House Relevelling Quote

Posted 4 months ago

Hi, our house has issues with closing windows on one side of the house, along with bent weatherboards. We are thinking that the piles have sunk a small amount on one corner of the house. The house was built in 2011 roughly. We do not have a very big budget to fix this issue so are looking to get a few different quotes. I am in Whangarei 27th July to the 31st July if you'd like to organise a house viewing then. Thank you!
