How Long Does It Take To Restump A House?

At Southern Stumping & Underpinning, we understand that the prospect of restumping your home can be daunting. That’s why we’re here to provide you with a detailed overview of what to expect throughout the process.

The Assessment Phase

The first step is a thorough assessment of your property. Our experienced technicians will carefully inspect your home, examining walls, floors, doors, and windows for any signs of foundation issues. We’ll also conduct a soil analysis to determine the appropriate depth for replacement stumps. This detailed evaluation allows us to develop a tailored plan to address your specific needs.

The Removal Phase

With our assessment complete, we’ll move into the removal phase. Using high-precision hydraulic jacks, our team will carefully lift your home, providing just enough clearance to safely remove the worn, damaged stumps. We take great care during this step to minimise disruption and ensure your home remains secure.


The Installation Phase

Finally, it’s time for the installation of your new stumps. Whether you choose steel or concrete, our experts will meticulously align the new supports with your floor framing, ensuring a stable and level foundation. Once the stumps are in place, we’ll gently lower your home back down, completing the restumping process.

Timeline for Restumping Completion

The timeline for your restumping project can vary depending on the size and complexity of your home. For smaller properties, the process can be completed in as little as 1-3 days. Larger homes with more stumps may require up to 10 days for a full restoration. Throughout the project, your dedicated project manager will keep you informed of the timeline and any potential delays.

Preparing for Restumping – Can you live in a house while it is being restumped?

We understand that having your home on temporary stilts can be disruptive. Our team will work closely with you to minimise any inconvenience. We recommend temporarily relocating during the most intensive phases of the project to ensure your comfort and safety. However, it’s not necessary to relocate if you don’t want to. If you choose to remain on-site, we’ll assist you in securing pathways and protecting your belongings.

At Southern Stumping & Underpinning, we’re committed to providing exceptional service and restoring the structural integrity of your home. With over 50 years of experience, you can trust that your property is in the hands of true professionals.
