House repiling specialists in NZ
If your house has uneven or bouncy floors (a common sign in older houses, villas and bungalows), or cracks in exterior plaster, bricks, concrete floors, foundations, chimney, chances are that you need repiling. House Lifters’ foundation repair solutions can include full replacement of foundation piles, ground stabilisation (e.g. underpinning) and re-levelling.
A team with proven NZ expertise in repiling
Our experience in assisting with disaster recovery in New Zealand (including repairing homes, foundations and remediating land damaged by earthquakes in Canterbury, Christchurch and Wellington), led to House Lifters developing innovative, safe and cost-effective repiling and foundation solutions.
Local knowledge is very important, for example House Lifters’ experienced Auckland repiling team understands Auckland’s geological challenges (e.g. volcanic subsidence, volcanic ash soils, and heavy clay soils).
Repile with or without lifting
We don’t have to lift the house to repile, and can access the piles internally, through the floors. Or we can perform a low or high lift with our unique mechanical jacking system. We then have much better access to dig out old piles, perform any ground stabilisation and strengthening required, then replace the piles and accurately re-level the house.
The silver lining of repiling
If your house needs to be lifted for repiling, you could take the opportunity to do a basement conversion and add a storey underneath, reposition the house, and/or make improvements – e.g. install underfloor heating, insulation, upgrade plumbing, replace electrical wiring – which would be difficult otherwise.
Thinking of renovating?
Particularly in older homes, before undertaking renovations, building or extension work (this includes putting gardens or lawn in, near the house), get your piles and foundation checked. If they need to be repaired or replaced, you’ll need to get it done before renovations start.
Repiling & insurance cover
For older homes, many insurance companies in New Zealand require the piles to be replaced as a condition of providing insurance cover.
