So what exactly is the term house reblocking or restumping?
It is said that any house or building construction that happened before the 1960s in and around the Preston, Melbourne areas, the houses were at that time built on top of wooden blocks.
The thought behind reblocking is that the wooden blocks would add and augment the support to the house. But since the blocks were made of timber, gradual wear and tear, and termite infestation, the timber’s life expectancy reduced and a new house restumping which included raising and lifting of the house before it is carried out was required. And so as to not dismantle or tear down or renovate the house, restumping or reblocking for the house is resorted to. And as part of this, old wooden blocks were replaced with new blocks.
What is Underpinning?
On the other hand, underpinning, or concrete underpinning services is for the very foundation of the house. It is common knowledge that any house is built on a foundation. With time or gradual aging of the building, the foundation needs to be fortified and reinforced. And this is called underpinning.
