    We replace sinking/loose/damaged foundation piles NZ-wide incl Auckland & ChCh. ... The silver lining of Repiling: If your house needs to be lifted for repiling, you ... to do a basement conversion/add a storey underneath, reposition the house, ... underfloor heating, insulation, upgrade plumbing, replace electrical wiring.

    If you are in Venice, then the house sinks below the water level of the Mediterranean Sea.

    Why would then need replaced? Without knowing that, the answer could be anything from NOTHING happens, to the floor collapses.

    That makes no since.  What pipes? what floor?  why do you think they possibly should have been replaced?

    Support posts / pilings generally last as long as the house (or at least you) but moisture or bugs can ruin them, in which case you do need to replace them, or else the house floor will begin to sag, then get worse (!)

    A picture would help. It depends on what you are calling "piles."

    You will have structural failure and the repair will be even more than now.  You will have to redo the piles plus what ever new that has broken.  If it is not repaired, the failures will continue and there will be eventually a collapse of the house.  Look at an old, abandoned house and figure out how it failed.

    Your house could fall down.
