Brick Pier Foundation Repairs
Adept specialises in both brick pier foundation repairs and cracked brick wall repairs for both residential and commercial buildings in Sydney and the Central Coast. A lot of older buildings are built on brick piers that support the floors, load bearing walls and roof, but over time these brick piers can degrade, shift, sink or crack, resulting in severe structural problems.
More often than not however, the first signs that you need a brick pier repair job is when you see large cracks in the walls and floors, gaps under skirting boards, cracked cornices, uneven or sinking floors, or doors jamming; all of these signs can be due to problems with sinking foundations.
At this point, it’s clear that you need the expertise of pier repair specialists to assess your foundations and decide on the best course of action. Whether this involves a complete pier replacement or just brick repairs, it’s essential that this remedial work is performed as soon as possible to prevent the problem becoming worse.
Brick or steel piers?
Options for pier replacement include setting steel piers in concrete footings or rebuilding the brick piers from the base up. At Adept, our pier repairs focus on bricks and concrete, as these provide the best structural support for most buildings. The only reason you might opt for steel piers is if they need to go down a very long way to reach solid ground.
How to fix cracks in walls
Fixing cracks in walls can only be done when you have repaired the piers and any underlying issues that led to the foundation problems in the first place. There’s no point in paying for a wall crack repair job, when it’s only going to happen again, if the piers aren’t fixed.
With nearly 40 years’ in the building and construction industry, you can trust that we know how to repair a broken wall! We will complete your wall repairs, as soon as we have repaired your brick pier foundations.
