Ten Questions to Ask a Restumper

Updated: Aug 8



Restumping or reblocking your home can be a daunting decision. How do you really know how big or small the problem is.

Before you engage with someone, make sure you really understand what you are looking to achieve.

Ask the potential contractor or company

  1. Do all the stumps need to be replaced?

  2. Will the floor be level at the current height?

  3. Are there any additional services and key replacements, such as joists to be replaced?

  4. What is internal damage likely to occur?

  5. If the existing floorboards will be lifted, will they be reinstated and what about carpet?

  6. Do I get a guarantee?

  7. Will the doors and window be operational post levelling?

  8. Will the old stumps be removed as part of the quote?

  9. Will the re-stumper organise the permits?

  10. Will there be an independent inspection?
