WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
RESTUMPING AND HOUSE RAISING?
House restumping is when your home is raised temporarily to restore its foundations by removing and replacing the stumps underneath. Once the restumping work has been completed, your home is then lowered back onto its foundations once more.
House raising, on the other hand, is when your home is raised permanently. This work is often completed as a way to create more living space for homes on small blocks or to protect homes from water damage in flood-prone areas.
In Queensland, a house cannot exceed a height of 9.5 metres above ground level unless council approval is acquired. If you wish to raise your home any higher than this, we can help you obtain all the necessary plans, documents, and approvals so you can achieve your vision.
If your home’s stumps have begun to deteriorate through damage or time, it can easily affect the foundations of the building, causing several structural issues that require urgent attention. These issues can manifest in a number of noticeable ways, including:
- Slanted, drooping, or uneven floors
- Difficulty opening or shutting doors and windows
- Cracks in the walls of your home
- Visible damage in the stumps themselves
- Excessive exposure to flood waters
- Presence of termites/white ants
