Professional Reblocking in Melbourne

Do the doors of your home not close properly? When you walk in your home, do the floors move unnaturally? You may need a reblocking (restumping) company.

At Australian Reblocking, we specialize in offering efficient and professional reblocking and re-levelling solutions to strengthen weak structures and bring houses back to the correct level. With our years of experience, we have a complete understanding of construction techniques and can ensure that your building is structurally sound. Whether you need help with reblocking or looking for an efficient jack and packing service, we can help you get rid of recurring sinking issues.

A weak ground can result in subsidence leading to an uneven structure. Extreme weather and change in the soil condition can also lead to structures moving downwards. When a structure undergoes subsidence, the foundation of the building is not supported correctly and can cause structural damages. With our remedial solutions for stabilizing structures, we can help you get a level structure. You can completely rely on our proficient service for all your house reblocking needs. For over 40 years, our experts have served people in the Melbourne area and successfully re-supported, raised and re-levelled homes.

If you’re renovating or have noticed the tell-tale signs that your house may need restumping, then it’s best to call in a professional team. It’s important that the foundation of your property is well supported, as, over time, the soil may shrink due to draught, making your home unstable. If your windows and doors are no longer closing properly, or your floors are starting to sag, the experts at Australian Reblocking will be happy to help you.

House restumping and levelling is a large job and can be dangerous. With over 45 years of experience, Australian Reblocking is the house restumping expert you can count on and can restump either your entire house or part of your house with quality new stumps in your choice of steel or concrete.

When it comes to building a home’s foundation, concrete slabs are the most common choice. However, a lot of homes in Melbourne are built on stump subfloors. A stump subfloor foundation allows you to build any type of home on any surface, even a sloping surface. When you are looking for a solid foundation even near to the coast, wood or concrete stumps can come really handy.

Jack and Packing Melbourne

Jack and Packing

Jacking and packing is the process where we reset and level the internal floors and walls that have moved due to soil and timber shrinkage after a building is constructed. These issues generally come up several years after completion. We specialise in identifying these problems and providing a professional solution with our jacking and packing services in Melbourne. We begin by obtaining the floor levels and identifying the areas that need attention. We will lift the house with the help of hydraulic jacks to kick-start the process of jacking and packing. Our specialists will then install building grade packing material to straighten the door frames and level the internal walls. Once done, we will confirm the flooring levels.

How Our Service Works

We begin with an inspection of your floors using a level. By inspecting the flooring level, our specialists will be able to identify the extent of the slope in your floor and subfloor and determine if it might be dangerous. In fact, if the slope is within the acceptable range, you might not even have to consider reblocking. Next, we will inspect the concrete or wood stumps and the foundation. We will check for water damage, wear and tear and other factors that could have caused the stumps to sink further into the soil or rot away. If we notice cracks in the concrete stumps or notice that the wood stumps have begun to rot away, we will place a series of jacks to support the home while our experts remove and replace all the damaged stumps. And if we detect foundation issues or stump subfloor issues, you will need much more than restumping. When you hire Australian Reblocking, you can be sure of getting a complete solution.
