House Foundation Repair Specialist in Melbourne

Probably the biggest and most important investment you will ever make is your home. Structurally, the most important aspect of any building is its foundations. However, there are many events that can happen which can damage the foundation, and may cause the need for restumping repairs to make a home stable and safe once more.

Some causes of house foundation damage are:

  • Time
  • Moisture
  • Trees
  • Renovations
  • Seasonal Weather
  • Vibration

There are many telltale warning signs that indicate the need for a foundation repair service on your home or a house you are thinking of purchasing. These can include:

  • Doors not close correctly and creaking.

  • Floors sloping.
  • Rotten stumps.
  • House being over thirty years old.

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.


Thank you for the works, and the pleasantness of the team of workers who were nice to have around, Sincerely.

"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

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.


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

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.

Andrew Green

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

We were very pleased with your firm’s service and prompt attention.

Damian Taylor Morrell & Koren

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.

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

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.
