Reblocking and Restumping and floor joist repair with LevelMaster Products
LevelMaster are experts in suppling high-quality restumping and reblocking material. We started out servicing the Toowoomba and Brisbane region and have expanded our capacities so we can service all areas of Australia. The terms reblocking and restumping can be used interchangeably to describe the process of replacing the old timber stumps underneath your house with new, modern stumps. This process is done after the old stumps have either deteriorated or the soil has moved underneath. If the substandard stumps are ignored than the joists sag and bow. Any joist movement structurally weakens the house, causes cracks and jammed doors. Fixing floor joists or repairing a sagging floor joist can be achieved using LevelMaster adjustable stumps very rapidly. In addition to the easy install you can have your floor bearers and floor joists re-levelled quickly in the future.
Re-stumping a house is an expensive and tiring process which can be made easier with the proper product. LevelMaster is a trademarked, patented product designed for strength, durability and adjustment. Our range of superior products are the best in the business which save clients’ money and time.

Cost of restumping or reblocking
The cost of restumping or reblocking your house will vary depending on your needs, what products you use and who you get to do the job.
Usually, restumping/reblocking will cost you around $500–$700 per stump. Occasionally the cost can be a bit lower—around $400 per stump—as long as there are no unusual circumstances.
Just remember that someone quoting a cheaper price may end up costing you more in the long run if they turn out to be less skilled and experienced than they claim. Especially if they use inferior products and unfortunately, this can happen to the best of us.
While restumping, people often replace their stair stringers with LevelMaster adjustable fully galvanised steel stair stringers.
For a job done right the first time, trust LevelMaster’s reblocking or restumping expertise and world-class products, such as our house stumps (house piers).
How do I know my house needs restumping?
There are certain signs that your house needs restumping, including:
- cracks in the plaster
- uneven or squeaking floors
- doors that stick.
If you notice any of these signs, it’s important that you contact us as soon as possible. Therefore the longer you leave it, the worse these problems can become, making the job a bigger one in the end.
Even if you haven’t noticed any of these signs, if your house was built prior to 1960 and still has its original stumps, it will most likely need them replaced very soon, if not now!
