Reblocking and Restumping



A big question I am often by people is what is the difference between reblocking and restumping. In short both are the process of the replacement of foundation stumps. Generally due to age, but there can be other reasons the wooden stumps begin to fatigue start to deteriorate.


Suburbs in the Bayside areas such as Brighton, Hampton, Highett, Sandringham, Black Rock, Beaumaris, Mentone, Parkdale, Mordialloc down to Aspendale, Edithvale, Chelsea, Bon Beach, Carrum and in land to Bentleigh and Moorrabbin all suffer from issues requiring reblocking and restumping.


3 tips or signs to look out for, if you believe you might have issues with your foundation stumps:

  1. cracking of walls;

  2. doors not closing properly; and

  3. issues with roofs and leaking.
