These are the general signs to look for if you think your property may need restumping. Our team can carry out a free onsite inspection to determine the extent of any repair work required, providing free quotes for your convenience.
We’ll then take the necessary steps to secure the foundation of your home, which usually involves replacing rotten or damaged stumps with more reliable concrete or steel ones, and levelling the foundation. This can also involve creating a deeper foundation than before, to support any renovation work to the property.
