What is Restumping

Restumping and reblocking (replacing) can be used interchangeably, especially when referring to foundation stumps that require replacement. These two processes employ similar methods.

The concrete or wooden stumps used for the foundation of a house can start to crack. When this happens, new stumps are used by contractors to replace old stumps.

Restumping is becoming a popular process in home improvement. It is in fact embraced by most homeowners. It is important for restumping to be carried out by an experienced and certified specialist. Even if most restumping charges are the same, the quality of work is not the same. Ensure you carry out a little research before choosing just any company for your restumping. You can even ask for references and read online reviews of customers who have had experience with the company you are considering. When it comes to house stumping, don’t choose just any contractor. Go for the every best.

The process of restumping or reblocking requires digging out and replacing the worn out foundation. Jacks are then placed to support the floor while new concrete stumps are used to replace cracked stumps. The whole process of replacement can actually affect the floors and walls of your house. Once you are done laying the new foundation, our experienced contractors can help you deal with any issues that may come up.

  • Timber and brick supports can be re-engineered with quality steel and we use a wide range of common steel profiles to aid our effective solutions.

  • Steel is an effective barrier resisting damage from termites, fire and corrosion (when galvanised and installed properly).

  • Houses can be hydraulically raised to allow safe replacement of problematic failing supports. Concrete footings can also be replaced as and when required and couple this with an engineered telescopic replacement column. A problem that looks tough to repair can be turned around with these stage by stage steps.

  • All affected areas are zinc primed, and then top coated to seal off exposure to the elements.

  • Most supports are made to measure and are fabricated in our premises and then sent to industrial galvanisers for hot dip treatment to the inside and outside walls of all sections. 


Reblocking and restumping are terms that describe replacing the old 'block' or 'stump' foundations of a home with new concrete stumps. Reblocking and restumping is mostly for older weatherboard homes which are raised off the ground with foundations. The terms basically mean the same thing.

What is restumping? Restumping, also known as reblocking, involves resetting (or replacing) the stumps on a house that uses a stump subfloor. This is normally necessary when the house stumps have settled as a result of soil movement, or when wooden stumps have rotted as a result of moisture in the soil.

The best course of action is to call a restumping professional rather than DIY restumping a house yourself. This is very important, as if this is not done correctly, you may be compromising the structural integrity of your home as well as the safety of your family.

Unless your property is built on a concrete slab, most houses need restumping at some stage. Older houses are built on timber stumps, which can last anywhere from 15 to 80 years, depending on a variety of factors.

Foundation stumps made of concrete offer more support, stability, and strength to the floors and walls of the house. The stumps are able to distribute the weight of the floors more evenly, which results in the foundation developing less wear and tear.As a material, concrete is non-combustible.
