The presence of extensive moisture in the foundation is another factor that can contribute to the need for reblocking and restumping a house.

House restumping costs will vary depending on the size and age of the property and also the amount of damage to the existing foundations. For a standard small three-bed room house the cost will be in the range of $12,000 and above.

In most cases, we can complete the reblocking works within 5 – 10 days.
Yes. We give a guarantee of ten years to all restumping works we undertake and complete.
  • In most cases, you do not have to leave the property however, if there is insufficient height under the sub-floor the floors will need to be removed 400mm which is the minimum clearance.
  • This would require the house to be vacant as well as furniture removal.
We take care of the plans and building permit required on your behalf.
This depends on the house and the type of plaster as some houses may only need painting and some may need to be replastered. You can rest assured that we try to minimize the plaster damage during the restumping process.
If we have a clearance of 400 mm underneath the house then there is no need to remove floor boards, however, if the clearance is less than 400 mm we will need to remove the floorboards to gain access. If the floorboards are in good condition they may be relayed. Which is a service we offer.
Reblocking should be the 1st step in the renovation process as house restumping post-renovation may compromise the level and damage any new renovations.
Reblocking and restumping refers to the process in which the old ‘blocks’ or ‘stumps’ in the foundations are replaced with new concrete stumps. Underpinning is the process where we dig under the strip footing and support it by a larger concrete pad increasing the size of the area of support, this is called a pin a house may need one or many of these pins.
We use the best quality concrete and steel stumps to replace the old deteriorating wooden stumps.
