Building foundations

Posted 1 year ago

We have a pile underneath the house that needs inspecting. Our building inspection when we bought the house said "Two bearers in middle area of house are not supported by timber piles and require packing. Bearer is joined adjacent to one of these piles and pile is not supporting this connection. This could be easily remedied by adding support to side of pile" Now we think the house is slowly moving e.g. doors swinging weird. We need to know if this is related.
