Are your doors jamming or not locking properly, and windows not opening or closing freely? Your house may require restumping as your timber stumps could have rotted, meaning your home is no longer sitting on a solid, stable foundation. If your home is already sitting on concrete or steel stumps, or brick piers, it may have just become out-of-level. This can be easily remedied by relevelling the home.
The process of restumping (another word for reblocking) involves replacing the existing timber stumps on which your home sits with new concrete or steel stumps . While that may sound like a daunting process, we do everything in our power to make it as simple and easy as possible for you and your family.
Any damaged subfloor timber can be replaced, and also termite (white-ant) protection provided where required. We prefer to use Kordon termite barrier, a quality product which provides a damp-proof barrier as well as termite protection. We find this to be a better option than metal ant-caps as ant-caps only provide an indication of the presence of termites, rather than actually controlling them. After all, how many people look under their homes to check for the presence of termites, and then call the pest-controller?
