Please note: With any underpinning project an engineering certificate will be required, you will need to source an independent engineers report aimed at accessing the full extent of the damages.
Among the many reasons why a structural foundation might fail, environmental factors ranging from plumbing leakages to substandard existing foundations to the shifting of the ground beneath the residence can cause problems.
Additionally, as many neighborhoods in Sydney’s inner-west district such as Burwood, Canterbury, Leichardt, and others arose in a time before the adoption of modern building codes, many of these problems can be associated with older building methods. As a result, residences were often built on brick footings without expansion joints, or built on clay beds with a propensity for significant movement
Homes in these areas are susceptible to a range of potential issues including sunken piers due to them being built on brick footings, where there have been no expansion joints or on beds of clay that move significantly over time.
Whatever the cause however, BillCorp has extensive experience in foundation repair on small to medium residences throughout the greater Sydney metropolitan area. We specialise in residential underpinning, foundation repair, and footing replacement regardless of where your home is located within The Harbour City.

BillCorp’s Underpinning Process, and the Science of House Rising
As mentioned, we have extensive experience working with Sydney –based homes facing structural damage. As part of our initial consultation with you, we will assess the problems you are noticing while documenting the best reparative course of action. This aspect of the assessment will necessitate us poking about, digging some holes, while temporarily jacking up your residence to affect any necessary repairs.
When we discover a home that is essentially sound but the present foundation is beyond simple repair efforts, we are experts in the process of house rising and are completely versed in all aspects both structurally and legally to get the job done right.
A highly intensive undertaking, house rising begins by disconnecting all the utilities before strategically placing jacks at key locations under the house. Once the house is raised to the requisite height, repairs can be effective regardless of the problem.
Our years of construction, restoration, and renovation experience throughout Sydney’s inner-west areas make us the perfect choice when contemplating major home repairs. BillCorp is your trusted partner when it comes to raising and resettling your home, so call us for a consultation whenever you have a home improvement project on your horizon.
