The Modern Alternative To Underpinning
Teretek® Resin Injection
Traditional underpinning involves digging deep holes adjacent to the footings, disturbing gardens and pavements; often taking weeks. Underpinning transfers the footing loads deeper into the ground.
When only underpinning part of the building footing in reactive clay, the resultant differential movement between the underpinned footings and the rest of the footings can cause cracks greater than the original damage the underpins were used to fix.
Teretek® Resin Injection improves the ground and strengthens weak ground beneath subsided footings. The Teretek® ground compaction does not require gardens to be dug up and most jobs are completed in one day. The Teretek® resin injection improves the ground beneath the cracked walls, and does not create the differential movement about the building that is caused by partial underpinning in reactive clay soil.
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.
