If you live in Adelaide – you may not know that you are living on some of the most reactive soil in the world.

Over time, houses and foundations crack and sag, Ladhams & Sons Underpinning and crack repairs understands the problems caused by Adelaide soils and has years of experience in helping home-owners and property owners to combat the problems caused by this soil-profile.

While cracks can arise from a range of reasons, they may reveal a more serious problem with your home’s foundations.

Most people don’t know that soils with high clay content (such as the Bay of Biscay soil of Adelaide) is highly reactive to the extremes of weather conditions. In very wet weather the soil swells and expands – often pushing up foundations. In dry weather the soil contracts and shrinks – often causing subsidence. This is why your house and your foundations can crack.

WHAT IS UNDERPINNING?

Underpinning is a method used to restore the foundation. First the cause is identified and fixed. The process includes digging underneath the existing footings, piers can be made with concrete and the house is hydraulically jacked up and supported until the house is as close to original level as possible.

WHAT IS RESTUMPING?

Restumping (or re-blocking) is the process used to replace the original stumps which support the majority of weatherboard homes, the internal walls and floors of brick veneer homes, and the floors of solid brick residences.
