We use concrete (or steel for higher houses) to replace the stumps of Weatherboard or Timber Clad houses, which are almost always made of timber.
These types of houses are double brick for both external walls and internal walls, and the brick goes down to a concrete or bluestone foundation.
These houses have a timber frame and a single brick veneer on the outside and brick piers around the perimeter to support the perimeter frame, internal walls and floors are supported by stumps.
Some old houses have been sitting on the ground for so long that most of the floor frame timbers are rotten or have been attacked by fungus or termites.
In many houses, particularly inner city homes, the houses are built very close to the ground and have no access to the sub-floor, so in this case we need to remove the floorboards to access the stumps.
Able Reblocking is based in Melbourne, Victoria. We have been operating since 1995, providing re-stumping services to home owners throughout Melbourne.
I am so happy with the work you have done, and I appreciate you taking the time to keep me informed throughout this process. I would be very happy to recommend you!
Thank you also for recommendations i.e. chippy, plumber, electrician, plasterer - this has been a enormous help.
All my best,
