  • What does restumping mean for a house?

Otherwise known as house reblocking, restumping is a method used to remove existing stumps from underneath your home, replacing them with brand new, high quality ones in the process. As restumping will require the home to be jacked up for a temporary period, your floor levels will also need to be reset.

  • How do I know if my house needs to be restumped?

Are your floorboards starting to creak excessively? If so, we highly recommend getting in touch with a house restumping expert in Melbourne as soon as possible. Whether you live in a flood prone area or have termite damage around your home, house stumps can deteriorate and rot for a range of reasons. Unless your property is built on a concrete slab, a majority of older homes will need to be restumped at some point in their lifetime.

  • Can I restump a house by myself?

When it comes to restumping your Melbourne home, performing a DIY job is risky and will most likely do more harm than good. By contacting the experts with the proper tools and experience, your home can be restumped without compromising the structural integrity of your house. while restumping services have high costs attached, Melbourne homeowners can rest assured that the entire process will be completed by a professional properly from start to finish.

  • What do you use to pack a stump?

Essentially, a process known as the “jack and pack” is used when packing a stump. This method is used on concrete stumps that have sunk due to soil shrinkage, which can occur if the stumps were not installed correctly in the first place. The “Jack and pack” technique involves using a set of bottle jacks adjacent to the stumps, which lifts the bearer off the stump. Once raised, high density plastic packers are inserted into the gap between the stump and floor. If you’re looking for a cost-effective restumping service for your property, Melbourne residents can turn to Eastern Restumping & Underpinning today.

  • How long does it take to restump a house?

Depending on the size and scale of your house, restumping can take between one to three days to complete properly. For those with a complicated house structure or existing issues that need to be fixed beforehand, some house reblocking jobs in Melbourne can take a maximum of two weeks to finish.
