Foundation Repair

Home > Foundation Repair

A strong foundation is the cornerstone of any building’s stability. Even with the best design, time and various environmental factors can compromise the integrity of your home’s foundation. At Able Reblocking, we specialise in restoring and reinforcing foundations to ensure your home remains secure and stable for years to come.

Understanding Foundation Issues

Over time, the weight bearing down on your home’s stumps can cause them to sink, leading to a sagging structure. This is especially true for older homes or those with timber stumps, which can rot and deteriorate. Moisture in the ground further exacerbates this issue, making it critical to address foundation problems promptly.

Common Causes of Foundation Damage

Foundations can be affected by several factors, including:

  • Age: Natural wear and tear over the years.
  • Moisture: Water damage from leaks or poor drainage.
  • Vegetation: Tree roots disrupting foundation stability.
  • Renovations: Structural changes impacting foundation integrity.
  • Seasonal Changes: Expansion and contraction due to weather variations.
  • Vibration: Nearby construction or heavy traffic causing shifts.

Signs Your Foundation Needs Repair

Recognising the early signs of foundation problems can save you from extensive damage and costly repairs. Be on the lookout for:

  • Doors that do not close correctly or creak.
  • Cracks in plaster, brickwork, or tiles.
  • Sloping or uneven floors.
  • Rotten or weakened stumps.
  • Separation at the roofline corners.
  • Difficult-to-lock doors and windows.
  • Cracks around the perimeter of the house slab.
