Houses on concrete stumps or brick piers which have been built, usually in the 1970's or later usually brick veneers should have concrete stumps. These houses usually need to be reĀ­levelled and packed with specially desgined and engineered packers. Common cause in this case is reactive soils, where the soil is failing and not the concrete stump or brick pier. Usually towards the middle of the house where he soil is at its driest.

Symptoms
