Do yourself a favour and get Les of Adept Underpinner to do your structural repair work. He starts by keeping promises. When he says he will turn up and quote, he does. Looking over the problem, he is full of practical, sensible solutions and suggestions. On site, his work it meticulous with attention to detail. Cuts into existing brickwork are neat and careful. Steelwork is accurately measured and carefully fitted together. His restoration brickwork around difficult shapes was neat, and in fact, better than the origianl. Quality work that is durable , strong, functional and well-presented is worth any price. Les is easy to like.

“Thanks for the good work. We appreciate the time you took to explain the details to us and the fact the place has been left in a tidy state.Also the windows have stopped rattling!”
“Thanks for getting the job done as quoted. It looks good. Your clean-up was incredible too. That’s rare! I think your ‘point-of-difference’ between you and others tradespeople is that the man who pays the wages is the man on site controlling the job – you can see the difference. I’d be happy to recommend you, and use you again. Thanks again.”

“I recently engaged Adept Underpinning to undertake some tricky drainage work around my house. I have to say that I was truly impressed with the way that Les and the boys went about rectifying, what had been a major headache for me in regards to storm water entering under the house. They were very thorough in every detail, exceptionally hardworking, and innovative in coming up with solutions to any problems encountered on the job.I was also very pleased with the cost of the job. I would have no hesitation whatsover of strongly recommending Adept Underpinning to anyone. February 2010”

– Thanks Les! Quynh, Point Clare
Just a note to let you know how satisfied we are with the underpinning job you did for us. I was amazed that I actually had to refer to the “before” photos i took to figure out where the crack was. Fantastic and tidy work, we would be more than happy to recommend you any time.

Les helped to underpin the front wall on my 150 year old terrace house in Newtown which is built on soft clay and was moving. He explained everything in a lot of detail, which gave me a lot of confidence in what he was doing. The underpinning has been a success with the cracking now stopped and the house seems to have settled. After some cosmetic work on the wall, you wouldn’t know it had been done at all. Thanks to Les who was a great help during a stressful time, and for fixing my house!

Les & Lisa , Thank you for all your interest and hard work in improving my home. I wish both of you a happy life and once again many thanks for all your help/assistance and advice.
– Helen, Seaforth
Thank you very much for all your help. I found the brief conversation with Les more informative than the many I have had so far with builders trying to understand the problem.
– Emma, Petersham
Les solved the problem when no one else could. He is a master at seeing where drainage/pumps etc needs to be and installs quickly and professionally. No question is too small for him. Lisa is fantastic in the office – quick to reply and has a fantastic memory! Highly recommend Les.
