Restumping Cost Factors

The cost of restumping varies based on several factors:

  1. Number of Stumps: The more stumps that need replacement, the higher the cost.
  2. Height of Your Property: Lower houses may require more labour and excavation work, while higher houses could involve the use of specialised equipment.
  3. Soil Conditions: The condition of the soil underneath your house can impact the complexity of the job. Professional soil tests are recommended.
  4. Project Phases: If the restumping must be done in sections, costs can increase due to multiple visits.
  5. Existing Foundations and Stump Holes: Reusing existing foundations and stump holes can save both time and money.

What is Restumping?

Restumping, is a critical process that involves restoring and fortifying the foundational structure of a residential property. This becomes necessary when the existing stumps, which support your home, show signs of wear and tear, such as cracks, sinking, or instability. Opting for restumping ensures your property’s long-term structural integrity. It’s very important to stay alert to your house’s stumps as a homeowner, as leaving them damaged can lead to dangerous, expensive long-term effects that can impact the building. 

The restumping process is a multi-step procedure that begins with a comprehensive assessment of your property’s stumps and floor level. This assessment helps identify signs of damage or unevenness and evaluates the soil composition and stump depth. After the assessment, the existing stumps are carefully removed, using specialised equipment and techniques. This step may also involve excavation work in some cases. The old stumps are replaced with new ones, precisely positioned and adjusted for optimal load-bearing capacity and stability.

When you choose LevelMaster’s adjustable steel stumps, you benefit from quicker installation and adjustments (reblocking), saving both time and labour costs.
