In such cases, restumping becomes extremely necessary. In fact, in some cases, the houses are needed to be shifted up from the level of the flood water in order to make sure that the foundation of the houses retains strength.
- Protection against disasters With changing climate all around the world, all places are at a constant risk of earthquake and other natural disasters. It becomes very important to have the kinds of sub-floors that are with stumps, which are ready to fight against these forces. So, it is better to have a regular inspection of these stumps and replacement must be done when needed.
Makes your house look new
Any kind of renovation done in the house makes them look fresh as new. It also changes the physical outlook of the house. If renovation is done keeping in mind the fashion trend in style. For example- if stumps are wooden, try to paint them with vibrant colors so that they add to the beauty to the house and make the foundation strong.
How is a House Restumped?
Crown Underpinning follows a comprehensive approach while restumping:
First and the foremost thing which is to be done is a proper inspection in order to find out the stumps that need to be replaced or restumped. This lessens down the burden of the work as you don’t have to replace the entire sub-floor. This is done using a level, in order to assess how even your floors are. Secondly, the stumps are also checked for any kind of deterioration.
Jacking the house
After this, the house is slightly jacked up, where the stumps need to be replaced and the existing stumps are replaced altogether.
Before wrapping the work, a final inspection is done to see any kind of pest infestation in the case of wooden stumps and repair them as well.
These days, when houses are re-stumped, it is usually done with galvanized steel or concrete stumps. These are better than wood as they don’t rot and are immune to termites. In fact, steel stumps are also re-adjustable on- site, which proves to be an advantage during the time of installation. It saves a great deal of cost, time and energy.
