Single pile replacement

Posted 5 days ago

Kia ora I am hoping to put an offer in on 11A Colchester Crescent on Thursday 6 May. The building report has identified a single cracking pile under the laundry that needs fixing/replacing - the report suggested replacing it with a timber pile. The pile is the only pile supporting the laundry and is easily accesible from the exterior of the building. I've attached photos of the pile. I would really appreciate a quote/estimate to provide to the banks to determine financing - if I'm succes...

Lean-to bearer beam

Posted 3 weeks ago

The end bearer beam underneath the lean-to bathroom (circa 1950's) needs to be repaired/replaced due to dry rot from years of unchecked rainwater exposure. The beam runs underneath the back door, with half the beam behind some concrete steps, and some plumbing running below the other half. The surrounding frame should also be inspected to determine if it also requires attention. Access should be relatively simple, but clearance below the house is a bit tight. Looking to have the work...

Rasied floor "humps" in middle of 3 rooms

Posted 2 months ago

There are some raised areas "humps" in the middle of a few rooms. Which may have been caused by the load bearing area of the rooms settling but the middle of the rooms which don't bear weight haven't settled creating these floor humps. The house has been repiled at some point with pre cast concrete pile which sit below timber bearers. And the subfloor has really good clearance almost enough to stand in so access to most of the house isn't a problem. I fix may be to notch the bearers down that...
