An Underpinning Service for Master Builders



As a member of Master Builders Queensland, Foundation Solutions live up to that name by providing outstanding foundation and underpinning services to all our clients. We also enjoy working with like-minded companies in the building industry who are great at what they do and strive for the best outcomes for their clients.

As such, we developed a special service for our fellow Master Builders to help them out when they have foundation problems to deal with - for example on a recently built home that is showing signs of foundation movement, or on a renovation project that needs the foundation assessed prior to commencing any works.

GETTING CLARITY ON structural foundation problems

If you’re a builder dealing with a complaint for a structural or foundation defect on a home that is within its warranty period, you’re going to want to get to the bottom of the matter quickly. You need to understand the extent and cause of the claimed defect, as well as where responsibility for resolving the matter lies.

Similarly for a home renovation, a builder may require structural clarification on a home with dubious foundations.

There are a few compelling reasons for a builder to get an expert assessment of a building - even where fault does not lie with the builder, or where the defect is within acceptable limits - such as to maintain brand reputation and reduce exposure.

The Underpinning Appraisal Report

Our service involves a full assessment of the property – inside and out – to determine the extent of the structural problem due to foundation movement. We provide recommendations for further action where required, including forensic engineering and underpinning, and a fully costed assessment to restore the house.

This is delivered in a professional report that becomes a useful tool in the dispute process, provide clarity and certainty for all parties. And we do it all for free, with no further obligation on the builder or their client.

If you’re a master Builder and this is of interest to your company, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us.
