneath the footing by compacting the ground. Screw piles extend the footings to a deeper layer of soil.

What is the cheapest method of underpinning a foundation?

The cost to underpin a footing can vary significantly, and depends on the method adopted, soil condition, accessibility to the failed footing and proximity of other buildings and pavements to the work area.

Traditional underpinning is labour intensive and involves large excavations, so its price does depend on how busy the contractor is. Resin Injection and screw piling have more stable prices.

How much does the underpinning cost?

Traditional underpins vary from $1000 to $4500 per underpin for shallow underpins.

Deeper underpins are more expensive as each excavation requires shoring to make the hole safe.

How much does resin injection underpinning cost?

Resin injection typically costs in the range of $1100 to $1400 per linear meter of the footing to be supported.

How long does it take to underpin a house?

Traditional underpinning required digging holes next to the footing and then filling them with concrete.

The excavation of the holes can take some time and will impact gardens and paths as they will be removed.

Traditional underpinning could take a few days for a single underpin to several weeks.

How long does underpinning last?

Concrete underpins if well-constructed using sound concrete should last more than 50 years.

Is resin injection as good as underpinning?

Resin injection is different to underpinning.

Resin injection involves strengthening the ground beneath the footing, whereas underpinning involves extending the footing to a deeper layer of soil.

What are the dangers of underpinning?

There are several pitfalls when using concrete underpins.

In reactive clay soils, if only part of the footing is underpinned then there will be differential seasonal movement between the underpinned sections of the footing and the rest of the footings.

This difference in seasonal movement will result in large cracks forming in the walls adjacent to the areas that have been underpinned.

Another problem that arises with traditional underpinning is poorly compacted soil adjacent to the underpin acts as a water path to the underside of the underpin and can undermine the underpin.
