House Levelling With Meier

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES BRISBANE RESIDENTS TRUST

As the years pass and foundations worsen and decay, a house can begin to sink. It might be because of structural damage, volatile soil, erosion, plumbing leaks or tree roots. These factors might make a house sink at one end, or even in multiple places. However, Meier House Removals can perform house levelling services to re-balance your home and ensure stability.

House levelling is required to ensure structural stability for house removal and relocation. Levels are established to deliver strong support for the house structure, using stumps to provide that support. House levelling is also used to correct structural risks and problems with stumps which may damage the house.

Our house levelling service at Meier House Removals involves lifting a home back to near its original state. With any house relocation service, house levelling is an important step in the process for ensuring structural stability. It involves building a house on stumps, adjusting and packing stumps to increase support. Often, house levelling will require a foundation repair.

All aspects of house relocation involve top-quality, professional service and precision placement. House relocation involves strict building and construction standards in all aspects of planning, relocation and positioning. Your house relocation professionals will take every precaution to ensure that your house levelling service is conducted perfectly, eliminating risk.

With over 30 years of experience, Meier House Removals are the professionals you can trust to level your home accordingly. Contact us on 0738491122 to find out more or get a quote.

Signs You Need House Levelling

Houses need to be levelled when they become unstable or skewed for a variety of reasons. Levelling is the replacement, packing or adjustment of existing stumps that are causing the house to be off-kilter. Some key signs that levelling is necessary are if doors and windows don’t close or aren’t as flush as they used to be and if floors are slanting or dipping in the centre of rooms.

WORKING WITH YOUR SURVEYOR

In our 30+ years of experience, we’ve found that working with a surveyor in the final stages is vital to ensuring your desired height and position on a block are clearly indicated to our team. We pride ourselves on making sure your house is perfectly positioned the first time.

OPTIONS FOR RESTUMPING

As part of the repositioning process, Meier House Removals fixes new horizontal crossbeams to reinforce the base of your home. Once your house is in its desired position, you have the choice of using our experienced team or your own builder to re-stump the structure.

Frequently asked questions

For safety reasons, the tenant cannot stay in the home throughout the process as power and plumbing will be affected.

The average house slide, spin and raise can take between 2-4 weeks from start to finish. It is extremely helpful to have clear engineering plans and soil tests to ensure your project is on time.

Cleaning up after a site is not factored into our costs but we are happy to arrange it for you if you desire.

For a seamless process, ensure you have:

  • Engineering plans
  • Soil tests – very important if we are re-stumping for you
  • Building plans
  • Form 16 – issued after a surveyor has inspected the new site
