For over 35 years we have saved clients thousands of dollars in ‘re-build’ costs by simply and affordably realigning and remediating cracked or leaning sections of walls, columns or weakened structures. Jetis cover all aspects of residential and commercial properties throughout Perth and regional WA and have unparalleled experience in delivering tailored solutions for a wide range of clients.
Jetis is truly an independent ‘Underpinning Specialist’. If our methodology is not suitable for your site or general issue then we will not offer you a quotation, instead we will ascertain the best course of action for you, to ensure that the situation at your property is properly evaluated and your general requirement is serviced promptly, but most importantly, professionally. Clients that use Jetis can relax with the knowledge that ‘integrity’ is of paramount importance to us, as ‘client referrals’ form the major part of our business. Our clients value the fact we will not take a job for simple profit if the job is best executed by using an alternative technology or technique provided by another company.
The Initial Process:
Once we have diagnosed the issue at a clients property and confirmed that underpinning is required, Jetis advocate a ‘design before you sign’ strategy, to ensure that the most suitable underpinning technology for the property is selected. Jetis urge all clients not to rush the decision, either due to pressure from underpinning companies to ‘get the work underway’, or due to lack of knowledge regarding the best solution for the specific ground conditions at the property.
Not all sites or site conditions are the same, therefore the correct methodology and most appropriate treatment process needs to be properly ascertained before deciding on the specification.
Jetis will assess (free of any additional charge) the composition of the clients soil, to ascertain whether the specific soil profile is suitable for the proposed underpinning technique. Once profiled, the most appropriate technology will be selected thereby providing the client with the best solution for their specific site and issue of settlement.
There are various techniques and technologies available to achieve general ground improvement and soil strengthening. Improving the ground bearing capacity of the soil that a property is supported by is a key element of successful underpinning and the general remediation of the structure.
That overall ethos and general approach by Jetis is applied to all enquiries, whether they be a residential underpinning situation or a specific issue where a client has a ‘non-standard’ or civil engineering requirement. The technologies and techniques that are industry proven and carefully considered by Jetis on a project-by-project basis include:
- microfine cementitious grouts
- polyurethane resin injection
- various permeation grouts
- mixed polychem grouts
- isolated slab jacking
- ground anchors
- hydraulic piers
- epoxy grouts
- power piles
- screw piles
- soil nails
The independent nature of the Jetis site assessment is crucial in determining the best process for a client, as some companies that provide those various injection services could be deemed ‘unscrupulous’, and on some occasions have been known to recommend and undertake projects knowing that their injection treatment will not provide the client with the best outcome.
At Jetis, ‘The Jetis Difference’ has been proven time and time again, with numerous clients, to be the difference between a successful outcome and a disastrous experience where the client has proceeded without considering various aspects of the project, sometimes resulting in a waste of time, energy, and most importantly, money, as the underpinning process may need to be carried out again utilising a different technique or technology that is more suited to the site and specific ground conditions.
Jetis provide clients with total ‘peace of mind’ so that they know that their underpinning requirement (and issue of settlement or subsidence) has been properly assessed, evaluated and the correct Scope of Work has been carried out.
