Your Home’s Foundation – A Guide To Replacing Timber Stumps

By May 23, 2024 No Comments

The foundation of your home, comprised of stumps, bearers and joists, holds immense responsibility as the structure that physically supports your entire property.

Over time, timber stumps can deteriorate and degrade due to elements like termites, rot or subsidence.

It’s important to be aware of signs that your stumps may need replacing such as cracking in walls, floors that feel bouncy or uneven, sticking doors and sagging structures.

While DIY repairs can sometimes be attempted, major stump replacement or re-blocking requires real expertise to do properly.
