HI- I live in an older building- 1950s/60s. I’m on the ground floor. I have floorboards- they are the original. I am in the Eastern Suburbs- Sydney
Issue 1: Floorboards are squeaky
Some appear to be lifting along the beam.
I think this problem has increased since we had our piers lifted by the injection of foam by URETEK in an attempt to decrease building cracks.
Questions: What is the strata’s responsibility re fixing this?
Can anyone recommend a company to inspect and quote re repairs?
Issue 2: Heating and cooling escapes through the floorboards.
You can walk under my building. The floorboards are exposed, i.e. there is no insulation. The ground below is soil/dirt. Even with a gas heater running I can feel the cold at floor level- even above carpet.
Question: Is it normal for there to be no insulation in the building?
Does the strata have any liability/responsibility?
I have found a product- expol used for underfloor insulation- would the strata be liable for this or would this be at my expense?
