Poor Foundations

Client: NHBC Duration: 8 weeks Location: Chesire

The detached double garage with cinema room was suffering from subsidence owing to poor foundations. This led to cracks appearing in the brickwork and render which could have resulted in the collapse of the building.

  • All the fixtures and fittings were removed, including the staircase, internal walls, doors, and concrete floor. This allowed the specialists to install new concrete piles in the ground to underpin the whole building and stabilize movement.
  • Once completed, a new concrete floor was laid, and the internal blockwork wall replaced. Walls and ceilings were re-plastered, giving them a fresh coat of paint and the original fixtures and fittings replaced.

The homeowner now has a usable garage and cinema room finished to professional standards and specifications. Most importantly, they have peace of mind there will be no further issues.
