Many houses built in Melbourne prior to 1960 were built on top of timber stumps that not only supplemented the strength and stability provided by the house foundations but also ensured that the house would be level thanks to the precision of their installation. But over time, these timber stumps can become vulnerable to rot and termite damage. The natural movement of the soil also means that the stumps can move too, causing the house to become uneven and potentially suffer damage itself. House restumping in Melbourne involves replacing the damaged wooden stumps and replacing them with concrete stumps that will last longer and won’t succumb to rot or termite damage.

Our stumps are concrete stumps which are built to last much longer than wooden stumps, which is why we are confident in giving a fifteen-year guarantee on our work. In the past, wooden stumps were used for the foundations of houses and over time the wood rots. The concrete stumps have sunk a minimum of 450mm into the earth and concreted into place.
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 applied mostly to older weatherboard homes which are slightly raised off the ground with their foundations. The terms can be used interchangeably.
Underpinning is the process of fixing a properties foundation and returning the home to its original level if that property's foundations are a concrete slab. This mostly applies to brick veneer homes. Typically a concrete slab will, over time crack and sink into the earth at one spot or another. We prop up the slab (or underpin the slab) with a number of 20-tonne jacks where it has sunk and we fill the space with concrete to elevate the slab to its original flat level.
