Considering the reputation for strength gleaned in the children’s story, “The Three Little Pigs,” it is easy to believe that your brick built home will last forever. The reality however is that brickwork can begin to break down from a variety of causes ranging from water damage caused by burst pipes to the natural settling of the ground beneath your house. Regardless of the cause, ignoring the warning signs is dangerous because it can lead to serious damage to the structural integrity of your property if left untended.
Typically, residential brickwork is required when brick piers need replacing or cracked walls need repair work. When pier problems begin to present a problem, the resultant signals can be first noted in the condition of the walls.
Sagging and cracking brick walls are an indicator that something seriously wrong is happening to your structural foundation. Other signs include uneven floors, sticking doors, and malfunctioning windows. The key to getting in front of this structural nightmare is consultation with seasoned experts who know how to recognise the warning signs for what they portend to your property.
Numerous factors might lead to the deterioration of your building piers, but if you are showing signs of disrepair, you can take heart knowing that you are far from alone.

Introducing Uni Pier
You'll never need another brick, concrete or timber pier again.
Uni-Pier is a superior pier replacing brick piers, concrete or timber stumps or painted steel posts.
Uni-Piers are a smart but simple piering system and designed to replace brick piers, concrete or timber stumps that in the past have been traditionally used as sub-floor supports.
When assembled, the piers are adjustable to the desired height, so eliminating inaccuracies that are often evident in concrete footings or pads.
Uni-Piers are non-combustible and will not rot, warp, shrink or harbour termites. Uni-Piers are designed to suit any normal domestic floor design and are able to support most roof and wall loads in all wind areas and are suitable for up to 5m fall in terrain.
