Gian Pacific Marketing Ltd------- 23 years in business now with our NZ Precision Piling Ltd

Precision Piling Ltd-- Repile services . We repile, underpin and level homes in Manawatu [not thru the gorge]; Wanganui, Horowhenua to Wellington only at this stage & we have booked work 2017 until further notice

Repiling of MOST houses is an ongoing business in NZ & with the recent Eathquake in Feb 2011 THEN AGAIN IN 2016 that devastated Kaikoura and even buildings in Wellington It is now important that your house or commercial building is safe. The 2016 Kaikoura earthquake was a magnitude 7.8 (Mw)earthquake in the South Island of New Zealand that occurred two minutes after midnight on 14 November 2016 NZDT (11:02 on 13 November UTC). These tremors were more devastating than earlier days with many homes and commercial properties being affected. With solid foundations & deep piles securing a house makes for a secure building but many of the older homes such as below are no longer up to earthquake specs and many will have to be demolished in NZ as they lack compliance and are structurally unsound in construction.

  • Wellington councils demolition of four buildings, including the Queensgate cinema.
  • One in five government workers in Wellington are currently without an office, as the IRD building closed for repairs.
  • Civil Defence's emergency response highlighted an "array of problems".
  • GeoNet gave a 16 per cent chance of a M7.0 or greater quake occurring. We might see two of these quakes in the next year.
  • Here's a list of quake-damaged Wellington buildings. 


Repiling & Lifting level of a house to safe depths is now very important as we are seeing with the houses moving and commercial buildings today they are no longer safe. Buildings crumbled into the streets after the 6.3 magnitude earthquake, which geologists consider an aftershock to a 7.1 earthquake that caused no casualties in September.

HOUSE REPILING is where a house has been sitting on wood or concrete piles supporting the home on its foundation. These piles have now split, moved, broken or rotted away causing the house to be uneven and leaning and needs replacing and the depth of the piles is not enough to hold your house in any earthquake such as just happened in Christchurch NZ.


The piles in a typical older NZ house were normally Totara logs with no concrete around them. They have been dug into the ground and then the bearers of the house sit on top with many piles not even securely fastened. Some piles in places like Wanganui house owners, used old 10 gallon kero containers and filled them with concrete then put them under a house with nothing holding them in place but just resting under the bearers and joists. In New Zealand homes, the older the homes are, the worse state they fall into and all houses on wooden piles will need replacing at some stage using the laetst H5 tani piles and this includes bracing. But it doesn't end there: now with new Council specs in place you must use stainless bolts and fastenings not galvanized and certainly not steel that will rust.. With new rulings coming into vogue after the now Christchurch earthquake you need to look at your piling situation & contact the experts for a free analysis.

Check the piles when buying a house and when selling a house to make sure they are secure and level as this alone will undervalue any home. Wooden piles rot over time but thats not the only thing as rot and insects also love the older woods so bearers may need to be replaced as well. In places like Opiki south of Palmerston North there are peat beds and the houses sink so they need to be repiled with strong tani or concrete piles and have a large base of concrete bedding. Some houses are repiled in part only and need the balance done but we inspect and show you what is needed to complete any job.

House Lifting & Repiling


Our team is currently in Australia & NZ on contract and we will be taking inspection bookings to check your home late 2017 in the lower North Island as from this date. Precision Piling: is taking orders for Home repiling and levelling quotes as from this date as have a full workload.

With over 45 years experience in the Building and House lifting game please send us an email or simply call to make an appointment. We cover the Kapiti coast to Wanganui, Horowhenua & Manawatu




In most if not all full repile work we undertake there may be a need to replace floor boards, weather boards, bearers and rotted joists etc. Sometimes you must remove all chimneys and relevel where needed but an inspectors report is a must as well as Council approval to NZ standards. Let us help you make your home safe..................

When your house needs repiling do not do any alterations to your home or extensions until this is looked at as the house will move once raised and relevelled by us. Even with new extensions which a lot of house holders have done over the years damage may occur when we level the house and we carry out this work. This includes the floors and the weatherboards or outside wall linings so when you get a quote this is all part of it.Make sure you budget for the full job as normally there are items and things that may occur that we must attend to.
