5 Things you should expect from a professional restumping firm!

Updated: May 5, 2023

Restumping a house takes careful consideration

Restumping a house can be a significant and complex task that involves lifting the entire structure and replacing its old stumps with new ones. It's not a job for the faint-hearted or inexperienced, and therefore, it's crucial to hire a reputable and experienced company to undertake this task. Here are five key things that you should expect from a company that restumps your house.

  1. Professionalism and Expertise

One of the most important things to look for in a restumping company is professionalism and expertise. The company should have a team of highly skilled and experienced professionals who are licensed and insured to carry out this work. They should have a thorough understanding of the process involved in restumping a house and should be able to explain it to you in detail.

  1. Quality Materials

The quality of the materials used in restumping your house is critical to its long-term stability and safety. A reputable company should only use high-quality materials, such as hardwood or concrete stumps, that are designed to withstand the weight of your house and the soil conditions in your area. The company should also be able to provide you with information on the types of materials they use and why they're the best choice for your property.

  1. Clear Communication

Clear communication is essential when undertaking any major construction work, and restumping is no exception. A reputable company should keep you informed of every step of the process, from the initial inspection to the final cleanup. They should also be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have along the way.

  1. Competitive Pricing

Restumping can be a costly process, so it's important to find a company that offers competitive pricing without sacrificing quality. A reputable company should provide you with a detailed quote upfront that outlines all the costs involved, including materials, labor, and any additional fees. They should also be transparent about any potential additional costs that may arise during the project.

  1. After-Sales Support

A reputable restumping company should provide after-sales support to ensure your house remains stable and secure in the years to come. This may include a warranty on the work they've done, as well as advice on maintaining your house's foundation and preventing future issues.

In conclusion, restumping your house is a significant undertaking, and it's crucial to find a reputable and experienced company to carry out the work. By looking for these five key things - professionalism, quality materials, clear communication, competitive pricing, and after-sales support - you can ensure that you receive the best possible service and enjoy a stable and secure home for years to come
