Residential & commercial construction repairs & construction services


As foundation repair specialists, Adept provides both remedial Residential & Commercial Construction Services from the Central Coast and the suburbs of Sydney.

Adept’s services include residential and commercial foundation repairs, specialising in home underpinning and commercial building underpinning – repairs that are often needed, due to a variety of reasons.

•    Residential or commercial building construction
•    Residential or commercial extensions

The need for foundation repairs following residential or commercial building construction, generally occurs because of subsidence that can happen for a multitude of reasons: inadequate drainage, no drainage, leaking pipes, torrential rain, adjacent developments, tree roots and simply because it’s an older construction. These problems can also occur following foundation excavations or foundation extensions.

To solve these problems occurring, new homes and commercial constructions in Australia only use solid concrete for laying foundations and piers. So unlike other contractors, we only use SOLID CONCRETE UNDERPINNING PIERS to support your existing building; we do not use chemical gimmicks. Adept has extensive expertise in rectifying unsuccessful chemical injection methods. Read Pro's and Con's

House Underpinning and Foundation Repair Solutions

It’s important to note that when laying foundations, chemicals are never used as a support for new homes or commercial properties and when they are used for house underpinning, they are not successful. Importantly - imagine the effect these chemicals can have on our environment!

Fixing these foundation problems however, whilst vital to the structural integrity of the building, is only half of the battle – it’s just as important to rectify the cause. Adept’s wide range of services and expertise enables us to assess the issue, rectify the damage, and also offer solutions to prevent further damage to the building.

If you require further advice on using concrete or chemical underpinning for the remediation of residential or commercial foundations, we suggest that you ring an independent engineer for their advice. However, there will only be one answer - concrete underpinning for a lifetime of support!
As a leading residential & commercial construction company -  the licensed owner is on site at all times supervising for the duration of the project.

To discuss problems resulting from either residential or commercial excavations, as well as residential or commercial extensions, or to find construction solutions for your foundation problems, call our Expert house underpinning and foundation repair specialist in Sydney and Central Coast on 02 4363 2828 or shoot us an email.
