We had our house re-stumped about 7 months ago by D. J. Baker & Son, in East Bentleigh, Victoria, and we were/are very happy with their work. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we must thank Malcolm for his true professionalism. If you want to have a stress-free service for your restumping, we’d highly recommend D J Baker & Son.

"A big thank you to your company for a great job. Malcolm, Lachlan, Terry and Justin were hard-working, proficient and fun to have doing the job. Malcolm kept me informed about the procedures and timelines and all went smoothly.
Once again thanks for the good job."

John, Box Hill North

Thanks for all your hard work guys, it was a big job but you made it as painless as possible.. Really happy.

Troy Winney

Very happy with the end result. The quote was good and the work was on time with minimum disruption and no need to cut adjoining concrete paths. Two people did the work normally done by three without extending the quoted length of time. Don, Lee and Haydn were very friendly and helpful.

Peter Stokes

Thank you for the work done. The team under Damien was great and very easy to work with. Congratulations on a job well done. Feel free to contact me if you need a reference at any time.

We recently had four rooms restumped in March 2017 by DJ Baker & Son. When we first engaged DJ Baker, Don came out to inspect and made the effort to properly ascertain what was required and how the job could be completed efficiently. He took the time to work out what acess was best and how his team could gain access.

A very competitive price of $4,600 (which included building permit application) and the job was completed in two days!

Malcolm and his team arrived as planned and were straight into it. Although a tight squeeze underneath the house they managed to replace about 20 stumps as planned.

Highly recommend using DJ Baker for any restumping work. They are efficient, reliable and honest. Well done guys-really appreciate your work.


"Please extend our thanks to you + your team. We are really happy with how smooth this job went + the results. Your team worked really hard, through less ideal conditions and we really appreciate it.

Will absolutely keep you in mind if we ever need to restump in the future."

Emma, Watsonia

The guys have just left and they have made a big difference. The big cracks in the wall plaster have closed up (a few v new small ones have appeared, as Lee warned me about) and importantly, all the doors now open and close. We can now do a bit of plastering and painting knowing that the walls are stable. We will also have to replace our shower screen door because it is now out of square. I think the guys repacked about 6 stumps.

Please pass on my thanks to the team for a job well done.

Andrew Green

The house is awesome, I'm still getting used to a level floor where there used to be dips, it's quite disorientating! Such a thrill to close doors again after many years too 🙂

The guys were great and went to great lengths to make sure all doors weren't jammed and closed properly. I also have indoor cats and free range chooks and they were very careful to make sure the back door and gate was closed each time they came in and out, I'm very grateful.

They did a great job and were always very polite and kind


Mont Albert North

I just wanted to write and thank you for the work that you and your team did on our house. The results were better than we could have hoped for. The boys did a great job. They arrived when they said they would, they made sure we were across what was happening and the next steps. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Thanks again for all your hard work.


I definitely won’t hesitate to refer your service to others. Lee was very polite, professional and approachable and his workers were polite and friendly too. Regards Claudia & Raj.

Claudia & Raj

Job was done in a couple of hours. Good price. Happy customer.

Sofya Barysheva

Please pass on my thanks to the guys who did it and took the time to go through the house and explain what was going on. Singing under the house kept me well entertained. We will pass on your name to others in the future.


Thanks for a great job on the restumping of the house. We are very happy with how it has turned out.

Ron Thiele

Thanks Lee & Kerry, Damien and Jordan were great. Thanks for fitting the job in as soon as you could. I will definitely recommend you guys if I hear of any friends needing some restumping work!
