REPILING

An extensive but worthwhile investment, maintaining the foundations of your property is necessary to ensure the continued wellbeing of your building work. Call on the team of repiling specialists at Heritage Relevellers for top quality repair and conservation work.

What is repiling, and does my property need it?

Quite simply, repiling is the replacement of damaged or defected concrete or wooden posts (piles) that form the foundations of the building. Over time, piles can begin to rot, causing the uneven distribution of the weight of the house; in turn, this can cause uneven settling as well as movement of the ground under and around the piles.

The following signs can offer a clue as to whether your building is in need of pile repair:

  • Doors and windows do not close properly
  • Floors are at a slant or bounce as you walk through the house
  • Cracks appear in the plaster
  • Piles show visible damage

It will come as no surprise to hear that such deterioration can cause serious and ongoing damage to your property – not only that, but ensuing repair jobs can be both costly and time-consuming.

Effective pile repair can involve digging new piles down to its base, and replacing foundation piles where the previous installations have failed. Only through proper pile repair can we realign the building with its foundation.
