Foundation Repairs


Foundation Repairs

Newman’s specialise in the design and installation of foundation repairs. We use a combination of traditional techniques and modern methods of repair.

Foundation failure mainly occurs because of subsidence and poor construction and not so common “heave”.

The cause of subsidence varies but it is often caused by changes in the moisture of the soil that the foundations are built on. Failed drains, changes in the water table and poor soil conditions are all contributory factors.

Mature shrubs and trees within close proximity to the structure can increase the risk of subsidence by rapidly removing excessive amounts of moisture from the ground during dry spells.

Foundations can be repaired using micro-piles or shire piles, which provide fast and unintrusive methods of repair, or by means of traditional underpinning.

We offer a full design service including soil investigations, site feasibility, calculations, CAD drawings and full written reports prior to the construction phase.
