Precision Piling-House repiling & House Lifting Specialists

Repiling of MOST houses is an ongoing business in NZ & with the recent Eathquake in Feb 2011 that has devastated Christchurch repiling of a house to safe depths is now very important as we are seeing with the houses moving as well as commercial buildings being insecure. 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. Tuesday’s tremor was more devastating with many homes 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.

REPILE: replace the old with the new H5 piles in your house

LEVEL: raise or lower to get your house level

UNDERPINNING: get your brick home footings under the walls restrengthened

HOUSE LIFTING: We have all the equipment to raise or lower your house whether it be concrete pad or on piles.

We also offer a 10 year GUARANTEE ON our work.

WE work to Council specs.

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. Now the recommended depth where liquification occurred is 8 metres @ 150mm piles. Thats a long way down but we have the pile drivers for this job.

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). damaged many buildings including houses moving on piles etc. In Wellington alone:

  • 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. 


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 sits on top. 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. 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.

You need to look at 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. But the wooden piles rot over time. 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.



We remove all chimneys and relevel where needed. In most if not all full repile work we undertake there will be a need to replace floor boards, weather boards, bearers and rotted joists etc.All rubbish and fill we remove off your site

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.
