- Do you have uneven or slanting floors?
- Is your tile floor starting to crack?
- Are your plaster walls and cornices cracking?
- Do you have extensive moisture in the foundations?
- Are you considering a major renovation to an older home?
- When was the last time you had a look under your house?
We replace your old timber stumps to new hard, solid concrete stumps. Before you do any renovation, make sure you restump your floors and make sure they are levelled.
What we do – The process
- First, we remove the plinth boards and place jacks all around the house to support the home and jack it up and work our way in.
- Then we dig holes until we reach the plate; most of the measurements are 300x300x300mm at a depth of 450mm.
- Remove old timber stumps.
- Check if any rotten bearers and joists that need to be replaced.
- We then hang all the stumps over the holes to bearers and beams and leave around 15 to 20 cm under the stump to pour in the concrete.
- Before we pour the concrete, we level the entire house with a 100% laser level, then we arrange for an inspection to see if all works have passed inspection within the building regulations. Once approved we commence work and we pour in the concrete using a concrete pump around the concrete stumps to hold them in place and support the foundation of the home.
- Wait 24-48hrs for concrete to set then remove jacks, level soil out under the house and clean up.
- We make sure that the job is well done, and to the costumers expectations.
