House Levelling and Foundation Repairs in Christchurch

A common earthquake repair is foundation levelling. During the Christchurch earthquakes, your foundations may have settled, making it unstable.

If foundation levelling is deemed necessary for your earthquake repairs, Wrightway Construction will re-level your house using a hydraulic jacking system. This technique lifts your structure or foundation in small increments avoiding any further consequential damage to your property.

In Christchurch, most homes that have been earthquake damaged, do require some form of foundation repairs and re-levelling.

Quality Control When House Levelling

Wrightway will continuously quality control the procedure by testing the opening of your doors, cupboards and windows to ensure the house is adjusted evenly and correctly. While re-levelling your foundations, it's an opportune time for you to consider underfloor insulation if required.

No Obligation Quote And Inspection 

For further information about foundation re-levelling or if you'd like a no-obligation quote, please contact us. Wrightway Construction will inspect your property and help you process the EQC claim also.

If you’ve had earthquake repairs completed, and you’re not satisfied with the results, then Wrightway construction can easily assist with a professional reassessment report & help you through the process with EQC to have your home repairs managed quick & snappy.

On-site House Levelling Inspections For Foundation Repairs

One of Wrightway's senior advisors will visit your home to carry out an inspection for any damage you may have experienced during the earthquakes to your foundations. We'll document all of the areas that require repairs and prepare information that can be submitted to the insurance companies or EQC. This consultation from Wrightay is free.

Foundation Repair Inspections - Scope of Works

Wrightway will then prepare the appropriate documentation and detailed cost-estimates in a report. This scope of works will be detailed and prepared appropriately to be sent to EQC or an insurance company. We collate any information about your home that makes the claim process easier for both you, and the recipient.


You'll be provided with a timeline and milestones, for the duration of your foundation repair project. You'll be given information on what to expect and how and when accessing your home is appropriate and safe. From the moment Wrightway enters your home to commence repairs, until the time of completion, can vary, depending on the severity of your foundation repairs required. It's best to prepare your family and living arrangements as best as possible to suit, but we talk about this with you in detail, before the process begins.
