Our Underpinning Method

All of our underpinning piers are drilled to a suitable depth to achieve maximum strength. The drilling equipment is a hydraulic tripod system which took a number of years to develop to obtain the best portable machine in Australia.

The machine can be taken inside dwellings (ideal for full brick homes), down narrow access sides and tight fitting back yards with basically no mess at all. The auger sides are 300mm, 400mm and 600mm and can be drilled to a maximum depth of 7.2 meters.

There are no other of these machines in Australia therefore it makes Surefoot Underpinning Specialist very unique to the underpinning trade.

Before Mark started working for himself he worked for various underpinning companies and noticed the lack of machinery to do the job right. Some of the other machinery included a shovel, jackhammer, bobcat or excavators which can turn your biggest investment into a mud pit.

Therefore, if you use Surefoot Underpinning Specialist you can be reassured that your yards will look the same if not better when we leave.
