Minor foundation repair

Posted 9 hours ago

We noticed a crack in the door frame in the lounge area mid last year. It caused door jamming until a door guy fixed it earlier this year. A structural engineer visited our site & recommended an extra pile to support that area in order to prevent it from happening again! Can you help fix this defect to prevent further deterioration to the house.

100+year old cottage. Quotes for repiling wanted.

Posted 1 day ago

We've just purchased a small cottage on Russell St in Nelson and want to gather some quotes for repiling. We think it probably needs a full repile. 64m2 cottage, very low to the ground, so difficult to assess overall pile condition. Mix of existing piles that we can see are, stones, packed brick and a couple are wood. House is relatively level considering it's age. It's on flat land, though slopes either side, back cottage of two with a driveway to access.
