The Restumping Process

Here is our way of handling house restumping projects:

  • Call us – You jump on a consultation call with our customer service team to schedule an appointment.
  • House Inspection – We conduct a physical inspection of your house, to assess the condition of the house stumps. The soil around the foundation is cleared to expose the house stumps. The inspector will assess the condition of each stump, the condition of the soil and determine the ones in need of replacement.
  • Jacking up the house – The foundation is cleared up of any soil and obstacles to create room for placing hydraulic jacks. This will firmly support the house, making it safe for starting the reblocking process.
  • Digging out stumps – After the hydraulic jacks are installed firmly in positions, we dig out house stumps and make deep holes that reach the plate.
  • Levelling the house – While the house is still supported by hydraulic jacks, it is levelled with the aid of a computer. This helps to improve the accuracy of the levelling process.
  • Replacing house stumps – Once the level of the house has been determined, the process of replacing house stumps will begin. Depending on the type of stumps used, they are hung in their holes. Concrete is poured into the holes and left to cure for up to 48 hours before it can be loaded.
  • Repairing the floors and walls – Once the new stumps are inspected, the plinth boards are put back in place. If there are any areas in need of fixing, the reblockers will fix the problems that are connected to the restumping process.
  • Backfill and cleaning up – The team will backfill any excavation and clean up the place to make it ready for occupying once again.
